Following is an extract from a report that appeared in the Sussex Agricultural Express on Friday 3rd May 1912. "There was a good attendance at the annual meeting of the Beckley Golf Club held at the Parish Hall on Friday afternoon last week. Mr F W Vine I.S.O., presided, and among others present were; The Rector (the Rev Arnold Edgell), W H Blackmore and J H Bennett. The minutes of the last meeting were read and passed. The Chairman then read the balance sheet for the past year, showing a substantial amount in hand. After considerable discussion, it was unanimously resolved to devote the surplus to the improving of the links. The membership of the club, according to the annual report, has increased, about 70 being on the books. The election of officers ensued; Mr F W Vane, president; Mr J H Bennett, secretary. A large committee was also elected. The Green Committee reported that additional holes had been added, and the final question before the meeting was the raising of the subscription. It was decided to increase all fees to new members."

Mr George Forbes Bentley, a member of the Beckley Golf Club, died suddenly after a round of golf on Friday 10th May 1912. He had recently been elected on to the committee of the club. He played golf on the morning of his death with Colonel Tweedie, Captain King and Rev E W Wade Brown.
