Denham golf club 09 08 14
Denham Golf Club is a golf club in Higher Denham, Buckinghamshire.
The formation of the Club was conceived at a meeting in August 1910, by seven local gentlemen and the archives record the issue of shares in December 1910. The course was opened for play in May 1911, although payment for the services of H.S.Colt as course architect is not recorded until September 1911, whilst he was still acting as the first secretary of Sunningdale. The Clubhouse was created out of a 16th-century tithe barn and farmhouse and the Dining Hall, with its exposed beams and brick walls adorned with the former land-owner's hunting trophies provides a unique atmosphere which is truly memorable.
The golf club gives its name to the nearby Denham Golf Club railway station, although the station primarily serves the village of Higher Denham rather than the club as nearly all golfers reach the Golf Club by car. The station is on the Chiltern Main Line from London Marylebone and enables visitors from London to walk across the 11th fairway to the clubhouse in a matter of minutes.
The course benefits from a gravel sub-soil which drains extremely well and enables play all year round. It is a favourite venue for a number of societies who return each year to sample the catering delights as much as the playing of golf.
