DID U KNOW?

Residents of Lawefield Crescent and its various ‘legs’ and the ‘Corrie’ estate may or may not know that their properties are built on an Edwardian Golf Course. The club and its nine hole course appeared prior to WW1, described at the time as a “semi-private” club. 

Clifton was added to the growing number of clubs around the Manchester area in the 1900s. The exact start date is yet to be found but it was appearing on an O.S map in 1909 (see below).

It was reported in January 1913 that club membership was 85. Officers of the club as follows; president, Mr Laurence Pilkington; captain (and also a keen CCC cricketer), Dr J W Chambers Herbert; secretary, Mr J T Fogg; treasurer, T A Crompton. The last annual meeting was held on Saturday 10th January 1913 and it was hoped that a prosperous future was in store for the club and members.

The course disappeared following WW1
