Beamish and District Golf Club

HER Description

NEHL - Part of Beamish Museum was previously a 12 hole golf course, established in the mid 1900s by the Beamish and District Golf Club as a 9 hole course which was extended to 12 holes in the 30s. Membership in 1913 had extended to 60, with the secretary being Mr G L Wilson. However by 1914, membership had swelled to 1915.

An auction took place in 1942 with Beamish Golf Club selling all its assets, including equipment, furnishings, kitchen furniture and utensils. This is as well as a number of buildings including the clubhouse, locker rooms, an iron hut and wood hut.

The course is labelled on the 1919 Ordnance Survey map, though illustrates a little apart from a single bunker and a collection of small buildings.
