Situated at the end of Dodford Lane, Girton, the club has progressed a very long way since its foundation in 1936 as a nine hole course.
In 1965 the members purchased the freehold of the course and set up a company controlled by them, - and the club has never looked back. More land was purchased, and the course was extended to 18 holes in 1979 and the spacious new clubhouse was opened in 1992. The present highly manicured parkland course is very different from the early days when club members cut the fairways themselves
with a gang mower towed behind an old Austin Seven. Nowadays, the green-keeping staff has all the modern machinery required to keep the course immaculate and the greens perfect.
Continuous investment has taken place in remodelling the course, in planting, drainage and implementing a full irrigation system to the greens and tee areas. The course is now a visual delight with a profusion of trees and flowering shrubs bordering its fairways and boundaries. There is also an abundance of wildlife seen at the club both in the skies and on the ground – it is always worth looking up when playing
the course just to see with whom you are sharing the fairways. The famous black squirrels can still be seen although their numbers appear to be in some decline of late
The keen golfer will find that whilst the course is comparatively flat it is quite tight and represents a testing challenge of accuracy and control. It is a par 69 of 6012 yards, with two particularly challenging short holes of some 133 and 138 yards (the 4th and the 17th) and an exciting final hole which at 565 yards is one of the longer in the county. from the ladies tees the course presents an interesting and demanding 5417 yards at a par 72.
