About Knutsford Golf Club

Knutsford Golf Club

Knutsford Golf Club is a private members Golf Club renowned for its golfing ethos, heritage, and friendly atmosphere. We are continuously improving the golf course and facilities providing an enjoyable and challenging experience for golfers of all ages and abilities.

We welcome new members, visitors and golf societies.

The Club has existed on its unique site next to Tatton Park since 1891 initially, as a nine-hole course and then with the 10th hole added in the 1980’s. We like to think this makes us a little unique!  With our 130-year history, we are a modern and progressive club where a strong culture exists to create a relaxed and friendly environment. We have, over the years, gained the reputation as one of the friendliest and accommodating clubs in the area; a reputation we work hard to retain.

The golf course provides our members and  guests with a unique opportunity to play one of  the country’s finest 10-hole golf courses. The layout allows a quick nine or 18 holes of competition golf fitting with today’s busy lifestyles.

Most importantly, at Knutsford, we provide a friendly, relaxed and inclusive golfing and social environment that positively contributes to our members and guests  lives and well-being. We aren’t stuffy, we like having fun and our ethos is captured in the Clubs guiding principles:

  • Inclusive, fostering a spirit of friendship and belonging
  • A private members club “for the members by the members”
  • Maintaining the traditions of the club and golf within the changing social framework
  • Developing the golf course, a challenging test of golf, enjoyable for golfers of all abilities
  • A high quality and comfortable clubhouse with first-class hospitality and a variety of social events

We hope you find our web site helpful.

The course was originally Lord Egerton of Tatton’s own personal course, tucked away in the far corner of the Tatton Estate.

Lord Egerton invited guests and selected gentlemen of Knutsford to play with him on the original course on a Wednesday or Saturday, but in 1891 he agreed to open up the course to Knutsford gentlemen and women.   Mr Charles Ashworth called a meeting of 13 gentlemen in the George Hotel, now the Brasserie Blanc Restaurant, on 5th August, 1891, and The Knutsford Golf Club was formed.

The annual fee was set at one guinea and by the end of 1891 there were 75 men and women members.  The club continued to grow but in 1909 their President Lord Egerton died, and the Convalescent Home for poor sick women set up by Lady Mary near the Knutsford end of the Estate was closed.   It was suggested that the building be converted into a clubhouse for the golf members and when The Knutsford Golf Club joined with Cranford Billiards and Social Club in 1911 they moved into the new premises.

In 1958 the then Lord Egerton, a non-golfer, died – the last lord of the family – and he left the Tatton mansion and park to the National Trust.   The golf course and clubhouse became available and, with the help of interest-free loans from members, £7,500 was raised to purchase the property.   Since then members have run the club by an elected council.

At Knutsford, we provide a friendly, relaxed and inclusive golfing and social environment.
