The History of Dunham Forest Golf & Country Club

Visiting Dunham Forest Golf & Country Club today, it is difficult to believe that as recently as 1960, this splendid course was little more than a collection of huts and a concrete parade ground.


The original 90 acres had been used by the US army and as an Italian prisoner of war camp. The land needed to be reclaimed. Leslie Glass (the first Club President) obtained an agreement from the land’s owner, Lord Stamford, to develop a Golf Course.

Initially, a nine-hole course was constructed, which was officially opened on 11th June 1961. New members will find it hard to imagine those early days when the President – Leslie Glass, Captain – Harry Doniger, and their enthusiastic Committee played the first rounds.

Alex Hay, the first Professional, well expressed the atmosphere of those days; “What I remember most was that every day was exciting. So much was being achieved, progress was being made, traditions were being set, and Membership was binding together. Still, most of all, there was a great sense of fun, and laughter was commonplace”.

Originally a derelict house called “Tirbracken” was purchased to refurbish it as a Clubhouse. However, the renovation costs were so high that it was decided to demolish the building. The present Clubhouse, designed by John Day, was built on the same site and was opened in September 1963.

In 1965 an extra six holes were constructed. Alex Hay left, and the Club Captain, Archie Preston, enticed Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas to Dunham as the Professional. Dave, who had come second in the Open Championship in 1958 & 1966, was made an honorary member. The course became 18 holes after Bernard Terry negotiated with Lord Stamford for extra land.
