The Club was founded in 1880 although the original  9 hole course was built by local landowner Philip de Crespigny around 1865 for the entertainment of his guests, partly in his large garden & partly on Brook Common in the New Forest. At this time there were no other golf courses in Hampshire & no record of whether or not he had permission to build his. The course was extended to 18 in the 1910s, prior to this Lyndhurst developed a 9 hole course also, the two Clubs combined for a period being known as The New Forest Golf Club, a unique feature of this Club was that the front & Back 9 holes were 5 miles apart !   SUPERB CARD                                                                             Ref.562
