Built in 1891 for a cost of £1,574, the original clubhouse was unkindly described as a ‘box-framed’ salon with its Elizabethan design and half-timbered main gable. The designer, Hall Blyth, a Past Captain of the Club, was an engineer but not an architect and which may explain the unique approach to the design.
Modified by subsequent extensions, the clubhouse now sits beautifully among the landscape, just behind the 18th green, as one of the truly iconic images in world championship golf. As you would expect, the clubhouse is delightfully traditional. The main rooms look out onto the course and are rich in history and an unrivalled memorabilia collection.
