A great boom in golf took place in England between 1890 and 1914, and 1893 saw the most clubs formed of any year in that 25-year period, when 80 Clubs came into existence.
Silkstone Golf Club has a long heritage and history, and we are proud to be part of the 1893 Club, which is an exclusive club made up of 40 golf clubs worldwide that were all founded in 1893.
Following an initiative led by the Captain’s committee of Wellingborough Golf Club in 2011, golf clubs formed in 1893 have been invited to join this exclusive club on the basis that they offer one courtesy round of golf per year to full members of all other 1893 clubs participating clubs.
The 1893 Club is mostly made up from 34 clubs situated in England and Scotland, but there are members as far afield as Ireland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man, Switzerland, South Africa and Australia.
