HISTORY

The Golf Course at Embleton was laid down as a 9 hole course in 1900.   It became an 18 hole course with the assistance of James Braid in the 1920's.  The history of the Course can be seen at: http://www.dunstanburgh.com

The Men's Club was formed in 1947 and registered with the County and the EGU.  The first Committee consisted of Tom Foggett, who became the first Secretary and Treasurer, and his father with Norman Laidler and Tom Glendinning.  The first Captain was Dixon Donkin.

Initially, the Club met and had its lockers in an outhouse at Low Mill Farm, opposite the present Clubhouse.  The Clubhouse,  which was a First World War Nissen hut, was restricted to use by guests of the Sutherland family, owners of the Course  The members of the Club were only allowed to use the Clubhouse after 1952.
