About the 1904 Club

The aim of the club is to create a loose association of golf clubs that were founded in 1904, to share histories and experience and add depth to each clubs heritage. The club facilitates:

  • Opportunities for members of associated clubs to play new and interesting courses based on the 1904 common bond.
  • To add golfing links to 1904 member clubs who have developed in very different circumstances.
  • To help each other when and where possible.

There are currently 66 clubs identified that were founded in 1904.

  • 66 clubs in 12 countries, as far afield as New Zealand, USA, Canada, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Spain, Singapore and the UK.
  • All remain committed to the game and the benefits that it can bring members.
