Hull Golf Club

Hull Golf Club was the first golf club in the Hull area. It was founded in 1904 by 9 local golfers of whom Haggitt Colbeck, a solicitor, was the guiding spirit - and first captain. The initial site was just off Anlaby Road, about 3 miles to the east of the present club, which later became the location for Boothferry Park, until recently the home of Hull City Football Club. During World War I (and World War II), golf continued to be played, but major competitions were suspended.

In 1921, for reasons that are unclear, the original club was 'wound up' and replaced by Hull Golf Club (1921) Limited, the present company. The clubhouse and course remained unchanged, but only for 3 years. In 1924, a road and house building programme by Hull City Corporation forced the club to move to its present site at Kirk Ella. The club bought part of the land needed from E.S. Wade. This included Kirk Ella Hall, which became the new clubhouse.
