South Hertfordshire Golf Club. This is said to have been founded because those in Muswell Hill and Hampstead clubs could not play on Sundays. In 1899 the Committee and members of Muswell Hill Golf Club where the grounds belonged to the church, faced the prospect of being expelled from their grounds and clubhouse. It was decided to find a new ground. It was agreed to buy this piece which was then just within Hertfordshire. However Muswell Hill Golf Club was not expelled and remains today. The new course and clubhouse opened in 1900/1901.
