STOCKPORT CLUB SET TO MARK 125 YEARS

Mellor Golf Club was founded in 1894 on land owned by famous industrialist Samuel Oldknow, which became part of the Arkwright estate.

MELLOR AND TOWNSCLIFFE GOLF CLUB is aiming to celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2019 in style. Mellor Golf Club was founded in 1894 on land owned by famous industrialist Samuel Oldknow, which became part of the Arkwright estate. Townscliffe Golf Club, on land adjacent to Mellor church, was founded in 1908 and dissolved in 1920. Many members joined Mellor Golf Club to form Mellor and Townscliffe Golf Club and the course was extended to 18 holes in 1925.

This year the club will host several special events including a corporate competition, the Manchester Business Cup on June 26. Members and visitors will be testing their skills in endeavouring to tame ‘The Mellor’ hole – a par 6 over 700 yards – in various competitions. The club has also frozen its annual £850 membership for the next four years.
