Accrington and District Golf club was formed in 1893, making it one of the oldest clubs in Lancashire.
The six founder members held a meeting in the courtroom and the first task was to find a suitable site for play. The original nine-hole golf course was situated overlooking the town on the top of the coppice, and built by Mr. James Birtwistle of Blackburn who had also constructed Wilpshire golf course. The club was not located there long and, in 1908, was forced to relocate to the present site. Initially, a nine-hole course, by 1928 an 18-hole golf course was formally opened.
This is a club full of history; among former members are a number of England international golfers, a Ladies Amateur Champion and the designer of the first metal wood. The club continues to look forward though and have continued to improve the course and its facilities.
