It is hoped that the following information will be of interest to all who enjoy the history and tradition of golf.
The Early Years
In the early 1890s golfers in the Rye and Hastings area discussed the possible creation of a golf course at Camber. A meeting held at the George Hotel in Rye on 28th November 1893 decided that 'a Golf Club should be formed; links to be situated over the Camber sandhills'.
Between the Wars
In January 1920 the Oxford and Cambride Golfing Society played the first President's Putter which became the biggest event in the Rye calendar. Well known names such as Darwin, Montmorency, Holderness, Tolley, Wethered, Crawley, Micklem amongst others.
The Second World War affected the Club far more than WW1. Anti-invasion measures saw major defences built on the first nine; the Old Billy was requisitioned; eight holes of the back nine remained in limited play but, in 1944, a flying bomb badly damaged the clubhouse.
