Welcome to the newest jewel in the #GBT2024 Tour – Wilpshire Golf Club.
A timeless testament to golfing heritage nestled in the heart of East Lancashire. Established on 20th June 1890, Wilpshire proudly holds the title of the oldest Golf Club in the region. While details of the original course remain shrouded in time, the expansion to 18 holes in 1909 marked a pivotal moment in our rich history.
The current 18 holes, a captivating fusion of tradition and evolution, trace their roots back to 1919 when the club enlisted the expertise of the esteemed golf course architect, Mr. H.S Colt of Leeds. Fast forward to 1924, and the legendary James Braid left his indelible mark on Wilpshire. He advised on improvements that included new greens and re-routing certain holes. Since then, the course has witnessed various changes and additions, yet it retains the essence of its 1925 debut, capturing the spirit of a bygone era.
Wilpshire Golf Course is a captivating blend of parkland and classic moorland terrain, where the resilient moorland grasses intertwine with the natural allure of heather. It also offers golfers unparalleled views of the picturesque Ribble Valley.
