I think I have solved the problem of this very fine button. Firstly the crossed clubs represent 'Golf', secondly the early Hall mark is a big help. The only club that fitted these initials was a 10 hole course adjoining the railway station at Beighton, some 6 miles south east by east from Sheffield. It was in Derbyshire and was called the North East Derbyshire Golf Club. I have noted it from the 1909 'Golfing Annual', but a foundation date was not given. I don't think it survived the First Great War (1914-1918).

Although we can not be 100% sure that the button above is from the North East Derbyshire Golf Club, I will keep it here and hope for additional information about the club.
