Description

Isle of Wight Ladies Golf Club - Opened October 2nd 1893, as the committee would not ladies play on the Royal Isle of Wight GC! Ironically it was a better course and they would let gentlemen play if accompanied by a Lady Member! October to June, in July August September they were allowed to play unaccompanied, but on payment of a green fee of course! The course was ploughed up for training and/or agriculture in World War 1, and was not restored.
