Two if not three small clubs had existed in the area from c1890, and were brought together in 1899 with play over part of the Porters Estate owned by a Mr Grace. The course was quickly altered and expanded and in 1904 the new owner of the estate asked that the Club’s name be changed to Porters Park Golf Club. The silver award button shown is by ‘JRG&S’ (Gaunts). Diameter is 22mm and hallmark is Birmingham 1925. The central motif is a large bramble pattern ball resting upon crossed clubs. The elaborate title scroll is fully explanatory: ‘Porters Park Golf Club Est 1899’
