This land was originally Minchin's Farm but three enterprising Wycombe men, James Peace, his son-law, Arthur Clarke and their friend Thomas Thurlow,
decided to invest in the development of a golf course. Golf was becoming a popular pastime during this period.
The Club was later sold to its members after the First World War. You can read more about the Club in Margaret Anderton's book 'The First Hundred Years'.
