The Club was formed in 1893 by seven gentlemen who invited others who might be interested to meet at 8pm on Friday November 3rd in the Welllingborough Drill Hall. Twenty-nine men were present and enthusiastic, so Old Tom Morris was engaged to lay out the first course on three fields belonging to Nest Farm (what is now the Finedon Road industrial estate).
The first clubhouse of any substance was a railway carriage. In 1923, a new nine hole course was constructed by Tom Williamson of Notts Golf Club, at the Bushfield, 'Waterworks' site (the present Gleneagles Drive area of Wellingborough).
The Club flourished there until 1975 when it moved to its present home at Harrowden Hall.
