Exceeding expectations since 1905

Stockport Golf Club was founded in 1905. The present 18-hole course, primarily designed by Sandy Herd the 1902 Open Champion, lies in rural woodland close to the Derbyshire and Cheshire border. The course layout often attracts plaudits from both golf writers and the discerning visitor.

The course has attracted many famous golfers over the years, including Harry Vardon, James Braid and John Henry Taylor, who played an exhibition match with Sandy Herd when the present course was officially opened. Between them they had won the Open Championship 18 times. In 1929, the American Ryder Cup team, including global legends Gene Sarazen and Walter Hagan, played against a team of local amateurs in front of a crowd of six to seven thousand people.

In more recent years, the Club has played host to the Open Regional Qualifier and many major County Championships. It was during an Open Qualifier at the club in 2002 that Charl Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters Champion, shot a 64 to set a new course record. The Club also hosts the prestigious Stockport Salver, part of the Cheshire Cat which is a World Ranking event full details of which can be found in the visitors section of this site.
