Set amidst the towering Victorian villas of one of Southport’s premier residential areas, Hesketh Park, is Hesketh Golf Club, the town's oldest golf club, founded in 1885. Standing alone on the crest of a tall sand-hill, the Clubhouse dominates both the golf course and the surrounding district. Built in 1902 it provides a fantastic setting for members and visitors alike, to enjoy excellent facilities before and after golf.
There are several lounges and and modern Dining Room. Two rooms of particular note are the Bentley Room and the Eileen Winders Lounge.
The Bentley Room exudes golfing history as it is the home for much of the memorabilia and trophies relating to Harry and Arnold Bentley, widely recognised as the most successful English amateur golfing brothers. Harry, the elder brother won the English, Italian, French (twice) and German (four times) Amateur Championships. He represented England on 58 occasions and also played in three Walker Cup teams, eventually becoming chairman of selectors in 1953. Arnold also won the English Amateur and played for England on several occasions. Arnold’s most notable achievement was to help Great Britain win the 1936 Baden Baden International Golf Tournament that was held in conjunction with the Berlin Olympics. The trophy, acquired by the Club in 2012, is now housed in the main lounge.
The Eileen Winders Lounge is named after the Club’s most prominent and successful Lady Member. Eileen won an unprecedented number of Club competitions, including the Scratch Prize 23 times, in the space of just 27 years. She was also one of the leading administrators in Ladies’ golf, chairing the English Ladies’ Golf Union and becoming President of the Lancashire Ladies’ County Golf Association. She was also Captain of the Liverpool Society of Lady Golf Captains, Northern Veterans, Lancashire Ladies - and Hesketh, in its centenary year. The lounge, previously known as the Ladies’ lounge, was named after Eileen shortly before she died in 2011.
