Accrington & District Golf Club was founded over 125 years ago in 1893.
The six founder members held a meeting in the courtroom of Accrington Town Hall and their first task was to find a site suitable for play. The original 9-hole course was situated overlooking the town of Accrington on top of the Coppice, and built by Mr. James Birtwistle. The first round of golf played on the course was at the end of August 1893.
In 1908, following notice to quit the Coppice site, several sites were considered before the decision was taken to move to the present site. The links on the Coppice were finally closed on 22nd August 1908 and a new club was formed and a 9-hole course was constructed.
The more ambitious members of the club, however, did not consider this, satisfactory and an 18-hole course was decided upon. A re-arrangement of the old 9 holes took place accordingly and the 18-hole course was formally opened in 1928.
