In October 2018 Chestfield took over the running of the catering, bringing it in house has allowed us to offer a far better service with longer opening hours. The Catering is being led by Clubhouse Manager Jo de Wit, Jo has been managaing our bar for the last four years taking it from strength to strength so she was the natural choice to merge the two departments together. Joining us on this venture are chefs Steve and Pat bringing a wealth of experience to the team.
The distinction of possessing the oldest building used as a clubhouse in the world has been claimed for more than one golf club, but it is difficult to imagine that any can seriously challenge Chestfield whose home at Chestfield Manor is mentioned in Domesday and it is recorded that the Manor was once a gift from William the Conquerer to his half brother Bishop Odo.
The present clubhouse building is of 15th century construction which has been lovingly restored and furnished to provide a uniquely beautiful lounge with comfortable chairs and a first floor restaurant that is available for visiting players and friends, serving excellent cuisine. Be careful when returning to the top of the stairs in the restaurant – it is uphill! When the reconstruction and refurbishment of the clubhouse was complete in November 1984 the members had the pleasure of the company of Peter Alliss to perform the opening ceremony.
