Charnwood Forest Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Leicestershire and in 2015 celebrated its 125th anniversary, part of which included a Royal Visit from HRH The Duke of York KG. Charnwood was originally part of the Beaumanor Estate situated in Old Woodhouse, near Loughborough, Leicestershire and began life as a “Grace and Favour” club, thanks to the generosity of the Estate owner, Mrs Perry Herrick. She gave her approval for the land around the Hangingstone Rocks to be used as a golf course and the first members, from 1890 onwards, were local gentry including eminent professional men and women. Upon the breakup of the Estate in 1946 by Colonel Ashton Curzon-Howe, the golf club bought its 77 acre course for £2,570.
