Porters Park is a classic parkland course that is not only picturesque, inspiring and challenging; it is also normally playable throughout the year. With its base of loam clay, sand and gravel, the course has a natural and remarkable ability to recover quickly from even the heaviest rain. As a result, it drains so well that we don’t have temporary greens or tees and our course rarely closes. We are quite often open even when every other local course is closed. In its early days, the design of the course was influenced by a number of architects including John Henry 'JH' Taylor, one of the pioneers of the modern game. Between 1946 and 1969, several improvements were made to the course under the supervision of Charles Kenneth Cotton. In 1945, he was the club's secretary but he went on to become one of the UK's most distinguished post-war golf architects. Over the past 10 years or so, the club has invested heavily in course improvements and course management machinery, to meet the needs of today's players and the latest golf technology. This work has included installing a new irrigation system, re-designed and re-laid greens and tees, lengthening the course with “Blue” tees, on course shelters, planting of new trees and significant on-going course upkeep.
