West Hoyle Golf Club was founded in 1939 when representatives of two golf societies held a meeting at the home of one of their number. It is known that the larger of the two, The Grange Golf Society, was well established and held their annual 'Musical Evening and Prize Presentation' at the Dee Hotel. Mr R Craig was reported in the local press, as having travelled up from London for just one such occasion. (Mr Craig later became the first President of the newly formed West Hoyle Golf Club). Of the other society, nothing is known, save that it drew its numbers from Hoylake and beyond, whilst the Grange drew its membership mainly from West Kirby. What is known is that at that meeting the two societies agreed to amalgamate. The purpose of the amalgamation was, it is believed, the aspiration to become affiliated to the Cheshire Union of Golf Clubs. Such an affiliation would allow the new club to set handicaps, which would be universally accepted, (not the case with Society handicaps) and allow the dropping of 'Society' from their title and becoming a 'proper' Golf Club. It would seem that they were forward thinkers among our forebearers. The combined membership numbers ensured that their application to the Cheshire Union was approved. West Hoyle must be unique as a Club in becoming affiliated to the Cheshire Union in the year of its founding, whilst playing on a municipal Course.
