About the club

Great Yarmouth & Caister Golf Club "The Home of the Bogey" It seems to be a little known fact that the term "Bogey" started at Great Yarmouth. In 1890 a member of the Coventry Golf Club conceived the idea of playing golf under handicap against the "ground score" or "Par of the Course" as we now know it. Thus the new scoring system became known as the Bogey score! The Course is a fine example of traditional links golf, laid out on predominantly sandy ground over 100 years ago, and famous for the quality and stability of the greens. While modern irrigation is now used to ensure that the course is in optimal condition all year round, this does not detract from the links feel. The Great Yarmouth Golf Club was founded in 1882 by Dr Thomas Browne R.N. who on moving south to The Royal Naval Hospital in Yarmouth not only observed that the North Denes was a very suitable place for golf to be played but proceeded, by his own determined efforts, to bring his ideas to fruition. He wrote to various publications, both local and national, and called a meeting. Nobody turned up so Dr Browne declared himself Hon. Secretary, Treasurer, Committee and Captain. Having formed the Club he arranged matches with Royal Blackheath, Felixstowe and Cambridge University, obtained permission from the Mayor to play golf at the North Denes and in August 1882 a match was played between Dr Browne, Mr H Cummings and Mr F Burton Steward
