History of Castlebar
Instituted 1910 affiliated 1912
Details of the origins of the club are given in the 75th anniversary brochure produced by Mr. John Egan, a member of the club for 55 years.
It reads "The initial meeting to form the club was held in November, 1910, in the Imperial Hotel, Castlebar. Chairman of the inaugural meeting was Rev. A. Lendrum and 32 other local gentlemen.
Lord Bingham was elected first President. The initial course was at Flannelly’s of Moreen until it moved to the present course at Rocklands, shortly afterwards.
Credit is given to members of the Connaught Rangers, who were stationed in the town at the time, for helping to start the club. There was a rifle-range on the course at the time, which was used by the local military personnel.
In 1958, extra land was purchased, known as Rockland House. In 1982, further land was acquired which allowed for an 18-hole course to be opened in 1984. It is clear there was an early interest in golf in Castlebar, as early as 1898, The Irish Times reported a match with a number of golfers from the town and members of Ballinrobe Golf Club.
