History of County Cavan

Instituted 1894 affiliated 1899

In the January 1930 edition of the monthly magazine "Irish Golf" Lionel Hewson tells the story of the early days at Cavan Golf Club. "It was in the middle eighties of the last century that Mr. Thomas Lough, afterwards to be M. P. for West Islington, and Under Secretary for Education in the Campbell Bannerman ministry, laid out a nine-hole course at his Cavan residence, Killynebbar, ten minutes walk from the town. At first, it was used only by the Lough family and their political visitors from across the channel, as not for a year or two could any of the local residents be induced to interest themselves in the game. Eventually however, a sufficient number, probably not more than twenty, came together and formed the nucleus of a modest club".

The Golfing Annual 1895-96 tells us, it was founded in October 1894 and A. S. Lough was President in 1896, having 28 members. The course of nine-holes, varying in length from 122 to 226 yards, is situated at Killynebbar, about ten miles and a half from Cavan Station.

Play was restricted between the months of October and April. The club moved to its present location at Drumelis, and the present eighteen-hole course was opened in 1973.
