History

The Cambridge University Golf Club has a rich and storied history since its inception in Michaelmas term 1869. The club is indebted to Mike Morrison who has spent countless hours bringing this history to light, and this section of the website briefly outlines some of Mike’s key findings. For those who want to read more about the remarkable early history of the club, Mike has published an excellent book: The Worst Golf Course ever: Coldham Common. Purchases can be made directly from Mike. Any profits from sales will go towards the CUGC.
