Enville Golf Club
The Enville Golf Club - Highgate Course is an amalgamation of these four endeavors:
- Alf Padgham designed the initial 9-hole course.
- Arthur Wrigglesworth brought the course to 14 holes.
- The last 4 holes were added by 1940 by Horace Lewis.
- In 1973, Frank Pennink introduced 9 holes.
- The final 9 were added in 1983, taking the total to 36.
With superb practice facilities, Enville Golf Club is a solid 36 hole venue that will only get better with the appointment of CDP.
Benefitting from local knowledge, given the choice between the Highgate and Lodge courses - play the Highgate.
