The ninth has been lengthened by the construction of a narrow fairway alongside the main road whilst the twelfth was converted from a par three to a dog-leg par four. These modifications coupled with backward movement of tees have resulted in the course being lengthened from 5329 yards (circa 1925) to its present length of 6132 yards.

In addition to the construction of the course Sir George converted an old hostelry (parts of which date back to James the First) into a clubhouse for the use of members.

 

The old buildings were extended in 1913 by the addition of a new wing designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.

 

The course and clubhouse remained as a private company under the control of the Sitwell family until 1952, at which time the company was dissolved and administration of the clubhouse and course transferred to a private members club.

 

This situation remains today.

 

The 'Lutyens' Room' pictured below is the club's dining room

 

In 1912 Sir George Sitwell commissioned his friend Sir Edwin Lutyens to design an extension to the clubhouse. This fine crescent shaped facade faces away from the road so it is only seen by relatively few people, It contains a Dining Room in the Swiss style, seating for a hundred persons, a Locker Room and Drying Room. Ladies Room and Stewards quarters. Hence the dining room being known as the Lutyens' Room. Incidentally, Sir Edwin Lutyens also designed the Greywalls Hotel overlooking Muirfield Golf Course in Scotland.

The oldest part of the clubhouse seldom seen by the public and pictured below is an upstairs room where there are a couple of frescoes. It is believed that the painting date back to about the1620's. The picture on the right is thought to be St. George and the Dragon with the one on the left depicting the Ark Angel Gabriel. It is generally agreed that the room was used for secret prayer in the days of Oliver Cromwell.
