In 1930 there was no golf course here! There was the local St Ives brick factory, this factory supplied St Ives and other towns around cambridgeshire with bricks, slabs, rooftiles and more! The factory closed not long after 1930 because it used up all the clay on the site. After demolition to the factory only one building survived and still stands to that day but it is very small. It is hidden and really hard to find so that means no vandals shall be visiting any time soon.
After the golf course being a waste land for a while it was finaly purchest by St Ives golf club in the 1990s! They built 3 buildings! The canteen, a house and the reception. The golf course was in buisness untill 2008 when it moved near Needingworth. Ever since the site closed it has been a prime location for vandals and dog walkers! In 2011 the reception building was burned by teen vandals and in October 2016 the canteen has been smashed up. The house that was on the site is still in use.
Enjoy the pics!
