Some Historical notes – by R M Owen

The driving force was a Mr Guy Francis a partner in Parry Jones and Francis, Solicitors, Hall Square, Denbigh. Now known as Swayne Johnson & Wight. The first course was at Ystrad and was described as Cae Tros Ffordd (the field over the road) on the Ystrad fields between Ystrad Road and the Railway Bridge. A nine hole course was constructed and the club continued there until 1918 when the tenancy of the links was terminated and the club wound up.
