Didsbury Golf Club was founded as a nine-hole course on land near the local railway station in 1891. The front room of the stationmaster's house became its first clubhouse until 1901 when it moved to its present 18 hole site alongside the River Mersey.
Over the years the course has changed significantly. In 1921, the world renowned golf architect C.A. Mackenzie, famous for his terraced greens, was employed to redesign several holes. In 1973 the whole course was redesigned after the Manchester ring road, the M60 bisected the land.
Former Ryder Cup golfers, Peter Allis, now the voice of golf on television, and his partner Dave Thomas were the architects who produced the new course, which, with a few modifications, is that played today.
The River Mersey borders the course on three sides and has played a major part in the club's history, once or twice having threatened the club's existence with broken banks flooding the course and clubhouse in places up to seven feet deep.
Major bank strengthening work by the River Board has certainly improved the flooding problems but we still suffer to a lesser extent, like all our younger neighbouring golf clubs sited downstream on each side of the river.
