Potters Bar Golf Club has ceased trading after nearly 100 years of operating in the town.

The Golf Club, which has been open since 1923, ceased trading on Tuesday, November 20.

In its 95 years of operation, the Golf Club was the home club of professional golfer Tony Jacklin, as well as golfers Alex Hay and Bill Shankland.

Club member Mark Ward said: “I started my golfing career there 12 years ago as an artisan member. It would be nice if it could be kept as a golf course as it had massive potential if under the right management.”

Stuart McCabe-Bell, from Potters Bar, said: “Coming into Potters Bar by train from the north its always a lovely sight of Potters Bar rising up above the course. Sadly I expect it to be gone forever as prime development land.”

Marion Deverill said: “My husband and sons have caddied there. We had many walks over that course - it will be a shame.”
