Club History

The Barrfield Club is over 120 years old. 

The Club was inaugurated by a group of residents of the area, all reputed to be millionaires, under the leadership of Sir Richard Mottram who was a former Mayor of Salford.

The founding members included Richard Duxbury, Richard Hudson, Arthur Howarth, Richard Parkinson, Joseph Grant, William Winterbottom and Arthur H.

It was officially opened by Lady Mottram, wife of Sir Richard, on the 7th August 1897.

The green at the Barrfield was at that time (and some may say still is) regarded as one of the most difficult in the area, having a crown of 18 inches and covering an area of 2,500 square yards.
