Sutton Bridge Golf Club, established in 1914 is a fine nine hole parkland golf course located in and around an abandoned late nineteenth century dock basin adjacent to the River Nene in South Lincolnshire. The origins of the golf course are known in part to many people but there is almost something romantic in its history which marks it off as ‘unique’. Back in 1881, the Sutton Bridge Port completed the construction of the dock basin some ten acres in area. No one could have forseen the engineering disaster that quickly followed its opening. Three ships had sailed into the basin and fortunately all three managed to escape before the dock walls began to collapse and two large pumping engines sank into the running silt.
