Royal Jersey Golf Club

TPL have been appointed to carry out an audit of the playing strategy of the golf course and to make proposals for the enhancement thereof.

Also known as The Grouville Links, the course occupies Grouville Common on the East coast of the island of Jersey, and comprises approximately of 70 acres of rolling, sandy heath land and is bordered by the magnificent coastline which was so admired by Queen Victoria that she commanded it to be named the Royal Bay of Grouville. In the 18th Century the common was popular for duelling and during 60 years of the 19th Century the annual horse races were held there.

History in Brief

A group of enthusiasts in Jersey, led by FW Brewster and encouraged by many officers of the Militia, mapped out an 18-hole course which, in 1878, was opened as The Jersey Golf Club. A year later the Lieutenant Governor received the Queens warrant to add "Royal" to the Club's title.

The course virtually remained unchanged until WWII when the Germans occupied the Island and the Links were transformed into a minefield, which included many anti-tank traps, but the scars have healed; one bonus was that they caused to be built the concrete sea wall that stretches from Fort Henry along to Fort William bordering the first four holes.
