Bawburgh Golf Club was established in 1979 by Alan Barnard as a 9 hole course, designed by himself and Bert Kelly (former professional golfer). The course was a par 33 and 2577 yards in length. In 1991, Alan and his wife, Kate, expanded Bawburgh Golf Club further, developing it into an 18 hole golf course, par 70. Shortly after, in 1994, we saw the addition of Glen Lodge Clubhouse. Over the years they both contributed to the growth of golf in Norfolk. During this time, Alan provided Norfolk with the Barnard Trophy, an annual competition for senior golfers. Alan and Kate still took an interest in Bawburgh Golf Club right up to their final years, visiting for lunch and helping out at the annual Barnard Charity Golf Day. Alan and Kate’s son, Robert Barnard, carries on their legacy as managing director and instructed the additions of the company's 9 hole course and driving range. Robert’s daughter, Krissy, is our business manager, and Jamie is our operations manager. They recently designed and constructed Glen Lodge's new wedding venue, which opened in April 2019. In memory of Alan and Kate who both sadly passed away in 2018, they named the Barnard Suite after them.
