Did you know?

The clubhouse of Burhill Golf Club is a former Georgian mansion house, which is steeped in history and dates back to 1726. It was built as a private residence by Peter De La Porte, a wealthy London thread merchant. The Golf Club was established in 1907 by the Guinness family. During World War Two, the Burhill estate was requisitioned by the Ministry of Aircraft Production, and it was whilst working here that Barnes Wallis (of "Dambusters" fame) developed the famous "Bouncing Bomb."
