The Worcestershire Golf Club was formed in 1879 and for several decades played on Poolbrook Common using several different course routings. In the 1920s it was decided to move from the common. Wood Farm, located one mile south of Poolbrook Common, was purchased for the new course.
The Club invited leading golf course architects Harry Colt and Alister MacKenzie to submit designs for the new course. MacKenzie tendered the lower price and was awarded the work.
