Golf has been played on the present site since 1893 when Timperley Golf Club was founded.
In 1934 the owner died and the members were unable to buy the course for their own use, being outbid by Altrincham Urban Council. The course then became municipal, and the members of Timperley Golf Club decided to find a new home, moved to Baguley and built a new course. After a short stay at Baguley the club moved again and founded Mere Golf Club.
Altrincham Council continued to run the Old Hall as a clubhouse until 1955, when it was sold to Chester’s Brewery and became the Old Hall Hotel. In May 2003 The Old Hall was bought by Hydes Brewery and has been converted into a Heritage Inn. Meals will be available in The Old Hall for visiting golf societies.
The course has remained in its original layout with only minor alterations. During World War 2 the club continued to operate, but lost the second and third holes for the production of potatoes.
The present club was founded in 1935, and although the course is municipal, the club is private. While the Old Hall is still operating on site, the club now has a private club room and bar, which has recently been renovated.
