Bury St Edmunds Golf Club has Walter Edward Guinness, the local Member of Parliament from 1907 to 1932, to thank for its existence. He purchased a suitable piece of land on the northwest edge of the town for £1,700 in 1922 and donated it for recreational use. It was just the catalyst needed by golfers to get the club under way.

Open champions Ted Ray and James Braid were invited to submit plans for the design of the new course and it was Jersey-born Ray who won that particular off-course duel, securing the £25 fee for setting out the 18-hole layout within the Sexton’s Hall estate. The new course was opened by Lady Evelyn Guinness in October 1924.

The construction of the A14 road in the late 1960s resulted in the club losing six holes to the new road so Frank Pennink was called in construct new holes and re-sequence some of the original ones – the old 1st is now the 6th, for example, and the old 6th became the 14th. A 9-hole short course was added in October 1991.
