Hessle Tennis & Golf Club, as the club was originally called, started out with a 6-hole course at Hesslewood in 1898. Twenty-four years later, a move was made to property attached to Hesslewood Hall, where a 9-hole course was brought into play.

A further nine holes were added in 1935 and these were located on the north side of the Hull-Ferriby Road. The 18-hole layout was rated as a par 67, with seven par threes and only one par five on the scorecard.

In the late 1960s, it became apparent that the course would get caught up in road development associated with the new Humber Bridge so a decision was taken to relocate five miles north to a 120-acre farmland site at Raywell.

Alliss, Thomas and Partners were chosen for the design and construction work began in December 1972, with the new layout officially opened by the EGU President George Walker on 19th October 1975.

In the mid-1990s, it was decided to convert the greens to USGA-specification putting surfaces and this project was widened in scope to include the redesign of both the green surrounds and greenside bunkers.
