Founded in 1893, Kirby Muxloe Golf Club started out with a 9-hole course designed by Old Tom Morris and members are said to have competed for the first monthly medal in February 1894. It took another fifteen years for a clubhouse to be built then the course was extended to an 18-hole layout in 1926.

A number of holes were used for agricultural purposes during World War II but the course was brought back into full use in 1951. Three new holes were introduced by Simon Gidman to replace the old 1st, 7th and 9th in 1988 and he returned to the club in the new millennium to work on a number of the greens.

One of the most unusual holes to be found anywhere is the short par four 5th in the southwest corner of the property which is played through trees from a tee position almost 100 yards into an adjacent field on the perimeter of the course, accessed by a long grass strip that’s only 15 yards wide.

Other holes of note include the left doglegging short par four 8th, the tough par four 11th (rated stroke index 2 on the scorecard), and the par three finishing hole which is played over water to a heavily sand-protected home green, with a railway line running along the left of the hole.
