The Blenheim Golf Club was established in 1933 when two good friends, Selwyn Vercoe and Edgar Clarkson, at a fireside chat, decided one evening a golf course on the Council land, which at the time was valued as grazing land for sheep, would be a good idea.  They put to the Council that William Pollard had given the land to the people of Blenheim (not to sheep) for recreation and enjoyment and so it progressed from there to the present day.  The area still has trees established at that time and with the changing seasons there is always a different vista of the course, which is bounded and crossed by creeks and as the years go by and the trees spread, it is becoming a challenge for all handicap groups.
