Abstract: The aim of this article is to pull women in from the periphery and show that they had a significant role in the organisation, promotion and development of golf. It will also look at two other groups of women at the golf club, those of a lower social class to the members who found employment as cooks, cleaners and even caddies, and those who exhibited hostility to the clubs as part of militant suffragette activity. The paper will provide evidence on gender power relationships between male and female golfers, employers and employees, and suffragettes and the political establishment.
