    Winter Hill has one claim shared by very few golf courses. It was founded and is still owned by one of the countrys largest retailers. Winter Hill was the dream of John Spedan Lewis, who is regarded as one of the best British businessmen of the 20th century, as well as being a keen golfer. After his father John opened his first flagship store in Londons Oxford Street, his eldest son joined the family business in 1904 at the age of 19. When he took control in 1928, forming the John Lewis Partnership in 1929, John Spedan extended his fathers work to distribute profits amongst the companys employees and by 1950 had completed transfer of control to the people who worked for him.

    In 1938 John Spedan bought just under 200 acres of agricultural land with the intention of establishing the course for the Partners. However, during the Second World War, instead of bunkers and fairways, Winter Hill was designated for the Dig For Victory campaign. After war ended the Government continued to take a dim view of land being used for non agricultural use so the building of a golf course was put on hold. John Spedan Lewis died in 1963 but eight years later the John Lewis Partnership decided to honour its founders intention by building the golf course he had dreamed of more than 30 years earlier.

    Former Walker Cup Captain Charles Lawry was commissioned to design the layout, assisted by renowned golf course architect Donald Steel. Although the land had superb views it was very open and extensive tree planting was required. Unfortunately 1976 was not a great year for planting foliage. The long, hot summer was one of the driest on record and over 1,500 saplings perished. Winter Hills first intake of members came to the rescue by providing replacements which helped give the course its definition.

    The first rounds of golf were played in May 1976 and, in October, Winter Hill was officially opened by Peter Lewis, then chairman of the John Lewis Partnership. The ceremony was followed by an exhibition match featuring Donald Steel

    as well as Bernard Hunt and Bernard Gallacher, both stars of the professional game who went on to become Ryder Cup Captain, and Michael Bonallack who is regarded as one of Britains greatest ever amateur golfers .

    Winter Hills first club captain was Alec Poundon and Lois Ashwanden was the first lady captain.
