PRESTATYN GOLF CLUB. The committee carrying out the arange- ments for the above met in the Council Chamber on Friday, when Mr T. Jones, J.P., presided. There were also present Messrs D. P. Morgan, H. R. Hughes, Frank Jewell, Jno. Hughes, T. Parry Williams, T. H. Jones, t J. Pritchard, Capt. Miller, J. W. Williams, I and the secretary (Mr J. Holland Roberts). E Through the instrumentality of the chairman Mr Foster had visited Prestatyn and viewed a site near Barkby Avenue, and reported in its ] favour. But later on Mr Foster was taken over another site between the gutter and the sea (this having been selected by Mr Collins, a professional golfer from Llandudno) and Mr Foster agreed that this was the better site. The idea of the Barkby Avenue site was therefore diopped. The Secretary had made inquiries regarding 1 the site between the gutter and the sea, and found that it comprised 65 acres of grazing land, which was at present rented from Lady McLaren by Mr Lloyd Ellis. It was ascertained that Lady McLaren was willing to let golfing rights to the committee for 15 years, so that the matter really resolved itself into a question of what terms could be made with Mr Lloyd Ellis for sub-letting. A sum would have to be paid Mr Lloyd Ellis as compensation, for he would be debarred from allowing any cattle to graze on the land. A figure was mentioned, and it waa decided to try and come to terms with Mr Lloyd Ellis, who had expressed his willingness to meet the committee. It was also decided to ask Lady McLaren on what terms the land could be had for a further term after the expiration of 15 years. The Secretary mentioned that Mr Collins strongly advised the laying out of a 9-hole course to commence with, as an 18-hole course would require two men to keep it in order. Only about half of the available land would be needed for a 9-hole course, and on behalf of Lady McLaren, Mr Linnell had offered to fence out this portion free of cost. As to the prospects of the club, the committee was convinced that the outlook was an excellent one, a considerable number of gentlemen having already signified their in- tention of giving the club their support.
