Haywards Heath Golf Club

in November 2021 we were approached by Gareth Cooper of Elemental Design & Branding Ltd to see if would be able to work with him and the golf club on producing an exclusive Centenary book showcasing 100 years of Haywards Heath Golf Club.

In the years immediately following the First World War, Haywards Heath was little more than a sleepy market town with a population of 5,090. The good rail link to London, however, was starting to attract an influx of new residents City workers who wanted the benefits of living in the countryside.

Haywards Heath Golf Club was born when Finch bought Round Wood, some surrounding grazing land and two 18th century barns, which rejoiced in the name of Fatting Hovel. The barns became the Clubhouse and a nine-hole course was laid out with the help of Major I.G.H. Stenborough, a keen amateur golfer.

The Club was officially opened on Saturday, 27th May 1922. The annual membership subscription was six guineas (£6.30).

Our print expertise paired with Gareth's design knowledge and the wonderfully talented golf photographer Kevin Murray, set to work on producing this wonderful book 'The Club'.

After many discussions with the committee members at the golf club, we were able to provide the team involved with material samples and a number of finishing options to really help the book stand out within their desired budget.

After 8 months of photography, research and designing / art-working, the book ended up being 200 pages, printed on FSC® 170gsm Silk to highlight the imagery throughout the book which was paired with a Paris blue Wibalin case, beautifully finished with gold foiling to front and spine. The dust jack was also finished with matt lamination and spot UV highlights.
