At the last meeting of the London County Council it was resolved to allow golf to be played over Tooting and Clapham Commons under certain regulations. These are of a very restrictive character. One is that after eight o'clock a.m. every player must engage a fore-caddie to display a red flag. No play is allowed after ten a.m. on any Saturday throughout the year, or on any other day during the months from March to October.
Play is permitted until noon daily (except Saturday) during the four remaining months. A new club to be called the "Streatham Golf Club" has just been formed to take advantage of the permission to play thus given by the County Council, and already the number of applications for admission is most encouraging. A feature of the club, which will distinguish it from other golfing clubs about London, is that it has been resolved to admit ladies to the membership."
