Situated in Curzon Park, Chester Golf Club was founded on 24 May 1901. Formerly known as "Brueres Halgh" during the early Middle Ages, the land was used for agricultural purposes for many years. During the English Civil War a Parliamentary gun emplacement besieging Chester was used to bombard the northern defences of the city from a location close to where the maintenance sheds now stand.

Set on two levels, the 18 hole meadowland course is contained within a loop of the River Dee. There are attractive views of the Welsh hills to the west, and of the Roodee and the ancient city of Chester across the river to the east.
