The idea of forming a Dyrham Park Lodge came at an Installation Meeting of a member of Dyrham Park Golf and Country Club in 1978, when six of the guests, surprised to see each other there, who were members of the Club, decided to explore the possibility of forming a Lodge, which could meet at the Club and combine Freemasonry with Golf. After much hard work by the Sponsors, the Club Committee finally gave its consent, the Province approved the facilities and the Lodge was formed.

Dyrham Park Lodge took its name from the Club which is in Dyrham Park House and which was built in Elizabethan times and rebuilt after a fire in 1803.

The Crest on the Master’s Jewel is of the original entrance gateways which were installed in the late 17th century and which were used to welcome the entry of the Monarch into the City of London.

The motto is ‘Endeavour with Honour’ which is a logical combination of Freemasonry and Golf.

Before each meeting there is a members golf competition for Masters, Wardens and Founders trophies. There is also a competition for visitors.
