The club's origins can be dated back to Easter Monday of 1906, which formed the official opening of Cannington Park Golf Club, later to become Enmore Park Golf Club. The origins of the course were not in the village of Enmore but in the village of Cannington and consisted of a 9-hole course of par 38 and length of just over 2200 yards.
In 1932 at the annual general meeting, it was decided that lengthening of the course was needed, and as this was not possible at Cannington Park, a new location had to be found. The most suitable of these locations was Enmore Park, which is the current location of Enmore Park Golf Club. It is within the parklands once held by Enmore Castle. The new 9-hole course was officially opened at 3 o'clock on 24 September 1932.
The original plans for a transition to an 18-hole golf course were laid out before the Second World War. However, only 14 holes managed to be constructed before the start of the war, and during the early war years advancements to the course were suspended. Also during this period the golf club suffered financial difficulties and was forced to sell off some of the holes and returned to a nine-hole course.
It was not until 16 May 1992 that Enmore Park managed to obtain a capacity 18-hole golf course, which was officially opened on 10 June of the same year.
Enmore Park hosted the English Women's Amateur Stroke Play Championship in 2009.
