The official opening of the club took place on 17th August 1909 by Lord Enfield. In 1929 the Barnet Urban District Council acquired the land from its previous owner and informed the club that, subject to the return of the area on Arkley Common, they would be prepared to extend the course to 46 acres and grant a 21 year lease to the club. J.H.Taylor, ex-Open Champion and Professional at Mid-Surrey Golf Club, and James Braid, Professional at Walton Heath Golf Club were asked to submit their proposals for a new course design to incorporate the larger area of land acquired. It was Braids design for 9 holes with 18 tees that was adopted. Little has changed with the layout - a few more trees and bunkers. In 2002 the Club purchased a 180 year lease from Barnet Council securing the Clubs future. Arkley remains a gem in Hertfordshire golf which is enjoyed by members and visitors alike.

Marble Arch was designed by John Nash in 1828. Built of white Carrara marble, the design was taken from the triumphal arch of Constantine in Rome. It was erected to form a grand gateway to Buckingham Palace. When Queen Victoria and Prince Albert decided to enlarge the palace in 1851, room was made for the extension by removing the vast arch, which then became an entrance to Hyde Park. The upper part of the arch has been used as a place for police surveillance. During a riot in 1855 the crowd were brought to order by a body of police, who emerged from the arch taking the demonstrators by surprise. The area in which Marble Arch now stands was known as Tyburn, the site of the three-legged gallows, a place of public execution, where crowds gathered to witness the gruesome sight.
