Here is a general map of the area that I found as a link on Wikipedia.

Not what you're after I know, but may assist you at some point.

Early 1930s aerial photo showing the course of the South Beds golf club,can't make out the slope of the hills,the 600 yard range had targets near the foot of the hill.
