Royal Wimbledon Golf Club is the third oldest golf Club in England dating back to 1865 and is a hidden gem only five miles from Charing Cross. It has a rich history embracing both the evolution of the Club and the game of golf. “A wonderful place is this new Wimbledon course” wrote Bernard Darwin “for as soon as we are on it all signs of men, houses, omnibuses and other symptoms of a busy suburb disappear as if by magic.” Harry Colt, a member of the Club, redesigned the course in 1924. It continues to evolve to keep pace with the game and today provides a tough test over tight fairways with gorse and heather thrown in for good measure.

Measuring 6,366 yards for the men and 5,581 for the ladies, with Standard Scratches of 71 and 73 respectively, the course has undergone a continuous programme of improvement in recent years designed to enhance the visual aspects, protect against players’ improved equipment and fitness and provide appropriate practice and teaching facilities.

One of the best London courses and hard to believe you are less than 10 miles from the hustle and bustle of the busy City. A private members club so not easy to get on but worth seeking out a member for a game.
