The Wimbledon Park Golf Club

1898 - 1998

Opened in 1898 and shaped like a giant horseshoe, the Golf Club land sweeps in a southerly direction down the east side of the lake, curves around the southern end and then traverses the west side of the lake. One couldn't think of a more lovely setting for such a club, which is particularly enhanced by the many great oaks which are dotted about the course. Many of these venerable trees were planted by Capability Brown and they still thrive. Walking the course presents you with the original views laid out in the 1760s. It is because the golf course and Capability Brown’s ideas for Wimbledon Park work so well together, that the WPHG supports the continued use of the land as a golf course.
The Club offers a full eighteen hole course, along with a practice putting green and a very handsome Clubhouse with bar and restaurant. To sit on the Clubhouse terrace with a cool drink and watch the sun set across the lake is a pleasure hard to beat anywhere in London.
One must note that the standard of play at WPGC is very high and at this time membership is full, but if you would like to "get on the waiting list", and schedule a try-out round with the Club Captain, then please contact the club:
