Old vs New?

We are delighted to let you know that we have submitted a planning application to reinstate the main front entrance of the building as per the original Architects intention when first built in 1897!

Originally there was a Veranda opening out from the main hall with views over the common. Somewhere over the years, this Veranda was enclosed as internal space and windows put in its place, and a large hedge grown, thus enclosing the Main Clubhouse.

Our intention is to reinstate the doors leading out onto Veranda, and reduce the density of the hedge to better open up and connect the building to Wimbledon Common once again.

The following images show the original Architects Sketch, the existing facade, and a rough CGI of the proposed facade. We will keep you posted on the proposed works over the coming months!

Winter Open | 2018

Our popular London Scottish Winter Open will be held on Wednesday 20 February 2019. We're expecting lots of entries from other clubs and would also like to see good representation from our own members.

Cost of entry is £20 for members and £29 for guests, and the event is open to anyone with a bona fide handicap. Entry includes bacon roll and coffee on arrival, plus a buffet lunch.

There are handsome trophies for the best scratch and handicap medal scores.

The 2018 scratch competition was won by Joe Smith of Wyke Green GC in Middlesex, with a two over  par round of 70.  The handicap trophy in 2018 was won by Andrew Dalton from London Scottish GC, with a net 65.

To book your place, please speak to Steve at the club, call him on 020 8789 1207, or contact us via our website 

If you’d also like to enter friends from other clubs, then you are more than welcome to do so.

Ladies Section

Those of you who have visited the club recently will have spotted the work that is being done to convert what was Steve's office into a new ladies changing room, with the works being close to completion.

The ladies opened their own nine-hole course on land adjacent to the main links in 1891, and had their own clubhouse at the Thatched Cottage on the common. Among the members was Isette Pearson, who lived in Putney and was a prime mover behind the formation of the Ladies Golf Union in 1893.

If you know of anyone who might be keen to join our ladies section you can speak to Steve Barr, Tommy Tighe or Tim Hanson (or email here).

Many thanks to Tommy Tighe and Primebuild for organising the building work, and to Mark Taylor, Stewart Lundy and Les Hodges for their valuable help.
