Every year members of Royal Wimbledon Golf Club nominate a local charity to use their course and clubhouse for a fund-raising event, and are delighted to welcome Paul’s Cancer Support Centre in 2019.
Royal Wimbledon 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 in 1910 “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, and arguably the greatest golf architect of all time, 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.
Golf Monthly recently wrote: “In a county [Surrey] packed with premier league golf, Royal Wimbledon is an excellent club with a seriously good course.”
The members of Royal Wimbledon Golf Club look forward to welcoming Paul’s and all its supporters on 30 May 2019.
