  • It's also London Scottish Golf Club

    Great review; sums up the attractions of this old fashioned and fascinating course very well. This is proper golf. One thing to add, though: the course is shared by two clubs, and the oldest of them is not mentioned - London Scottish GC, founded 1865, whose beautiful wood-panelled Victorian clubhouse is tucked in by the windmill on the common. But you don't have to be Scottish to play there or join! The two clubs 350 members max each) share the course happily and operate it with a joint greens committee, so there is no extra congestion. Actually, the greens are among the best in Surrey.

    This almost intact 19th century course is a lesson in golf architecture and in the manner in which the game was once, and should still be, played.
    players who want showy water features and american style landscapes moulded by big budgets and earth-movers should stay away. They will not appreciate eighteen holes embedded in the mature park- and wood-land of the common, or the subtle challenges offered by this relatively short course.
    At first the layout looks innocuous -
    the course appears to be scatterd over the land rather than dominating it in the imperious modern manner - but then the Americans say that of St Andrews, don't they...?
    A skillfully used wedge will be at least as useful here as a titanium driver, and the Links-golf skills of craft, ingenuity and imagination will have their just reward.
    If you find it an unbearable distration to have horses in your eyeline, or to see dog-walkers traverse the fairway oblivious to the iron shot for which you are preparing, then, once again, stay away. If you have the humility to be pleased that golf is only one of the ways in which common land may be shared, you may find that in the end it enhances your day.
    If you can bring a red shirt, patience, imagination and a sense of history, Wimbledon Common will yield a surpisingly rich reward.
