Golf Course Says
Royal Wimbledon Golf Club has attracted rave reviews. ‘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 and omnibuses, and other symptoms of a busy suburb disappear as if by magic and a prospect of glorious solitary woods stretches away into the distance in every direction’.
Much has changed in Wimbledon since then but today’s Members and Visitors would almost certainly concur. The original course, however, wasn’t perfect and a radical redesign from the celebrated Harry S Colt (who happened to be a Member) in 1924. Measuring 6,348 yards for the men and 5,627 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. Each hole at Royal Wimbledon has an individual character presenting a comprehensive challenge to golfers of all standards.
