The Richmond Golf Club is looking ahead to its 125th anniversary next year with a year-long celebration to mark the momentous milestone.
Located just nine miles from central London in the heart of Petersham and nestling next to Richmond Park, The Richmond Golf Club offers an outstanding golf experience. The Club provides members and visitors with one of London’s most challenging and beautiful parkland courses set in the grounds of Sudbrook Park, home to the Club for its extensive history.
A continual programme of renovation, upkeep and improvement sits at the heart of the club’s success today. In advance of its anniversary next year, there is much to celebrate in terms of the opportunities to prospective members.
The Richmond Golf Club offers both members and visitors an enticing blend of an award-winning golf course, in grounds that boast a rich and interesting history, a historic clubhouse and a very active and inclusive membership community.
Jeremy Williams, The Richmond Golf Club Captain, commented: “As we approach our 125th anniversary next year, it is timely to reflect on the fascinating history of the club and course. Originally laid out by prolific course architect Tom Dunn, back in 1891, the course has been continually enhanced and improved to provide a more demanding test for today’s golfers.
“We are a members club and always open to golfers who are looking for a new challenge. Everyone at The Richmond Golf Club is proud of the club’s history and excited to mark the milestone anniversary next year. We will be launching our programme of celebratory events later in the autumn, and look forward to welcoming guests and visitors during the year ahead”.
