New Performance Centre & Golf Shop at Wimbledon Common Golf Club

Golf is an integral part of life on the Commons with two clubs playing on the one course - the London Scottish Golf Club and the Wimbledon Common Golf Club.  Golfers in their red jumpers - the wearing of which is a requirement enshrined in the Commons' Byelaws - are a familiar sight to many of our visitors.    

The Wimbledon Common Golf Club has recently launched a new indoor golf training facility at its club house on Camp Road.  All aspects of a golfer’s game can be filmed and analysed using the same equipment as the world’s leading Professionals. Run by the golf club’s teaching PGA Professional, Charlie Sandison-Woods, the centre is equipped with the latest technology to improve every aspect of a golfer’s game.

Charlie, an experienced coach who has worked with every standard of golfer from beginners to elite, professionals and county level players, commented: “We have equipment to help chipping, pitching, approach shots or off the tee and an individual lesson programme can be designed to maximise the potential of any golfer”.

A new Golf Shop and Office was launched this month to supply members and green fee players with a wide range of clothing and accessories.  General Manager, Emma Pope says “The club now has the latest IT equipment and a new member of staff, Golf Coordinator, Jack Ross.  ”We have a lot of ideas to encourage men and women of all ages to play golf: from our Academy programme, to the Thursday night “Swindle” competition, a Return to Golf package, and our loyalty card scheme.  And our Ladies section which only started in 2005 now represents a third of our membership!”
