Trial of Golf Play on Bank Holidays

The Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators have agreed to allow a trial of golf on Wimbledon Common on Bank Holidays during 2021.

The two golf clubs, which have had a presence on the Commons since before the Conservators came into existence, need to attract new members to ensure their long term viability, and Bank Holiday golf is a potential means of ensuring the future of these historic clubs.

The trial will start this coming Monday, 3rd May, and will continue on Monday 31st May and Monday 30th August.

Following the trial, the Conservators will carry out a consultation to gather the views of users of the Commons before taking a decision on whether Bank Holiday play will become a permanent fixture.

Please take care when walking on the Golf Course.
