Course Open
Visitor Information

Justly proud of their course, Members often invite guests to share in their pleasure; there are also active reciprocal links with other Royal Clubs around the world. The unique atmosphere of Royal Wimbledon is maintained by not allowing the course to become over-crowded with the first tee open for play with only minimal reserved starting times.

A limited number of visitors may play on the course, subject to availability and prior application to the Secretary by letter or email, confirming that those wishing to play are members of a recognised golf club and hold current handicap certificates, 21 maximum for men, 36 for ladies.
