WLG WELCOMES NEW MEMBER ROEHAMPTON CLUB
Uniquely British private members’ sports club happy to join
Originally formed in 1902 as a polo club, Roehampton Club’s list of members and visitors reads like a Who’s Who of society – Winston Churchill, the Duke and Duchess of Kent, the Aga Khan – while, later, tennis legends Angela Mortimer, Christine Truman, Margaret Court and Evonne Goolagong, all won open hard-court titles at the venue. In addition to an immaculate 6,043-yard, par-71 parkland golf course – remodelled in 2010 by Ken Moodie and Ken Brown – members also benefit from 22 tennis courts, four international-standard croquet lawns, five heated squash courts, two swimming pools, and a state-of-the-art gym and fitness studio. And, following in tradition, the Club still has a thriving social scene.
Immediately after World of Leading Golf had spread the news of Roehampton joining the pan-European network of certified top-quality golf clubs, the press has picked up on it with great enthusiasm quoting Roehampton Club’s chief executive, Marc Newey: “The international approach pursued by the World of Leading Golf really is a convincing concept. While being proud of our full membership with a waiting list, we do appreciate how important it is to attract new international members who are moving to London – one of the most exciting world cities to live and play sport in.”
