The Richmond Golf Club

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

The Richmond Golf Club is home to a well-rated course, originally designed by Tom Dunn and recently given a substantial make-over by the London-based Australian designer Tim Lobb. Sitting on the western edge of Richmond Park (the largest of London's eight Royal Parks), this golf course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy.

Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted and pleasantly testing design. With its very impressive Grade 1 listed, early-Georgian clubhouse, Richmond GC is certainly one to include on your play list if you are in the area.

Did you know?

Richmond's clubhouse is no ordinary building. Sudbrook House was built around 1725 by renowned architect, James Gibbs, for John Campbell, 2nd Duke of Argyll. It is Grade 1 listed and widely regarded as one of the finest examples of 18th century English Palladian architecture. When Sudbrook House was first leased by Richmond GC in the late 1890s, it became one of the grandest clubhouses in all of golf, and remains so to this day.
