The Message from the Club captain
A message from the 2018 Captain, Giles Brown
2018 is a significant year in the proud history of Wanstead Golf Club. Founded in 1893, this will be the 125th year as a members club and we will be celebrating this milestone throughout the year.
I, as Club Captain and my wife Carolyn as Lady Captain, look forward to giving a warm welcome to all guests and visitors to our friendly and hospitable club.
You can be assured of an enjoyable round of golf on our superbly maintained course with the opportunity to reflect on your game over a few drinks or a meal in the comfort of our clubhouse.
We are proud to be a Community Amateur Sports Club. Our facilities are open to social members, elite golfers and beginners, who are all welcome. The course is a challenging 18 holes, set in beautiful parkland, bordered by Wanstead Park and the lower reaches of Epping Forest, yet only a few miles from Docklands and the City of London.
Whether you visit to play a round of golf, experience the camaraderie in the club house or choose us to host your special occasion, we very much look forward to welcoming you to Wanstead Golf Club.
A brief history of the club
Formerly the stables of the great Wanstead House which was built in 1720, the palace that was the seat of Earl Tylney of Castlemaine. Such was its renown that in1764 King George 111 and Queen Charlotte escorted by Light Horse outriders were guests of John, 2nd Earl of Tylney. The beautiful house met its demise in 1825 and the landscaped gardens play host to the golfers with the first hole incorporating the wine cellars of the old house. The land is now the home of not just the golfers of Wanstead, but the bowlers, tennis players and cricketers too.
