The Message from the Club captain


A message from the 2016 Captain, Matt Smith

Welcome to Wanstead Golf Club. I am honoured to be the 2016 Captain of this wonderful golf club. I will endeavour to make the coming year an excellent experience for the members, their families and all guests to the Club. A regular series of social functions have been planned which I hope will be enjoyable for everyone.

I am sure the club will continue to be a progressive club that is welcoming to all its members and visitors, regardless of their level of expertise and experience.

Have a great year!

The 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.
