What the club says: The course on the Common, which we share with London Scottish Golf Club, is the second oldest continuing golf course in England and Wales. It was first played on in 1865. It is pre-dated only by Westward Ho in Devon which is about one year older. So it is not surprising the greens are so good - they have had plenty of time to mature.

Poor fairways

Greens and tees were in good condition, but fairways were in very poor condition which punished most shots and felt like playing from the rough or bunkers everytime. Course very poorly marked and if it wasn't for members on the course we would have teed off from the wrong tee many a time, including the first. Felt like a glorified pitch and putt and would rather pay the extra £10 to play at nearby courses.

Friendly and Welcoming Club

Value for money with a friendly welcome. Would caution that patience is required as course is shared with another club an open to walkers on Wimbledon Common.

Cracker

Courses winds through the trees. Tough par 3s; you have to be accurate and they are long. Two are encroached by trees and the 1st has road on the left. Humps and bumps make things interesting, greens are very good and undulating.

Greens and tees in great condition

A pleasure to play on a Monday afternoon with the Merton resident discount. Tight and challenging course despite having no bunkers. Quite a few dog walkers about sharing the Common with golfers, needed to whistle or shout a few times before playing shots.

Excellent Test

What a great test of golf! The course itself requires you to be arrow straight, so do not be put off by the length, or lack of it. It's a cracking course, and the greens are the best I've played on, and that includes some of the more famous courses! Not quite sure what the group below found, perhaps they lost a few balls and were grumpy, but the members are extremely friendly and inviting, much more so than at any other golf course. Essentially, if you pay a green fee you are a member for the day, and you are treated as such too. There always seems to be a good mix of people in the bar when we visit, which is refreshing, it's not the stuffy 'stand to attention, the General is approaching' attitude you expect from golf clubs. The captain even came over to us and asked how we enjoyed the round and offered to buy us a round of drinks!

We understood you had to wear a red shirt to play on the course however our red collard shirts we deemed not acceptable by the members however the course representative had already told us ours were fine. We had to change them and pay £6 for rental tops, that were only slightly different shade of red then the ones we had originally. This didn't bother us too much until later during our round we noticed members were wearing every shade of red shirts imaginable, all the way to pink. Unfortunately the members were typically obnoxious and elitist.

The course itself was and over glorified pitch and putt. Dominated but dog walkers, greens were nice however.

A lovely course in very good condition. Mind the dogwalkers and members of the public as the holes are tight. Greens are in great condition.

This is a great little central London golf course. It is unique in that you can play via two different clubs starting at different ends of the course. The clubhouse facilities are better at the Wimbledon Common end rather than the London Scottish end but it is the course that really stands out. A short but very narrow track, it is heavily tree lined with excellent greens, even in December when we played. There are no bunkers and the common land means that you have to be very conscious of the dog walkers appearing from out of the trees. You must wear a pillar-box red top to play and you need to bring a very straight game off the tee. A mix of shortish par 4s and some brutally long par 3s, there is only one par 5. A fun but challenging course to play for ?15 to ?20 depending on the time of year.

Interesting old course, very challenging, some ridiculously long par 3s, but worth a play if you're in the area. Bit annoying waiting for dog walkers to get off the fairway from time to time, but not the club's fault.

I really like this course. I have played at Glendale courses and other London courses - this is my favourite. The dog walkers are annoying and seem to really make use of their right of way priority. However its worth being patient. I found this course to be a lot of fun. Fairways are nicely maintained and green are well designed and pure. gREAT VALUE FOR MONEY
