Located on the grounds of Wimbledon Common near the Windmill Museum, the London Scottish Golf Club was founded on 1865. Also, it is the longest continually played golf course in England.
Especially, the club is a private club open to everyone. So, the membership fee is £78 a month. Accessible via A3 and M25, the club also enjoys good parking facilities. The origins of the course date back to the early 1860’s a group of the London Scottish Rifle Volunteers, now London Scottish Regiment stationed at Wimbledon Common decided to lay out a 7 hole course in the Common. Subsequently, in 1871 the course was re-designed and extended to 18 holes. So, it was done by the club professional Tom Dunn, becoming the 4th golf course in the world and the first in England to accommodate 18 holes. Also the redesign came the same year that the Wimbledon and Putney Commons act took the land away from the ownership of Earl Spencer and into public hands.
The club enjoys some unusual bylaws, for example due to the Common being public land, all players of the London Scottish Golf Club must wear a Red Pillar Box upper garment when playing at the course, additionally, because the course is located in an area of Special Scientific Interest, is one of the few golf course with no sand bunkers.
Famous rivals Cambridge and Oxford universities held their first golf competition at the Royal Scottish in 1878 and continued to play the competition at the course until 1896 when it was decided to move the competition to Royal St Georges in Sandwich, Kent. In 1881 a dispute arose between the military and the civilian members of the club, resulting in the civilian members moving out, creating the Royal Wimbledon Golf Club on nearby grounds on the Common.
