Whether the rhododendrons are in bloom along the sweeping driveway or the Virginia creeper is dressing the castellated Clubhouse in shades of crimson and red, a timeless experience awaits on arrival at Wentworth Club, where one can’t help but feel at home.
Set in a magnificent 700-hectare estate, just 60 minutes from South West London and 20 minutes from Heathrow, Wentworth Club offers a serene retreat from city living. In 1805, ‘Wentworths’ was a private residence for the extended family of the Duke of Wellington, but it was the visionary George Tarrant, who established the house and grounds as the home of Wentworth Club in 1920. Over 90 years later, the most prestigious professional golf tournament in Europe now resides here, the BMW PGA Championship, but Wentworth has also remained as an exclusive home to another family – the members.
Wentworth’s three world-class golf courses are steeped in history and promise the perfect balance of challenge, prestige and playability among natural beauty.
Wentworth’s tour de force, naturally, is its three world-class golf courses, each painstakingly maintained and benefiting from state-of-the-art innovation. These iconic courses are steeped in history and promise the perfect balance of challenge, prestige and playability among natural beauty and excellent company. Since the first shot was played at the inaugural Ryder Cup match in 1926, Wentworth’s three courses have each played host to some of the world’s most prestigious trophies. With that comes some of the greatest professionals of the modern golfing era winning on Wentworth’s hallowed courses including the great Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Rory McIlroy, and most recently Francesco Molinari.
Its famous Clubhouse takes inspiration from its 1920s origins, with cocktail bars, private dining rooms, lounges, terraces and a magnificently refurbished ballroom, offering a variety of spaces with a refined ambience, where its members can relax. Although steeped in history, Wentworth Club has always endeavoured to provide the most modern facilities. Thirteen clay and all-weather tennis courts, floodlit for year-round playing, ensure something for the non-golfer. A 25m indoor pool, the original 1920s outdoor pool, and an 8m pool for children offers something for every swimmer. A state of the art gym boasts the best in innovative equipment. Nature and wellbeing meet in the boutique Natura Bissé and Bamford Spa, with a menu of indulgent and relaxing treatments on offer.
If people come to Wentworth for the golf, they stay for the crowd. An exciting calendar of events brings together its community of members and their guests. A dedication to the social side at Wentworth means rarely a month passes without something in the club’s event calendar to celebrate with friends and family. Wentworth Debenture Members also enjoy complimentary membership to its ‘City Club’ at Ten Trinity Square. Here, a Château Latour discovery room, Michelin-starred dining, a cigar lounge and a Four Seasons pool and spa offer a welcome sanctuary in the heart of the City of London.
With world-class facilities, exceptional service and unmatched heritage, membership at Wentworth Club is something truly special.
