The Richmond Golf Club

TPL were appointed by The Richmond Golf Club to design and implement a renovation project.

The Richmond Golf Club, located within 10 miles from the centre of London, was founded in 1891 and originally laid out by Tom Dunn. One of the oldest hidden gems in the London area, the private member club has hosted matches that have included, amongst others, Willie Park, James Braid and more recently Tom Watson.

A beautiful Portland Stone Manor House, designed by James Gibbs, welcomes the Private Members and visitors alike. The course, now well into its centenary, has a variety of lovely golf holes, and could be described to have charm and quirk, but it is the peace and quiet of the course and the adjacent Richmond Park that is one of its best assets. The Club was a close witness of the Second World War, when in 1940 the Club had rules such as No. 7:

"A player whose stroke is affected by the simultaneous explosion of a bomb may play another ball from the same place. Penalty, one stroke."

Construction works were completed over two winters and the course fully open for play in April 2012.
