London Scottish Golf Course is a prestigious course set in the heart of Wimbledon, London. The course originally consisted of 7 holes until it was extended in 1871 to one of the first ever 18-hole links course. Being one of the first to have been made the character surrounding the course is there for all to see. The course itself is not particularly long but very tricky for the most part. Unlike a lot of courses only two of the fairways are alongside each other, the other 16 are intertwined around the small amount of area they have and lined by trees to make the fairways even tighter. The hardest hole on the course statistically is the par 4 13th, measuring 438 yards. Named the ‘Hope Grant’ after Lieutenant General Sir James Hope Grant. Sir James was dedicated the hole as one of the founding members who donated one of the first ever medals for the club championships. The 13th Hole requires a very strategic play, it needs two straight shots to find the short grass and anything on the green can roll back off because of the sloping landing area. The course is a fantastic test of golf and if links is your preferred style of play this is the course for you.
