Grab a bay at the driving range. Each one has a comfy sofa you can relax on while you watch friends play or enjoy food and drinks.

UrbanGolf in Soho
Two minutes from the bustle of Piccadilly Circus, Soho Golf & Country Club is for those that like their golf with a modern twist. This place has virtual simulators in a cozy bar-like setting, so it won’t matter what the weather is doing outside! Enjoy 6,500 square feet of Chesterfield-sofa laden lounge areas, six AboutGolf simulators and a manicured putting green. Soho has fantastic nightlife, too, so you’re in the perfect place to enjoy London’s hospitality.
Leafy North London is where you’ll find more traditional golf clubs in luxurious settings.
Stanmore Golf Club
Designed by the architect behind Augusta National and Royal Melbourne, Dr. Alistair Mackenzie, this club has an inventive course suitable for all abilities. Tree-lined fairways and views of Middlesex countryside make this a picturesque place to relax and take your time playing the 18-hole, 6,025-yard course. You don’t have to be a member to enjoy the club’s Gordon Restaurant or bar, serving a la carte dining or a pint of a specially brewed local ale you can’t get anywhere else. Your nearest tube station is Canons Park on the Jubilee Line, which can whisk you into central London in no time.
Finchley Golf Club
This impressive golf club and course sits within beautifully-maintained parkland where you’re likely to spot deer, foxes, and squirrels as you play through the 18 holes. This course is known for a healthy mix of social and competitive golf, with pristine, fast greens. Woodland surrounds the clubhouse, which was built over 100 years ago as a substantial mansion house and retains many of its original Victorian features. Within its two wings are two restaurants, with views of the 18th green from The Dining Room and bespoke dishes served daily in the Blue Room. Hop on the tube at Finchley Central for access to the Northern Line to explore the rest of London.
South London has a unique charm, home to cultural Brixton, iconic Wimbledon, and eclectic Clapham. There’s plenty to see and do.
And Happy New Year to all of our followers. Have a great 2020 and we look forward to giving you a warm welcome at the club sometime this year. pic.twitter.com/5VON9TzI1T— London Scottish Golf Club (@londscotgc) January 1, 2020
London Scottish Club
Putney Bridge Tube station is your stop for this historic course based on Wimbledon common. The London Scottish Club has been around since the 1850s, and still upholds some quirky rules, including that all golfers wear a red-collared polo shirt (don’t worry, they provide one for you). The 19th-century wood-paneled clubhouse is sumptuously decorated for having a drink after a strenuous game out on the course. Set in parkland, it isn’t an easy one, but an enjoyable challenge for golfers of any ability. A genuine delight to drink in.
London’s expansive reaches mean you can experience excellent golfing without having to venture on a single tube line. The M25 allows for easy access to a whole host of exciting English towns and cities, as well as the stunning London Golf Club.
London Golf Club: Two Tournament Golf Courses
If you are traveling from the city, at London Victoria station there are services to Longfield, Borough Green, or Swanley which are all under seven miles' drive to the club. Once you've arrived, you can try your hand at one of two courses: The Heritage and The International. The first features dramatic views and has previously hosted the European Open, making it an exciting chance to stretch your skill set. The International features undulating fairways and tee shots over water, making for riskier shots and stunning scenery to take in while you play. The clubhouse is warm and inviting, a place where you can kick back and enjoy a drink with friends and fellow golf enthusiasts.
