The brief history of the club

Formerly the stables of the great Wanstead House which was built in 1720, the palace that was the seat of Earl Tylney of Castlemaine.  Such was its renown that in1764 King George 111 and Queen Charlotte escorted by Light Horse outriders were guests of John, 2nd Earl of Tylney. The beautiful house met its demise in 1825 and the landscaped gardens play host to the golfers with the first hole incorporating the wine cellars of the old house. The land is now the home of not just the golfers of Wanstead, but the bowlers, tennis players and cricketers too.

A message from the 2014 Captain, Tony Mansfield

A very warm welcome to all our members and visitors to what promises to be another fantastic year at this great old club. I’m very proud to be the 2014 Captain and to continuing the standard of friendliness that has been the trademark of Wanstead G.C. for so many years. There’s a full programme of golf and social functions planned, and some new events that I know will get all your support. My thanks go to all those who have made this journey possible for me and look forward to serving the club and the members to the best of my ability during my year.
