OUR HISTORY

At Sunningdale, we have an 85 year tradition of great golf, which started with great golf course design. From the beginning in 1934, Stanley Thompson's original vision has guided us on a path of how to best utilize our historic property along the Medway Creek to offer a challenging and modern golfing experience.

We have a proud history of golf, a strong membership base, a deeply-held responsibility to environmental protection and a commitment to charitable giving within our local community.

Where it all began: Welcome to Sunningdale

In 1932, J. Gordon Thompson bought a 100-acre farm 3 miles north of the old London city limits.

One Sunday morning, the picture of a perfect par 3 flashed before his mind’s eye as he gazed across the bend in the Medway Creek to the natural shelf on the far side.  The spot from which the first thought was conceived is now the 5th tee of the Thompson Course and that vision has become a reality. It’s a perfect par 3.

The services of Stanley Thompson, internationally reputed course designer, were enlisted.  Sunningdale, a famous course near London, England, suggested the club’s name, and on July 14th, 1934, nine holes were open for play.
