Our Course Manager, David Langheim has been with the club since June 2008. As a golfer himself, he knows exactly what players are looking for in the course and its surfaces. As a teenager, David played off a 1 handicap, but now works the course more than he plays it. David completed his Master Greenkeeper qualification in 2012, making him one of only 71 people in the world to attain this status. This expert knowledge has allowed him to provide insight and expert knowledge, not just to Wimbledon Park Golf course but also as a Master Greenkeeper to represent the Club at international tournaments and major events, such as the Ryder Cup and The Open.
As the golf course is a designated conservation area, it is a challenging task to navigate the restrictions imposed, whilst still trying to keep the club as modern and up to date as possible. We work in line with the Woodland Management strategy, and on ecology projects with the Wildlife Trust in order to preserve the delicate ecosystem of the greater Wimbledon Park area. The continual hard work, pride and dedication from David and his team, help us to produce and maintain the first class standard of Wimbledon Park Golf Club.
