Wentworth Club is a privately owned golf club, located in Virginia Water, Surrey. Founded in 1922, the club is steeped with history. Originally home to the brother in law of the Duke of Wellington, the house was known as ‘Wentworths’. In 1850, it was brought by the Duke of Maestrazgo and his heiress wife. In 1922, builder W.G Tarrant acquired development rights for the Wentworth Estate and instructed Harry Colt to develop a golf course around Wentworth house. However, the developement came to a halt due to the Great Depression. Eventually, Tarrant was forced to declare bankruptcy. The ownership of the land passed to Wentworth Estates Ltd, which came under the control of Sir Lindsay Parkinson & Co Ltd.
Wentworth Club is today best known for hosting professional golf championships, namely the BMW PGA Championship.
Wentworth also contains a tennis and health club. This consists of a gymnasium, dance studio, health spa, ozone swimming pool and jacuzzi, crèche facilities, changing rooms, and a café.
In 2004 the club was purchased by fashion industry entrepreneur Richard Caring for £130 million and in 2014, the club was sold to Beijing-based Reignwood Investments for £135m.
