Royal Wellington enjoys reciprocation with some 50 local and overseas clubs from 17 different countries. These clubs are amongst the very best in their city or region, offering not only a fine golfing experience but also excellent food and, often, accommodation. Access is designed for Royal Wellington members who are traveling away from their home and not available to members who reside in the city of the reciprocal club.
Please ensure that you consult ‘Etiquette When Visiting a Reciprocal Club’ in the club’s Fixtures and Membership handbook before initiating a request to play at one of our reciprocal clubs.
Please contact the relevant club(s) and make a booking directly with them. When you have the booking advise David.Service@RoyalWellington.com and we will email the club your Letter Of Introduction and copy you in.

Our history dates back to the establishment of the game of golf in Sri Lanka, and over a century of sport and sporting traditions, customs, manners and styles of the British in Ceylon. A fragment of it is to be seen in the founding of the Colombo Golf Club and its life thereafter as the Royal Colombo Golf Club.
In 1879, a handful of intrepid British expatriates decided that it was time to introduce golf to a small British Colony called Ceylon. The British were recognized for their skills in organized sports and it inevitably spread throughout Ceylon. Not only golf but horse racing, polo, cricket, football, hockey and rugby were initially introduced on Galle Face Green. It was there, sharing with cricket and rugby enthusiasts on Galle Face Green, that the Royal Golf Club was inaugurated without a clubhouse or a proper golf course.
After the first year of being inaugurated, nine gentlemen met and decided it was time to elect a committee and create a set of rules to handle the affairs of the club. On the Saturday afternoon of March 13th, 1880, they met at the Colombo Club and held the first Annual General Meeting. Membership was growing fast and Galle Face Green was becoming more and more crowded, what with sharing the ground with other sports enthusiasts and the general public. Edward Aitken took the chair and R. L. M. Brown was the first Honorary Secretary. The first Chairman and Captain was W. Law and the committee consisted of W. Somerville, F. A. Fairlie and R. Webster.
Sir Charles Henry de Soysa, a Ceylonese philanthropist, set up a farm named Alfred Model Farm in pursuit of creating a centre for excellence in agriculture and animal husbandry. The farm never took off and he ended up gifting the land to the colonial government. Around the same time, Sir West Ridgeway arrived in Colombo as the new British Governor of Ceylon. Being a golf enthusiast himself, the golfing community’s requests for a separate ground fell on sympathetic ears. On July 1896 the Alfred Model Farm was officially converted to the Colombo Golf Club.
In 1928, His Majesty King George V, bestowed upon the Club the privilege of using the prefix “Royal”, and consequently the Colombo Golf Club came to be known as the Royal Colombo Golf Club.

The club was founded in 1916 and the Royal Charter was conferred in 1925. Royal Hobart is recognised as Tasmania’s premier members’ Club and particular emphasis is placed on presenting the course in impeccable condition all year round. Original course designer, Vern Morcom, made best use of the natural sand base to construct over 80 fairway and greenside bunkers. These are a special feature of the course that adds an important dimension to how players of all levels approach their game. In 1997 a new course master plan was adopted to guide long term course improvements to ensure Royal Hobart continues to offer a challenging golfing experience for members and visitors alike. Subtle changes have since been introduced, but always conforming to the original design concept. Royal Hobart has hosted a number of major Championship events over the years including the Tasmanian Open, Australian Amateur, Australian Women’s Amateur and the Qantas Australian Open in 1971 which was won by the legendary Jack Nicklaus. Reciprocal members and visitors are most welcome at Royal Hobart.

It is more than a clubhouse, a golf shop, or a place to share a meal with friends. It is a tradition, and one that has been upheld since 1922 by an evolving community of members who share a passion for the game.
