About Wollaston Golf Club
Founded in 1895, Wollaston Golf Club is a private, member owned 18-hole golf club located in Milton, Massachusetts. Wollaston features dining facilities and function rooms, an 18 hole golf course, swimming pool and four outdoor tennis courts.
As the story goes, the idea of starting a golf club originated with Wendell G. Corthell, who later became Wollaston’s first club president. In 1893 Mr. Corthell invited a few friends and neighbors to his house in Quincy to discuss their favorite pastime. All agreed it would be a nice thing to have a golf course of their own and they set out to enlist the aid of others in the neighborhood. This small group emerged as the founders of a golf club. The club was re-organized in 1895 and became known as the Wollaston Golf Club.
In October of 1969 at a meeting of the Membership of Wollaston Golf Club it was voted to acquire 152 acres in Milton. The transaction was complete one month later and in the spring of 1975 the Clubhouse was open to the membership and the following spring all 18 holes had been constructed. Club Championship and Fallon Cup Tournaments in 1976 were all contested at the new course.
The golf course, designed by golf architects George and Tom Fazio, has played host to a number of championships over the years. One of the most recent was the 1992 U.S. Junior Championship which was the second of three that Tiger Woods won. The course, nestled in the Blue Hills, plays through 6,748 yards of tall pines and a few ponds on the front nine. In contrast, the back has a much more open feel to it and concludes with an uphill 421 yard par 4. This closing hole plays much longer than the yardage on the card due to a severe uphill approach shot to the undulated green complex.
The contributions of the Membership of the present as well as the past are our greatest asset. Wollaston Golf Club is a club of men and women who, through their love of the game, continue to improve upon the history of our club for future generations.
