Welcome. Wellesley Country Club is a family-oriented club whose members enjoy a wide variety of recreational and social opportunities. Founded in 1910, our club combines the best of both one hundred years of tradition and modern country club life.
At the heart of WCC is its championship golf course, which will host the U.S.G.A. Senior Women’s Amateur Tournament in 2016. WCC previously hosted the Massachusetts Open in 2010 and other state-level tournaments over the years. From the championship tees, the course offers an exceptionally challenging layout at 6,844 yards. Golfers of all levels can find the course that’s right for them from four other sets of tees played by the men, women and families. In addition to the golf course, the club has a practice tee, two putting greens, a short game practice area and an indoor practice facility.
With a history of design by Donald Ross, Wayne Stiles and Geoffrey Cornish, the club is fortunate to have one of only two courses that has felt the touch of this trio of New England’s most prolific and distinguished golf course architects. More recent modifications, by Mark Mungeam, upgraded the layout for the 2010 Massachusetts Open—held as part of the club’s centennial celebration. The club has hosted over a dozen championships sponsored by the USGA and the MGA. The course plays to a par of 71 and its five sets of tees provide yardages—ranging from 5,474 to 6,903 yards—for all abilities.
The Wellesley Country Club offers year-round tennis with our two indoor courts and eight outdoor clay courts. The adult tennis program has many things to offer both social and competitive players. For women, the club has four teams competing in the Dorothy Bruno Indoor Tennis League. The Tennis program offers a robust Junior Development Program. Our platform tennis program features a state-of-the-art Platform Tennis facility. Four courts with a paddle hut that is perfect for post match socializing or paddle tennis gatherings.
At Wellesley Country Club, celebrations are more than just planned; they are created. Every detail is the result of decisions made to ensure your special event is precisely what is expected. Our banquet staff is meticulous in the execution of each event with exacting skill, pride, and professionalism. Our Director of Catering, Pam Towle, will gently guide you through all the important stages of designing your event, ultimately eliminating any anxiety you may feel along the way.
Our entire Club community takes great pride in entertaining our guests. Our staff is committed to ensuring that all of your golf, dining and recreational needs are met during your visit to Wellesley Country Club.

Born and raised in New Hampshire, Tim grew up playing every sport he could. When it became evident that Major League Baseball was not in the cards, he turned his focus toward tennis.
While attending graduate school for education, Tim was lucky enough to secure a job at the WCC based on a recommendation from a former high school teammate who was then working at the club. Upon graduation, Tim realized the combination of teaching and playing a game he loved was a perfect fit. 15 years later, he does not regret his decision.
Tim resides in Medfield with his wife and two children. When off the court, Tim enjoys spending time with his family, preferably someplace where they can go fishing, or better yet, surfing.
