The wand of Gregory Goyle was of unknown length, wood and core and materials.

It was purchased by him (more likely his mother or father) prior to his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1991–1992 school year. This wand was most likely manufactured by Garrick Ollivander and purchased from his wand shop Ollivanders, in Diagon Alley, London. In the 1992–1993 school year, Goyle sat in Transfiguration resting his head on his wand while Professor Minerva McGonagall told the class about how to transform animals into water goblets, with the spell Vera Verto.[1]

Goyle was neither an exceptionally intelligent or gifted wizard and relied more on his physical strength and size than magical ability, so his wand typically went unused throughout his school life. This changed when Hogwarts came under the control of the Death Eaters, however. Goyle learned the Dark Arts under Amycus Carrow and proved to be a skilled Dark wizard, using the Cruciatus Curse on fellow students who had earned detentions.[2]

Goyle was disarmed in the Skirmish at the Room of Requirement during the Battle of Hogwarts, sending his wand flying out of his hand and into a pile of objects behind him. Goyle tried but failed to retrieve it and it was subsequently destroyed when Vincent Crabbe unleashed Fiendfyre in the room.[3]
