What the club says: The Seve Masters course at The Shire London is laid out like few other golf courses in the world. There are six par 5s, six par 4s and six par 3s, and on both the front 9 and the back 9, no two consecutive holes are the same par, with equal numbers of par 3s, 4s and 5s. This gives maximum variety, and maximum enjoyment - a core philosophy of Seve's designs.

Disappointed

For a course that cost ?100 to play, it's not in a great condition.

The fairways are littered with divot marks that people haven't repaired, with one fairway having more sand in the holes than any of the bunkers on the course.

The bunkers were almost unplayable, as they were rock hard

Not worth paying the green fees at the moment for this course. Played on this course yesterday and still plenty of green and fairway preparation required. Probably needs another month before course is up to cratch.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY

Played in a corporate golf day in September. Venue and staff nice and relaxed, course beautiful, greens and fairways just perfect. The course is not long off the blues, but does demand accuracy as there is water everywhere, and you can score well on the numerous Par 5's and 3's. Can't wait to go back! Note: the on-course greens are NOT as scary as the practice green

A gem in Barnet

The course is always in great shape even when the rain has fallen as the only course in England designed by the great Seve you would expect great drainage and greens.

Have played it several times and have four friends who are members.

Amazing Course

In wonderful condition. Each hole is a challenge, but fair. Loved it! Greens are very tough; pin positions were diabolical.

With 6 par 3's, 6 par 4's and 6 par 5's, there was lots of variety and a real challenge. The course was in great condition, with very well maintained fairways and greens. There was also plenty of water to contend with. The layout was beautiful and it was clear that the course had been very well looked after.

Great practice course, great place to practice short game and a couple holes really good for hitting fairway woods off the tee

Hertfordshire's finest.

Fantastic course although the score does not show my best day.
However the course was very plush and green compared to other local courses.
Would love to play there again at sometime.

Tough Conditions

Due to the recent rain the conditions under foot was tough, perfect strikes required. Also the greens have been spiked and sanded so again judgement of pace and line very challenging. Waiting for better conditions.

A typical Seve course

A typical Seve course. Par 5 seem very long, but on all holes you have to play to the course. On many other courses you can get away with 'just hitting' the ball with the right club, on The Shire you have to think about the shot you play.
