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.Read our full review

Most Helpful Review
Straight hitters course with distance control required.
Practice chipping area and driving range for the pre match warm up!
Course is very well laid out and the best part for me was the par 3s, all seemed to be island green with water on all but one, very tight driving course with real penial rough or gorse either side of the fairways.
Par 72 with 6 par 3s, 4s,5s very windy day so bit of a slog on some, greens in good condition
Changing rooms with showers and towels nice touch after a 90 mile drive.
£60 a round weekdays, £75 at weekends would I pay that? For me NO

(Round played: Mar 2018 - Score: 96 Handicap: 14.8)
(Round played: Nov 2017 - Score: 94 Handicap: 10.5)
Have wanted to play The Shire for some time and if I?m honest was slightly disappointed, not because I played poorly but maybe I was expecting more, we were playing in 25-30mph winds so didn?t help, overall course layout was good with some interesting holes, would recommend playing but maybe not in November.
