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

First time I have played this course, and would definitely go back, as we only paid £35 for the round. The course was very good condition, and the greens the best I played all year. Just shame 8 could play the back 9 holes the same as the front 9.

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.
I play here a lot it's a great course! Lots of water, lots of fun. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a challenge.

Played here in March for the first time, so it's nice to come and play a second time when you know where your going. The course is currently as good as I could wish for,the greens are really superb. The tee boxes and fairways were impeccable and the rough,if you went really wide, was properly penal.
Not happy that the vending machine at what passes for a halfway house had no drinks in the hottest week of the year. I mean it's 32C and I was melting. Still, scored 21 points on the back nine, so maybe that's the trick!
(Round played: Jun 2017 - Score: 98 Handicap: 25.7)
Played this course with a strong wind and intermittent showers but have to say I'd come back again! No easy holes, a thinkers course with water to the front of most par threes. Greens appear to have elephants buried under them. Great clubhouse facilities, put it on your list. My only criticism would be the driving range which is quite small with only a few bays.
