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.

Wonderful course. So deceptive. Lots of blind tee shots and approaches and plenty of risk/reward situations

Matthew J rated 5 out of 5 - Jun 20 2017

In great condition.
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!

A Delightful Challenge!
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.
