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.

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.

Interesting course not for the feint hearted

The famous Seve Ballesteros designed course is a very nice course indeed. A bit of a mash up of varying styles from Links to classic Mediterranean gives a slightly confusing identity but it has been done very well. LOTS of water to kill your score but on the whole a great test of skill and nerve. The club house is OK, but could do with some more character and the very impersonal ordering of drinks and food via phone app is a let down.
Definitely one to experience but think you're paying more for the Seve association than anything else.

Nice course

Nice Seve course, as is usual for his courses par 5's seem very long. You do need to play to the course or balls can very easily be lost in water.

I have to give credit where credit is due, this course has never been a favorite of mine but on Saturday it was in the best condition that I have ever seen it in.
I don't know if they have new green keeping staff but the course was in good condition.

Great Course

Good facilities and great challenging course.
Seve certainly plays with your mind.
Tricky greens some two tiers, blind tee shots and challenging water to lay up or carry.
