What the club says: Harewood Downs Golf Club lies on the south side of the Misbourne Valley and dates back to 1907 when it was laid out for the recreational use of members of the House of Commons and the legal establishment. Harewood is a pretty course, well endowed with a rich variety of trees - birch, cypress, ash, maple, plum and cherry - and has some stunning views.

Hidden Gem

Beautiful golf course in the Chilterns.

Great layout and very testing at times.

Amazing greens and bunkers.
Faiways have all been worked on so will improve given time.

Really nice service in the clubhouse and great food.

Nice course in good condition. Good value given the summer season green fee. Be prepared - this course is an absolute beast to walk it, get a buggy !

Very enjoyable round - felt, in terms of the course, the par 4s and 5s were fairly forgiving such that even if you went slightly left or slightly right you weren't punished too highly which is good for players like me.

Team activity

Second round on the course so not too bad. Greens very fast, but the ladies section is very hospitable and welcoming. The course is by no means easy, lots of slopes, but it is nice to have a course that is challenging.

Excellent greens

Very friendly and welcoming club including the pro shop, bar and other members on the course.
Greens were really true, not too fast but in great condition. Bunkers also well managed.
The course had suffered from the fairways being scorched earlier in the season. Watering is difficult apparently. Some were a little bare in places so my partner and I agreed not to play off the bare bits in recovery.

Great Course

Lovely course, not easy at all, quite hilly, some blind holes but great views. Tricky greens, just wish I had played better. Look forward to returning

Friendly and fast ...

Visited the course again and discovered some very friendly members who invited me to join their 2 ball as a 4
A course you have to think about but equally forgiving for us high handicap players.
Greens in great condition despite a long spell of bad weather and FAST ...
Loved every minute on the course and on the 19th

Very nice course

In very good condition. Very hilly, greens in very good condition but very difficult to read direction & speed. Definitely worth a visit if you get the opportunity

A lovely amble around 18 holes of undulating fairways.

I played the course today with 2 friends and though it was breezy, and the greens had been top dressed had a lovely day.

The course is very well presented, the fairways are superb, and the semi rough quite short. There is very little real rough around though what there is can be hard to escape. The bunkers all seemed consistent and though I was a little errant managed to escape from all those I found!!!!

A couple of the long par 3s actually play longer than the yardage so careful clubbing is required. There are a few holes where you cannot see the whole fairway, however if you hit the ball down the middle you will find it when you walk down the fairway.

I think it is a fair course with plenty of character and variety and would recommend a visit to the course.

The only slight gripe is that it can be hard to find the next hole and there is quite a bit of walking between holes.

It'll be won or lost on the greens!

A beautifully presented course, offering a good challenge for even the stronger golfers amongst us! It was a very windy day and the wind certainly played its part, but the course will be won or lost on the fantastic and fantastically fast greens! Putt well and you'll net a good score, but anything long or short will leave a challenging second putt!
