Stunning course and home of Tyrrell Hatton

Harleyford is a hidden gem in Marlow, impeccable greens and fairways all year round, not a sign of winter mats or winter greens even is the wettest days of winter due to the clever course design which naturally drains.

The signature hole of 12 is a stunning and challenging PAR 3 and if you are lucky you might bump into Tyrrell Hatton as this is his home course when in the UK and I've been lucky enough to warm up with him on a chipping green a few times.

Awful experience

Chronologically, I started the day at the driving range, there were a variety of poor range balls and they were very much overpriced, if you pay for 25 balls, only 23 come out. I walked up to the driving range and it was effectively a field with very few targets (yardages on the post weren’t even accurate). The mats were rock solid and ‘stoney’ which I noticed caused damage to my irons. In addition, I couldn’t even hit driver because they don’t provide a rubber tee - you have to pay an extra £3 to borrow one. The chipping green was in poor condition, many divots taken out of the green and incredibly slow.

Proceeding onto the course, the fairways looked like the rough and the greens were painfully slow. One of the positives is that the design of the course is relatively pleasant, it’s a real shame that it’s not maintained by the green keepers. After a tedious front 9, the ‘newly renovated’ half way house contained two vending machines that didn’t take cash and the machine didn’t register my / my partner’s contactless cards. The back 9 was equally disappointing, poor condition and slow bobbly greens.

After the round, we went into the clubhouse to have a drink and a small meal. The menu was simply appalling, overpriced and lacked a variety of healthy options. For instance, we ordered a bowl of chips (£3) to share, they were completely undercooked - we had a couple each and left them. I ordered bangers and mash (£10), the sausages were clearly of poor quality and the mash was mediocre. My wife ordered a Caesar salad (£9) and she thought it was very much ‘average’.

To conclude, this was a dreadful experience, we had high expectations from their social media platform images as well as the gallery on the Harleyford website however this was completely unrepresentative of the reality of the course. I’m very disappointed by the range, the condition of the course, the greens, the clubhouse menu (variety and pricing).

Before paying for green fees or range tokens at this club, I’d strongly recommend having a look around the place - in order to know the lifeless reality of the club before spending money.

Thanks for the review. I am sorry that Harleyford didn't live up to your expectations. I was shocked to read this review as that is not what we expect our customers to experience. I would be grateful if you could get in contact to discuss improving your experience. There are a few things in your review that are factually incorrect so would relish the opportunity to get this rectified. I look forward to hearing from you shortly. The Harleyford Team.

From the moment you arrive you know you're in for a pleasant round. Lovely clubhouse, art sculptures adding a touch of class and a nice course layout make for an all round enjoyable day had by 4 of us. Fairways were a little patchy in places, but only a minor thing. Each hole seemed to pose a solid challenge, but always with a bail out or safe option, which is great. All in all fantastic for £45. Will play again

Poor fairways, excellent greens

Overall a superb facility , clubhouse etc, but as is the case with a lot of course without integral sprinkler systems the fairways are in a terrible condition and really a local rule for pick and place should be force. Without rain things are not gogin to improve. The greens are immaculate and overall a good course with a variety of interesting holes

Thanks for the review. The course was designed by Donald Steel in 1995 to not have fairway irrigation which allows a completely different style of course in Summer than the winter. The one consistent is the greens which are always tip top. Please come and visit us again soon. The Harleyford Team.

First time round here on a small society day. Lovely course in great condition. Played with a friend who's a member so useful to have some knowledge of the course as we went around as they are quite a few humps and hollows as you go round, and many of the greens have different tiers and various borrows. Good course guide available which is the same as on the club website. Course was in great nick despite heavy overnight rain. Decent course to walk though there are a couple of climbs in the round but nothing too severe. Well worth playing and will enjoy coming back.

Brilliant in every department

I booked a round with Leah in the office, who quickly gave us available tee times and prices, and directions to the course. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly by Leah and her team. Peter in the shop gave us advice on the course, and told us where the driving range and facilities were. We arrived with plenty of time to spare, so had breakfast in the lounge and watched the TV. The course was lovely, and had drained especially well from the recent downpours. No 2 holes are the same, with there being short and long holes, doglegs left and right, and uphill and downhill. The stand out hole is the 12th, a beautiful par 3 carved into a chalk cliff face. The greens are very undulating and difficult to read, so stay below hole! Whilst I played my wife walked the dogs by the river, and joined us (with the dogs!) in the clubhouse for lunch. Looking forward to returning sooner rather than later.

We held our annual Christmas Golf Society day at Harleyford in December and had a great day. As usual the course and greens were in great condition particularly for this time of year. The clubhouse provides excellent facilities to host a range and size of events and the Christmas lunch was excellent.
