A wonderful course worth playing
Standards slippingDespite the incredible amount of rainfall in August, I expected to still see good conditions at Harleyford... unfortunately the greens were all very bobbly and looked as though disease had taken over a number of them, and the fairways had a tinge of late autumn-ess to them with lots of dried mud, to the extent that I feel preferred lies should have been in play. The course itself is still a treat with few gimme holes and a great challenge, but the greens are what HGC is known for, and the greens are what's letting it down at the moment.
Overpriced poor condition golf courseDisappointed with this golf club, lovely layout but condition was very bad, patchy fairways and embarrassing greens. Very overpriced green fee for what should be a ‘pay and play’. Maybe worth £15 not £50. Field of a driving range.
Copurse in great condition inspite of the current problemsStaff are working very hard to provide as good a service as they can within the restrictions
Stunning course and home of Tyrrell HattonHarleyford 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 experienceChronologically, 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.

Poor fairways, excellent greensOverall 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
AmazingAbsolutely amazing course. One of the nicest courses in Bucks. a few tricky holes.

Brilliant in every departmentI 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.

Great courseGreat course, great conditions. The tees are all level and mostly without tee off marks. Worth visiting again.
