What the club says: The historic championship golf course is situated in the rolling parkland that surrounds the original Georgian mansion house. The course is a fine test from the back tees for the low handicapper and the lakes and streams that feature on most holes will leave all players with something to think about. The highlight for many is the sweeping Par 4 8th hole, with a stream to carry and a pond next to the green it certainly merits its stroke index 1 status! The golf club celebrated its 75th anniversary in January 2001.

Nice course, worth playing

Second time playing Shaw Hill, friendly welcome, good bacon bap to start. Course was very wet following recent poor weather, greens had been top dressed, some on temporary. Still a good lay out, worth playing but in drier conditions. Good food afterwards.

Surprising challenge

Drop in to try this excellent course. Mature parkland with grand mature oaks, lakes and streams it is well above most courses in the UK and provides some more significant risk reward options to match many top championship courses. Sharp doglegs aside and angled tee drives onto fairways, a favourite must be the 5th hole with mid-hole chicane around a small lake! From the medal tee you will need to be brave. This course is one not suited to a weaker player....most suited to a low handicapper.

Impressive

Hands down best course I have ever played. If you enjoy a challenge and can shape a ball left and right then this course is a test of those abilities. Played end of August and course was in superb condition

Had a fantastic day on thusday 13/6 2019, which was perfectly set up by the Pro Rachel. Course was superb and very well maintained by the green staff.
All our players were impressed by how friendly and inviting the staff were and will definitely be returning soon.
Thanks again Rachel

Lovely course --but avoid if wet --unplayable

This is a lovely scenic course with some really interesting and challenging holes and I'm sure would be lovely to play on a dry sunny day .But after a period of rain its virtually unplayable-- as no buggies were allowed push trolleys made for a hard days golf. Add to that the number of lost balls due to them getting plugged and buried in the quagmire that passed for some fairways and it wasn't pleasant. The much vaunted 8th ( by the club !) was certainly a feature hole when we played -- the first ever floating green I have ever tried to putt on !! We just got the weather wrong --but seriously avoid after rain.

Stunning course. Some seriously tricky holes making club selection vital. Pretty tight course, but nice rough so can always find your ball and have a shot out. Hilly in places but very well maintained.
