The Shire - London

  • Set within 220 acres of predominantly Hertfordshire countryside, The Shire London is best known for its unique course layout consisting of three distinctive course styles: links, parkland and American.

    With an equal number of par-3’s, 4’s and 5’s, the Masters Course is the only Seve Ballesteros design in the UK, and lays down a demanding test for players of all abilities with a total yardage of 7,028 off the championship tees. Situated on the outskirts of Barnet, just 13 miles north of central London, The Shire London has been named as London’s #1 golfing experience, featuring gently undulating terrain with a number of different visual aspects. At times you’ll enjoy a links feel with gorse and high fescue grass lining the fairways. At other times the woodland exudes more of a parkland feel, while small lakes & ponds create an American style with water coming in to play on 12 holes.

    When the golf course opened for play in 2007, Seve’s main philosophy was to provide maximum variety and maximum enjoyment. The unique course design certainly doesn’t disappoint, with the opening four holes all bringing water in to play, providing one of the most challenging starts in golf within the Greater London area. As the course meanders through the countryside, Seve’s layout continually keeps you on your toes, and builds to a very testing 455-yard par-4 18 th hole. Here, the final green is defended by an S-shaped lake (S standing for Seve), which presents a very tough long approach shot to the green – make or break! Aside from the 18-hole Masters course, The Shire also boasts a 9-hole Academy course.

    This layout offers spectacular views of the countryside and presents a mix of par-3’s and 4’s, maintained to the same high standards as its sister course. Other facilities include a superb bar & restaurant, with a conservatory & outdoor terrace for hot summer days – the perfect place to relax before of after your round. Adjacent to the restaurant is a banquet room that can seat up to 200 people and is well known in the area as the perfect place to host a wedding, event, or simply to act as a meeting area for your annual golf day.
