Last visit to shaw hill

Paid £35 for this round and must say the course isn’t looking good. £20 per round would of been more realistic. The tee areas were in need of some TLC and the course wasn’t well maintained. We haven’t played it for a while and won’t be playing again unless it’s £25 or less..

Fantastic Course

Shaw Hill is a fantastic tactical course where you have to choose you're clubs and shots wisely to avoid hazards.

It was my first time playing the course and it was throughly enjoyable and I look forward to playing it again in the near future.

Every hole has its own character which made the whole round interesting and fun.

Poor greens and slow pace of play

Hadn’t played Shaw Hill for over 20 years and I have to say I was disappointed. The greens were rock hard with bare patches all over. It took 4 and a 1/2 hours to play the round as a two ball (we had to wait on every shot from the 4th tee). Toilet facilities on the course consisted of a portaloo which in this day and age is unacceptable. There are also no refreshments available on the course.

Off course facilities were ok considering the restrictions due to COVID-19.

Fantastic Course

Course was in great condition. All fairways cut lovely and well drained.
Greens were very fast as it looks like they had put sand down but there was no undulations because of this.

Staff were lovely when spoken to.

Greens shocking

Lovely layout but greens were worst I’ve played on this year. Gouges on every green like someone been chipping bits out of them. Horrifically slow round as well and the fella in pro shop was a miserable git.

Great October Golf

Stunning setting, weather was really nice, course looked immaculate. Standard Sunday afternoon pace but it wasn’t unbearable. The undulations make it a real test for club choices. Overall a great day & we’ll be back soon

Great course

Great course, ut had handled the recent rain quite well considering. Paths and some areas wet and boggy but the actual course very playable with no standing water on fairways etc. Only issue was it was fully booked and at our tee time there were still 2 groups on the tee waiting so if it gets busy expect to be waiting if you play at a half decent pace
