From the moment that Severiano Ballesteros first created his vision for The Shire London in 2002, to its opening in 2007, and to the present day, ‘The Shire’ has never been far from the headlines. Play Seve’s only course in the UK, and you will discover why. Immaculately conditioned, the Seve Masters course at The Shire London is laid out like few other golf courses in the world. There are six par 5s, six par 4s and six par 3s, and on both the front 9 and the back 9, no two consecutive holes are the same par, with equal numbers of par 3s, 4s and 5s. This gives maximum variety, and maximum enjoyment, a core philosophy of Seve's designs.
From your tee shot on the 1st to your approach shot at the 18th, Seve’s imaginative design at The Shire London will challenge you like few other inland courses in the UK. Be brave, trust your swing, and attack it like the maestro himself would want you to. The course offers a number of different visual aspects. Some will have a distinctly links feel with gorse and high level fescues. In other areas we are creating woodland plantations with over 10,000 mature trees. There are parkland holes with dramatic water features. There is a choice of tee positions on every hole which you are entitled to play depending on your ability and your courage!
