In between Hendon, North Finchley and Mill Hill, this is a little gem. Having read Brigitte and Mr Flynn's reviews, there is very little to add (golf wise).
The club house is now a little run down with 'closed' signs around the entrance side - I'm guessing this is due in part to the bloody virus. But the good news is that you can get a beer or coffee after the round in the bar.
It's definitely worth a visit. (Even with the present situation, this course is in pretty good nick, better than many)
Gem of a course & fantastic value for today's Open, great hospitality....
This certainly was a fantastic way to discover a little gem of a course in leafy North London. £25 for an Open, included Coffee/bacon roll, freebies on registration, free Clinic with Head Pro, 18 holes shot gun start, a buffet lunch, prize presentation , a Hamper for a lucky winner drawn out of all those attending, a gift from the Lady Captain.....
The clubhouse is a superb Victorian residence with a few remaining features which are delightful. The golf course is a gem with lovely fairways, a little wet today but very manageable, fantastic greens with very, very subtle breaks that even our Member President 'Navinder' could miss...... The bunkers are absolutely spot on, well it is a James Braid design so expect a superb layout all the way.
Nice mix of attractive Par 3, 4 & 5 giving all club golfer a chance to play to their handicap or better. Some trees lining the fairways are of Canadian origin due to the owner's native place.
A few ditches across some fairways, or lateral so a need for right club selection & correct target line will keep you focused & help you score.
The signature hole is the 12th, Par 3, uphill toward the Clubhouse, a lovely fountain on the left hand side, deep bunker guarding the hole in front and a small one on the left: just gorgeous.....and the green is quite treacherous too.
The 18th is a lovely finishing hole with the Green in front of Clubhouse and its terrace overlooking it.
A large car park, well stocked Proshop, 2 large Ladies changing rooms up the lovely wooden flight of stairs, with an beautiful original stained glass window. The Victorian certain,y knew how to build private residence.
A very good chipping, pitching area, nice practice green, nets, not sur where the driving range was.
This is an impressive place to play golf and I certainly would love to belong, as it seems lively, good mix of Men/Ladies, Businees people, retired, Juniors etc...seems very friendly, not snooty, but welcoming.
The a lady Captain was more than helpful, so was the Golf manager. & secretary.
A big thank to Anna G. who played her best golf & impressed the President and to Andy F. for his nice chit-chat and his excellent attempt at promoting the TSG. A good 4 balls but my own game was not his best today.
I personally met some very friendly Lady golfers who are most likely to become friends as we share the same passion and have free time, some mix of nationalities too: British, French, Italian etc...
A great day at a great course and a great deal.
get a deal here and you'll love it-I'm going back again
Some verynice holes on this course, height changes, dog legs some sweeping fairways, and greens you have to read well, and are a good speed even when wet as our day there.
Friendly staff throughout from pro shop to bar and ground staff. Lack of a short game that works regularly meant on 33 points, but not the courses fault.
I am definitely going back again
Good course, close to London
I liked the variety on this course. Greens were good and fast.
A drive required over a hedge, good dog-legs, and some long par 4s
