Description

Finchley Golf Club is a golfing haven only six miles from London's West End, where individual visitor and visiting golf groups are greeted with equal warmth (some time restrictions).

The 6,356 yard, par 72, wooded, parkland course was designed by five-times Open winner James Braidand.  It is generally recognised as the finest challenge of golf in London and the short, uphill 12th hole, "Braid's Masterpiece", is one of the best know par threes in the south of England. 

In mid-summer, when the trees are in full leaf, the views are stunning. It is easy to forget you are close to central London. The fairways are lush but narrow, the sloping greens are fast and tricky. The panorama above includes views of the back nine holes. 

The club is set in the grounds of an imposing Victorian stately home that has served as the clubhouse for more than 70 years.  The quality of the clubhouse facilities match that of the course and even offers a perfectly placed veranda where you can relax and enjoy a drink and some food after your round while watching the action on the 12th, 13th and 18th holes.

A gem

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.

THE END.......

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
