Review's of Hazlemere Golf Club
Great testing course
Steep hills and many blind shots make the course a very difficult one for first timers here as the signage is not great, but the course was in superb condition. Challenging but enjoyable. Very friendly and helpful members. Overall great experience and excellent value for money. Our green fee through teeofftimes was £17 --- bargain!
Excellent Golf Course, If its good enough for Luke Donald enough said.
This is a beautiful golf course set in the Bucks Country side, rolling hills and valleys and excellent greens
Good value for money play with a member and its £20
This course is good for your heart and will keep you fit.
The club house is very clean and serves excellent beer.
Dare to play
It all started here for Luke Donald. That says it all! Intimidating course that will test the very best.
It helps to have played the course before.
Greens in superb condition which are fast and a few have those snakes which slides your ball away from the home at the last inch thinking your ball will definitely go in but surprises those who do not concentrate.
Great course with four holes up the hill, only the toughest will survive. ..
All in all a wonderful and challenging course
The very best way to appreciate this course from afar is to read Brigittes review which is accurate and descriptive as well as objective. Not long in yards but course planning essiential.The greens are very well protected and not flat.Very steep climbs and decents.Many interesting and tricky holes thru great countryside.Very well maintained this was a joy to play.
Played as an invitation (read as freebie) charity day, so wouldn’t normally travel this far; however, what a lovely course, with hills, dips, scenery, fast tight greens. All in all a very nice course, and one I may just be tempted to drive the 65 miles to play again.
Loved, loved, loved Hazlemere
There are a few decent climbs to be had as you go round, but the views are pretty spectacular and there some gorgeous holes to be played. Oh, and the greens were like lightning.
You'll have to get used to sloping fairways too, starting off with the 1st which has a huge drop from the tee. Make the most of it, because you'll be climbing back up the other way soon enough!
Great course, great clubhouse, friendly welcome. What more could you ask for?
2 Mr Smiths, 1 Mrs Smith (actually Lady Lockwood) enjoy a round in Buckinghamshire...
Hazlemere is a beautiful, well kept course situated off the M40, between High Wycombe and Beaconfields in the Chilterns Hills where red kites are often seen.
It is a Members Club (no changing shoes in the car park), it is classy and posh (well the Ladies changing rooms are) and very pleasant. The course is a beauty from every angle and above where red kites delight you with their elegant flight display.
Wide fairways, lush and well manicured, hardly any divots marks, lots of mature trees, not flat by any means, our round was a terrific work out. Guess who is going to be aching tomorrow? I guess the 3 of us will. Lots of blind shots, quite difficult to know where to go, as no course planner available (in print at the moment), some guiding posts, but sometimes a bit of guess work, well it was for me when I thought the dog leg was Left but it was in fact Right, so I took a long route....
The greens were superb but very tricky when you are not used to reading them, left meant right and vice versa, some slopping, some tiered, all very fast and well maintained. Enormous sand bunkers, in the right places, well filled as we found out on a few occasions, 1 or 2 had stagnent water. Water comes into play on 2 or 3 holes but not a major attraction, as ponds are very small but pretty. Not a very long course for playing, but long for walking with climbs and descents, good to bring the heart rate up, extremely well drained considering all the recent downpours.
Easy wayfinding, some holes are quite near each others considering the course is over 100 acres, stunning views, when you look at one end you wonder if you were really overthere 15 minutes ago as it seems so far in the distance. Each hole has a very smart signage on dark wooden posts embedded in broken slates, the 15th has an atrractive and new wooden bench by the Ladies Tee, donated by (sorry cant remember), it is Par 3 with fairly new trees shaped like little soldiers, so it makes this hole a feature and distract you from the green not easy to read and well guarded by a bunker on the right.
Friendly staff, Clubhouse and terrace looked inviting but we did not stop as we had a late round so we could get the cheaper rate of £18.00 instead of £30 or £40.
Open driving range and chipping area , the Proshop will lend you a tube with 20 balls for practice (no charge), a very smart and true putting green by the 18th and terrace by the Clubhouse. A very beautiful course, must be a pleasure to belongs and to get to know it, challenging for every level and very enjoyable, especially so if you love nature and wildlife and red kites.Will return as not that far from home and I liked it....
PS: Forgot to mention that Hazlemere was the home club of young Luke Donald aged 9.... He is an Honorary Member now.
