Well looked after course

Nicely cut fairways and true greens with some very challenging hill holes

A Course With History

A beautiful course with a rich heritage. In the club house is Walter Hagan's membership application (youngsters Google him!) and on their website a black and white film clip from the 1930s of Percy Allis playing the course. Sometimes such clubs can be stuffy and unwelcoming to visitors . . Pinner Hill wasn't like that; it was very welcoming.

Good course layout, with interesting holes. Winter conditions made some of the long par 4s even longer. Even shorter holes were made challenging, by bunker placement, two tier greens and sloping fairways.

Don't expect a floodlit driving range, it would be out of character. There are nets, chipping and putting greens. Enough to tune up before a game. Showers and a cosy bar and clubhouse for afterwards.

Finally something which has been overlooked by the other reviewers. The workshop attached to the Pro Shop belongs to Kevin Redfern. He is not just a club fitter, but a club maker as well. Having worked with Seve and Woosnam, he still works on the current tour. A wonderful friendly guy and he has been voted European Clubmaker of the Year. If you get time, pop your head in his workshop and have a chat.

Can't wait to play this course again.

nice course

hard to find but when you do it is well worth it. The greens looked quick but were not but they had borrows that you could not see. So putting has to be good to get a good score.
Some nice holes a nice par 5 to start with. overall I would definitely come back and play again.

Good challenge - some unusual features

This is a well established mature parkland course set in rolling hills and there are panoramic views from lots of vantage points.

I found it a tricky place to locate as Sat Nav went awry a couple of times, but the residential areas (some quite palatial) were quiet and typically suburban.

Greens were incredibly interesting to read, probably benefit from a return visit at some stage.

Late arrival didn't allow me the luxury of spending too much time in the clubhouse (elegant and period) but from what I saw the staff were welcoming. Neat little pro shop adjacent to the 'slightly complicated' parking arrangements was very pleasant.

First (and 10th) were long downhills, and whilst there were no typically nasty holes, each subsequent hole presented a challenge.

Not overly fond of blind par 3's though so 17th doesn't work for me (downhill - you can see the flag in reverse though an elevated mirror).

Critique is that the practice range is just downhill from the 18th Tee boxes and a wayward shot from a lesson flew inches over the red tees (just as a certain party was lined up to play a shot). Could have been dangerous, and there was a teaching pro supervising.
Still it is a nice day out - elevation changes (not too difficult to navigate when walking) made it interesting.

Fast greens lots of fairway run...

An incredible haven of peace offering a very challenging game.....

First of all I would like to mention that Pinner Hill is a recent addition to the TSG preferred courses, and what a lovely choice.

Today I took part in the Ladies Open @ Pinner Hill (game posted on the TSG), I joined 2 golfing partners from my previous club (Silvermere).

Impressive entrance, via private roads, to a Grade II listed building which is the Clubhouse. Huge car parking facilities in front of the Clubhouse, or on the side where some members have their own private spaces.

A very warm welcome by Ladies & Gents club members who made our day very special, even if my own score was not in the highest, but it was a team effort (the 3 of us won the best back nine, giving us a John Lewis voucher of a certain amount).

And now to the golf course: certainly a tough test, specially so for a 1st visit under one of the warmest day so far. The course is ancient, dating back from 1927 (J H Taylor design) in a mature parkland & woodlands on the hill of Pinner, a haven of peace like I have never seen before, wonderful views of London (12 miles away) with its famous landmarks: Wembley, BT Tower, the Shard and many more, maybe the Thames Estuary & the North Downs....

A tough test as it is sloping, ondulating, (and today very dry fairways, and slow greens) a few blind shots, water comes into play more so in the back 9, the toughest of the two loops, as one can start @ the 1st or the 10th to speed up play.

The course is vast, (Par 74, SSS 73 from the Red Tees) one hardly sees housing, only a few "posh" ones on occasion. Lots of mature trees, part of a forest that provides welcome shade from one hole to the next. Not one hole resembles the other, a total variety so the game is always catching your imagination, making you work hard as what to do next.

Lots of bunkers, but today the sand was very compacted due to the recent dry weather, I managed the challenge a few times. For us Ladies, some short Par 4s and long Par 3s. I shall describe just 2 of my favourites holes:

17th, Par 3, (222yards/Red), raised Tee box (6 steps to climb) with a mirror to see the green as it is really a blind shot, a sloping left fairway, a big post with a yellow beacon at the back of the green which serves as a guide post. A very nice hole to play, got a Par (very nearly a Birdie !).

18th, short Par 5 (358 yards/Red), slight dog led left, a huge ditch/pond with raised bank to negotiate some 245 yards from the green, with wonderful views of London (behind you this time) and of the beautiful Clubhouse by the green, well guarded by big bunkers on either side.

A very challenging course which should be even more enjoyable on subsequent visits.

Friendly, but small Proshop, no Ladies clothing, an adjacent Club fitting workshop.

Nice chipping area, putting green and 2 nets to warm up prior to the round.

Ladies changing rooms upstairs, very well provided.

The Bar is fairly large, lots of outside seating areas, looking onto the 9th & 18th greens and London in the distance.

Two stunning dining rooms, spacious, lots of light provided by the large Georgian windows, huge fireplace.
The Clubhouse used to be a private residence, has got a "happy" feel, Feng shui.

Very friendly members and today they played Car Park attendants, ball spotters, course marshalls, bunker rakers, cool drink servers, changing rooms guardians etc., etc.,wonderful hosts to a Ladies Open day.

I wonder what I forgot to mention: ah, yes, the heat: it was a very hot day... 32 or more degrees C. Saw a few dragonflies & colourful butterflies. Plus, I noticed an unusual pole stick/flagstick at the 9th hole (Par 3), it has got measurements from bottom to top, very useful to accurately measure "Nearest the Pin".

Did not have time to take any photos. Will return. Watch out for my posting.

Well done & thank you TSG team for including this course on the preferred list.


THE END..................if you got that far (as for me, off to bed for my beauty sleep, it's nearly midnight).

Great Views and A Good Test...

When you arrive at Pinner Hill you are immediately taken back a little in time! This is a very traditional style golf club with a grand Clubhouse full of charm and many nooks and crannies. We were met by the very welcoming Clair, who briefed us on where everything was and what we could expect from the course. A quick coffee in the cosy spike bar and we headed out. The course begins with a downhill Par 5 that gets you in the mood and you then spend the next few holes twisting up and down through parkland - although as most of the gradients are slight, you don't really notice until you look back to where you have come. Stop for a moment on the eighth tee and take in the views as far as The City, Wembley and Harrow-on-the Hill - very pleasant. The course then continues through woodland with some very tricky undulating fairways - reminiscent of Foxhills or Brocket Hall. The greens were in good condition(considering the winter) and I can imagine they would be very tricky in Summer. The course finishes with an uphill drive with your second shot across water to the green in front of the Clubhouse. All in all a great course and with its position on the TSG 'Preferred List' I think this could become a TSG favourite.... I will definitely be going back soon!
