The quality & presentation of this course is a credit to the greens staff. This is a real test of golf, with with some long tough holes. The greens are as good as any championship course.

Well worth a visit.

The course was challenging and included some lovely looking holes. Conditions after a wet winter meant the greens need some work

After the round I stayed for a drink and wished I hadn't bothered . Not allowed in golf bar had to go alone to empty room and pay expensive prices for poor service. Very unfriendly I was deliberately ignored.

I'd heard really good things about this course.

The course was in good condition. Greens were very good.

I played at 3pm and we were crammed in.

I was part of a two ball with a 3 ball in front and two 4 balls behind. Lots of waiting on tees.

It was ok, I didn't feel wowed by the course. Definitely worth a play but don't feel I need to play it again.

Always predictably good.

Lovely course with some memorable holes and beautiful hotel/clubhouse.

Traffic made us late, but the staff were very accommodating and got us on the course as soon as we arrived....with no fuss, despite our booking at z discounted rate.

Love it every time I play there.

Nice parkland course with well maintained fairways and greens. Rolling countryside within a semi urban setting. Quiet during my round so no hold ups and able to play at my own pace. Only difficulty was getting out of the car park after as not given the code or token to raise the barrier. Make sure you get this before you leave.

Let's get the important stuff out of the way 1st. Shaw Hill is a good test of golf and was very well presented when we played. Everywhere was tidy and looked great. The problem was the pace of play. We were a 2 ball behind a 4 ball in buggies who were themselves behind 3 groups of 3 balls in buggies or walking. We waited on every single shot and there was never any chance that we would be let through. This led to a 4 1/2 hour round and a great deal of frustration.

We played the course on good Friday and in all honesty the course should have been closed due to its condition . There were people let out in buggies which was just adding to the poor state as the course was sodden, , how the club can let them out I don't know . Unfortunately we had paid in advance or we would have left on arrival

Course is fairly good condition for the time or the year. Quiet in front so was able to motor around. A tad expensive perhaps given it's winter tees in places and mats throughout.

Shaw Hill represents a decent challenge even when the fairways are running well. The course was quiet wet in places- bunkers for example were compacted entirely. A few of the greens look like they have weeds. All the greens were in play, but all tees were mats.

Perhaps the most frustrating thing is that it's mats from the every lie. A On the other hand it was fairly busy but the pace of play was good, and the lady in the hotel reception very helpful.
