Played the course. Should’ve been shut. Lost balls on the fairways that just went into the ground. Some cases needed to paddle across the fairways from dry patch to dry patch - not good.

If you want challenging Golf or a sunset glass of Prosecco in North London you won't beat The Shire. All handicaps will find the course challenging but it's there to be beaten. Very professional but not in anyway stuffy, very welcoming staff and a fine...More
