8 reviews of Central London Golf Centre

This is a decent place for anyone keen to start playing golf, but if you've experienced even just a nice golf course I fear you'll be quickly frustrated. The fairways are OK, but the greens were very poor and inconsistent. The driving range and chipping area are hardly worth the effort, but the pros seem helpful and friendly and various lessons packages are available for beginners.

A small club, with a 50-60 yard driving range and a par 9 course.
First thing to say, do not come here expecting a decent course. Unfortunately the 9th hole is the only well maintained hole. Clearly the fairways and the bunkers are not raked and cleared of stones.
However, this is the only club within the London area where I have found the members and staff very friendly and welcoming. To me this is the single most important part of golf. To feel that you are relaxed and can concentrate on enjoying the experience.
I continue to visit this course even though I have access to much more upmarket clubs because of this fact.
Highly recommended as a fun day out with your friends.

A great starter. Narrow fairways and a few testing holes. 6th hole always gets me, a short one with lots of rough and a water hazard! Great pro's and a good way to spend an hour. Short par 31 but some good length par 4s.

I live in London and live nearby this course, you could say this is where I found my passion for the sport. The practice faclities are decent and the pro shop is good with friendly staff meeting you at the door. However, the course is a different matter. In all my time of playing there I have never seen a groundsman working on the course. Some of my clubs have been scratched, dented or broken from the stones lying in the fairway and bunkers. The tees and greens are very muddy but the fairways are testing as they are very thin. The nineth hole however is a joy to play with a 7 iron over a lake onto a wide green. Even though I enjoy the atmosphere there I would rather play one hour away than play there as the conditions are really not that great. One thing that I can say is good are the golf lessons.

A fine inner-city little course. I played as part of a large party that had lunch served in between each of our rounds. I definitely can recommend the course to beginners and improvers and the cartering facilities were excellent too.

This is my local course and where it all started for me. It is always busy at the weekend but not as busy as the nearby Richmond Park. Nothing really to challenge the accomplished golfer but for beginners and high handicappers it does offer some challenges. Trees have recently been added to the already narrow fairways. Some other improvements are also taking place. Overall a good little course very central to London.

Pretty good for what is more or less central London. Obviously there are residential areas right up to the edge of the course so a hook or a slice may mean more than just a lost ball. 3 long holes run parallel so keep eyes open for stray shots from all directions. One permanent water hazard with several more added after heavy rain as the bunkers soon fill up. All in all the 18 holes make for a good, fun day out especially for those living in central and central/south London.

Not the best course you will ever play, but location-wise it is not bad. Quite expensive, but it is always fully booked on Saturdays, so obviously not that expensive. The greens are quite patchy, and the fairways narrow. Accuaracy is a must. Beware of range balls flying through the end nets!!
