Good condition although a couple of the greens were slightly sandy. Initially a pretty normal looking first 3 holes but then the course opens up and becomes far more interesting. Accurate placement off the tee is a must with a couple of drives over very large ditches/dips. Fairways again were in very good condition and a good cut of semi rough before the tress or heavier rough. I can't knock the course as overall but it has to be said for the cost of a round it's not the best value around, unfortunately I think as it's in one of the more affluent areas of the city and relies on it's name you expect more from the course.
We had a group of 12 players, bacon rolls on arrival and lunch which was very good. Our choices were between either fish and chips or a burger both of these were well presented and very tasty.
Off Course -
As the course was relatively quiet we didn't have much contact with any members but the course staff were friendly and helpful. The Pro in the shop was friendly although again for a course that has a reputation I found the pro shop to be very ordinary but stocked enough of the basic items to be aceptable.
At £45 for the round I have to say I find it expensive. In comparison for around the same price you can play Worksop GC which in my opinion is superior in all areas.
A most enjoyable day as most golf days are but would not recommend the course if you are looking for value or would recommend others if cost is not a factor.
What a fantastic course!
The best greens I have ever played on in this country.
That wind makes it one hell of a test.
Wish I was a mamber here!
I have been a member at Hallamshire since 1982. The course is renowned locally for its greens which are true and firm. The course is at the top of Lodge Moor so under normal British conditions the wind is a significant factor. The views across the vally is superb. In the summer on a hot calm day when the fairways are dry you need to ensure your ball stays on some of the fairways otherwise slopes and roll will require the next shot to be played from thickish rough. The far end of the course features a stream which runs at the bottom of several stiff climbs, the 8th and 11th being particularly demanding on the legs. Many members as result are commited to their using an electric trolley (Buggies are not allowed). There are in total 5 par 3s, with only one shortish par 4 (7th) this makes good scoring on the 3s the basis of a good round. The Par 5s all run with the prevailing SW wind - this is the weakest point of Hallamshire, the second 9 featuring 3 Par 5s which for a strong hitter are all reachable in 2 good shots wind behind. The course would benefit with a Par 5 on the front 9 but to be fair the front 9 Par 4s, into wind, play really long. I would recommend anyone to treat themselves to a round at Sheffield's premier course.
