Mature course kept in very good condition, with a friendly atmosphere to it. Not a long course by modern standards but it is toughened up by the undulating terrain, and many tight tree lined tees, and you will need the ability to shape the ball off them on occasions.
Excellent clubhouse with attentive staff, and the food we had was excellent. If I lived in this area I would not be looking anywhere else for a membership.
A very pleasant course, maintained in good condition and excellent VFM. Not long but undulating in parts, which requires some 'up clubbing'' Keep it straight and there's an opportunity to get a good score, but beware. Off target and you'll be rummaging for another egg.
Played here as it was billed as a Dr. Alister Mackenzie course. Excellent course, a real treat. Not a 7k yard monster but plays much longer than the 5.9k yards on the card. The greens are pretty tricky also so take your best short game. A Gem.
Played on a Sunday afternoon for 25.00....for a golf course so close to London and in such good condition this is a steal.
On paper it looks short,but the hill takes care of length on most of these and the views are brilliant.
They have allowed the trees to grow in and narrow the view you get,it adds to the experience,you need to think your way around.On our visit the greens were quick and in first class condition,a real pleasure to putt on.
We got a great welcome in the pro shop who made life easy and we also found the clubhouse friendly even though one of our group walked in with his golf shoes on...a genuine mistake...it was dealt with in a polite way rather than some of the aggression you get in other clubs.
If you are in london and fancy a quick pleasant cost effective game,this should be on your list
I played this course in April (2011) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The course was in excellent condition and the greens were very quick. I played on a wednesday at lunch time and the course was virtually empty. I got a reduced green fee, but liked the course and I will definitely play here again and would happily pay full price for a round here.
Played on a Monday and we were virtually the only people on the course.
The members must have known the greens were being aerated.
First impressions were not good the holes you can see from the club house look open and bare and the hedges and statue give the impression your teeing off in the garden of a second rate stately home.
Things improved as the round went on and there are a few interesting and nicely presented holes.
Most holes have generous fairways and few bunkers. Many holes run parallel to others so big misses may find an adjoining fairway to play from its main defence is its length I found my self hitting the driver off the tee a lot.
On many of the par fours I hit two good shots and still had to pitch on.
The short par threes and the finishing hole the only par five on the course came as a welcome change of pace.
The condition was average for a course in the price range obviously looked after but showing signs of use.
Im not desperate to return but would happily play it again.
Played this on a Bank Holiday Monday afternoon,with a member..it is however open to visitors later in the day,so check some of the on line websites for times,some bargains to be had.
The first hole is a gentle opening,not as bad as some have made out,particularly into the wind and off the whites,the second prepares you for the rest,it is up hill and just under 400 yards and played every inch of it.The views at the top of the hill is amazing.As it had been wet there was no roll and you will need wooden clubs for many of your second shots,the greens of course were a little slow,which means when there has been a sunny spell they must be like lightening.This is a tough course with some fabulous holes and well worth every penny.
The pro shop staff were very helpfull as were the bar and catering staff,a first class sausage baguette had proper sausages in it rather than the usual mass produced muck.
I would need to bring my A game to get anywhere near my handicap and possibly a buggy or electric trolly would have been advisable,first class venue,a hidden gem and a must play.
I first played at Stanmore 35 years ago and returned there with my society today. I feel if anything, the course is better now than ever before. At only par 68 some may view this as not much of a test but don't let that fool you. This is a tricky course which is in pristine condition.
There are several outstanding golf holes, namely the 2nd, 5th, 7th, 11th, 13th 15th and 17th.
I highly recommend Stanmore, it is a great course and always in tip top condition.
played as a visitor on a friday morning, was quite impressed. very quiet, & quick to get round. as a relative beginner, it was challenging with quite a few daunting tee shots and uphill 2nds to par 4's, but not enough to put me off. the relatively easy 18th ensured that i came off the course feeling good about myself & in a positive mood. i only live 2mins away & am considering membership.
A truly great course for the money to play it, great surroundings and views, you wouldnt know it was in london its so quiet, a challenging course to say the least, lots of course management needed to tackle the elevation changes on some holes. a truly great day and the food and pro shop were brilliant.
We played on one of the hottest days of the year and still found the course well presented, particularly the greens. The course is generous to those of us who are early in out golfing career and yet still challenging to the more accomplished player.
Be warned that playing on such a hot day was made testing due to some definite ups and down in the first nine, but it made the 19th hole all the more enjoyable! The pro and the facilities deserve an honourable mention as well. I will definitely play there again.
A friend and I played here on on friday morning as it was a visitors day and we both found it to be a really lovely, very well maintained course. The ground staff seem to take pride in their work that you don't find at a lot of other private courses. Together with that, the great views & the attention to detail makes it feel like your having a real treat.
The course not being that long was quite fast to get round on friday morning although the hills made it as hard on the feet as a much longer course would. I would imagine that weekends would be fairly slow due the 5 par 3's and shorter 4s.
A couple of the holes look a bit tight from the tee but there is plenty of room out there and you shouldn't get worried by some of the other reports you may have seen. The greens on the other hand we found to be really quick and tricky and i wasn't giving anything less than 18 inches after the first hole :-) On more than one occasion the ball seemed to have been played with the perfect weight only to speed up at the hole and leave us with another 3ft.
To sum up .. at the end of the round we both enquired about membership !
Recently played Stanmore and echo previous comments about it being a testing and interesting course. Despite being in late December the course was in a excellent condition with only one temporary tee.
As a member of Stanmore Golf Club for 12 years I have considerable knowledge and experience of the course.
It is not long (par 68 although planning to extend to 69 shortly) but it's far from easy, with a number of lengthy and testing par 4s.
The course is centred upon a hill (the highest point in Middlesex) so there are plenty of uphill and downhill lies. However, the real challenge is the profusion of woodland which means that many of the holes are tight, with some testing drives that must be straight or you will severely damage your card.
The signature hole, the par 4 7th, requires a tee shot over trees and extensive rough to a fairway far below.
One of the pleasures of playing Stanmore is that, despite the fact that it is in suburban London, it is well away from main roads so is as quiet as a course set in the countryside, with some terrific views.
If you hit the ball straight you'll enjoy the course immensely. If you don't, you'll need to capitalise on the 5 par 3s.
Not a long course, although 3 or 4 uphill par 4's to stretch for. Nevertheless, some very interesting holes requiring a bit of course management to avoid running up the numbers. Not easy to score well on, on your first visit. Greens generally in good condition and pretty true. Rough not too punishing, but stray beyond that and forget it...
Good for thinking golfers.
