I played Muswell Hill in a golf society in May. I thought the course was fantastic and the greens played really well. The food was good and the bar staff friendly. We have already booked for next year due to demand from the players in our Society.
The course is rather untidy, average greens and very poor greenside bunkers. In my view its worth £10 to £15 per round but they charge £35. Food is expensive - a slow service.
I have played Muswell Hill Golf Club a couple of times over this summer. I found the course tight but fair. The greens were the best I have played on this year by far. The course presentation is first class and the staff very friendly. Good value at £35. If you want a good test of golf on a beautiful course this is well worth a visit.
Good course, tight in places, good greens and well maintained. Well worth a visit.
I played a round of golf on Thursday afternoon with another gentleman who had also joined. The whole process was very easy, and I was made to feel welcome. I was pleased with the condition and level of difficulty of the course, and more pleased that I played under my handicap! I am aiming to play a couple of times a week, as I can sometimes leave work early and get to the course around 4 or 4.30.
I've thoroughly enjoyed the May membership scheme. I've managed to play a few times and have also attended a couple of the clinics run by David Wilton. These I found particularly valuable. It is my intention to sign up for full membership after May.
I have played in courses all over London and south east and all though still count myself as useless at 22 handicap, I persevere. Muswell Hill golf course is one of the best, if not the best I have played in London, the staff are very friendly and professional and the members are also very friendly. I have found that all though still maintaining a very high standard, the club has not got the stuffiness associated with private golf clubs. I am immensely enjoying my game time and will be seriously thinking of extending to full membership when May is over.
I always play here when I am in London as it is a great golf course and close to town. It is a good test and the members are friendly. While the greens may be tricky, they are always true, a bit like Augusta! The course may not have views like we do in Scotland, but it feels nice and secluded and you wouldnt know you were in London. The course has recently undergone some serious improvements, clearing out some undergrowth and building around half a dozen new tees. The layout has a good mix of par 3s and 5s, rewards good golf and is a fair test. It was beautifully presented last week and I am looking forward to visiting again over the summer.
Some narrow and challenging holes, but mostly quite an easy and short course. Par 5s all reachable in 2 by even average hitters. Nice 3rd hole, but I found some other holes quite dull. Unfortunately the soil is clay-based so drainage is an issue almost everywhere. We also experienced slow play, i.e. a 4-ball in front of us who would not let us through even though they were a couple of holes behind the group in front of them. It's not really a bad course, but it's not one I'd return to.
A rather scuffy course with some very poor tees, and poor bunkers. The greens were good but the approaches & surrounds very average. The club seems to have a real problem with slow play at weekends.
Really nice course
A real find and easy to get to from mid-town (subway and three minute cab ride).Challenging course with really great greens - makes a change to find fast and true putting surface. The food was excellent. We're going to make this our London Golf Club when visiting from the USA.
A good but tight and v difficult old parkland course. Gets more of the wind up on the north london hills than you might think! Lovely greens - quite subtle and well looked after by staff and members (very few pitchmarks). On the difficulty bit, it's a number of factors: a/ plays a lot longer than the yardage since there are a few forced lay ups in front of burns, b/ tight fairways, c/ hard greens to hit... A real 'course management' challenge! (Note that it is diff to get on at weekend. Also look out for the old photos of Vardon et al playing the course in the clubhouse.)
Green Fees went up from £20.00 to £32.00 with effect from 1st April - the course isn't good enough to command this price. The rock hard greens were clearly not watered (sufficiently or not at all) making pitching a lottery - unless you are good enough to get backspin you had to pitch before the green and the faiway was too hard and uneven to get a true bounce. It's OK for a winter knockabout but play High Barnet instead - they know how to keep a course fair.
We were welcomed to play as visitors. The proshop staff and the members we spoke to were extremely friendly. This is not a pretentious club. The course is lovely, some interesting holes, especially on the backnine. The greens are very true.
I have heard good things about this course via word-of-mouth and understood that they welcomed visitors at weekends. Upon trying to book for this Saturday, however, I was told that visitors are only welcome after 2pm. Presumably, therefore, as they expect visitors to play in the dark, miners' helmets and luminous balls can be purchased in the pro shop!
