6 reviews of Shrivenham Park Golf Course
having played most of the courses within a 10 mile radius this is by far the most difficult and interesting course around, the course was in exerlent condidtion dispite the greens being spiked and sanded it was well worth the green fees and I came off the course wanting to play it again, as I will very soon
I have played this course on a number of times. It is not a easy course to play, it makes you use all the clubs in your bag and gets you thinking. The couse is in very good shape, the greens are much better than 2 years ago. The fairways are tight, they make you have to choose the correct club, not all are for big hitters. I will look into becoming a member, this couse is going forward.I like the welcome and the food is good,over all value for money.
Since the members took over the course in 2007, it has never been better. The greens are excellent, the rough short and under control. All the bunkers are being refurbished and some re-designed. A very friendly welcome and a challanging course,I play off 8 and did not break my handicap. I understand now why they have won their scratch league again this year. Its a least 2 to 3 shots more difficult than my home course. I loved it, its tight, very pretty and a real test of golf. It makes you think about each shot, that can only improve your game. Its a golfers golf course. The 5th 6th and 7th holes are a real challange the locals call it " amen corner" if you do not score on these holes it can break your card. Lots of golf societies useing the course, as they find it a challange and very good value for money. The food is good quality and good value.
Played this the other day and have mixed feelings about it. Took advanatge of the £10 twilight green fee and I have to say this was good value, although I would begrudge paying the £16 during normal hours. The course itself is squashed together which in itself is not a problem, the biggest problem being the actual state of the course, the greens were poor, fairways and rough very similar, I just felt I was playing a course which happened to be there and not a course which was well looked after. Didnt like the 3 par 3's in a row, almost a case of having to put them there as no room, 13th was a good hole, great green, 5 and 6 were definatly challenging, but apart from these 3 nothing else interested me. I would not play the course again if I had had over options but if the course was properly looked after then I would return to see if it has improved. What doesnt help is that I am 24 handicapper so when you play bad as well it all adds up to a pretty depressing afternoon
I have played this course many times over the years , i played it very recently and was sad to see the greens in a poor condition, also the course management have left the rough very long, 6-8 inches which makes for a lot of golfers looking for a lot of lost balls, at its best it is a delightfull 18 hole par 69 course,with a friendly little clubhouse, and represents great value for money especially for those on a limited budget and high handicap.I just wish they would cut the rough a bit shorter and do something for the greens.
Shrivenham offers great value for money golf. The greens are usually in very good condition even if not particularly demanding. The course is very tight with a few of the holes crossing or very adjacent to other fairways. Water only really comes into play on two holes, the fifth a long par 5 (where is that flag) which is played up and over a hill to a small green and the the sixth on the way back. The seventh hole is played down an avenue of trees if you slice or hook stick to the irons! The other hole of note is the long thirteenth played almost down a narrow valley befor a sharp dogleg to the right, if you slce its too far to then to make use of it! Shrivenham, is a good mature course with etablished trees so don't expect free relief from poor shots. Overall, except when busy a very enjoyable course to play
