Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    As a new member of the club I was really happy to join the fun last Sunday. People were very friendly and made me feel at home.
    Debbie, who organised the soirée made sure everything ran smoothly and we all had what we wanted.
    Dinner was delicious and the DJ played all the old party favourites so we danced all night. I look forward to more of the same.

    This was a real treat. The afternoon tea (or - as it's a gold club, should that be "tee"??!) was very generous with some favourite classics and some modern additions to liven up the palate.
    The china was traditional and suited the classic, decor in the private room of what is England's oldest golf club.
    The service was impeccable, nothing was too much trouble and it made for a very nice afternoon and a very happy birthday memory.

    The golf course is amazing. For a course so close to London it is outstanding. The gorse and heather bushes are a highlight throughout the course. The course is also in immaculate condition all year round. The clubhouse is a nice location to have a dinner or just to have a drink. The people there are really pleasant as well.

    A mate saw an offer on Group On, full english 18 holes 4 players £39. So £10 each. Why not.

    Club house is small & staff are minimal. Lady was very helpful and still looked after us even though she was on her own. Basic breakfast but suitable.

    Course is ideal for a beginner or a confidence booster. Greens were fantastic, round of applause for the green keepers. 👏

    When the course is wet it's really not great but when it dry do not miss it.

    Considering using this course as a Monday roll up for our society get together

    Rented a bay for 2 hours between 8 of us, it was very cheap and much more affordable vs couple booking at peak time.

    Staff and facilities were great, however we were assigned a bay with a faded backdrop, the tee box was not the best and the quality of the golf clubs was very sub-par (pun intended), now most non-golfers would be ok with the selected, but given that the website shouts about the best clubs they were very worn. Understand that many others would have used the clubs before me, but the grips were knackered, clubs themselves felt cheap and only recognisable club was the Driver (Taylormade Sim 2)

    Other than that, it was an overall good experience, drinks were bought over quickly and the option to put all costs onto a tab then split at the end made life easier

    The negative...
    - Tee boxes aren't in great condition.
    - Fairway grass is too long. Some of it feels like you are in light rough.
    - Greens are in bad condition and are unrealistically slow.
    - The clientele don't seem to care about repairing pitchmarks
    - Bunkers are just not maintained properly.

    The positive...
    - Price is reasonable
    - Some very tight and challenging holes for any level of player
    - Superb course design
    - No stuffy dress code
    - Open to all

    Summary...
    I generally play at private clubs and if you are used to courses in very good condition you will be disappointed. However, this is a low priced, municipal course and expectations should be set accordingly. This is a fabulous facility for the beginner, high handicapper or anyone returning to the game after a long break. It's worth having a look if you're a better player, the challenging layout might just tempt you back. It has its place in the world... it's open, accessible, cheap and will attract non-golfers and beginners as well as more regular golfers. Despite the condition, I actually enjoyed my round and the challenge. I'll definitely be back as I have a son who has just taken up the game and for this it is perfect.
    I couldn't help thinking that with just a bit more maintenance and management this course could be one of the best.... but then again, it wouldn't serve the community as it does today.

    Wedding reception for family and friends on Saturday 24thJuly. Excellent service in understanding our needs and meeting our expectations. Well staffed throughout, excellent waiting staff, and serving staff. Food excellent. Everyone's needs met.
    Efficient bar staff, and service with a smile.
    Would not hesitate in recommending this venue to others.
    Large car park a big plus.
    Balcony overlooking the golf course provides an excellent vista, and a great outdoor space to enjoy the sun and socialize into the evening.
    Hendon golf club are professional in their approach, listen to your requirements, and exceed your expectations.

    A very average course I am afraid. There are no spectacular holes and most holes are a mirror image of the one before.

    The fairways are in okay condition, as are the tees and the greens - there is just nothing to get exited about.

    The biggest issue is the spacing between tee-offs and no consideration taken between a 3 ball, a 1 ball and a 2 ball + buggies - as we found out.

    Tee offs are spaced 4 minutes apart - that's it. Whether you are on your own, or as part of a 3 ball (as we were) - you still only get 4 minutes. Any golfer will know that this will cause traffic and bunching up - irrespective of how good you are.

    All-in-all I can't recommend this course, as I won't be playing here again. There are just so many other (better) courses in the surrounding area.

    I was a total beginner to golf and a little nervous , but Sean the Professional put me at ease and made the lessons fun and well structured . After my course of lessons I am now confident enough to play on the course .

    Tim did an incredible job selecting a first rate course outside London, UK, The Grove, which exceeded our expectations for winter golf! The course was in fine condition, the staff helpful and the sausage rolls at the turn were, as Tim promised, the best in London. Yum! 🤤 Tim could not have been any more attentive in working with my son to plan the outing and then hosting us at the course, providing quality rental clubs and shoes, and making sure we had access to the fine men’s clubhouse afterward. He even gave us a ride to the train station on the way home! What a kind gentleman. He made our Father-Son golf experience special. Would not hesitate to use him again or recommend Tim! Fore!🏌️⛳️😊

    The new Chef has greatly improved the menu and standard of food - as well as a good value for money menu, specials of the day, tasty pizza's, a hot savoury snack counter, cakes, and well priced coffees with biscuits on the side. I can be quite particular. The Chef was very accommodating, made suggestions, and the meal was really good, he even came out to check everything was ok. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the chef is a great asset to the team. On top of that are the beautiful views from the club house and patio area. We will definitely be returning - Soon!!

    Jon Fitzpatrick is the legend. Within one double lesson he showed my real potential by adding 30 yards to my shots as well as helping my lower my handicap by 5 in the next round of golf that I played. I have had 30 + lessons with few teachers at other academies up to now - but at David Bailey Golf Academy I felt real change each time and left excited to work on that technique and come back. I wasn’t made to sweat it out and swing 200 shots in a lesson, Jon was really attentive, helping me understand the feeling of a golf swing before making me hit the ball and his methods really worked. When I hit the ball, it felt good and it certainly looked good. I highly recommend BDGA. They have the latest clubs so you don’t need to bring your own and it’s 1min walk from bank station.
    Super easy, loved it and will keep going!
    Thank you Jon!
