About the Club

Shortlands Golf Club has been in existence since 1894. It is a flat parkland nine-hole course with fairly tight fairways, mature trees and both grass and sand bunkers with good greens. The yardage is 5,222 yards with a Standard Scratch Score of 65 for men and 69 for ladies.

The course rewards the accurate, thoughtful golfer rather than the one who can drive the ball the furthest. To score well you need to be straight off the tee because the fairways are narrow with internal out of bounds if you stray too far off line.

The greens are well bunkered and the greens themselves are comparatively small so again accuracy is a necessity with the approach shots.

The course is always in immaculate condition, being maintained by our own team of three expert greenkeepers, all of whom play golf and all of whom understand the needs of golfers.

An irrigation system was installed some years ago covering tees, greens and fairways so the course is kept in good condition during hot weather. But it also drains exceptionally well.

We benefit from being on London gravel, which means that the course is rarely closed even in the wettest weather. In the event of heavy rain the course is usually reopened and playable within a couple of hours.

Comments from our members

Lovely place. Great function location. Beautiful grounds. Lovely people. I’m having my wedding reception here and the staff have been very helpful.

Having played and been a member of a number of the local clubs over the years, including the “bigger” clubs I recently joined Shortlands Golf Club and couldn’t have a made a better decision. The course is superbly presented and the work on the bunkers really is transforming them from good to great. Its a very friendly club without the airs and graces of some and I have been made to feel both very welcome and in need of more practice!
