I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks on the excellent golf break to Shendish which was well above the expectations of both myself and my playing partner. I am a great believer in praise where it's due, so congratulations and many thanks, best regards,
Shendish Manor Hotel & Golf Course
Shendish Manor is a fantastic golf hotel located outside Hemel Hempstead and just a few minutes from the M25 (Junction 20). The historic mansion house hotel sits at the heart of a stunning 160-acre parkland estate which includes a challenging par-70 golf course designed by Henry Cotton and Donald Steel.
The excellent Coach House Bar serves as a great 19th hole, while the traditional country house style is complemented by charming views of the surrounding estate.

The magnificent parkland estate is the perfect setting for the golf course, which was constructed in accordance with USGA principles. The woodland copses and natural undulations of the local terrain help to create a beautiful and challenging golfing landscape, and the par-70 layout is a friendly test for golfers of all standards.
Shendish Manor offers golfers a relatively gentle opening, with some birdie opportunities in the first six holes, but the closing stretch, spanning the more undulating ground, represents more of a challenge. The free-draining soil results in excellent year round conditioning, and makes Shendish Manor an outstanding option for a golf break.
The accommodation at the lovely Shendish Manor is a combination of the superbly restored original Manor House, where guests will find 18 individually designed, decorated and furnished rooms and suites, all packed with character.
In 2007, Shendish Manor unveiled a brand new wing that is home to 57 spacious and modern bedrooms which are ideal for the needs of golfers. Although the rooms are new, they retain some stylistic features in keeping with the surrounding Victorian manor house, combined with all the most welcome modern conveniences.
In the hotel's Orangery Restaurant, guests will enjoy an extensive buffet breakfast, while the lunch and dinner menus are packed with traditional bistro favourites.

We had a very pleasant golf break at Shendish Manor.
The rooms were very clean in the hotel and the staff at reception were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was really easy to find and there was ample parking.
We really enjoyed the golf course at Shendish Manor and although it was on the short side, the mature trees and undulations made it a challenge. Praise must go to the green keeping staff as the condition of the course was outstanding. The pro in the shop and the staff at the reception were also very accommodating.
Unfortunately one of our tee times was at 7:56 (we requested this) which meant we couldn’t have a sit down breakfast because it started at 8. Thankfully though bacon baps had been prepared for us and we got them at the golf reception.
The service at lunch didn’t quite live up to the rest of the weekend but the food was great and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine.
The service from Your Golf Travel was exemplary and I will be using you again in the future. Thanks for all the hard work and for arranging the early tee time as per our request. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend golf break.
We visited the Shendish Manor Hotel last week and thought the package we had bought from Your Golf Travel was excellent value for money. The hotel was really nice and our rooms were first class. Its location is good as it is really easy to find thanks to its location close to the m25. Despite being so close to the motorway the course was very peaceful and surprisingly quiet. Breakfast came in the form of a buffet and it was very nice with lots of choice on offer.
The course at Shendish Manor is great. The first seven holes are nice but nothing to write home about. As soon as you get to the eighth though, the course transforms into a different animal. Featuring undulating fairways and mature woodland, the course as a whole will be a good test of golf for any player.
Compared with other golf break packages I have purchased in the past this rates as a 9/10 and I will certainly not hesitate to recommend Your Golf Travel to friends as I will be booking my future golf holidays through you!
Just recovered from another little jolly up at the Shendish Manor Golf Club. This was our second golf break at Shendish and whilst the first 6 holes of the course are a little short the remaining 12 are absolutely fantastic, with the 8th being my favourite. The greens were playing a dream with every putt requiring an accurate read. The course is challenging for all players and whilst the first 6 are short, they are still very testing!
The clubhouse is cosy and the prices are fair. All of the staff members are very friendly and polite and the food served was really nice and great value for money.
The hotel is beautiful and the rooms are fantastic, I really cannot find fault in any aspects of the hotel. The breakfast was great as there are many choices both hot and cold; perfect preparation for a day on the golf course.
Overall I would give this venue 9 out of 10 and will definitely be returning in the future. YGT have been fantastic, this is my 2nd golf break with you and it definitely won’t be my last!
From the outset, I found the Your Golf Travel website extremely helpful and much better than others I looked at. After I had decided where and when to book, the service I received over the telephone was excellent. Once it was established that Shendish Manor could not exactly meet our ideas in respect of the timing of our rounds, you took the initiative and sorted out an arrangement that would work for us. That arrangement worked out perfectly. In fact, playing 27 holes each day, rather than 36 holes one day and 18 the next, personally suited me very well.
The golf course matched its description. As a par 70 course, with only two par 5s, it is not especially long and the first four holes are fairly gentle. But it certainly becomes more of a challenge after that. We had to endure a few showers but the course was in excellent condition nevertheless and all of the greens remained fully playable. It is definitely a place to stay out of the heavier rough where it is very easy to lose your ball, and the greens have some very tricky slopes which make putting a challenge. This course really suits the club golfer but better players would probably find it too easy.
The hotel is a very attractive old manor house with modern wings containing very comfortable rooms. I believe it has a lot of facilities, but we concentrated on the golf! The food in the restaurant at breakfast and dinner was excellent, although the choices for dinner could have been a little more varied (two of the six starters were terrines, two of the five desserts were cheesecakes). But that is a minor quibble. The service in the restaurant, in fact throughout the hotel and golf complex was absolutely first class. The mainly young staff appeared very happy in their work and were in every respect helpful and friendly, making our golf break a totally enjoyable experience.
This was my first ever golf break and I can say we enjoyed every minute of it. I would without doubt recommend Your Golf Travel to others wishing to book a similar golf break.
We thought the golf course at Shendish Manor was great. It was a good test for all of the players in our group who had varying handicaps, suggesting that this course is ideally suited for groups of golfers looking for a weekend golf break. The condition of the course was great. This was the first course I have played with USGA greens and I can see it certainly makes a difference.
The quality of the golf was not reflected in the service we got in the restaurant. Food was very slow to come to the table which cut down the amount of free time we had. The rest of the hotel was fine and I’m sure I would go on another golf break to Shendish Manor if the service in the restaurant improved.
As always the service from YGT was second to none, we had a great short golf break at Shendish Manor. The course was in great condition especially the greens which were a joy to putt on. The back nine with its tighter undulating fairways provided a good test, although with good course management fine for all abilities.
After the long uphill par 5 finishing hole a friendly face and a welcome pint can be had in the Coach House bar. The hotel itself is very comfortable, we upgraded to a Manor House room which was lovely. The food in the restaurant was delicious and good value for money. All in all it was an excellent trip, already looking forward to the next one.
I have just returned from a weekend golf break at Shendish Manor Hotel & Golf Course which was booked through Your Golf Travel and it was excellent, the price for the package with my son was a fabulous deal at £49 p/p per night. The golf course, although short on yardage, had very strategically placed bunkers and lot of tee shots were blind and after the first few holes was very picturesque.
The small but friendly bar served up one of the best pints of Guinness I have ever had and also had a small bar menu for snacks and main meals. The hotel itself was a lovely old building which was only 3 miles from the M25; they have added an additional lodge to extend the hotel without ruining any of the tradition. The staff were friendly in all the areas and I would not hesitate in recommending this golf break to anyone.
I was a little bit sceptical about our golf break to Shendish Manor Hotel & Golf Course, but should not have worried as it turned out to be an excellent weekend.
For a start we had glorious weather and that is always a bonus.
I had just come back from Portugal where I was lucky enough to have played Pine Cliffs so when I booked this break I did not have high expectations [sorry but I love golf in Portugal].
Here is my views on the break;
Hotel: Very good setting away from all noise and rooms were good quality and clean. The food was excellent and service at all times of the highest quality. The only downside was that Watford Football club had booked out most of the rooms for a function and we had nowhere to have a drink after the meal.
I would say that the following day we had more space to spread out and it did make all the difference.
That said the main reason we went was to play golf....
Golf course: Much better than I expected and after quite an easy start there were some tricky holes later on but the highlight is the greens which I would say make this course. As it is short on yardage the only defence it has on some holes [several drivable par fours] is its greens which are superb.
I would recommend this Hotel/Course to anyone looking for a weekend break in quiet surroundings [apart from railway a bottom end of course] and a course that gets better and better the further round you get.
Quite simply we will be looking at going back sometime and that is the best recommendation I can give.
The course is laid out well with good use of the land available. Numbers 1 through to 7 are a gentle introduction with a scarcity of trees. From 8 onwards the course tightens, the fairways meander through areas of large old trees which can block you out sometimes. Hook or slice a drive and the deep rough can be very punishing. Greens are good but with some wicked borrows, miss reads are common practice until you get the hang of them.
Definitely one of the better places my friends and I have played, and with YGT organising things it all went rather swimmingly.
Excellent venue and smooth booking so thank you.
