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
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
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
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.
