Hedsor Golf Course review

Hedsor is a picturesque nine-hole course set in the beautiful mature woodlands of Buckinghamshire.

It has a unique history, as it once provided an alternative landing strip for light aircraft headed for the original airport at London's Heathrow. And you can still see traces of it on its 47 acres.

At 5,173 yards, it is one of the shortest courses we’ll review but by no means the easiest- challenging players at all levels.

The par 68 combines water hazards, sand traps, and strategically positioned trees to devastating effect with most of the holes offering up a sharp dogleg to manage.

A few years back the greens and fairways were certainly below par but times have changed and the exquisitely manicured surfaces are now a joy to play on.

For only £18 on weekends / bank holidays and £14 during the week, Hedsor is great value for money if you want a true golfing examination on a short course.

In this review I’ll outline it’s toughest, most birideable, and most attractive holes along with a couple of tips if you’re looking to give it a go.
