IMG announce that The Shire London has joined the IMG Prestige global network of world-class clubs and resorts.
The Shire London is Seve Ballesteros’ only designed golf course in the United Kingdom. Set within 220 acres of Hertfordshire countryside, The Shire London is a unique course layout consisting of three distinctive styles: links, parkland and American. Alongside the championship golf course and contemporary clubhouse facilities, The Shire London is also home to the first Seve Academy.
The Shire London has automatically upgraded to Prestige+, allowing the club to access a range of unique marketing services and opportunities which includes expert support in multiple areas such as PR campaigns, tour operator relationships, extensive media coverage through the IMG Prestige global channels and access to unique media partners.
Russell Hannah, Vice President, IMG Golf Course Services, commented: “We are delighted to welcome The Shire London to our network. The club is already recognised as one of the finest courses around London and we’re confident that any IMG Prestige member visiting will also thoroughly enjoy playing Seve Ballesteros’ only designed golf course in United Kingdom”.

This is a fantastic benefit to our members as they really enjoy playing at other quality golf clubs around the world, whether they’re travelling on business or leisure.
