What the club says: Brocket Hall Golf Club is home to the par 73 Palmerston Course, designed by the renowned architect Donald Steel which wends its way through mature woodland and the Melbourne Course, designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark which follows the natural undulations and contours of the 18th Century parkland.
Some nice and holes and strange holes, very indifferent green speeds. Nice touch finishing over the water on 18.
(Round played: Sep 2017 - Score: 95 Handicap: 11.2)
Played the Melbourne for a change, not played it in a long while. Friendly starter, nice practise area convenient for the first. Course is a good test, several excellent par 4's, water in play 5 times. Never liked the first hole, apart from that it's the strongest Clark/Alliss layout I know of. Both courses deserve to be in the top 10 in Hertfordshire if we are just talking about design.
Sadly, brocket is better known these days for various financial shenanigans, and it's now very obvious in the condition of the course. The quoted green fees are extremely steep, which is fine but I have to judge what is on offer against that price. Fairways are extremely bare after a dry few weeks. Greens pretty good, 8 on the stimp, but you'd expect quicker for the price. Several tees, not to mention the grass practise area, are completely brown, which is bizarre as they have sprinklers, which are obviously not operational. Brocket has to work out how to get some of the several billion gallons of water from the lake onto the course, it really can't be that hard.
Not surprisingly, the course was completely empty. At the moment, it compares very poorly to other courses in the area that ask for rather less money. The academy should be a great selling point, but I visited letchworths a few weeks ago and it is considerably better.
Over rated on here by a lot, needs to get its act together.
Played the Melbourne course. Pro shop not very helpful or at all enthusiastic about welcoming visitors.
And for the price of the green fees the least I would expect is the bunkers to be raked over every morning. Some of them looked untouched for days. This venue and courses deserve much better maintenance, and service than it is getting at present.
played both the Melbourne and the Palmerston on consecutive days and they are in excellent condition, with both having there own challenges and being different courses in many ways.
(Round played: Jun 2017 - Score: 99 Handicap: 21.7)
We were lucky to be able to play both the Palmerston and the Melbourne. Both courses were in excellent condition and proved a test for the whole group. A warm welcome and excellent facilities greeted us on our arrival. The academy was excellent allowing a good warm up before our rounds. Would play again.

Very good considering the time of year and recent weather.
(Round played: Feb 2016 - Score: 87 Handicap: 11.7)
Course was in good condition given the time of year and the recent wet weather. It is clearly not played on very often as it appears to be shut for most of the week, but open at the weekend. We had to carry which wasn't a problem and the course as clearly been set up to manage the winter use i.e. pins tight to front of the green on every hole, mats on most par 3. The course played fair and tight, and my dad and I had a great round. The holes are varied and have some interesting elevation changes. It helped that I had played here before as there are a number of blind tee shots. The best hole for me was the 4th. A long par 4 dogleg left, straight downhill and then back up to a large green. The course was empty and we were only 2 of 7 people to use the halfway hut! I actually won this round no Facebook, but I do not think I would pay the normal green fee of £100 odd to be honest. Clubhouse was expensive, and I found it a bit off that the visitors section didn't have any heating! The practice facilities were the best I have ever used. Overall, a great day and would recommend to anyone.
