Great course would play again

Great Hospitality Nice Challenging course More signage needed between holes as you can get lost and play the 8th instead of the 3rd The Greens could be in a better condition Cart ran out of fuel.

But overall great course to play..

Thanks

Nice open course

Nice course well kept. Couple of the greens a bit mossy but all good. Feels like a long course being par74. Staff and members extremely friendly.

Pleasant course in the Hertfordshire countryside

Nice course, a little out of the way near the village of Barkway. Long course with good greens but fairly long grass on the fairways. Mostly very friendly but did come across a couple of arrogant bullies in buggies. Cheapest green fees I have come across

Barkway is a lovely course seemingly in the middle of nowhere. The course itself, although long, has some lovely holes however the greens were not in good condition at all. Very good value for money.

Nice course

Long course, good fun, plenty of variety, challenging - at my level (22 hcp). Sometimes a bit confusing which green your heading for, but, nicely laid out, very wide T areas, greens generally quite good, but maybe still suffering from the long hot summer.Hope t be back soon

Some challenging holes

The course has matured over the years into a good test of any golfer's ability to hit the ball straight and long. Great value for money, friendly staff and members and always a joy to visit.

Good greens, nice course in lovely countrside

Barkway has always had good greens and this time was no exception. It's a challenging course physically because it's over 6600 yards off the yellows. We played on a sunny day which showed off the countryside to its best effect. Would definitely play there again.
