Public course, worth a visit
Batchwood is a municipal course which offers reasonable value for money for a reasonable quality course. It's biggest let down are the bunkers which contain little or no sand in places. Usually well maintained but occasionally shows a lack of attention.

mature public course
A mature course with well established trees. Green were slightly under par, but the sun and dry are the main reasons.

Course is in very good condition. Greens are best I have seen for some while and are getting quicker.
Course remains quiet and easy to get on when you want. Value is well above average

Have a bash at Batchwood, you won't be disappointed
Batchwood is a challenging course with a good variety of holes. The course is always in good condition. If you don't make a birdie, you can at least look up and see beautiful birds of prey soaring above you. On the outskirts of St. Albans and with the Cathedral sitting proudly on a mount in the distance, Batchwood is great value for money.

Course in good condition bearing in mind time of year. Enjoyable 4 hrs spend with no hold-ups despite busy course. Friendly atmosphere.

Marek L rated 3 out of 5 - Oct 28 2017

Considering conditions - A good test
Drizzle all day with heavy rain fora couple of days before hand. Greens damp and slow. Some like the 1st tuffty. Not the best. Layout good with some interesting holes like the 7th, which must be the signature hole. Would like to visit again to assess greens again. ITs a municple with Gym attached and so facilities lacking but there is a members building. Not sure if allowed in and certainly no indictation if we were welcome. The gym entrance had all the cards and dealt with payment. No food on show just hot drinks and very few snacks. Would be better prepared next time

Bit of a let down
Greens and fairways very poor. Driving range(excuse me!) needs to upgraded. Pay attention on the back nine, you have to people, kids and dog watch as they are all over the course. Joe public and all
occupants of St.Albans seemed to wandering around at one time or another. I know it's a public right of way but it's a pain in the arse.

Excellent layout with some difficult holes balanced out by some holes where you can do well. Greens have improved in quality over the year, but are slow. The course is set up for a reasonable pace of play. Ball searches are only for the very wayward.
