What the club says: Berkhamsted Golf Club is ranked in the top 100 golf courses in the country. Established in 1890, it enjoys the most beautiful setting amongst woodlands, heather and gorse and has the unusual characteristic of having no sand bunkers. The course drains very well and is an excellent all year round course.
The club hosts annually one of the top amateur events that qualifies for World Ranking Points, an event which has seen names such as Sandy Lyle, Luke Donald, Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood, Tom Lewis and many others coming through the circuit on their way to greater things.

A very challenging course.
It requires accuracy as once you are off the fairway you are in deep trouble.

Eamonn C rated 2 out of 5 - Feb 17 2018

Tricky course
The lack of bunkers is more than offset by the rough ground slightly off the fairways and around the greens. Our group of 18 had a 40 point score and three 36 point scores so perhaps others would see the course differently!

Hidden Gem and no bunkers
Lovely course with very few flat lies. Forgiving in width of fairways but stray and there are plenty of gorse bushes to punish you. Green for January were fast and true though faster this morning due to the frost. Some reasonably long carries off the tee, especially the 8th and 9th which also plays across a road. Great course, would very much love to visit again someday. I must admit that it was free today as buddy won a 4-ball in raffle!!

Fantastic course and I would definitely recommend
A challenging course where laying up is in important but greens and fairways are in great condition.

Berkhamsted is deservedly one of the best courses in Hertfordshire. Despite having no bunkers as a unique feature, it is not an easy course. Gorse and heather are also a great feature that differentiate the course from others in the county.

Course in good condition. Take care if you go off the fairway because it's easy to lose your ball.

Douglas R rated 5 out of 5 - Apr 26 2017

Fantastic course with some really tricky holes. Lot like a lynx course the way its set up. Lots of coarse bushes, thick rough at points, some holes play really long into the wind. A good test for any evel golfer. If you are straight off the tee you will score well. Greens are really receptive and in pristine condition. If you havent played it before my top tip would be to buy a coarse guide. I played 36 holes here and having never played there before I played the afternoon 18 completly different to how I played the morning 18 which reflected in my score, 23 pts morning, 33 in afternoon with 2 blobs....

Great heathland course. Picturesque and quiet except for birds singing. No sand bunkers but the heather, gorse and banks protecting the greens offer an equivalent challenge. Didn't play well but still thoroughly enjoyed my round and am looking forward to returning to do the course justice. Club house is well situated for views and with a good atmosphere and changing facilities.

A good course in great condition at the time of year. I can imagine that the course will be fantastic in the summer. All the holes on the course were structured well and some strategic shots were required. A friendly atmosphere also in the clubhouse.

The course was in good condition, the greens look good, but are a fraction slow for such a quality course. The back tees make the course a tough challenge, with some good carries to the fairway. The holes look tight, but aren't really (it's an optical illusion). There are good shaped holes which mean that position is key on certain holes. There are no bunkers, and the course doesn't need them. The practice facilities are excellent, the clubhouse is good and there was plenty of quality food.

Course in good condition, just started dressing some greens and grass left to protect so a little slow, but otherwise lovely course.
