Fantastic Course

Great set up and the course was in amazing condition. The course was challenging but fair and the greens were so different every hole.

Palmerston - Very Good

I've played many good parkland courses over the years, and the Palmerston is right up there with them.

Played late afternoon on a perfect early June day so got excellent visual conditions. Conditions were excellent all around (admittedly off the back of some of the best growing weather in ages, but they'd made the most of it). Greens were a little slow by the end, as you would expect from Poa Anna grass, but run true.

The design is good. No water to content with. Plenty of well shaped and positioned bunkers, which fit sympathetically with the overall layout. All holes play in isolation from each other, and while none are stand out none are the same and all are good in of themselves. What makes the course is the landscape, which is stunning. Great changes in elevation and combinations of tight woodlands with varied mature trees and just enough open space to make you feel comfortable.

Get it on a twilight on a good day and it's well worth the money.

Lovely setting

First time I?d played this course. Lovely setting and some really interesting holes including plenty of water. The condition of the course - a few greens wasn?t what I?d expect for a top quality track. Overall, very enjoyable, wide fairways and quite forgiving at the time of my visit - so possible to score well whilst providing a test for better players.

Was entertained here and hence had a freebie round. The course is in beautiful surroundings with water playing a part on 4 holes. Greens were superfast. Course was in fantastic condition.

Stunning Woodland

Played the Palmerston in testing conditions. Course was in good condition. Tees, fairways and rough were in well manicured condition. Greens were slightly slow but ran fairly true. Bunkers were well raked and tidy. A bit of cut grass lying about which looked a bit shabby but nonetheless a stunning course, and a fantastic layout. Challenging course.

Fantastic Course, condition was top notch, i found some pin locations was a bit tough but i know they just hosted the Faldo series the same week, every hole is different and really eye catching set in beautiful woodlands with some stunning trees and well manicured fairways. the practice facilities are second to none, my favourite course i have played in Hertfordshire so far

Like all courses at the moment the fairways are dry but the greens are excellent and the bunkers have been improved with having more sand added to them.

not many better in hertfordhsire

Amazing to see Brocket getting back to its best after the issues over the past couple of years clear to see that they have learnt from there mistakes.
Played the Palmerston which was the best i ve seen it in years along with the Academy which was as good as it has been since i was a member as a junior many years ago.
The whole place once again looked in great condition and well looked after. Was like playing millionaires golf. Please brocket keep up the good work when this place is good there is nothing better in the area.
If i had the money i would join in an instance
