Great Golf but expensive, facilities and condition in comparison with other courses is much better.

Awesome Course

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

Melbourne course

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.

Poor

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.
