What the club says: The course, which is kept in excellent condition and open all year round (weather permitting), has a well-deserved reputation for being suitable for all categories of golfers and 'The Common' as stated by Ken Brown, is one of the most friendly Golf Clubs in Hertfordshire. Hertfordshire County Scratch and Tigers matches are regularly played here as well as a full programme of Mens, Seniors, Ladies, Juniors and Mixed Competitions.

Harpenden Common golf course has eleven holes set on the Common and a further seven holes which were designed by Ken Brown in 1996. As you will see from the course planner, the first is a par 4. This runs past the clubhouse parallel to the 18th. As you move round the course each hole has its own character.

Good flat course. No long but quite narrow in places. Very good bunkers. Strange to have two consecutive par 3 's in the middle of the round. Finishes on a par 3 right in front of the club house for those who like applause or ribaldry. Definitely one to revisit.

Short and tight, but some interesting holes

A short course and definitely one you have to think your way around. Greens were true and in great condition, a definite highlight of the course.

Nice course. Older 1st half and tighter

Quite short from Whites. Grees nice and smooth and fast. Putting green a good indictation of pace. Interesting feature on 3rd....cricket square and boundaries right across fairway at @ 250yrd!!!! Some issues with edge of fairways but rough is rough if you stray too far but not too bad.

Despite heavy rain the day before, the course was in good condition. The greens were a little long and the surface uneven making putting difficult. Having said that a very enjoyable round.
