What the club says: Although the Club was established in 1894 the course has been on its present site at Hammonds End since 1931 when renowned golf architects of the time Messrs Frederic G Hawtree and John Henry Taylor were engaged to design and build a challenging 18 hole course in about 150 acres of rolling Hertfordshire countryside. A characteristic of their designs is front bunkering of greens so it pays to ensure that enough club is used on approach shots. A mature parkland course with ongoing investment ensures that it is one of the best in the county.

Very good tree lined course

Played a society day, dry fairways made it a bit firey for tee shots that weren't straight but greens receptive & rewarded good shots.Plenty of variety of holes. Easy to get to off A41/A1 from central London.

Nice course & club house

Played course on a very cold day - greens in reasonable condition, some interesting pin positions. Open course that expect would play very different in the summer with leaves on trees making some fairways appear narrow.
Worth a visit - would definitel yplay again

good course but always very slow

The problem is you get a lot of hotel guests playing via package deals and its quite clear many of them are beginners. We played recently and the four ball in front had an entourage walking round with them including a baby in a buggy. There are no marshalls enforcing the pace of play and 4.5 to 5 hours is the norm.

Having work done to club house so looked a bit untidy from outside but once you enter the changing rooms and pro shop you can see it is a well run course. 13th is currently an artificial tee point due to building work which makes the easiest hole on the course even simpler. Were held up by a 4 ball who were not members using a buggy and wouldn't wave our 2 ball through and poor etiquette towards members who we found to be lovely and very pleasant people. Will be coming back at some point in the future for sure.

This was the first time I had played here in several years, it is a good layout, with various "risk and reward" holes. The most noteworthy thing though is the condition, it is fantastic with barley a blade of grass out of place; the green keepers should be very proud of their work.

First time played this course. Society day, great welcome and excellent support from staff. Course in good shape even after much heavy rain. Challenging course, need to place you ball on fairways to have best opportunities. Overall Great day.
