What the club says: This 18 hole course is set in 150 acres of beautiful rolling Hertfordshire countryside and is perfect for golfers who enjoy a challenge and like to think their way round a course. The par 71, 6,237 yard layout has been subject to a large investment of time and effort over the last couple of years. A challenging course with immaculate greens and fairways awaits golfers visiting the Manor of Groves Country Manor Hotel, Golf and Country Club. Located close to the Hertfordshire/Essex border.

Green is the grass of home

Good course, some fairly average holes (par 3 1st hole for instance should be scrapped or shortened slightly and have water / bunkers surrounding the green) but there are some stunning holes and a good challenge.

Nice level course

Course in fine condition. Challenging tee shots, but wide fairways, if you can reach them.
Greens and tee boxes in very good condition, and the fairways are well maintained.

Good course, very friendly staff. Some lovely holes on front 9. Back 9 not as interesting though. A few very long holes. Greens very tough

Good course post lockdown

Good course and really decent twilight value for money. Course in decent shape. Greens not too bad. One thing that does need some work are the tee boxes. Sometimes difficult to get a flat stance.

Excellent

Superb course but very tricky. Every hole has something different to deal with . Fairly flat course . Unfortunately the weather killed our game today . Heavy rain and storms

Beautiful hot and sunny summer round in the heart of Essex. Lovely woodland course hidden from mainstream golfers. Long drawn out back 9 aren't too complicated and a little bit of a slog

Parkland course with hotel

Played several times over years and improves all the time. Set as a loop of 9 quite compact holes around woodland and the hotel grounds before expanding at the start and end in wide fairways parkland. Some exceptionally long holes including a monster 18th 600 yarder, some good par 3?s including 10th over pond, and the opening hole also.
Friendly staff and small pro shop, putting green but sadly no range. To be considered.

Cracking Middle

It's hard to truly evaluate the course as only 12 holes were open & the fairways hadn't been mown, but after 2 weeks of almost constant rain, that's not unusual at the moment.
The greens & bunkers were in fantastic condition though.
From what I saw the course got a bit samey around 13 to 16, but holes 8 to 12 were superb. They really made you think with some great layouts around water, trees & sand.
The pro was great & the hotel was very good.
I definitely want to return in the summer & see the course at it's best as I think it will be an excellent challenge of golf.

Nice course, however the tees were not good as many were uneven which made it difficult to find a flat stance. Greens good. Some interesting holes that required a bit of thought. We played on a 2 4 1 so was good value for money. One of them courses you would like to play again as you would have learnt a lot from your first visit.

Nicely designed course. Worth a visit

Played this in good weather under a 2 for 1 deal, so great value. Good VFM breakfast at the club house beforehand and played behind a fairly large society that had stayed at the hotel overnight with positive feedback. Practice facilities were basic, but pace of play once we got going was good considering the large group in front of us. Course was challenging, but fair and makes you think - you certainly don't need your driver out on every tee. The greens were in great condition, very true and often difficult to read, the rough was penal but fair and the bunkers I visited were excellent. I enjoyed my first visit, but thought some of the holes needed a bit of TLC - especially the tee boxes which were uneven, messy and often difficult to push a tee into. Overall though, I would play again and recommend a visit. Can't comment on post round food as the society in front of us seemed to have cleared the menu, but the staff were friendly and the refreshing ale on the patio by the 18th green was very enjoyable!

A nice course

This was excellent value for only £15 per person, course was in fair condition and some of the short par fours were really quite tricky. Had clearly done work on tee boxes but some of them were still not level which is a bit strange.

Played as a one-off joining other friends from outside the area. Course difficult for first timers but would return and play again. Fairway grass a bit long in places but greens fast and true. Very good value.
