What the club says: Our challenging par 72 course was designed by James Braid and we are now well into our second century as a thriving members’ club situated in the heart of historic St Albans, known as Verulamium in Roman times.

We take great pride both in the year round condition of our course and also in the pace and subtlety of our greens, arguably the finest in Hertfordshire. You can always be assured of a challenging but fair test.

Interesting, tight course, good condition but a little noisy

An interesting but tricky course with a good variety of holes and nice elevation changes. Condition was good, excellent bunkers and greens. The putting surfaces were very quick and had a lot of contours to make you think. The first two holes are notable for the railway line rather than anything else but after that it got more interesting, the subtle dog legs are nice and out of bounds a risk on lots of holes which puts the pressure on tee shots and approach shots. Most holes are pretty tight as well, little margin for error and if you are off the fairway there is only a small amount of rough before bushes and trees.
The 3rd hole had lovely views of Sopwell House and the 11th has a great view of St Albans Abbey in the distance. The 14th was my favourite hole, a attractive curve uphill to the left with the river Ver on the right. I also enjoyed the 17th, it may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's the only short par 3 on the course so it felt like a welcome relief to have an easier one.
The biggest negative for me was the noise from the A414 road. I thought the trains going past would be the bigger distraction but actually they are not too frequent and are only really noticeable from certain parts of the course. But the loud hum of road traffic is pretty constant, especially on holes 3 - 9, and I think this would put me off joining as a member even though it's the closest course to where I live.
There are good practice facilities although you have to cross the 11th fairway to get to the main practice ground and there was a little confusion as to whether or not non members were allowed to use this.
I would like to return again some day as a visitor, however, at £58 for a weekend round it's a little steep (I think in some ways you are paying for the historic Ryder cup connection), so will try to play mid-week next time.

Played this course yesterday on a lovely afternoon. Yummy bacon roll and a coffee in nice setting, served with a smile before heading off onto the course. Played well on a well presented course with tricky pin positions on a lot of holes requiring you to think of the curving putt, shall I tap it or shall I hit it firmly only to see it roll three feet past for an equally tricky return?! On the whole the course was in excellent condition and well maintained. I shall return!

No pick and place

1st course I've played since winter where you play the ball as it lies- no muddy balls- greens are sanded but had been done very well so minimal impact on putting

Excellent!

We played the weekday 4-ball experience package - Range balls (grass area), Full English, Buggies/GPS Trolleys, green fee & 2-course lunch + 8pints/2Bottels of wine for ?87 each. Best value for money, the food was great, the course plays great and Richard is a fantastic host. All in all, the best pre-wedding day package I could've asked for.

My local course

Although I am a member elsewhere I have played here quite a few times with friends who are members. The greens are faster than they look and have plenty of undulations. On the first three holes the greens slope away from your approach so you need to land it short and run it on. The fourth tee is right behind the third green! The fourth fairway crosses the 9th. The fifth and sixth are dog legs so playing with a member is helpful. On the 16th tee you face a huge bank onto a concave fairway.17th is a pitching wedge over the road. 18th is a big par 5 especially into the wind. Not my favourite course but good to play other courses for a change, and the company is always first class.

Living on its Sam Ryder history

Played here approximately 10 times with member friends. Apart from the 14th by the cress beds and the massive 18th, not a special course. Two fairways cross!! and a pitching wedge par three over the public road. Well kept but not special. There are so many better courses in the area.
