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.

Played for first time last Friday. Pleasant course although some holes are played blind from the tee. A couple of holes have fairways crossing around where drives would be landing. Short hole over a road is slightly odd. Greens were tricky but generally in fairly good condition. Some areas still recovering from last year's hot dry summer.

Don't Miss Out! Great course and club

Great club and nice course; many challenging holes, well kept tee boxes, fast greens with friendly members. It was Captain's Day yesterday and we were fortunate to meet many members and the captains, who were friendly and proud to tell us a bit of history of Samuel Ryder.

Proper Club

Haven't played here for a few years and is always a pleasure.
The welcome from their Pro Team was great and the course in stunning condition considering the lack of rain. Greens were so pure, not rapid but with the slopes you face they don't need to be. A couple of beers after with it buzzy in the clubhouse with friendly members and food was really good. Won't leave it anywhere near as long to return, just wish I'd played better!

Historic and beautiful!

Played last week after a lot of rain and 'The Beast from the East'.
We were amazed at how well the course was, pretty dry and the greens putted beautifully and were v quick for time of year. Apparently they have put drainage in on some greens and from our limited knowledge it certainly worked.
We did get held up on a couple of holes as they are installing a system to water bunkers, which we found hilarious as it won't be needed for a while!
Didn't eat but many were, good hospitality and beers in a friendly busy clubhouse.
Walking round seeing the paintings of Samuel Ryder, Abe Mitchell and James Braid was incredible. If you love golfing history or just a really good club then you must visit. We will return, hopefully when it stops raining!

Lovely course

Playing Verulam for the first time in December, I probably didn't see the course at its best. That said, despite the damp conditions, I loved playing here. The tees were in excellent condition, the greens were smooth and quick, and the fairways were well worth finding.

The course unusually only has three par 3's and three par 5's, and while there are lots of trees to been seen, mostly the fairways are pretty generous and allow you to go with the driver from the tee.

There were lots of lovely looking holes, my favourite was probably the scenic 14th where water comes into play down the right hand side from the tee, but the hole which sticks out is the 17th. The 17th is a short par 3 that gets played over a fairly busy back road. There's a net to stop you from hitting the cars, but still...

The clubhouse and the welcome, both there and in the pro shop, were excellent. I can also recommend the huge bowl of chips from the bar menu.

Incredibly good!

Wow, played in a society day and from start to finish everything was terrific!
The welcome from the Pro was great, who showed us into the clubhouse for our breakfast, whilst the lady in the office looked after the admin for us.
Course was incredibly dry considering a lot of rain and the greens were about as good as you can get. So quick and true they were a delight to putt on. The rest of the course is also so well looked after. The only strange thing is crossing the road but I suppose when the course was built it didn't matter with the lack of cars!!
Changing rooms great, with complementary towels waiting for you.
Then our dinner was stunning, presentation and taste. We had pork belly followed by eaton mess & cheese & biscuits. Oh & they sell Doombar!
This a place you must play and we will certainly be returning!!

As a society we have played here for many years. Played this April and the Course was in shocking condition and greens were a joke. We were not told about condition before playing and were hassled for money before playing which meant we ended up paying for more people than actually played because of some dropouts. All agreed we will never be going back here as a society, so well done verulam you have lost a society because of your appalling service.

Course really nice and their greens work carried out over winter training improve drainage on them looks amazing. Those greens are really firm considering how much rain there had been when we played.
Nice layout, easy walking course with good challenging holes, not overly long but it doesn't need length, you can see James Braid was clever in his design.
Didn't play well but all down to me not the course!
Went in for food after and they have a new chef apparently. Tried the fish finger sandwich which was incredible! Lads had a club which looked great.
Friendly staff, served by a bubbly American girl and the Bar Manager who was telling us about more changes they are doing with online booking system being put in, which will help us in future.
Would love to join if only I lived slightly closer.
We will return!
