Highly Recommended 2020

What the club says: Set in the beautiful countryside of the Chiltern Hills on the border of three counties, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, with panoramic views over all. This 6800 yard, mature tree lined, 18 hole, par 73 parkland course, is bordered on two sides by Whipsnade Wild Animal Park and is some 700 feet above sea level, yet is only gently undulating, making for easy walking.

This peaceful course is varied and interesting and the length and design add to the challenge. The course, complemented by a full size grass based driving range, chipping green and a practice putting green aids the golfer in their pursuit of a perfect round.

Good Value - Nice Course

Greens and fairways in very good condition. Well laid-out. There was one incident on 10th where the lack of sand in the bunker FR of the green (and substantial stones directly underneath) damaged a club. Both other bunkers visited on the rounds appeared OK.

Putting green good. Driving Range good. We didn't try the chipping area.

What a course

Absolutely fantastic course, long off the tee but with wide well maintained fairways. The greens are immaculate true and very fast. Add to that the very welcoming staff and fellow players, definitely worth a visit.

Good course

Unfortunately the course didn’t suit my slice, lots of trees. Definitely coming back for another go. Friendly service.

NIce condition but a bit dull

The course is in excellent conditions, but its all a bit dull. All the par fours are between 350 and 400 and its all a bit faceless.

Nice enough place but you wouldnt write home about it.

Tree lined course with punitive rough

Course in great condition, the greens were true but a little slow. Interesting that most holes had a 100 yards carry before fairway that was punished if a low drive that just stopped as soon as it touched the ground before the fairway. Friendly members.

Didn’t do it justice

A lot of the holes to some, will seem very much the same, par 4’s and 5’s with slight doglegs. However, this course has a lovely feeling of being in the countryside, and I’ve never seen so much wildlife wandering around, especially with the zoo next door! Not the friendliest welcome on arrival, but a lovely little clubhouse, good practice facilities, and a well looked after course, greens and fairways were perfect. Played dreadfully, so I will look forward to coming back and trying again!

Nice course - good value

Nice course in nice surroundings. Most holes are tree lined so very pretty, and need to be straight off the tee! Greens very quick. Good challenge and good value for money

Better Than I Remembered

Played here July , 2020 .

Pleasant , secluded hence there aren't really any views , quite heavily tree lined parkland course .Although it's quite long on the card with the shortest par 4 being 365 yards off the whites it is fairly level walking .
I played here once before a couple of years ago but this time i thought it was a better & more enjoyable course than i initially gave it credit for & i will try and return here soon .I think the first time the leaves had come off the trees but this time each hole felt more secluded with it's own identity .
Quite a lot of doglegs & the condition of everything felt good quality.
The only slightly strange thing was that most of the green complexes were nice and large but about half a dozen were smaller & a different shape ( for example , the 12th was long and narrow on an upslope ) & these greens seemed a bit out of context to the general scheme of the larger ones .
Also ,the course could maybe do with two short par 4's.

But overall worth playing & i would look forward to playing here again .

Pleasant track

A nice, pleasant track. Well maintained, albeit a little boggy under foot. We have had a lot of rain though, but improving the drainage would be a big plus. Greens were generally good despite the weather, as were the other fine playing surfaces. I think a little more signage would help speed up play, but they have been carrying out a the of raising of tree canopies which will no doubt improve speed of play also. A good test of golf with challenging doglegs, I would like to see few more water hazards, but all in all a thoroughly enjoyable course!
