What the club says: The course explores existing pine woodland on holes 1 to 5, giving the course a distinctly mature and natural feel at the start of the round, then moving into areas which have been carefully and dramatically shaped before returning to the woodland again on 14. Each hole is unique and at 7,200 yards from the back tees it will challenge the very best golfers both in terms of their playing ability as well as their strategic approach to the game, whilst the five teeing grounds of varying length will allow all golfing abilities to enjoy their round. Many of the carries and rough areas have been sown using indigenous fescue grasses and occasionally these features have been added across the approaches to greens or across fairways giving the site a distinctly links feel.

Most Helpful Review

Top notch set up. Range and warm up next to the first. Interesting set up with six holes each of 3's, 4's and 5's. Some very nice holes through the trees especially. As a design the whole course is well above averagely memorable. Greens sensibly sloped, very receptive and decently quick 9'3 on my stimp. Tee boxes very tidy, fairways lush and divot free. The rough is kept very sensible, hard to lose a ball.
A few niggles. A green keeper was oblivious to us trying to putt out 20 yards away. Turn. The. Engine. Off. The paths are extremely rough for trollies it's really a buggy set up which is a shame. Not a single par four or five which asks you a question off the tee, every hole is a driver. Bunkers have a lot of stones and variable depth of sand. Very noisy coffee machine in upstairs bar.
Overall I'm not a great fan of courses with this level of exclusivity and I'd prefer a more old fashioned design. Don't think they have any plans to take green fees, but I understand they have been generous to local clubs in giving vouchers for charities, which is commendable. Comfortably a better design than the grove, certainly top 5 in Hertfordshire - Aug 7 2017

Quality set up, play if invited!
Friend invited me to play here for 3rd time. Been a couple of years but remembered most of the holes; always a good sign. Superb condition with tour quality greens, tight beginning but opens up later. Very playable & if get a decent drive away consistently can score very well.
