Summary:

Many fine mansions have graced the present site of Brookmans Park Golf Club since the early 1600s. The present clubhouse, which is of Tudor origin, was formerly the stables of a house destroyed by fire in 1891. Naturally many changes have taken place since then and today members and visitors alike enjoy first class facilities and are assured a warm and friendly welcome. The course has a reputation for testing the good player without embarassing the mid to high handicapper. The first 9 holes of the 6,473 yard par 71 woodland course take you around the outer perimeter of the course. Out of bounds plays a distinctive feature of all the holes from the 3rd around to the 9th. The 3rd is a feature hole, with magnificent views from the back tees over a gentle valley and the spire of St Albans cathedral visible on a clear summer evening, leads players to a challenging multi-tiered green. The 5th has the infamous Mirror pond ready to trap only the longest of drives or errant second shots. The second 9 holes starts with an inviting downhill drive between mature oak tress towards the lakeside green and the 11th is another signature hole. With mostly water between tee and green, trees behind the back of the 11th green and deceptively deep bunkers protect a green that has rewarded some with a memorable hole-in-one. The last 3 holes, 16th, 17th and 18th are recognised by many of the clubs’ players as one of the toughest finishing stretches in the area. The 18th requires a long, straight drive to the bottom of a gentle valley to set up a challenging uphill, mid iron shot to a green protected by a well placed cross bunker and step sided greenside bunkers. Par on the 18th is an excellent way to complete a round of golf on one of Hertfordshire’s finest courses. Visitors are always welcome at Brookmans Park Golf Club, either as a casual green fee, a society, part of a corporate event or taking part in one of our Open Competitions.

Beautifully maintained tree lined course with hints of Brocket Hall about it. Five par 5's and five par 3's also makes it different from other courses. The fairways and greens were in great condition too. However, whilst the fairways are wide, dont be fooled, it is still a huge test and I would recommend a visit to anyone. Friendly staff and good food as well!

A private course, so need a member to sign you in @ £20. Excellent course, very well maintained with immaculate greens. Generous fairways but accuracy is a must for a decent score. Not too long, and members etiquette is highly rated. No waiting...3 ball got around in 3 n half hours, at a nice steady pace. Well worth the green fee. 19th hole excellent, good food available and reasonably priced.
