Hit and miss
Course is in good condition for this time of year. Girl in club shop very friendly.the round for us was ruined by group behind who hit balls whilst we were still in range of them. Called the ranger telling them we were going too slow (bear in mind it recommends 4hours 10 mins and we completed in 4hours dead) said ranger came and had a go at us for slow play ruining round when the group behind were still at a reasonable distance behind us. Also were told off as there was no one in front of us even tho when we teed off the group in front reed off 30 minutes prior to us.
It was first time playing the course and once I got past the grumpy person on reception it was great. I have no handicap so that will indicate how much I’ve played but whilst it was challenging at times you get rewarded for a good shot with fairways feeding into greens nicely.
Some groups ahead were slow meaning we had a backlog at the 10th but that meant I played the back 9 with a nice bloke called Dirk who helped me understand where exactly the greens were as there were no markers pointing which direction to go in - adding line markers to show where the greens are would definitely help.
Definitely a course I will go back too often in 2020.
Played Sunday afternoon at 13.20 hrs using hotdeals - the course was well maintained and greens very good for this time of the year. Got round in just under four hours as no one else we saw on the round. Bunkers well maintained also (found a few!).
Overall for a public course and only £14 for a round, I cannot fault this course. My friend who does not like venturing far was more than happy to come and play here for the value and the course. Testiment itself.
Expecting a little more
Staff and other golfer no problem. Course wasnt in great nick, greens were a lottery as to where your ball would actually finish up. Wouldn't be in a rush to return unless there was some money spent on what seemed like a very tired and unloved course
Great course layout, greens and course conditions better then when I played last in June. Pace of play a little slow as there's a lot of beginner golfers playing a tough course.
Would of been nice to see a Marshall just having a word or two to keep course moving a bit quicker.
Very good value, greens in very good condition
The low price belies the value from playing this, for a senior, challenging course.
Greens in very good condition
Take note, no toilets on course (except clubhouse)
First time playing this course and thought it was quite good.
Greens were soft but in good condition. Rough wasn't too rough.
Amazing value @ just £12 for a sunday afternoon tee off in summer.
Had to queue to tee off but still got round in 4 hours so it was a good pace.
Challenging without being too difficult for very average golfer. Club house has a playback of approach to last hole which is a great feature
First time suffered the rough. However I should have been on the fairway.
A interesting coarse with plenty of challenging holes , greens and fairways in good condition.
Need to use your coarse management with this one !
Played as a two ball as part of a hot deal. When we arrived another two ball had the same tee time as us . Not sure why ..?
Course very fair . Greens decent and pretty true. Bunkers a bit stony..otherwise Really enjoyed it. Very few other golfers on course when teed off . Sloping fairways bit of a test off the tee. Will play again particularly if as cheap again . Good bar / 19th.

Very pretty reasonably well maintained course in Hertfordshire.
This course can be as easy or hard as you want to make it,
with a variety of challenging holes to test you accuracy and patience.
This course will bite the careless! (Beware the 9th)
Great for all levels, testing for the newbee.
The finishing hole has cameras over the green so you can see yourselves from the very good bar and restaurant about 20 mins after you finish your round.
Buggies and Trolleys available.
course condition ....8/10
VFM ......................10/10 (£20 each peak time weekend)
We hired a buggy costing £27 (a bit expensive) which included accurate GPS. Greens running true, nice even pace all they way round. Fairways weren’t in very good condition, although course was playing pick & place. Got round in 3 hours 30 minutes (2 ball, with buggy)
