Golf in Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire is located just above London. The county derives its name from a hart (stag) and a ford (shallow place where a river or stream may be crossed by wading). Hertfordshire is known to be a very pretty county and with it's lovely parkland golf courses a golf break to Hertfordshire will not disappoint. Bushey Hall Golf Club, founded in 1889, is the oldest golf club in Hertfordshire.

Golf in Hertfordshire
Hertfordshire provides a nice mix for golfers between historic golf courses and also new developments like The Grove, which hosted the 2006 World Golf Championships. The best golf courses in Hertfordshire are Ashridge Golf Club, The Grove Golf Club, Hadley Wood Golf Club, The Centurion Club and The Shire London Golf Club, the only course in the UK designed by Seve Ballesteros. The highest density of good golf courses can be found around Watford, making that city a good place to stay. When in Hertfordshire, explore famous sites such as St Albans Cathedral, Hatfield House, Knebworth House, or capture the magic of Harry Potter with a visit to Warner Bros. Hertfordshire is well-served with motorways and railways, providing good access to London, the Midlands and the North. Hertfordshire can also be reached easily from London’s airports, with both London Luton and London Stansted airports right on the county’s border. London Heathrow is just outside the county, only 30 minutes away from St Albans.

Centurion Club
We visited Centurion just 10 days before the Sixes were held there so they were in full preparation of this event and we were lucky to play hole 5-14.

Later on you go more in the open. Centurion is a relat…

The Shire London Golf Club
Not the easiest course to play by any means. Very tricky first hole par 3 over water and a challenging par 4 (!) 18th over water again to end. In between, if you score low, you'll deserve it. Relaxed clubhouse and you might bump into the odd celebrity member if you're lucky. Well worth a visit.

The Grove Golf Club
precioso campo parkland emulando a campo links. cada hoyo es una experiencia. muy equilibrado en sus 18 hoyos. pares 3 largos y cortos, muy buenos dog legs y par 5 challenging. De lo mejor que he jugado en UK.
