Berkhamsted Golf Club: this much admired tree-lined course sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty, its fairways flanked by gorse, heather and trees. Notable for not having any sand bunkers, there's plenty of grassy humps and hollows to compensate.
The fairways are quite generous here, and the “springy” grass a joy to play from. Although not quite as spectacular as some other heathland courses in the southeast of England, Berkhamsted is a wonderfully natural and well-laid out course, which provides a thorough test for your golfing skills.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and after 11:30am on weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
