Hanbury Manor, Marriott Hotel & Country Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1990

Hanbury Manor, Marriott Hotel & Country Club: This relatively open parkland course, which has frequently hosted European Tour events, is set in the grounds of a beautiful Jacobean-style manor house (tastefully extended by Marriott Hotels).

After a longish walk to the first tee, the rolling Hertfordshire countryside opens up in front of you and a very interesting and undulating front-nine ensues. Occupying one-side of a picturesque valley, there is plenty of elevation change and, inevitably, water hazards to contend with at the bottom of the slope.

By contrast, the back-nine is played in front of the Manor, in a much more park-like setting. A scattering of mature trees, small lakes, good bunkering and plenty of landscaping combine to create a challenging set of closing holes. The occasional drone of traffic from the nearby A10 on the later holes should not disturb your concentration on this very solid and well-maintained golf course.
