Where2Golf says: 

Old Fold Manor Golf Club: On the highest point on the Great North Road between London and York, lies this easy-draining, gently-undulating parkland course. The excellent ground drainage comes courtesy of a "fold" of sand and gravel on which the course is based. - this also helps to explain the slightly heathland feel to parts of the course and the wonderful links-like bumps and hollows on the fairways. Most of the holes are pleasantly tree-lined, some tight, others giving the driver a chance to shine. The sting here is definitely in the tail, with two long par-4's to finish, and an old manor house moat to navigate before reaching the 18th green. A busy course that provides a pleasant golf outing in North London.

Did you know?

There are several documented "old" features here at Old Fold Manor. The hedgerow between the 1st tee and 2nd green is reputedly over 900 years old; part of the Lancastrian army marched up the 6th fairway on their way to the bloody Battle of Barnet - 500 years ago; the moat in front of the 18th green dates from the 13th century and was built by Thomas Frowke, a prosperous London merchant - remains of the manor house he built are nicely buried under what is now the pro-shop.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
