Porters Park Golf Club


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Porters Park Golf Club Est. 1899

Where2Golf says: 

Porters Park Golf Club: The central feature of this quintessentially English parkland course, is a stream that runs through the bottom of the course, providing a natural water hazard on at least 7 of the holes. It is no surprise that Porters Park often gets an honourable mention on many published lists of top golf venues. The holes criss-cross the stream on a wonderfully undulating terraine, which also includes excellent (though not excessive) bunkering, a wonderful variety of trees, and many splendid long par-4s - the 8th, 11th and 18th holes are just three among many gems. All in all, a rightful contender to be described as one of Hertfordshire's best.
