Really good in all aspects.

Should let people know it's a double 9, pace of play slowed second time around. Very good facilities and in very good nick.

This course is a little gem

Although there are only 9 holes with 2 tees per hole, each is fair challenge and test, with fast and sometimes smallish, sloping greens, Arkley golf course is a fair challenge to golfers of all standards. The greens were in good condition for mid April and run true. The speed was frustratingly quick as a few putts ‘horseshoes’ and lipped out, so judging ‘dead weight’ putts is key to a low score. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon when we played in a perfectly quiet and beautiful part of the herts countryside. The recently refurbished clubhouse was also really nice and staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely play again and would recommend. The 9-hole set up is perfect for summer evening ‘half-rounds’ ;0)

Excellent conditions / greens for February

For a course that had probably been battered by a few storms the condition was excellent for February.

As the course is a 9-hole course that plays 18 we found ourselves hurried up by 3-4 separate solos playing quickly, which was a little frustrating having to let them through, but cannot be helped.

I am sure come the summer the course plays lovely if the greens are in a similar condition

Golfer

The double nines results in slow rounds. Well established fairways but little boggy at this time of the year

Really disappointing wet short course

Sadly this us only a 9 hole course posing as an 18... Also the course was absolutely water logged so I couldn't use trolleys and lastly the patrons were interfering and rude. I only started playing this year but have played at 20 different courses already and this one is by far the most disappointing, the short wet course and some miserable patrons all combined to make this a disappointing experience. Avoid if possible, especially in winter. Note, all the bar and ground staff were very nice and polite, just miserable patrons.

Booking problem

Course was good but we had a booking problem. We booked through GolfNow and paid. However, Arkley did not receive our booking(Fortunately, we played but irregular starting point and time adjustment needed).
We found that GolfNow was not linked to Arkley golf system. It is a system problem but I strongly recommend GolfNow to check or adjust the booking system together with Arkley.
Visitors should book through Arkley website.

The putting greens are well kept

It’s worth experiencing a round of golf here. It is a quirky course. One is playing the same course twice from different tees and that is enjoyable.

Thoroughly enjoyed it

Driven past it a hundred times and thought would give it a try - glad we did. Course was in excellent condition , lots of mature trees and established fairways; greens fairly quick. Was intrigued how the 9 hole layout would work with 18 different tee boxes but it very much did and the holes very often very different second time round. Second nine was harder and a bit longer. Completed our two ball in 3 hours 20 mins which was quick for us . Enjoyed a beer on the terrace afterwards . Found everybody helpful. Will play again.

Busy Double 9

The course itself is fairly good but as it’s a 9 hole played twice it gets extremely congested as there doesn’t seem to be any consideration tee times when players playing the 10th (1st) come across players tearing off at the first. Also the greens need a lot of work to get back to a reasonably standard.

Arkley Park

Does not specify that it’s 9 holes twice on the website, would not have booked had I known. Was well kept (bar winter tee boxes) but not enough of a difference between back nine tees. Staff were lovely and clubhouse is nice but must specify that it’s 9 holes twice!

Decent round, good value and friendly atmosphere.. Fairways needed a bit of work and greens a bit inconsistent . The different t positions are not that different therefore this is only really a 9 hole course

Only 9 holes !

Be warned this is only 9 holes with 18 tees Golf Now website doesnt make this clear when booking. I thought i was get a bargain hot deal £15 for a round only to discover its was for 9 holes. Staff very helpful in sorting us out a second 9 but had to pay a extra £15. Course was nice but no way worth £30
Plenty of better courses around some even half the price like Haste Hill and Rickmansworth
Not blaming course for this but Golf Now should make this clear at time of booking
