Spectacular!

This place is a golf lovers dream. Practice facilities and course in great condition. I played in a weekday afternoon and there was no one on the course. There are a lot of hills so you need to be in reasonable shape to enjoy or have a cart. No carts were allowed the day I played and all electric buggies had been hired so had a pull trolley which made the walk extra difficult. But the elevations are what makes the holes so incredible to look at. The majority of holes are through mature woodland that you could swear you were playing Woburn at a discounted fee. Some of the holes out of the woods around the turn are a little plain but take nothing away from it, this course is a gem.

Lovely and enjoyable

Quite scenic and very enjoy place to have some golf fun. Starts you off gently but more challenges as the day progresses. Would recommend a buggy as course is fairly king and somewhat hilly in parts. All in all, a fabulous day out!!

Fantastic golf course

Fantastic golf course. Played the Palmerston Course mid afternoon as a fourball and had a blast. The tee boxes are in great condition, nice fairways and immaculate greens, couldn't ask for more. Course starts with a gentle par 4 and it gets better as go through with some long par 5s in the middle. No water here but plenty of bunkers. Will play again soon.

Always check for maintenance work!

Played the Palmerston today on the recommendation of Brocket Hall ( green maintenance on the Melbourne). No mention that at least six of the fairways on the Palmerstion were being tyned, leaving large areas of mud clods and mud pellets. At one stage they actually tyned a fairway as we played it! We played £90+ each for the priviledge of being subjected to an experience that not even my local council course would impose upon its players.
Next time we treat ourselves it won't be at Brocket Hall
