Dyrham Park Country Club's 6,497 yard course presents a rich and varied challenge, with tree-lined fairways and several water hazards. Ranked No.12 Golf Course in Hertfordshire by Top 100 Golf Courses, Dyrham Park is one of the most enjoyable Hertfordshire golf and country clubs.
Designed by C.K. Cotton, the course reflects the belief of "no risk, no reward". Numerous holes feature distinctive water hazards with the spectacular 7th tempting the brave with a 200-yard carry over a lake. The 6th and 13th holes boast an impressive lake measuring some 2,000 square metres that provides a genuine and daunting challenge to golfers of all handicaps. The stretch of holes from 14-16 - known as "the loop" - can make or break a round, with water a danger on each hole, but with chances for birdies too.
The 11th hole par 3 is one of the most challenging and interesting par 3s with a carry over a large lake to the green.
Accurate driving and clever course management are essential. Many holes present a choice of strategies from the tee: play safely for position or unleash a driver and hope to create a birdie chance. This makes the course hugely varied and enjoyable.
While the Club enjoys all the latest facilities, it retains many age-old golf club traditions, among them being the traditional 'roll up' on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
