Review's of Cheshunt Park Golf Club
Quality of Course
Value for Money
Very Picturesque Parkland Plubic Course
Cheshunt is set amongst very mature trees, near the Cheshunt Country Park. Very well kept, good layout, easy to follow directions, not difficult to walk, lots of nice scenery around, today the ducks and the pheasants enjoyed the rain, but we (the 3 of us) did not really but it did not stop our game as we were doing some good shots (some of us were). Some wide fairways but hazards well placed to make golf a bit of a challenge, the "Blasted Oak" (Hole 4), is a magnet for the little white ball, water on quite a few holes in the form of ponds, streams or ditches with thick, very thick grass, some interesting dog legs. Not a very long course giving a chance to get a good score when you get to know the course. This was my 2nd visit. Today it was wet, and quite a lot of paddles so I expect that winter play is not so pleasant. The greens are very good indeed, fairly easy to read so that help the scoring, obviously today the vast part of the game was under the rain, heavy at times. The bunkers were a little wet and compacted, but I like the design, as most of them have grassy mounds (banks) making it even more challenging to reach the greens. Hole 3 (par 3) is over 200 yards, the sweet 17th (par 3) is only 115 yards but well guarded. Looks like a well attended Golf Club, saw a few Seniors (from either Mars or Venus) and Juniors, Clubhouse (and its terrace) looks good but did not go in as too wet and wanted to get home quickly knowing that the M25 would have heavy traffic.... but the journey home was not too bad. Nice practice putting green Friendly staff around. Very reasonable rates. There is evidence of Roman settlement in this area and a big Park for family, dog walking, picnic (dont forget the picnic blanket and the wine!!!). A nice course, not too difficult and worth a try, must be very enjoyable on a warm sunny day.
