Tree-lined parkland course
Entrance sneaks up on you as you approach. Plenty of parking available adjacent to a modenistic club house facility. Great practice facilities. Staff welcoming and friendly, no spikes in the bar though.
First tee within easy walking distance of clubhouse. Best to meet and greet then go and get clubs and shoess (in my opinion).
Course in good condition, good use of topography there are some ups and dowwns (some a bit extreme). A number of good holes (quite a lot of up and down tree-lined avenues though). This is a course that does need a re-visit, as a few holes do benefit from knowledge of how best to play them. Too easy to pick the wring club here and there. There are some good tight dogleg holes and a straing drive off the tee would be beneficiail...
Not overly long, greens were undulating and it did take a while to get to grips with speeds...
A course well worth a second trip... it is possible to score well here... with the benefit of hindsight.
All together - very average...
Radlett GC (formerly Elstree) is a reasonably pleasant course with a couple of good holes but overall I was left a little underwhelmed...
OK, so I played here in December on a cold damp day but saw enough to know there's not a great deal to shout about here. A bit 'Up and Down' in places, there nothing to really to complain about but equally nothing to rave about either. The greens were OK, the fairways adequate and the tee boxes average.
Couldn't comment on Pro shop as it was closed by 2pm(!) Clubhouse and Bar is modern and no doubts has good views of the 18th, 11th and 1st but this too was closed at 2pm(!).
We made do, by finding a local pub for a post-round drink but would have preferred to spend my money at the club.
A little pricey at £25 (Sunday at 12noon in Dec!!) so can't say I'll be rushing back!
Worth the visit
Played this course several times, this is the dampest it has been, but where isn't at present? Costs a little more than the normal some, but it is worth it for Monday morning millionaires golf.
Tee boxes are in reasonable condition, fairways are a bit muddy, but there has been a drop or two of rain lately and the greens though a touch fluffy are pretty true. The bunkers are ok (have sand!), but need the rabbit scrapings filled in, it's not really acceptable to leave them. Alright for us as we all played pick and place everywhere due to ground conditions
New clubhouse is a treat and the latte's are very nice. A visit in warmer (and drier) weather should be on the cards for later in the year.
Yes I would come back almost anytime.
The venue was enjoyable, good reception by staff, the course was challenging; in good condition considering the recent poor weather; greens were subject to maintenance and were unexpectedly firm. My below expected scoring on the front 9 was primarily due to my poor ball striking rather the course. The one inexcusable deficiency for me was the absence of a course planner. This led to many 'blind' drives and shots which one shouldn't have to experience. VFM was reasonable; I would happily play this course again.
