Review's of Rickmansworth Public Golf Course
the course seems to be improving all the time.
Although the course is quite short it has some tricky holes and the hill.akesure you have a good cardio workout. The fairways and greens have improved hugely but the rough is still quite severe. bunkers need work.
Harry Colt Designed Course Worth £20,
Come here and break par.... Good Luck, Where can you play a Harry Colt designed course for £20 and if you have past the 3 score £18. https://golfchronicle.wordpress.com/2019/05/22/rickmansworth-the-exquisite-pocket-handkerchief-of-harry-colts-moor-park-triumvirate/
Only 4600 yards....ONLY, yeah really!!
The course may be short, but you need to think like a mountain goat. Expect a workout, and don't think it's simple. This was my second round there with James and I'm sure that I will return. Greens are pretty quick, fairways are not bad considering the rain of late, as with many courses, the bunkers are not great and the tees are in reasonable condition. James has said it, I'll back him up - GO PLAY IT!
Dont Listen to me
I have been banging on about Tricky Ricky for Ages. Here is some one else backing up my rantings. Have a look https://youtu.be/X48pnyHljHk

Short Course - Worth Visiting
OK I said the word short in the summary, and it is. If you glance at the score card, it is only par 65, and there are 8 par 3's on the card. That's nearly 50% of the course I hear you say . . is it a par 3 course? Look closer and two of the par 3's are 211 and 173 yards respectively. One of those is a blind shot over trees and the other is to a green cut on the other side of the hill. Long hitters won't be bashing drivers on many holes, but it is a picturesque course which rewards accuracy. Mid hitters can be bashing their drivers on most holes! It almost had a links feels about it, the way many of the holes seemed to be created from the natural contours. There are a few steep hills, but buggies are available. It is the sort of course you want to rush home from work and go and play. This is where a course of the this length scores (pun intended!) So go out and enjoy a round before it gets dark.
One of the best public courses around. Very well kept greens. Slightly hilly but provides a good challenge.
Excellent Value for the money
Short Course but its not called Tricky Ricky for nothing. Very well priced at £15 midweek, Good condition for a public course. Some memorable holes and a few small greens. I would recommend this course.
When you stand at the first tee you're given a glimpse of what's facing you in your round to come: A tricky uphiller where all you can see is the top of the flag and a couple of bunkers. There are eight par 3"s and only one par 5, but don't turn up expecting the course to roll over for you. There are hanging lies and unfavourable bounces ahead, along with a few climbs too, but this a very fair course that seems to be popular with all who play here.
they call this course tricky ricky and believe me it is
