The Golf Course and Club were founded in 1892 and opened for play in 1893, making Mid-Herts Golf Club one of England's earliest golf courses.
It is a well
kept, attractive heathland course with some challenging holes
for both high and low handicappers.
It is noted for its open landscape with heather, juniper and other heathland plants and flora.
course has a lot, it is not long but it makes up for it with
some tight holes. The Driver is only needed on about eight
occasions. There is a little sand, a little heather, a little
gorse, a little water, a little rough and little greens that
make up for it’s short 6000 yds.
It is not easy, beginners should bring enough ammunition.
I think it is a fair course, in most places the rough is quite
tall, but thinned out enough to find your ball.
The original course of 1892 used to cross two roads, with
holes in front of the Tin Pot Pub which can be seen from the
3rd green and the Cross Keys Pub which is now obscured by
trees on the right of the 3rd fairway. With the increase in
automobiles the course was reshaped in 1925 & 1967.
Holes 7, 8 & 9 are located on a new area of land, know to
the members as ‘the field’ here the rough can
be quite fierce as the ground condition for these three holes
is some what different than the soft fairways of the original
course. The plan for playing the three holes in the field
is do not hit it left !
The Clubhouse has just been extended and refurbished. The
food is just the best and the bar staffs are the friendliest.
There is a lot of history at the club. One of our proudest
is that one of the first pro’s at Mid-Herts was Horace
Rawlins, he won the very first U.S. Open Championship in 1895
and was runner up in 1896. Malcolm R Ash (Pre 2010)
