About Mid Herts 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.

Reviews
This 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.
