What we say
This is a mature parkland that's now in good all-round condition after recent drainage work. On the tighter front nine you weave around the brook which comes frequently into play. On the back nine three par 5s allow you to smash the driver.
The Malden golf course was laid out in 1926 with the help of Alex Herd, one of the leading professionals at that time. The par 71 layout is made all the more difficult by the natural brooks which meander through the golf course and dictate how certain holes are played.
There are two distinct nines. The first half is played on the "low" part of the course where the brooks either cross or border seven of the nine holes. Strategy is the key off the tee, especially on holes 3,5,7 and 8. The second or "top" nine includes three par 5s and encourages players to pull out to the driver though trouble looms if you're too wayward.

A lovely course in great condition. Some of the best greens and fairways I have seen. Quite a flat course but makes up for it with it's length of most holes and a well placed brook running through the course. Only available to play in the high season which is worth it, but a real shame they don't do a cheaper deal in the Low. Overall it's worth playing.
