  • 4.5 out of 5 Batchworth Park - Hertfordshire Heaven (members club)

    By DelC

    A Dave Thomas designed course measuring 6723 yards off the back tees. Although the course is described as parkland, it has a heathland feel to it, mainly because it is built on the side of a hill leading up to Batchworth Heath. There are stunning views over the Colne Valley, but it is generally quite exposed and wind is often a big factor. Most of the holes are different and memorable. The course and the greens have been in very good condition this year. The 1st is a longish par 4 with large gorse bushes down the left and a pond and bunkers on the right to catch errant drives. It then doglegs slightly right to a large sloping green which causes many a three putt. The 3rd is the Stroke index 1 hole and is a long switchback in nature Par 4. A good drive will land on the plateau on top of the first switchback, leaving you about 200 yards across another valley to the green. The 7th is a classic risk and reward, dogleg left, short Par 5. If you are prepared to take on a cluster of deep bunkers and an out of bounds down the left hand side off the tee, you will be left with a medium/long iron for a two-putt birdie. Shorter hitters have to play it as a three shotter. The 8th has a lake on the right and a large bunker on the left. If you avoid these you will be left with a short iron to a two tier green. Unusually the top level is on the left and the bottom level is on the right. Get on the wrong level and there is a good chance of a three putt.  The 9th is a Par 5, also with a two tier green. The top level is at the back this time and is tiny. If the hole is cut on the top level it is a dauntingly small target for your approach shot. The 13th and 14th are both long Par 5s. The 13th is the harder of the two, as everything slopes off to the right towards an out of bounds fence and other trouble.  The 14th is more straightforward, but longer and normally played into the prevailing wind. You need three pretty stout shots to reach the green. The 16th is a dog leg par 4 played around a lake and is the Stroke Index 2 hole. The 18th is a Par 4 dominated by an old dead tree. Get behind it and you are stymied. Add water hazards in front and behind the green and a sloping kidney shaped green with bunkers left and right and any par is hard earned. Then retire to the comfortable clubhouse for food and liquid refreshment. Batchworth Park is a members only club by the way, so no pay and play, but well worth playing as a guest if you know a member there.
