What we say
Porters Park is a golfing gem located in rural Hertfordshire. It is a parkland golf course featuring a wonderfully varied selection of pine and deciduous trees. Each hole is memorable in its character.
The golf course originated from the park, known as Porters dating back to 1340, which John Le Porter owned. It was in the late 19th century when the attractive park was described as 'designed by providence to be a golf course'. Dr. Ross Smyth made the vision happen so Porters Park was born, being ready to play in 1899.~
The only remaining evidence of the Porters estate is the old Mansion House, perched on the hill to the east of the golf course at Shenley. Also, one of the original ice houses is located in the pine copse on the right of the 3rd fairway.
The clubhouse was extended in 1991, but retains its older features of the domed ballroom/lounge and gabled 1st floor offices over the members' bar. The dining room affords a wonderful view of the opening hole, while the ballroom / lounge view the opening and closing holes, and will no doubt provide visiting golfers with a treasured memory of this quality golf course.
