Berkhamsted, a relatively undiscovered heathland delight...this is a quality golf course which oozes class. Played this course for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I was most impressed, the winter condition was excellent all round and the test of golf was equally good. I must say I liked the front nine best; we started on the 10th and the sequence hung together really well. The 9th is a great finishing hole, goodness knows why this isn't the 18th. Despite the fact that there are no sand bunkers, the natural grassy hollows make life just as difficult. Super course, a hidden gem if ever I saw one.
