There are so many courses in and around the north London area that fall into the nice but not startling parkland category and Brickendon is one of them. The course has a number of really good holes and also a number of very average ones. The hole that will remain etched in your memory is the 17th, which is a supremely challenging two-shotter and placing a 4 on anyone’s card is a major achievement. The greens are generally in great condition and faster than most, certainly in the summer. Bring your thinking game along and use the driver sparingly as position rather than sheer length is key to a decent score. A nice but rather uninspiring track.
