One of the best courses in the region, worth an overnight stop.
I think the 2 courses at Brocket Hall are fantastic. You can tell this is a premium venue from every aspect of the visit, from the driving into the grounds to the 19th Hole, this place oozes class.
The Melbourne course has a great layout around the River Lea with some testing holes. There is a lot of water compared to the Palmerston which is more forrest based. I think the Melbourne course is my favourite of the 2, saying that they have very similar ratings. It would be a shame to come here and not be able to play both if you get the opportunity, it's hard to have a clear favourite as they both are well worth a visit.
To add, this course used to be very expensive, unrealistically so. But I played with member previously so made it possible to get a couple of rounds in. It looks like it is under new management under the name the Melbourne club, being a local I have seen a really big improvement to the club in the last couple of years and "the Melbourne club" seems to be making a really positive difference to this club.
