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 Palmerston Course is a great test of skill and you have to be accurate in direction off the tee as well as placing the ball at the correct distances on some tough doglegs through the trees. Summertime is brilliant, winter time it can get very wet as its well shaded by very mature trees, sometimes the course is closed and the Melbourne stays open.
This course in the peak season is hard to beat.
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.
