course

“Don’t be deceived.  It might be a short 9-hole course but it’s a little gem.  It provides a very enjoyable setting for a challenging round of golf.  The key with this course is to keep the ball straight!  The 3rd is a real favourite of mine, around 110 yards from an elevated green, fantastic hole”.

A Challenging track in beautiful surroundings!

If you haven't played Ley Hill then you're in for a treat! Hidden away between Chesham and Hemel Hempstead lies Ley Hill, a pretty little village known for its two pubs opposite the cricket pitch. It also has a delightful golf course which sits amid the oak woodland of Ley Hill common. Every hole is lined by mature trees, and in late spring, the woods are resplendent with bluebells. The course is renowned for its challenging tee shots and small greens. Many of the holes on the back nine are played off alternate tees.

HOLE 1

The May Tree

Men: 255yds, par 4, stroke-index 18
Ladies: 235yds, par 4, stroke-index 16

Supposedly the easiest hole on the course, but it can bite!  It’s a real ‘risk and reward hole.  You can take an iron off the tee and lay up for a wedge into the green, or you can take on the green with a driver or 3-wood.  If you do take on the green you need a slight draw but beware, the hole narrows towards the green, and it’s a reload if you go too far left!
