“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.

From a different tee this time around the hole is even trickier!. The men’s tee box is at the right hand side and this brings the trees into play. There are a lot of lost balls from this tee! Conversely, the ladies tee is easier than the first time around. When the weather is dry the green won’t hold your approach, so land the ball near the tree on the left and run it into the green. Take a moment to consider your surroundings, even in deepest winter the hole can be hauntingly beautiful.
