“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.

Played from the same tee, this hole comes as a respite after the difficult stretch beforehand. It’s a definite birdie chance! Hit a big fade, preferably to the left side of the fairway and get the best angle into the green. The green is guarded by a deep bunker to the right – don’t be tempted to go over the bunker to a sucker pin. Once on the green you’re sure to have a nice flat putt!
