“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.

A tricky hole, but one of the prettiest. Hit your drive to the centre of the fairway and as close to the edge of the plateau as possible. Then its a mid-iron into the green. Aim for the left side of the green because everything rolls to the right. Beware the small bunker by the right of the green. A birdie is possible on this hole but most will settle for a par! Look out for the bluebells in late spring.
