“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 classic dog-leg [left] hole that demands supreme accuracy off the tee. You don’t need a driver but you do need to land the tee shot on a six-pence to ensure an unobstructed line to the green. You’ll lose your ball if you go too wide, and there’s a big tree in the centre of the fairway. Some players choose to lay-up short, and hit over the tree, others try to scoot the ball under the tree. The green slopes to the right so try to find the right side of the green for an uphill putt.
