Porters Park is a classic 6,529 yard parkland course constructed in 1899. Its early design was influenced heavily by John Henry ‘JH’ Taylor, one of the pioneers of the modern game, and Charles Kenneth Cotton who went on to become one of the UK’s most distinguished post-war golf architects.
Located on the fringes of Radlett village yet in close proximity to London and outlying counties, the course sits in the tranquil Hertfordshire countryside surrounded by mature woodland and fields.
Picturesque, tree lined, fairways make effective use of the natural contours and undulations of the land and, with magnificent greens and a brook weaving through many holes, the course conspires to present a fair but testing challenge to golfers of all abilities.
Inspiring and playable throughout the year, its base of loam clay, sand and gravel gives the course a natural and remarkable ability to recover quickly from the heaviest of rain. As a result, temporary greens and tees are never in use and our course rarely closes.
The club has hosted regional Open Championship qualifying events on six occasions, is home to a number of prestigious amateur events, and is officially recognised by England Golf as one of Hertfordshire’s finest courses.
Porters Park offers a true test of golf where thought, accuracy and course management form some of the essential ingredients for an enjoyable game.
