Porters Park Golf Club

The Golf Course

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.

Visitors and societies are always welcome and the club can be contacted directly to discuss membership opportunities.

The clubhouse combines modern high standards with tradition. Visitors have full use of changing and shower amenities, and thoughtfully stocked bars. Conference and wedding facilities are also well catered for by a team of experienced staff who provide an exceptional level of service.
