We'd Rather Be Playing... Brocket Hall, Hertfordshire
With full butler service, tennis courts and even a helipad, you’ll be thoroughly spoilt during your stay at this grand stately home. After your round you can enjoy a delicious meal with views of the lake at the award-winning, five-star Auberge du Lac restaurant.
The two championship courses are set within magnificent parkland, and named after the prime ministers who used to reside at the hall, Lord Melbourne and Lord Palmerston.
The 72-par Melbourne course, designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark, crosses the river Lea and is finished off with a memorable ferry ride to the 18th hole.
Meanwhile, the challenging Palmerston course takes you through the estate’s ancient woodland. With such spectacular views, it’s easy to see why the course is considered one of Donald Steel’s finest creations.
Brocket Hall is in Hertfordshire, just 22 miles from the centre of London.
