Brent Valley is a municipal parkland course that is fairly open with the river Brent coming into play on a few holes. A little up and down at the start and end but flat in between.
Has a couple of interesting holes on the back nine, the 11th is a short par 4 dogleg that gives you the choice of laying up just before the corner of the dogleg or going for it over the ditch that runs across the fairway.
The 13th is a long par 3 with a very narrow gap between the trees from the tee just in front of the river Brent.
Aldenham is a pretty parkland course with good greens and mature trees that make the course look great. A little hilly in places but walking is easy through most of the course.
Hole thirteen was interesting, 636 yards from the white tees it is a long hole even if you do get a good tee shot and a good second shot you need to be on the left of the fairway for your third or you may not be able to see the green.
