Horsendon is a little council owned nine hole course, there are 8 par 3′s and 1 par 4 here, but the course does offer great views nice greens and is good practive for beginners.
Although I say this course is good practice for beginners it does have a tough opening hole, quite long and the tree right in front of the green makes this a tricky challenge for any golfer.
Hedsor is a nice little nine hole course, the fairway’s were a little soggy but the greens were very firm and in good condition. The course is well laid out upon the land available, they could have just created fairways that ran alongside each other with the tree line dividing them, but the designer chose to have the holes cut through the tree line on a number of occasions making the course much more interesting.
A nice little touch is a wind sock on one of the holes, when asked “Where is the helicopter pad then?” for a joke, the guy in the pro shop told me there is a runway on the course that is still in use, hence the plane on the club’s logo.
