You may not be able to get a round at Augusta National in Georgia but you can play the 12th & 16th Augusta ‘Tribute’ holes at Northwick Park in Harrow, Middlesex.
The Majors course at Northwick Park was voted the UK’s top 9-hole course in 2009, it’s superb greens and accurately crafted replications of the key holes at Major Championship venues like Royal Troon, The Belfry, Royal Birkdale and of course Augusta make the layout a great challenge at a very affordable price.
Trawled through my old golf images and found this, I managed to capture the reflection of the sun in the water!
I visited Rickmansworth Golf Club during the week, had a few rain showers during the round but still enjoyed it immensely. It looks as though they have spent a little bit of money on the course, with nice new signs on every tee, new paths and a ‘Golf Academy’ just left of the first tee.
Set among acres of breathtaking natural landscape the Arden course has you negotiating a route around a number of lakes while also avoiding, gorse, trees and deer. From the Championship tees, the Arden measures 7,213 yards, demanding quality ball striking to find the outstanding putting surfaces.
