15 reviews of Mill Green Golf Club

I found the course a massive improvement upon last year, reflected in the previous comments. The greens are fast and run true and the course is a contrast of 2 9's that make it interesting and off the whites a good challenge in course management. The definition of the fairways was most aesthetic. The offers on green fees are exceptional and the clubhouse one of the best around. My whole experience was topped off by the friendly staff and the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. If I lived local I would seriously consider joining to play on a regular basis.

Agree entirely with previous report: good mix of holes in terms of shape of shots and where the trouble lies, however often only an iron required off the tee, couldn't give it the full whack often enough. i play off 14 and had a lot of 9 irons and wedges to greens, especially on front nine. holes 15, 16, 17 were really nice, tree-lined, even good shots could come up a cropper, however hole 18 is a big let-down. very boring par 3. if you play sensibly you should be able to match your handicap i think. MAJOR GRIPE was greens though: slow and bobbly, despite it being may and having good recent weather. The courses i usually play in north london/ south hertf. have greens from a different league to these ones.
I paid £32 internet booking on weekend.

Great course for walking - no steep inclines. There is water that comes directly into play on several holes and water that will catch a bad shot on 10 holes.
The first few times I played I found the course quite a challenge but now having played here many times it has become much more managable.
I agree with previous review that it doesn't play as long as the yardage suggests from the white tees, only a couple of long par 4's.
The wind is usually quite blowy and depending on direction really effects the way to play most holes.
Course has plenty of interest all holes have their own character - both nines are completely different - front quite open, back nine has some stunning holes at the end that are cut right through woodland.
Only drawback is the greens can be slow and bobbly and the tees can be a bit rough and uneven - staff seem to be constantly trying to sort this but so far with not much success.
On a positive rarely ever any temp greens or tees, great grass driving range, putting green, par 3 course and comfortable pleasant club house.
Very helpful in the Pro shop but not many products to buy.
Having played many courses this is not the best but very welcoming and certainly worth playing.
Note: My challenge rating is based on 18 handicap.

A 6615 yard course that doesn't play as long as the yardage suggests. A course which rewards good straight shots rather than just power shots. In terms of design, the second 9 holes have the more memorable holes, with the 16th in particular the stand-out hole. A par 5 which is reachable in two....but with the ultimate in risk and reward. The only downside was the speed of the green. They were slightly on the slow side. The clubhouse has a good friendly feel to it. As a member's guest, £21 green fees is a bargain.

Just played Mill Green today and was very suprised. Course was far better than I had expected.
As mentioned in previous posts 2 contrasting 9s which gives a bit more variation and interest. Felt that the course had real character and while not a hilly course there was a mixture of elevation from tee to green across the holes.
Overall the quality of the course was very good. The greens could be a little better and a bit faster but on the whole a smashing little course and so good I am seriously considering joining.
Playing off the yellows as we did the course is not very long but there is a massive difference between the whites and yellows. Felt that it was a course where you had to think your way round a bit rather than pull out the big dog and rip bombs down the fairway.

Played here midweek December 06 (£19.20 after 1 p.m.)
Quite an enjoyable ,good fun course that tails off a bit towards the end.
As usual it's a clever & well designed Peter Alliss course that makes the most of not very scenic surroundings (pylons,some industrial type of pumphouse in the middle of the course,constant road noise from the nearby A414,a big storage unit behind the 14th green.)
The front 9 (which i thought was the more enjoyable 9)is fairly open ,has a good feel to it & i thought every hole had something about it .Lots of well designed holes with moundings along the fairways , very good strategic bunkering & some ponds/lakes.It's fairly generous off the tee so you can have a whack with the driver.
The course carries on in this nature until you reach the last 4 holes which go through woodland.I didn't enjoy these holes as much & thought that this was where the course tailed off.If these holes had been in the same style as the previous holes i would have rated the course more highly.Also ,18 was a disappointingly weak par 3 finishing hole where you can't see the clubhouse.
The par 3's were okay but i've seen better on Alliss courses although there were plenty of enjoyable shortish par 4's.
There are some nice touches with big slate rocks by the tees,pockets of pampas grass , some nice plant areas & around the tees was very tidy.
Considering how wet it had been the course had dried out very well with few soggy areas & no muddy areas & the overall all round course condition was good.
If you can get this for less than £20 it's worth a go but for the normal £27 green fee i'd say no.

nice looking course but i thought some of the holes werent that hard- especially if u r a big hitter. hole 2 and 4 are short par 4s so a big hitter would have no problem. back 9 is better because the fairways are narrower with woods all around. but it is a good course. i would play there again

Played late March after substantial rain. Course in excellent condition with just two temp tees. Greens and fairways were really nice, if a bit slow - unless they have lots of water I suspect that it gets very fast in the summer.
Didn't feel that it was as much of a challenge as card suggested. Numerous par 4 and 5's, with not much variation even amongst the trees. A good drive on the mainly flat terrain gives a reasonable chance.
£20 for a round - not bad

what a little jem of a course. we played it monday 4/10/05 the staff were really helpfull and nice and the course was in realy good nick for the time of the year. the front nine were quite open but with bunkers in all the right places and quite tight fairways. the back nine goes into the woods with some brilliant and good challenging holes like the par3 15th and the par5 16th. we played of the yellows and the course is quite short (6059yrds) but still challeging. we had lunch arfter wich again was very good well done mill green.

Lovely Course, enjoyed it so much I've just joined. First 9 are reasonably open, but with good placement of bunkers and use of water to make ou think about every hole. Back 9 wanders through woods, and the 15th,16th and 17th are 3 of the nicest golf holes I've played. Clubhouse did indeed burn down, but the new one will be open in August. Really friendly staff and other members, a great atmosphere. Platinum membership gives you access to all the american golf courses, which includes the Hertfrodshire and I believe Hampton Court Palace on a 5 day membership basis, a deal which I don't think can be beaten.
Can't recommend it enough, go and try it out!

Even though the clubhouse has now burnt down! The course itself is lovely to play. The front nine playing a bit like a links course and the back heads you into woodland which makes a nice mixture. Good test for high handicappers off the yellows and a good challenge for people wanting to play off the whites. Greens are always in excellent condition although the fairways are suffering a bit with the hot weather. All in all a good place to swing your clubs.

An excellent design and great value for money on 2 fore 1. The opening loop is quite short but challenging if you get out of position with water coming into play particularly on 6 and 9. Enjoyable as the first nine is the back nine is even better with the dogleg par 4 12th (over water) and the par 5, 14th excellent holes. However the best is left to last with the 15th, 16th and 17th through thick woodland, the 16th in particular would grace any course in the country. If the par 3 18th is an anticlimax then it's more than made up for by whats gone before. Will defintely play again next year!

A very enjoyable course of the back tee's - has a couple of great par 05 on the back 09,14 & 16- water is in play on many holes . Good greens nice and undulating but fair .
You will need to a hit a long ball if you play of the back tee's 6600 yards - we played here on a two for one deal so it cost £12.50 which has to be the best value golf I have played .

A lovely well maintained course with sculpted greens and bunkers, and some great holes surrounded by woodland. Quite easy considering that a lot of the greens are hidden - or was I just having a great day ?!?
£25 for a saturday morning tee, and another £15 in the bar afterwards makes it worth it once a month. ( remember to wear a shirt for entry to the nice bar )

A good test of golf off the back tees and suprisingly mature for a new course. 9 open holes and 9 through mature woodland.
