A five-year upgrade project to the Melbourne Course at Brocket Hall Golf Club is set to begin this summer.
Led by designer Guy Hockley of the Golden Age Golf Architecture firm, the renovation plans include enhancements to the course’s bunkers, the redesign of selected greens, and general improvements to playing surfaces.
Located in Hertfordshire, UK, Brocket Hall is set in 18th century parkland and home to two 18-hole golf courses named after the two prime ministers who once resided there – Lord Melbourne and Lord Palmerston.
The par-72 Melbourne Course was designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark and opened in 1992.
“Together with Guy, we have constructed a comprehensive plan that will see the Melbourne Course continue to compete with the best courses in the country,” said David Griffin, director of golf operations at Brocket Hall Golf Club. “We take great pride in our commitment to provide our members with the best possible facilities. Numerous improvements have been made at the club over the past 12 months and the enhancement of the Melbourne Course will only add to this success.”
