With Spring in the air, one of England’s most complete golf destinations, Brocket Hall, has launched a selection of ‘stay & play’ golf packages for the 2023 season. The packages give golfers the option of playing one or two rounds of golf, choosing from the Melbourne and Palmerston courses, and the opportunity to stay overnight in the historic Melbourne Lodge, originally the Estate’s old coaching stables. A full Traditional English breakfast, taken in The Melbourne Club, is of course included in all the packages with one-round, one-night packages starting from just £190 per person.
Lunch, before or after golf, and supper are additional and can be taken in the The Melbourne Club or the acclaimed fine-dining restaurant, Auberge du Lac, both conveniently located on the Hertfordshire estate. For those staying longer, there are further dining options at three excellent local pubs that offer food and refreshment within easy driving and walking distance of the estate.
“We are now fully geared up again to host visitors at Brocket Hall so we are looking forward to welcoming golfers to the estate. In addition to playing golf over our two parkland courses, the charm of the property’s characterful old buildings, the extensive picturesque grounds and the excellent food and wine at the Auberge du Lac make a ‘stay & play’ getaway here a really pleasurable and unforgettable experience,” comments Michael Longshaw, Managing Director at Brocket Hall.
Opened in 1992, the golf club boasts two of England’s most picturesque courses, both appropriately named after two notable Prime Ministers who once resided at Brocket Hall, Lord Palmerston and Lord Melbourne. Both are quintessentially British by design, but at the same time offer a completely different challenge for golfers of all abilities.
The par 72 Melbourne Course, designed by former Ryder Cup golfers Clive Clark and Peter Alliss, was opened in 1992 whilst the more technically-demanding Palmerston Course, created by Donald Steel alongside Martin Ebert who managed the design detail and construction, was fully open in 2000.
With its stunning views over the property’s glorious stately home and lake which is straddled by a magnificent bridge, the Melbourne guarantees visitors a highly-enjoyable and memorable day. It crosses the River Lea on four occasions as it follows the natural contours of the estate grounds before finishing in front of the Hall after a short ferry ride to the 18th green.
In contrast the par 73 Palmerston suits golfers looking for a more strategic, challenging round of golf. Unlike the Melbourne, this tree-lined track does not feature the river at all. Instead it meanders around the Capability Brown-inspired woodland of rare hornbeam, Scots and Corsican Pine, monkey puzzle and 500-year-old oak trees that create some spectacular hazards alongside the fiendishly-placed bunkers and large undulating greens that ensure a true test of golf.
The golf club is in a massively advantageous position to other Hertfordshire courses as its two courses are generally open 365 days per year.
Testament to the quality of this venue, Brocket Hall will once again host the Rose Ladies Open supported by Justin and Kate Rose, on the LET Access Series (LETAS) over the Melbourne Course from September 7 to 9 this year.
The history of the Brocket Hall is both complex and enchanting. The neo-classical stately home, established in 1760 and now available for exclusive hire, looks out over the Melbourne Course, a magnificent ornamental lake the iconic Paine Bridge which forms an integral part of the layout whilst the rest of the estate grounds and buildings are a delight to wander around.
