South Herts is a private members golf club located in Totteridge, North London.
The Club benefits from a range of first class facilities. Within its undulating wooded landscape are the mature 18 hole 6429 yard par 72 Vardon course, the 9 hole 1582 yard “par 3” Rees course and a practice ground with covered practice bays.
The welcoming and well-appointed Clubhouse houses an important collection of golfing memorabilia from Harry Vardon and Dai Rees, who together gave more than 70 years service to the Club. Amongst a long list of tournament victories Harry Vardon was the winner of six Open Championships and one US Open. Dai Rees also had a long and successful career as a professional, playing in 9 Ryder Cups, and captained the victorious Great Britain team at Lindrick in 1957. Visitors who are interested in the history of the game will find a few minutes browsing the collection well worth while.
Although golf has been played at South Herts since 1900 the Club has always been aware of the need to keep abreast of changes to the game, and the courses evolved over the early years with input from both Harry and Dai.
Originally designed by Willie Park Junior, Harry Vardon upgraded the 18 hole course layout three times during his time at the club. More recently the course has been the subject of a major up-grade under the supervision of architect Ken Moodie designed to ensure that the course meets modern standards of presentation and provides a strong strategic challenge to today’s long hitters, as well as enjoyable golf for both male and female club golfers with more modest skills.
These facilities, together with our attentive and efficient staff, make South Herts Golf Club an outstanding environment in which to enjoy the game whether as a member, visitor or as part of a Corporate or Society golf day.
