LUXURY STAYS AT BROCKET HALL
Here’s an ultra-rare opportunity for golfers to experience a sensational luxury golf package.
An exclusive overnight stay at Brocket Hall, one of English golf’s most historic venues, used to be as rare as rocking horse droppings – but a range of new luxury residential packages has just been launched at the prestigious Hertfordshire golf club.
Few places in England can match Brocket Hall’s colourful past, which includes close links to two British prime ministers – Lord Melbourne and Lord Palmerston – and golfers can now discover for themselves why the club has become one of the most sought-after venues in the country.
The new packages are available for £415 per person and include a bacon roll breakfast on arrival, 18 holes of golf, an evening dinner, an overnight stay in the hall, breakfast the following morning and a further 18 holes, based on a minimum booking of 20 people.
Brocket Hall’s glamorous mansion has hosted an extensive list of royalty, celebrities and well-known dignitaries, and each guestroom bears the name of a notable figure who has either lived at Brocket Hall or who has been closely associated with the house.
Lord Melbourne, a close friend of Queen Victoria who often stayed at Brocket Hall during her reign, and Lord Palmerston both resided at the famous venue in the 19th century while looking after the affairs of the nation.
More recently, the late Baroness Thatcher also chose the great hall to write her memoirs.
David Griffin, director of golf operations at Brocket Hall Golf Club, said: “With the launch of these stay-and-play packages, we are offering a truly unique and special experience – one that can’t be matched anywhere else in the country.
“The packages are perfect for anyone looking to entertain business partners and those who wish to host a truly memorable social golf event.”
Set within 543 acres of stunning 18th century parkland, the par-72 Melbourne Course is situated in magnificent surroundings, crossing the River Lea several times before a memorable finish in front of the hall after a short ferry ride to the 18th green.
In contrast, the Palmerston Course is a challenging par-73 woodland layout, with rare Hornbeam, Scots and Corsican pine and 300-year-old oak trees creating a memorable test for professionals and amateurs alike, and is ranked in the latest ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in England’ poll by Golf World.
