Centurion

The Centurion Club, Herts

Soils have been brought from all over the  London area to help create this majestic course. It opened – after nearly 20 years in the making –  in June 2013. The new owners, Bert Pronk, André Hendriks , Graham Wildish and Scott Evans were determined to make the course into one of  championship status and upon purchasing the site in 2010 decided to redevelop the greens with more contouring, adding more bunkers, lengthening the course and perhaps, most importantly, adding a further 21 acres of woodland, to form three new holes at the beginning of the round. Despite the creation of many golf holes from soils, the one underlying feeling from the Centurion course is one of a course carved out of pine trees, with 10 of the holes  surrounded by woodland.  The courses measures over 7200 yds.  but with 7 of the holes played as par 5’s from the everyday tees, the course is not as difficult as it may first appear. The greens are of pure bent and roll, as you would expect  championship course greens to roll. Darren Anderton (England footballer ) and Kenny Logan ( Scotland rugby player) are two of the local sporting celebrities who are members of the Club.
