Marriott hanbury manor
Few golfing venues in Europe blend the old and new so successfully than the historic Marriott Hanbury Manor Hotel and Country Club in Hertfordshire. The "old" is the magnificent estate itself, which since the 19th century has featured a Jacobean-style mansion and included a nine-hole parkland course designed by the legendary Harry Vardon. The "new" is the 18 holes of championship golf redesigned by Jack Nicklaus II on the original Vardon course.
As London's time honoured "Original Country Retreat", you'll find the obliging service and amenities expected from a 5-star luxury hotel. It's a standard that extends from the richly panelled library warmed by an open fireplace, to elegant guest rooms, each individually designed and offering plush new bedding. With its fragrant walled gardens, stately Jacobean country house & 200 acres of Hertfordshire parkland, the historic Marriott Hanbury Manor Hotel makes a lasting impression.
The course at Hanbury Manor Country Club winds through ancient trees and picturesque water hazards, and provides a true challenge to anyone who enjoys golf. Designed by Jack Nicklaus II, the championship course combines the best of the original Vardon layout together with former meadowland to create a new course that not only looks beautiful, but plays superbly.
The course wraps itself around the Manor House and provides many contrasts of style and character. USGA specification greens and tees offer an excellent putting surface and great golf all year round. Hanbury Manor has hosted a number of major professional events, including the Men's English Open on the European Tour and the Women's European Open.
The Oakes Grill restaurant offers semi-formal dining, informal bar snacks or drinks on the balcony overlooking the 18th green and lake. Vardon's offers a light dining choice in relaxing surroundings.
