Golf Academy

One of the finest practice facilities in the South East

Located in a beautiful setting surrounded by mature woodland and the River Lea, The Melbourne Club Golf Academy is no ordinary facility. Much more than just a place to hit balls, the academy is a place where you can work with our team of instructors to fine tune any aspect of your game.

With numerous range mats, both exposed and under cover, and real grass areas to play from, the Academy is open for use all year round. Golfers can make use of a variety of putting greens, chipping greens, bunker areas and a long game driving range; we also have an indoor studio which is ideal for lessons on darker evenings, or if you wish to escape from the winter weather.

In addition to this, we have a stunning 7-hole par 3 course at The Melbourne Club Golf Academy, providing you with one of the best practice facilities not only in Hertfordshire, but possibly the UK. The Academy Practice Facilities can be used by all of our visitors playing under the three different golf packages.
