Essendon Country Club gains national recognition
Stunning Hertfordshire course awarded England Golf’s coveted Golf Mark High Achiever Accreditation
ESSENDON COUNTRY CLUB has been awarded England Golf’s coveted Golf Mark High Achiever Accreditation.
The Golf Mark award identifies Essendon CC as one of England’s most junior and beginner friendly golf clubs and recognises the lengths to which it has gone to make its facilities open to all.
"Essendon Country Club not only goes the extra mile to ensure the success of their club, community and its members but also contributes to the future of our sport," said Herts Golf's community development officer Emma Whitlock.
"I am proud to be working with a Club that is as proactive as this and it will be a pleasure to be able to continue this link in the future."
Co-owner Kieran Griffin added: "We are delighted to have been awarded the coveted Golf Mark status as it recognises all the hard work we have done over the last 12 months to make Essendon an attractive place to learn to play golf.
“However, this is only just a start. We hope to build on this in the future and ensure that Essendon is recognised as one of the most user-friendly golf clubs in the country."
Essendon is situated in a picturesque 400-acre estate between Welwyn Garden City and Hertford and close to the M25, M1, A1 and A10.
It features two courses, the 6,808-yard Old and the 6,938-yard New, a 9-hole pitch and putt course, extensive practice facilities and a delightful clubhouse built around an original 16th century barn.
