Venue Info

Located to the North-west of London, the Centurion Club near St Albans was designed by Simon Gidman in 2013. Many of the carries and rough areas feature indigenous fescue grasses which have occasionally been added across approaches to greens or across fairways to give the course a distinct links feel. Tees raised well above fairway level provide spectacular views across the landscape with some 80 bunkers and four major water features on the entire 18 hole course – all of which can be avoided by careful planning.

Course Info

Players will face a modified six hole course with each hole comprising of different skill elements including a shot clock.
