Regarded as something rather special by its famed English architect Donald Steel this course is one of the finest that he has created. The Palmerston is frequently held up as a perfect example of a top quality golf course created with minimum intrusion to the site.
In contrast to the Melbourne on the tree lined Palmerston you don't have to contend with the river at all, instead the Estate's ancient woodland of rare Hornbeam, Scots and Corsican Pine and 300 year old Oak trees create some of the most spectacular hazards likely to be encountered on a golf course. Teamed with fiendishly placed bunkers and large undulating greens this challenging par 73 is a great test and is rightfully rated as one of the Top 100 Golf Courses in the UK.
The Palmerston is ranked 94 in the Top 100 courses on Today's Golfer.
