Verulam Golf Club was established in 1905 and our challenging 6,429 yards (par 72) course was designed by James Braid so we are now well into our second century as a thriving members’ club situated in the heart of historic St Albans, known as Verulamium in Roman times.
We take great pride in the condition of our course and the pace and subtlety of our greens. The course is fast-draining and is rarely closed, even in winter, so you can be assured of a challenging but fair test at any time of the year. Off the course you will find a warm welcome in our traditional clubhouse.
Verulam Golf Club has a tradition steeped in the game of golf. Samuel Ryder, a wealthy St Albans seed merchant, Captain of the Club and prolific supporter of early professional golf, donated the Ryder Cup in 1926. His biennial competition between Europe and the USA is now, without doubt, the most important matchplay event in the world of golf.
Verulam Golf Club is pleased to offer all hotel guests a 10% discount off green fees subject to availability.

I would just like to send a big thank you to yourself and the staff at Beales in Hatfield! My 50th Birthday celebrations went off without a hitch, the room was excellent, the music brilliant and the food wonderful. Everyone had a fantastic time, especially myself.
Thank you again for helping to arrange a very special night.

Aron's Bar Mitzvah
Hope you're well. We've now had the official photographs delivered, so we would like to make the following testimony:
We've just held our second Bar Mitzvah of the family at Beales Hotel, Hatfield and are thrilled to say that Beales have once again done an amazing job for us, making our Simcha a very happy occasion.
Lyndsey, of the event organisation team, dealt with all the arrangements in the lead up to the big night, and Theo, the Event Manager, was there on the evening to make sure everything run smoothly. Both of them were extremely, pleasant, professional and organised to deal with. They communicated the information well between the two of them, and were always there at the end of the phone or email to efficiently handle any queries or requests we had.
Sadly, we don't have any more children to arrange a Bar Mitzvah, but if we did, we would not look further than Beales, and we can happily recommend the same to anyone else! Roll on future special Birthdays, engagement parties and weddings, because we'll be back in touch Beales!
Hope that's okay Lyndsey but when you cut and paste it out of my email to put it on the website or whatever else you may put it on, feel free to tweak anything not quite right for you.
I have (hopefully) attached some photos of the room, but let me know if you want any of the actual evening with the party going on.
Thanks again Lyndsey to both you and Theo for being so brilliant, and please do pass on my comments to Theo as well.

To whom it may concern,
We were the brides’ parents, David and Mary for the Roberts/Stanton weekend, and unintentionally took one of our keys back (in the wedding suit). Please find is enclosed – room 19.
Thank you again to Sumi and all the staff who served us over the course of our weekend. It made our visit such a brilliant experience, and we will post a review on TripAdvisor shortly.

We've just about recovered thanks, we're away in the new forest now in a lovely log cabin with hot tub so that's helping!
Thank you so much for everything, the day went without a hitch and everything ran so smoothly! We were so impressed with the way everything was organised, we really were.
Special thanks to you and also to Mark on the day as he was fantastic and couldn't have done any more to make the day special for us. Please thank him from us as he really was amazing. Big thanks to Karla as well for all her help on the day.
It was a pleasure working with you too and we'll be sure to provide very positive reviews as we had the best day ever and everyone at the hotel were so kind and accommodating to us and our guests.
Hopefully we'll get to work with you again in the future.

I just wanted to thank you for your support on this event.
The venue were very supportive and all the last minute requests were actioned in readiness for the Thursday.
(When I arrived Wednesday, the additional equipment was sourced; the rearrangement of the room; the arrangements regarding how we would work the timings now on the opening and closing of the partitions etc)
Please could you let all concerned know how ‘brilliant and supportive’ the staff at The Beales hotel were.
Nothing was too much trouble.
At no point did I ever experience a problem finding Jake or Clara.
Refreshments / lunch were all super and in abundance.
It was a real pleasure to work with this team - everything I needed / wanted was actioned quickly, quietly, efficiently and with lovely smiles and such ‘willing attitudes’.
Huge thanks to all involved

Thank you so much for your email. I would like to say a big thank you to yourself, Karla and everybody else at Beales for making mine and Hayley’s day so memorable and running so smoothly! All of our guests had a fantastic time.
Thank you so much for all of your planning and hard work, culminating in a very special day that neither I nor Hayley would change anything about.

Just to say thank you for the great service that we had whilst staying with you last night.
The service was very good and the food beyond what we had expected.
Marc - I love your sense of humour.
Look forward to coming back.

Marjorie and I write to thank you personally and Beales Hotel in general for the excellent service you provided for our Golden Wedding Anniversary Celebration last Saturday.
Thank you for being so friendly and helpful in the planning of the event, for your understanding when problems arose, and for following up after the event.
The room was ideal, the food just right in quality and quantity, and the service provided egregious. All of our 64 guests were full of praise for the setting, meal, and its accompaniments.
Outstanding were your attention to detail e.g. the gap between chairs for our wheelchair guest, and the timeous and seamless service of a three course meal with drinks and coffee unobtrusively and without mishap. Cutting up and serving a large iced fruit cake was also performed with exemplary efficiency.
We were also extremely impressed by Karla’s and Mark’s control and management of the event.
Overall it was a grand day made perfect by being able to relax overnight in the executive room which was part of the package.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your hotel as the venue for such an event to any other prospective customers.
We hope to see you all again soon.

I have just returned from your Hatfield hotel after holding my sister's wedding there on 1st August.
I wanted to take the time to fill you in on our experience we had.
From the very first day of being shown around by Lyndsey, the service has been impeccable. It has not faltered once throughout the numerous visits to the special day itself. Lyndsey herself had been incredible and guided us every step of the way and been very supportive.
My sister and I stayed at the hotel the night before to set up and had superb service from Carla and Sumi. Nothing was too much trouble and they were constantly making sure we had everything we needed and if there was anything that they could do to help. They kept us informed of when they were leaving and who would be around to help instead (a lovely touch).
The waiting staff were very polite and unobtrusive and made the dining a pleasure- which leads me on to the food itself! Nothing short of spectacular. Thank you to chef and his kitchen crew whom I'm guessing often get forgotten in a thank you. Everyone at the wedding breakfast thoroughly enjoyed their meals.
Marc was an amazing host! He ran the whole event faultlessly! We had to worry about nothing and he steered the ship perfectly to give my sister the wedding that she deserved.
You have an absolutely invaluable team at The Beales Hotel and I will definitely be recommending this venue all over for every occasion.
I'm certainly thinking of our next family get together at your hotel in the not so distant future.
Thank you so very much for all your teams support, kindness and most of all a hassle free most enjoyable time!!

Dear Mr Hall,
Greetings from New Delhi.
A few days back, on my visit to University of Hertfordshire, I had the pleasure of staying at Beales Hotel.
Please convey my thanks to all members of the Beales Hotel.
Look forward to staying at Beales during my next visit to Hertfordshire.

You beat me to it!
I wanted to write and thank you and all the staff for making a truly memorable amazing night for all of us. Josh had the time of his life. The room looked great, food delicious and staff so lovely from reception, to waiters and waitresses, and Marc and all the hotel staff did a fantastic job. We had to re dress the kids table as a couple of children dropped out and Marc made it all very easy. I’ve had lots of compliments from the guests. Please do pass on our thanks and appreciation for all their hard work.
Sorry I drove you so nuts in the last week with many hundreds of emails!

RE: WHCA event: Jane Lowe replying on behalf of Jonny Ball
Many thanks for your message. I’m just replying from Jonny’s WHCA email address to say that Jonny has now left us to move on to other employment in London. We are very sorry to see him go because he has been a very popular member of the team and we shall miss him.
We will be filling Jonny’s post as soon as we can and I know that our new Agent will lose no time in making contact with you!
We would like to send our thanks to you and your team for making the event so memorable and enjoyable. Everyone was very happy and it was an evening to remember.

Thank you for your kind words.
We can't thank you , Theo and the rest of the team for making our day special.
Everyone said how amazing Beales is and we agree.
We finally went to bed about 2:30am on the Saturday night/Sunday morning and I think the first time we sat down at ours was Sunday 7pm on which we both feel asleep on the sofa!
Our mini moon to Budapest was lovely and would recommend going there.
Thank you again.

Re: Fundraising Dinner – 7th March 2015
Thank you for the excellent service – as usual – at our Fundraising Dinner that Step held at your hotel back in March. Unfortunately we did not make as much money as we would have liked, but we have gained several new volunteers, which will actually be worth more to Step than the money we expected to raise.
Thank you for your kind hospitality, support and generosity towards Step.
Director - Step
Thank you so much for your kind donation for my Charity Golf day that took place on Friday 22nd May in aid of The Play Appeal – Lister Hospital.
We managed to raise just over £4500.
Without your support, it wouldn't have been such a great day.
