Verulam Golf Club

Welcome to Verulam Golf Club, home of the Ryder Cup …

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.

It has great par 3’s along with superb greens that will require your full attention to keep scoring well.

Crews Hill was the home club to Mr Charles Whitcombe from 1925 -1950. He was a ‘3 time Captain’ of the GB&I Ryder Cup Team in the thirties. He boasts a course record 59 shot in 1937! This would be a remarkable feat today! Let alone 8 decades ago.
