KEN BROWN, designer of the Aldwickbury Park course at Harpenden 15 years ago, returned recently to see the results of an upgrade of the course, costing £750,000, by new owners Burhill Golf and Leisure
After walking the course he said "The course has never looked better and the team has done a great job in the last year."
Harpenden resident Ken, who designed the course with architect Martin Gillett, approved the improvements to the greens and fairways on the 6,352 yard par 71 course..
"Our brief in building the course from scratch was to make it a top class course for all to enjoy, constructed to high specification to produce premier quality greens, tees and fairways." said Ken, former tournament winner on the European Tour and in America and five times Ryder Cup player now BBC TV golf commentator.
