About the employer

Bushey Hall Golf Club, established in 1890 and situated on the outskirts of North London, is the oldest parkland golf course in Hertfordshire. The elegant clubhouse, built in 1907, is set in 120 acres of mature wood and parkland and reflects the characteristic charm and heritage so typical of its age. A beautifully landscaped terrace, with surrounding rockery garden and water feature, makes for an impressive and calming first impression, with views extending down the fairway through ancient oak trees. The 18-hole course is superbly designed and maintained, combining long par fives, short par threes and challenging par fours. Water, tree lines and undulating rough sufficiently challenge low handicaps, yet do not deter our less experienced golfers. As a proprietary-owned golf club, we pride ourselves on taking care of our members and guests. We set ourselves apart by being a professional, family-friendly, social and caring golf club.
