    Since my last review i have lost one leg, does that count as a handicap? I still feel that this course is off the highest quality and will test the nerves of even old Tiger Woods himself. So i put it to you that i will challenge Tiger woods to try his luck on this small and compact municipal course, and see if he can beat our golf pro (can't be that good if he can't even work on an 18 hole course!!). Go on tiger if you dare!!

        Edward, It depends which leg you have lost! Assuming you are a right handed player and you have lost your right leg you should be okay. It will help you to keep the weight on your left leg.

    This course is as the previous reviewer wrote an extremely challenging course. I admit my handicap is not the best but I have spent countless afternoons playing up the fairways there. The dogleg in particular is challenging mainly because of the rough on the right and the out of bounds, which has cost my friends and myself countless balls in the past. The worst golfer I have ever seen on this mightily and challenging course was my friend who has succeeded in scoring over 130 on two occasions with his worst being 145. This shows that although the more skilful golfer may prosper on this tight and tricky course any weaknesses in an inexperienced player will be highlighted and used against him. In all a enjoyable course and although my feelings are not as strong as that of the previous reviewer I still feel that it is an enjoyable and tricky course.

    Hereford Municipal golf course is of the highest standard I have ever played, the range of holes I believe is unparalleled in the western world and the par 5 dog leg is immensely challenging, is a test of nerves for even the most experienced professional golfer.
