Batchwood Hall golf course is an 18 hole parkland course of 6,468 yards. Built in 1936 it was designed by J H Taylor, five times Open Champion and the first Englishman to win the Open. St Albans Council purchased the Hall and surrounding land in 1935 for the purpose of opening a restaurant and a public golf course. J H Taylor, five times Open Champion and the first Englishman to win the Open, was engaged to design the course. It was very likely that Samuel Ryder, of Ryder Cup fame and past Councillor and Mayor of St Albans, was instrumental in persuading the Council to hire Mr. Taylor since the two appeared to know each other well. J H Taylor captained the winning Ryder Cup team in 1933. The 18 hole course Taylor designed was widely considered as one of the finest municipal courses in the south of England
