Henlade Hill JOG

Emma running up Henlade Hill

Ray and Sue Toomer certainly made the most of Henlade Hill small venue though it is, with a variety of interesting courses.

Condition report

Poc Post

of Permanent courses

This page documents the latest known condition of each course! It relies on everyone's cooperation to ensure the courses stay runnable.

Most of these courses were developed in collaboration with other parties and hence the club does not have full control over the courses' upkeep.
