Brookmans Park Golf Club are hoping a new academy complex will provide a boost to budding players from the area.
Planning permission has been granted for the hi-tech facility which will incorporate state-of-the-art practice and teaching provision using PGA tour level technology.
It also comes with a large new professional shop.
They also undertook extensive research and planning, engaging with professional firms covering conservation, wildlife and ecology, to make sure all the plans are "in harmony with the environment".
A spokesman for the club said: "We see this as not only an enormous benefit for members but for everyone in the surrounding area, including Potters Bar and Hatfield.
"This will help provide all year-round exercise, whatever the weather, and will also help the club promote the sport to underrepresented segments including women, young people and the disabled."
They have also announced the appointment of Louis Dunn-Allen as their head greenkeeper.
