The first time I've visited this course as part of a society day on 24 July.
The welcome and attention to the detail was excellent.
despite it raining for the whole round, the experience was great. The course isn't too difficult but does have some memorable holes requiring good strategy.
The fairways and tees were in good condition and the greens better than that.
I can't opine on the bunkers as I never went in any...!
We are certainly planning to re-visit this place as it would be good to play with the weather being somewhat kinder.
Well done to all those involved in the place.
Played the course last Friday with 9 other golfers, our handicaps range from +1 to 28.
The course was in good condition considering the amount of rain we have had recently. All the greens were open & playing quite fast, most of the tee's were also open (about 6 had mats on them but they were in good nick).
There are some interesting holes on the course where position off the tee is vital but it is a fair challenge for golfers of all levels. The members are as friendly here as I have found at any golf club which makes for a very enjoyable round.
We took up the 'Winter Special' which includes coffee & bacon sandwich on arrival a round of golf & Chef's stew & dumplings after the round, the food & service can only be described as excellent!
I would recommend this to all golfers. We shall play here again soon!
I played on a Sunday afternoon after a club competition. I enjoyed a terrific lunch with my wife and children prior to the round.
The club manager went to some effort to find some members to join in a round with me so as to avoid me playing on my own.
The course itself looks well cared for. Some tricky long par 3's and some shots that require a bit of thought due to tight fairways or gaps between trees. All though the course is "young" and landing on another fairway is not the end of a good round it is a good course to test your accuracy on. Some of the greens lie in behind lines of trees that take some accurate shooting to get past.
Greens seem fine and it was one of the drier Essex courses I have played on during the winter. (My waterproofs were dry all the way to the bottom)
Tip: Save something for the 18th, a tight tee shot between some big trees and a fariway that slopes up and to the right can make for some tricky shots.
