Very nice, tricky course
fantastic condition throughout. Quite a few narrow fairways and some well placed bunkers. Plus quite a few ditches.
Easy to score badly if not familiar with the course

One of Essex finest
Play hear once a year, one of my favourites, greens are nicely rolled and manicured. Some challenging Tee shots make this a great challenge. The food is always great.

A lovely drive to this course
A nice little gem this one. A few holes give you a challenge to lay up or try to drive. The food on our particular day was lovely sat outside having a BBQ and homemade puddings.

Harlow rated 4 out of 5 - Mar 17 2017

Very good layout and tough. Matts on many tees at present and they are nigh on impossible to get tees in which is disappointing. Greens are clearly being worked on and no doubt will get better but a tad scratchy and bare at present. Moving that to one side the course is a good test of golf and can't wait to return in the summer.

The course is drying out well with no temporary greens in operation. Opening shots are currently from mats on 11 holes but this gives an opportunity to play some of the more difficult long holes from a forward tee, giving mid-handicappers a chance to hit holes like the 4th and 6th in regulation.

Wow. Beautiful course in fantastic condition. You need both your driving and putting boots on to play well here and to be able to shape your drives both ways in order to avoid the ditches and tree trouble that abounds. Some holes need power other need to be well planned so that a judicious rescue off the tee may well be your best option.
Tough day but loved it!
