What the club says: Abridge Golf Club is a typical parkland layout set in the rolling countryside of Essex. At nearly 7,000 yards, this course is quite long and as a result is quite testing if played off the back tees. From the yellow tees, the course is much more playable for the higher handicap golfer, making it accessible to all golfers.

Don't get the hype

Never played here before, always been put off by the green tee price & had heard it was a little snobby, but found a cheap deal on TeeOffTimes and thought “why not”.

Immediate bad taste in the mouth when one of the guys I was playing with was told he had to buy and wear a pair of white socks from the pro shop because he’d worn black ones. We were the last group off all day, hardly anyone there, does it really matter? And people wonder why the numbers participating in golf are shrinking, this kind stuff puts people off.

The course, nice enough but nothing special, and a silly amount of holes that were the same: tee off from an elevated point down into a valley then hit next/approach shot up to an elevated tee that has drop offs. Course not in particularly good condition, bobbly greens and unkempt fairways, appreciate the extreme weather we’ve had this summer but cheaper, busier courses have coped better than this. Opening 8 holes are probably the most difficult I’ve played which isn't a complaint at all.



In short, I probably won’t return, especially with Toot Hill just down the road which is cheaper and vastly more interesting and in better condition than here.

Super course with a hint of snobbery

Course is in a great condition, fairways are green and the greens are running true. The only hole that was below par was the 11th hole with the fairway being patchy and brown and the greens un-kept. Other than that I could not fault the course and would recommend it to anyone as one of the best in Essex.
The only negative was the 'white socks' rule. A friend was told he could not wear his grey trainer socks as all socks have to be white, therefore he had to purchase a pair from the pro shop. A ridiculous rule in my opinion, seeing as we saw many other people walking around looking very scruffy.

Cracking course

Ok, so played here for the first time having heard such great reports.

Firstly, could have had a slightly better reception in the pro shop. Felt a bit stuffy if I'm being honest.

The course itself is in great condition and the greens were superb.
If you enjoy dog legs you will love the front 9. Holes 1,3,4,5 and 6 all dog leg leading to lots of blind tee shots which is difficult if you haven't played here before.

The back 9 does straighten out a bit more and rather enjoyable.

Its a great course, I would go back and would recommend it to golfer of all abilities.

Abridge golf club

Played Abridge during hot summer when lots of courses were dry. The greens had been watered in very good condition and were a good pace, some of the fairways had been watered to. This is not an easy golf course especially the first three holes on the back nine and felt I played well playing to my handicap.

Nice layout.

Played in early June. Always a nice layout and good condition. Greens were very slow although I guess there was little the ground staff could do if lots of rain previous week.

Badly in need of refurbishment

Nice course and friendly staff in the bar. Nice food. Overall though, considering the eye-watering green fees, the place really needs some improvement. The car park stinks of sewage or stagnant pond, the buggies max speed is about 5 mph, they emit fumes which are unpleasant but they do have USB charging sockets which is surprising. The staff in the Pro Shop were business-like without being particularly welcoming

Essex Gem

Played a charity day at this Henry Cotton designed course which is a good challenge in the countryside with peacocks running around each hole. Most holes tree lined Large greens and tees kept in good condition.

Will be great in the summer

Played on a Sunday afternoon the week after all the rain. Very very wet under foot. No fairways cut so quite long grass. Greens were patchy. Very hilly and lots of dog leg holes . Good pace of play considering the conditions. ?22 each of the net. Defiantly play again but when it's dryer. I think it could be great dry. Good atmosphere in the pro shop.

Not as good as last year

The course clearly doesn't soak up the rain well. Although it had rained for much of the last 2 weeks the previous few days had been dry but this course was almost unplayably wet. Greens not in great condition either with signs of disease. Shame because this course was stunning last year. Will give it another try after a dry spell

First time playing here and had a friendly welcome in the pro shop, car park was very busy and later found out there was a club match going on after us. Fairways in places were very soft so expect a few plugged balls. Greens were well kept and good speed. Very busy but didn?t affect pace of play too much, we played through a four ball once which held things up a bit bit but overall pace was good (we were a three ball). Can?t comment on food and drink as we didn?t use the clubhouse. Cost ?30 mid day tee time on a Sunday. Forgiving course but will be better once it dries out a bit. Couldn?t practice before our round as the driving range was closed which was disappointing.

Wet n windy

Not the best conditions to play golf as previous days of torrential rain left couse very wet in places. Having said that, the greens all ran true and were no problem although very very soft. I imagine them to be very quick in summertime. Enjoyed playing this up and down course for the first time and look forward to visiting in warmer and drier times.
