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.

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

A worthwhile visit

The course was in excellent condition despite recent fairway tining. I thought the greens were excellent and are very much part of this course?s defence. Raised relatively small contoured greens are challenging and in excellent condition. We were well looked after for a very reasonable fee. I would certainly visit again.

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.

I liked Abridge

A good course, well kept. Enjoyed the round in the sunshine. Would go back if the price on TeeOffTimes is right.

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

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.

Reviewed this last year and stand by my comments on the course, very good, tough, excellent greens.
However, not such a positive experience this time round with all the ancillary bits to the round. Clubhouse looks like a mini mfi from the outside, getting shabby. Bins overflowing. Young Assistant pro gave me the wrong code for the visitors changing room, wasn't interested in helping me get in other than sending me to another door that was locked. Followed on the front 9 by greenstaff with a strimmer and leaf blower playing tunes in unison, oblivious to anyone trying to play a shot. Why not work round the course backwards? Worse, and this happened on my last round here, ran into the modern cancer of golf, several senior 4 balls, who had started on the back 9. Last 6 holes took as long as the previous 12. All of which left a sour taste. Staff training and better organisation required.

Played this course on a Monday. Thought it was £45 for a weekday but turned out to be £30 which is always nice. Staff were friendly and tried to help out in any way. There were alot of different hole types which was very interesting. Par 5's were not that long, hitting my second shot in at 180 yards on one (which I eagled :-) )

Overall I thought it was goood but, if I was playing on a weekend at the price of £75 i would say I would have been dissapointed. For that money I would want better than standard greens and fairways which on this day the course wasnt.

We play a lot of coarses in Essex and Kent and this has to be up there with the best its in great condition although very pricey we paid £135.00 for a four ball on a wednesday morning .The coarse is very tricky and good coarse management is needed and hitting your handicap will need take some doing .The greens and fairways are in great condition ,if you dont mind paying the price then mark this coarse on your list of coarses to play .
