What the club says: Ballards Gore Golf Club, is an 18 hole Golf Club situated 2 miles from Rochford and is set in 110 acres of countryside. We are one of the longest courses in Essex, 6769 yards with a par of 73 and is set between the historic village of Canewdon which was renowned for its witchcraft and Stambridge near Rochford in South East Essex. The course offers a truly impressionable and challenging game of golf. There is also a large practice area for pitching and driving as well as a putting green situated near the clubhouse.

Taking the micky today

I've played Garons a few times over the years and enjoyed it, from the days when it was just starting to a more mature course now. The three nines are interesting and with the wind and some water quite challenging. But...on Good Friday, they packed the course and charged way over the odds. I realise they may be trying to raise extra income but to do this with blatant disregard for paying customers is a poor show. Waiting 20-25 minutes at the 10th, and then easily 5-10 minutes on every hole from therein spoilt it. Poor Show Garons.

A good varied course, some interesting holes with some long par 4s, only nets to warm up in no range

First time playing I really enjoyed. Lots of different hole shapes and lots of big humps on the fairways. Will come back

Nice little course

I played with a friend who is a member. Some really great holes and a few boring ones but all in all a nice little local course if you?re in the area or looking to play somewhere new. Friendly members and good facilities.

Good local track

Reasonably priced, greens too firm at the moment! Deseprate for some rain or to water them, very hard to get anything to hold at all!

Nice course, lovely place to visit

Nice flat course, quite long but the fairways run a bit. Good greens, fair tee boxes. Lovely clubhouse, decent little shop. Friendly staff. Really enjoyed the day.

Worth the price

Very good course but long and challenging. Well looked after but can be pricey, can be found on GolfNow.co.uk to get cheap round.

Great course in a woodland setting that is in excellent condition and at a very reasonable price, I played on a Thursday which is seniors day so the pace of play was a little slow.

Amazing

The overall layout of the course was brilliant, can’t see how people give it bad reviews on here friendly staff and a greenkeeper who obviously knows what he is doing, greens were mid pace but with the weather we’ve had what do we expect, was a little untidy around the lakes but you can see they’re working on that, bar staff were very friendly! Both pros were helpful chatty and made sure we were off the right few so we didn’t get held up! Not everyday you get that! Would recommend to anyone for the money there’s not much better.
