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.

Society Day at Ballards Gore

13 of us descended from all parts of London and beyond, organised by myself in Essex. Ballards is along a flat course with a reasonable amount of different challenges. The team at BGGC was exemplary, the rolls etc were good and the service was fantastic. The professional guided us through the course and the dos and don't and we all had a great time, won by the only female participant on the day (42pts) Well done Ballards, the course was good, tidy, and challenging.

Links Course - Food Terrible

Have played the Lakes course numerous times but five decided to book Links course for a change because it was cheaper.
Very pleased with the course, fronl nine a little samey but back nine challenging and visually appealing.
The real downside to the experience is the pre food and coffee expereince which were terrible. Service great but the quality of the food and drink were at best poor. So much so when we re book to come back we are going for rolls etc in Maldon or Tiptree. The golf is very good however....

Mr G

Face don't fit then your not welcome. Just had a really bad experience at Ballards.
Staff where really nice but that's where it stopped.

Played many of times with friends who are members and up till today not had bad word to say.
But today

No marshaling for slow play.
Golf course could do with a cut. Super long in first cut and fairway.

Slow play.

The offer to play though was not acknowledged at all by members if front.
2x4 balls (waiting time was round 10 minutes)
Playing as a 2 ball myself today.

Must of had there blinkers on today.

3x 2 balls gave up and walked in due to wait time behind me. We was the 4th to give up.

Didn't stop to see of Beer was cold. Although could of done with 1.
