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.

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.

Pace OF Play

Having recently played two rounds there, I managed to get held up by two 4 ball groups. I Timed that first group on one par 5 hole and they took 25 minutes to play one hole and they remained blissfuly unaware of the backlog that this pace was casuing in terms of baklogo and que of players behind them. This pace of play is unnacceptable on public course.

Long challenging course

Very nice course and challenging round spoilt only by a "No buggies after 1.30pm" policy which precluded a friend with MS from playing and, presumably, ever being able to benefit from the Twilight discount. Seems unfair paticularly as Course Pro used buggy to zoom round about 6pm!!

Greens played inconsistently as some where quite water logged and others dry and fast.
Fairways were in good condition but players need to repair their divots .
