Best greens

Played here on a Sunday morning on a 652 tee time.The fairways were nicely cut and the rough wasn't to punishing but what surprised me the most was how good the greens was.No bare patches and they ran true and actually very fast.Probably best greens I have played on this year because a lot of places ive been to the greens have been very poor due to the fact the first 4 months of this year was loads of rain then 4 months of scorching sun.Will be back to play again very soon

Played on a really hot day but was the best condition course we have played over the last 5 weeks. The greens were in excellent shape, all the fairways had grass on them,a little brown but grass, the staff were very welcoming and we had a great round despite the 30 degree heat

The course is in much better condition than expected. The greens are still soft and run true, tee boxes are also in good condition. Tricky course but enjoyable.

cant beat twilight price of £12 for 18 holes and a pint.

Better than expected

Having not played this course for over a year I was sceptical before the round. £12 for 18 holes and a drink (twilight) was hard to turn down though. I was pleasantly surprised, the fairways are solid but not as barren as many other courses around at the moment. The tee boxes are the best I have played on since the heat wave started and the greens are soft and quick. Did hear that they were putting money into the course and you can tell. Also the clubhouse is having an extensions so will be good to come back when that has been completed. I'd recommend playing if you are in the area - still a tricky course with lots of hills so its tough to control the ball on the fairway at the moment.

A challenging course in good condition

An absolute bargain for a pay and play course. Challenging holes and good greens.

Worth a visit

Excellent course with greens in very good condition, the club house is undergoing some extension but in general a very good course with very good driving range and practice area.

Too slow

Fabulous course in excellent condition spoilt by the pace of play. Really needs a marshal on the course to ensure players keep up with the group ahead or let faster groups through.

Getting back to its best!

I have to be honest and say that Basildon Golf course fell off my radar about 10 years ago, and at the time I was playing here almost every week, but the course and clubhouse was not being looked after properly, so I almost just forgot the place existed. All I can say is a very well done to the new owners, the course was back to its "Pristine" best. Looked gorgeous and still remains one of the most challenging courses to play in Essex, I will be back.
