What the club says: Bishop's Stortford Golf Club is a traditional members' club with a warm welcome, it is situated on the eastern edge of Bishop's Stortford, with excellent access to the M11. An attractive, undulating parkland par 71 course of 6404 yards enhanced by a large variety of trees and flowering shrubs, it provides a challenging test for both average and low handicap golfers.



Most Helpful Review

I have played the course many times as i was previouslya member. I loved the layout of the course and the variety of holes, it's certainly a good challenge for any golfer.

The clubhouse is new, having been built after the members bought the club in 1993. It has excellent changing facilities and a large bar and dining area for functions/events.

The Pro is very accomodating and has a large stock of good brands along with a simulator or practice range to try them on.

The course has undergone some good changes in recent years to make it more challenging to the good golfers and fairer for the higher handicaps. The holes vary considerably as you go round, with the ninth and 18th coming back right to the clubhouse. the greens are usually quick and trueno matter what the weather.

It's really easy to find, being just off the M11 by Stansted Airport, but not so noisy as to put you off your game, unless the red Arrows do a fly past. - Feb 20 2012


Golfshake Team Review

Lovely course.
It was my 4th round of the day as part of a charity event so I didn't enjoy it as much as I'd like to, and it was tipping down.

Nice variety of long and short par 4's and par 3's. Very scenic in places too. Fairways in excellent condition and the greens were very fast, even after the rain.

Its tough to get a round if your not a member or know a member but if you get the chance then give it a go.

Would go back. - Jul 10 2011

Brilliant course very challenging
One of the best course I've played as an amateur. Would highly recommend to all and the club members are very welcoming. Particularly the captain Stuart and the vice captain Rob.

A lovely cause that is well maintained and fun to play. Some difficult holes once you are out of position. Greens are playing true and was very happy with the whole atmosphere. Very helpful staff in Pro Shop.

Course in excellent shape, albeit quite firm for 3rd week in May. Most hoies required shots to land before the green. Took a little adjusting too but did not spoil a pleasant experience overall.

A decent course with some fine, challenging par 4's. Course was well kept but starting to get a little heavy in places so imagine it would suffer a bit in winter (winter greens already being prepped too) the greens had also been recently sanded but did not overly affect the roll.

I didn't see the course at it's best as the trees aren't in leaf yet, however the course still looks good. The greens are just suffering a bit at the end of a winter; they were a bit too soft and there were a lot of footprints around the holes. The tees, fairways and rough were all in good shape.

Jay M rated 4 out of 5 - Dec 11 2014

Played after recent rainy period locally. Some fairways wet underfoot but no standing water and I came off with clean shoes and trouser bottoms. Greens in excellent shape - all rolled true and fairly quickly. Course generally in good condition and a fair test of golf. Some stand-out holes esp closing two holes on each none holes. Short par 4 14th looks easy on the card, but a 6 there belies that - don't take liberties ! Great winter deal (18 holes and food). Well stocked pro shop with friendly helpful staff. Well worth a visit.

Not my favourite course although it is always in good condition and well kept. It's noisy due to the proximity of Stansted Airport and the M11. The 18th is nothing to look forward too with 2nd shot difficult unless your drive is well positioned! Bar and catering is always excellent.

Lovely golf course with interesting holes and in great condition.
The greens were running true and quick and were a pleasure to putt on.
We had a round and food for £29 which was a bargin, although, that offer has now finished.
The only let down for the club is the fact that they are situated at the end of the Stanstead Airport runway, and the continued aircraft noise was annoying.
