Fantastic Challenging Course

First time playing at Blake's and was thoroughly impressed with the course. Lots of open spaces to reward the good shots but plenty of hidden hazards to punish the wayward ones. The island green on the 8th is truly one of the better holes in Essex.

Ideal for the ReStart

After 84 days, needed somewhere forgiving what could be a lot of rust. Few trees on the links & lot of sun & gentle wind. Never held up despite the course being full. Ideal

Good Course but Very tough

Playing in rain make this course very tough to score and most of their Par3 is over 170 Yards from Yellow. Not bad to have such a nice golf course near central London. The course is Flat but no buggy facility

Society Day

Greens have just been spiked, but we knew this before we played and therefore a reduction in green fees.

Great value for money

What a great local course this is and excellent value for money. Not very forgiving for wayward shots and I seem to lose at least half a dozen balls each round but that's not the course's fault. Greens are a bit bobbly but still good enough.

Good course to practice

First time to play the course was very quiet, good value tee off 3:30 midweek and was only £10 for 18 holes. The greens are poor and the bunkers have very little sand but is a good course to go and try out some different shots to improve your game.

Potential to be great

Has the potential to be a great course, given it caters to both beginners and and the more advanced, who looking for a reasonable challenge. The problem is the course condition - greens and fairways. The greens were unplayable, the worst I have experienced and the fairways were not kept in a way I would say was comparable to the price.
