What the club says: The Blakes Championship course, designed by renowned course architect Howard Swan, is best described as an inland links. The layout and undulations of the course are totally unique to the area with rolling fairways and sleepered bunkers giving the feel of a traditional seaside links.

Could be a lot better,

Suffering from current weather conditions (08-22), tee boxes very dry and very patchy fairways aeration/drainage slots big enough for ball to go into, greens ok but slow. Variety of holes including short (106 yellow t) par 3 island green. Short par 5's long par 4's.

Like the course alot. Great layout of holes. Only one negative, greens are going brown already at end of May. Could do with watering during the night to get back green again.

Needs work.

The bunkers need work, course conditions ok for the time of year. 8th hole par three with an island green a bit of a gem.

Good draining course

We played at Blake's as it boasts it's the driest course in Essex and after a couple of very boggy rounds we thought we'd give it a go. I don't know if it is the driest in Essex but it was very good only a couple of wet patches. Greens were good too.
