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.

Blakes Essex Bad Greens and Unwelcoming

Blakes was a massive let down the surroundings were fine. We played in a 4 ball with a 3 and all 2's behind us. So although there were several marshals out on the course nobody thought to pair the 2's up so the course flowed better. We let the 3 and two of the 2 balls through, On the 11th we were challenged by the captain for slow play which was unfair as we were frustrated ourselves that we were being held up once we let players through, which wouldn't happen if they managed the course better. We were also unable to get breakfast as the chef came in late and when we asked about lunch the chef was on a break. I will definitely not be playing Blakes again. - Oct 6 2017

Best deal for Golfers
Great welcome from reception and bar. Buggies only £10 ? The course, off the white tees is challenging. The greens could be better, but not as bad as I have read in other reviews. No problem with the rest of the course. The elements could make a round difficult, due to the open surroundings. Once finished, Afternoon Tea, superb. Thanks for very good day for only £17 each.

Good value for money
Considering the price I would have to say its a decent course but the greens leave much to be desired. They were slow, bumpy and virtually unplayable at times.
Overall it was a good round on a decent course.
