Lovely track even on an awful day

Course really looks great. Greens are in fantastic condition. A lot of thinking holes where position is way more important than length. Warm welcome in the clubhouse and excellent service.

Fast Greens, tough in the wind

Lovely course in north Essex. The greens are some of the best around, with tree lines fairways being straight off the tee is crucial. Layout is good with different elements faced on both nines.
Staff were great and the food was excellent. Recommend playing this course, when there is no wind - it was tough playing into the wind.

Great Challenging Course

Played here on a society day and when I realised it?s the course behind where I used to live I was very excited to play. Playing off 3/4 handicaps made it tough scoring also with the tight quick greens makes it vital to ensure fairways are hit. With a number of holes sponsored the course is in fantastic shape and would highly recommend.

Friendly Club and attractive course

A mature course with some challenging holes - mainly flat bit well set up with good use if bunkers natural trees and dog-legs. Good test if golf.

Felt like a park land course but good to play. Straightforward, and felt like it should be possible to put a good score together, but if you stray off the tee then you lose shots.

What a wonderful course. Little room for hooks and slices but no lost balls . Played when other local courses were closed because of the weather. No temporary greens or tees. Best in Essex . Recommend Braintree GC highly
