What the club says: Braxted Park Golf Club was opened in 1952 and is situated in the mature grounds of the Braxted Park Estate. This gem of a parkland course is recognised as one of the best courses in the County and is a ‘must’ for the discerning golfer. The course consists of 9 holes has a par of 70 with a length of 5614 yards. The three par threes, two par fives and a unique par four means scoring below 70 is more difficult than it might at first seem. Possibly the greatest threat to the unwary golfer comes in the form of tightly bunkered approaches and subtly contoured greens.

A pleasant surprise if a little pricey

Been aware of this course for several years without playing it. Finally played it on the spur of the moment and what a very pleasant surprise. There's only 9 holes so not a massive amount of variety although very different tee positions for front/back nine change how you approach each hole. I've played many courses in Essex and Braxted has some of the most picturesque of any I've played - some really gorgeous looking holes. You could be forgiven for thinking you were somewhere other than rural Essex. Greens played very well although a little slow due to recent heavy rain. Rough was slightly long but not too punishing. Bunkers looked fine although I was fortunate enormously that to never have to play out of one to really tell.
Only disappointments: a) the price. ?15 for nine holes at half 3 in the afternoon means there are much better deals around. b) the clubhouse. Homely sort of feel to what is basically a large shed. Not a lot of options for food/drink before or after the round. I've been told the course is closed at weekends so the owner can play it with friends and family. If that's true it's in remarkable shape for a course that clearly doesn't need to run at a profit. Shame, because this course has expansion possibilities and the potential to be one of the very best courses in the area.

Very nice 9 hole course, with some long and challenging holes. Limited clubhouse facilities. Little more expensive than some. Not open at weekends.

bring your boat!
nice setting, friendly, not too expensive but definatley has very little Wow factor!
i would play it once maybe twice but probably not again after unfortunately,
it is a very short course which with only 9 holes so its not somewhere you would stay a member for long
but a pleasent day out.

Lovely parkland 9 hole course. Can be played by visitors on weekdays at £11.00 for 9 holes. Ideal for a quick round after work.
