What the club says: The Burstead Golf Club was designed by the late Patrick Tallack in September 1991. It was laid to seed in the spring of '92 and opened for play in July 1993. Although relatively new, the course already shows maturity beyond its years, with the greens in particular establishing an excellent reputation.

Good track

Toothill is a great little county course, with challenging holes and easy holes. The par-3?s are really good, especially those that have water on them. The greens are really good, fast, but need a little bit of water to make them more receptive.It is a great value for money course from Monday to Thursday (?25), but no Twilight rounds which is disappointing. Friday Saturday and Sunday I think the course is too expensive compared to local courses in the area such as Burstead.

As a former member of the club, I can only say that the course was in the best condition I can ever remember. Congratulations to the green staff in particular.

The course is in great condition, the green keepers are doing some good work. Not the longest course but good course management is key. A chance to use every club in the bag. Staff are friendly and helpful. I don’t know any other members so some form of introduction would be good for general play.

This is a fantastic course, in good shape and each hole is different. Greens looking to be fast too. Only stipulation is having just joined the welcome wasn’t massively warm. No option to meet other members to get games/join in with swindles etc.

Truly one of the best courses in essex. Every hole is different and challenging. Requires thought and that makes it entertaining. Over lockdown they have done some fantastic work. Greens in great shape and look to be very fast over the hotter months. Very proud to be a member here

Excellent course

Lockdown has helped this course re-emerge as one of the best courses around. A real thinkers course with some very tough challenges and no 2 holes the same.
Only blemish is when joining in that new members not treated at all well - no introductions to others, no invites to existing groups / comps, no possibility of joining existing weekend swindles (all full apparently) and you’re just ignored with your only option to play rounds alone. Tried raising with the Pro and the committee - no one cared.

Played today and the course was in fantastic condition, the greens were excellent. I have played West Essex, Theydon Bois, Stapleford abbots & Nazeing since the lockdown ended and The Burstead is on a different level.

Awesome for time of year !!

Played on 2/1/21 and given the endless rain over the last few weeks and the time of year the course was superb. Virtually zero surface water from flooding, tees and fairways all in good shape and the greens were fantastic. Not much more needs to be said, great staff, great course, great value. They obviously know what they’re doing at the burstead !!!

First time enjoyable experience

First time I've played the course and it was in burning heat. Some of the fairways are poor because of previous flooding and the heat but club have a plan to fix this winter. Greens in good shape and very friendly welcome. Enjoyable and would play again.

Was good apart from the old slow players

Course was ok tee boxes and greens were in excellent condition the fairways were shocking. The course is actually really good and the price £20 not too bad. However did not get to the finish round as the two groups in front were so slow and they did not let anyone through, meant that we had to stop with 2 holes remaining in order to get to my shift on time.
