What the club says: This renowned Essex course of undulating parkland character is undoubtedly one of the finest in the county and whilst occupying only 99 acres, is nevertheless a challenging 18 holes with a par of 71 and measuring 6296 yards from the competition tees. Even from the forward tees at 5,962 yards it is a fine test of golf. Features of the course are its small greens and deceptive borrows. It is a course that one never tires of playing.

Disappointing

Expected it to be a top members club but I’d be disappointed if I was a member here paying the fees reported. Greens looked diseased. Tee boxes not level not manicured in between holes. Played here years back and greens were fast and true. If you can get a cheap guest rate worth a go otherwise not worth the green fee

A cracker

This is a terrific course. The first is a real test of length and accuracy, but persevere because it's well worth it. In superb condition despite some horrible weather in the weeks leading up to our round. Very welcoming in the clubhouse too. Not as expensive as you might think either.

Enjoyed but has its faults

Despite the considerable amount of work underway on the course and seemingly stifling encroachment of the garish multi-millionaire properties that encircle the course, our day at Chigwell was really enjoyable. This owed much to the layout of the course – both playable and challenging – and the welcoming nature of the people. The starter was a lovely man, the staff were friendly and the members chatty. The club seems to have made a conscious effort to be much less stuffy – certainly more relaxed than when we were last there, 8 years ago.

I sincerely hope the club survives the ardent ambitions of its neighbours who seem intent on expanding their own little empires and choking this golfing oasis on the London / Essex boarder.
