What the club says: We play on the Chingford Golf Course. It is the oldest course in Essex, dating back to 1886 and believed to be designed by James Braid. The original layout was different. It once spread all the way to the Epping New Road and some of the old teeing areas can be found behind the Warren Wood Pub.

This is a public course, situated on common land. It has been managed by the Corporation of London for over 120 years. We are one of three clubs who are based on the course and who enjoy regular tee times in order to play weekly competitions and matches against other clubs.

Beautiful course bedded within Epping Forest. Sadly some fairways are very dry and hard

Tranquil course surrounded by Epping Forest

Chingford Golf Course on the borders between East London and Essex offers straight forward no frills golf. It?s holes are varied often rising and falling on undulating fairways. Not many bunkers and greens can be a bit patchy but overall greens are well maintained. If you can?t hit straight or shape shots round the dog legs you will lose plenty of balls but it is well worth the visit for the peace and quiet and forest wildlife that abounds.

Always nice to play here, each hole is very different. Greens in top condition for a public course. Bargain at £10.

An interesting course in Epping Forest. Some long holes and the greens were in good condition. Fairways a bit mossy but it is a forest course. The cafe is great.

A friendly club with a caf? that serves great cakes.

I haven't play Chingford for over thirty years. In those days you had to wear something red. The course is a good test of golf with some tricky dog legs. The Par 3s are no pushover. I will definitely play there again.

Decent public pay and play course. As of April 21 2018, in really good shape, has a few elevation changes, wind often plays a part, I find it really challenging to get the ball round, playing to my current handicap. Thought I had a chance at the weekend, getting back to 1 over after 17..........So the 7 I took at the last was a treat, I look forward to trying again. Luke, in the pro shop is a very decent guy, and has been very helpful to our groups whenever we play here.

Only paid ?10 for the round, considering how much rain there had been overnight the course was quite good condition, look forward to playing again when it's drier.
