Highly Recommended 2020

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.

Great value

Having played this course a few times now I must admit I have been more impressed every time…

First time the greens were okay but the last two they have been in excellent nick and the fairways seem to have improved as well.

Tight layout which prioritises well placed tee shots rather than distance which gives nice approaches into either raised or down hill greens

Greens are small as expected with parkland courses but this presents a good challenge, running fast too made putting difficult, particularly down hill

Great course

Wide open course, good for beginners as it is very forgiving. Decent food if you get there early. Only issue is the the dog walkers, they come out of nowhere and they don’t pay attention to what is happening around them

Dodge the dog walkers

Standing on the first tee waiting to hit our first shots and there are 3 people walking their dogs standing in the middle of the fairway chatting and had no intention of moving until we shouted.On the second of the Par 3s our last player went to hit his tee shot and two ladies just walked in front of the green without a care in the world so he set up to play again and another three then followed...Its so frustrating dogs everywhere on the front 9.The course is nice and challenging but just be prepared for the interruptions

A very nice parkland course, plenty of interesting holes with not one bunker. A very enjoyable round for £17 at the weekend.
