One of the best in Essex

Simply one of the best in the county. Not particularly long but very tricky set up. Wonderful greens. Tee boxes very tidy. Will be looking great when the weather improves. Definitely considering joining.

The best in Essex

Finally found a great course in Essex. Immaculate greens and tee boxes. Fairways decent, not sure the fairway yard ages were accurate. A difficult course that puts a premium on putting the ball in the right place.

Don't forget your Driver

Deceptively long course, if you don't hit long then second shots into the green are 180+. Not a bad thing as it tests your driving. Greens very well paced, ball rolls lovely. Fairways patchy but thats the same everywhere this time of year. Bunkers could do with some work. A number of holes you have to drive over the previous green, can hold up play.
We played twilight and the members refused to let a two ball through at any stage, sometimes we were on the tee with a four ball. Some work to be done here.
Staff very friendly, particularly the pro shop assistant. Bellisima.

Lovely old Golf Course

Lovely true - fast greens. Some parts of the fairways were quite dry. The tee's are in great condition and the course was a delight to play.

Marvellous Golf Course

Very well established course (1907). Definitely a thinkers course. There had been a deluge the night before but was still in fantastic condition. Greens were quick but true, fairways were running pretty well. Plenty of interesting holes. Staff were helpful and attentive.

A very well laid out but compact course rewards a good shot and punishes a bad one but not too extreme.

Played the course on Saturday 12 May 2012 with a member. Quite a friendly club. The grass had been left quite long in all areas, probably because of the heather rain over the past couple of weeks. Still playing in quite good condition. Interesting holes which, although they are quite close together, all seem separate. Lots of mature trees and different features on most holes. Well worth playing again.

Me (H 15) and my wife (H 29) played Colchester on 5th June. Pro was very friendly and club facilities are OK. Greens were a bit lush and slow in places, and quicker in others so a bit frustrating. Otherwise the course is in very good condition and a fair challenge - if a little short. The Par3's though are a good test.
We played on a 2-4-1 voucher so ended up as £21 per person which is good value. Would not have been good value at £42 per round each!

Average

The Colchester golf course was not as well looked after as I thought it would be but still a quality course. We had to play off lots of temporary tees which is always disappointing but nobody?s fault I guess. The weather hasn?t been too bad up till now though.
