What the club says: Both our championship courses were designed by Robert E Cupp, one of Jack Nicklaus’s course architects. The East Course was specifically designed with championship golf in mind. Measuring 7138 yards from the gold tees, this is a formidable test of golf. Unlike the West, the East has two loops of nine holes bringing you back to the Clubhouse after each nine. The West Course was formally known as ‘The Members Course’,and is often regarded as the more scenic of the two courses, but is certainly tighter and more undulating. Surprisingly at 7154 yards it is slightly longer than the East.

Nice flat course

Nice flat course , not too testing but a good practice. The last two boles are tough to par as an 18 handicapper

Two challenging courses

Second time I've played the course and even off the tee of the day the East course was a challenge with a strong wind into on the first 3 holes.
Course layout is great with some tricky greens which were above average speed.

Superb championship course

Long challenging course off blue tees. Generous fairways so good driving course. Greens large with plenty of undulation and lightning fast. Well designed classy course. Good value on twighlight rate

Nice golf club. Two courses both worth a visit.

Played here with large society. Decent hotel, evening meal OK, great breakfasts. East and West courses differ in standard but both are very good with some really interesting holes.

Lovely Course

Lovely course, very friendly staff and excellent facilities.
The only downside is getting to and from the course which can be testing if stuck behind a tractor.

Always a challenge

Played the West Course which, as ever, was in good condition. Don't stray from the fairway or semi, as you will have a lost ball. No chance of finding it in 3 minutes.

A more "UK" style 18 holes, an intriguing set of 9 holes on each side of the road that are seamless. Good layout of risk and reward, favourite challenges p3/p4/p5 were the 3rd, 18th and 12th respectively. To absolutely be played again!

Two Day Stay

First visit here and really impressed by whole set up. Played West on Sunday and the East on Monday. Condition of both courses fantastic even though some bunkers flooded from Friday. Testing greens. Nice rooms and great food. So great value overall. Would definitely return.

So quiet - Its a shame - Great course

Played the West course at ESN , the old members course. In great fettle. Green super slick and conditions just perfect, which is more than can said about my game!!!! The 2nd cut of rough has been cut back so not as brutal as the last time I played. A very good test with plenty of interesing holes. My colleague compared it to the PGA at Belfry and had to agree after 2nd hole. Well worth waiting till twilight rates kick in.

Lovely course with some challenging holes

Had to abandon the round at 6th on previous day due to course being closed due to heavy rain which persisted all day/evening but you would not believe it as course was dry with no standing water next morning.

Really enjoyable round with some interesting holes, although some bunkers were GUR.

Shout out to the caddie team who looked after our clubs,bags, trolley's during our stay.

Just played 5 rounds over both courses. Condition is a real issue, especially the greens. Very poor. We were told to play off the whites which makes the courses very boring. A much better test for the average golfer off the blues. We were allowed to use these one day but told not to the next. Apparently some members had complained. Could be a great venue if course condition was better and members / management were a little more accommodating to paying visitors.
