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.

Great Golf break

Played the west and east courses over two days as part of a golf break with a group of mates. Courses unfortunately wet due to the excessive rain we have been having but it didn?t spoil the overall experience.

Lots of room off the tee but no semi. If you miss the fairway it’s quite long rough and then really heavy rough. Greens were very slow.

great venue

The course was generally in very good condition , some of the greens had an issue ( but we had been warned ) but the variety of the holes and the layout of the course make it a must play

course ok resort awful

We went for the all inclusive golf and dinner option. On arrival the room was not very clean, balcony was filthy with huge cobwebs, and a filthy table.

Dinner was the worst resort dinner i have ever experienced. Three mains to choose from braised beef and mash, pasta and a mushroom sauce and the smallest piece of fish with over cooked vegetables - we gave it back. Dessert had ice cream which was made from powder - we gave it back. The contents of the meals could not have cost more than £2.5

We asked to se the restaurant manager who was apparently busy but would come soon to see us , we finally left when he did not show up and though we left our room number for him to contact us we were never contacted.

We managed to negotiate to skip dinner the second day in exchange for a burger and a sandwich. Hardly a great deal for us , but i would never try dinner there again.

Front of house staff were very friendly,

Course was a good layout , but needed some TLC, bare fairways and rough meant we played prefer lies in June.

Overall a really poor place to go......

Weekend Break

Our annual break to ESN was booked when Lockdown was lifted. Despite only being able to get late tee times for Saturday and sunday we felt the previous visits where we were very impressed warranted this irritation. Leading up to our weekend we did try and get earlier times but were firmly told "We are fully booked". We decided to get there at 11am on the Saturday and have Lunch before we checked in and played. when trying to check in we were told there was no booking on the system but luckily we had the paper work to prove otherwise, at this point we were told they had had a system problem were they had lost some Bookings :-(
The East course greens were poor by ESN standards and the rough was thick and juicy. On many holes there was no semi rough which made the course even more challenging. The west course was the same other than the greens were in Better condition.
if you have been here before you might be a little disappointed if its your first time you might not be overly impressed.
finally, the staff were not back to there best and seemed a bit slow on a few occasions

Great challenge for higher handicappers

Played the East course twice over the weekend and really enjoyed the course. The greens were a little inconsistent having been recently spiked but assume this is not the normal condition you?d expect.
We did find the pro shop staff not to be the most welcoming and hotel staff were a little disorganised but then it was the first weekend after lockdown so expect they just need to get back into the swing of things.
Excellent practice areas, with separate greens for putting, chipping and putting and approach play, along with a full driving range.

Thoroughly enjoyed the round on the East Course. Great test for all levels of players, with multiple tee iptions. The greens were not up to the same quality as the rest of the course, but would definitely love to go back, especially if the greens are in top condition.

Too Muddy

This course should have been closed. The greens were in bad shape and the course was way too muddy basically unplayable if not on fairway.

Good couple of days

We enjoyed a two night, 3 rounds package in the spring of 2020. The courses were great, the deal we got was good value for money and I?d go again. The only blip was the evening meals which weren?t great and the member of staff (manager?) in the pro shop who wasn?t especially helpful or welcoming.

Mud Bath - terrible greens

This course has drainage issues, it was a mud bath. Balls disappear into the mud on every hole. The greens were in very poor condition with hollotining depressions on all of them. Might be a good summer course but avoid this course in the winter. The course should have been closed, but they will take your money in any case.
