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.

Recovering from course maintenance

Played the West Course at ESN 3 days after it re-opened following course maintenance. Found it to be in far better condition than anticipated with greens running relatively true apart fro the odd bobble. Obviously take a couple of weeks to recover fully, but nevertheless in a good playable condition.

Trying to be something it’s not

I’ve played at ESN many times and enjoy the courses but it’s clinging onto the fact it hosted some European tour events 30 years ago and still thinking they can charge £££ for average condition golf courses however today I encountered rules I thought were long gone in golf. I arrived with my 14 year old daughter who is now showing an interest in golf so I thought we’d go to the range at ESN and maybe use the excellent practice facilities. I went into the pro shop to buy a token and was looked up and down and told I had to be wearing proper golf attire to use the range?! I was wearing a t-shirt and golf shorts but apparently for ESN that’s not good enough. When I asked why I was told ‘that’s the rules’ in a way that’s suggests that’s common practice for any driving range. I’ve played golf all over the world at some excellent venues and NEVER heard of that. I played at Gleneagles last week and used the range whilst wearing a similar outfit and they couldn’t have been more friendly yet this time pot dinosaur of a club doesn’t want to promote golf as a fun, relaxed sport for everyone, it wants to think this is still the 1970s and we should all be wearing plus 4’s and jackets. Such a shame I wasn’t allowed to practice with my daughter. I will never go back.

West

I played the West today after enjoying the East course yesterday. I preferred the West and can see why it's the Members course. Both courses are similar in length and style but the West is more of a test, narrower, more trees, holes are bit more interesting and you feel it's just a slightly better course. Good drives are required on certain holes in order to keep your ball.

Always a pleasure playing ESN GC, went out as 2 ball around 3:30 and had the course to ourselves until the last few holes. Sand in bunkers a little inconsistent but greens and fairways ok. very enjoyable

Haven't played at this venue in many years but it was great to reacquaint myself with the course and the location the greens and course in general was still showing signs of the early season maintenance work that was carried out after the winter months

Nice layout

I guess at this time of year on a resort course you cant expect perfection, but some of the greens were a bit bare which was a shame.

Caddy team are very good and will look after you and your clubs.

Love the course

All day rain yesterday but you would not have known it. The greens are recovering nicely from being tined and sanded 3 weeks ago and were soft but not too soft. A few squelchy bits but not too bad. Playing well
