Excellent course

Played with member and local. Excellent course, greens sanded but true putting. Layout perfect. Tricky holes but so enjoyable, thoroughly recommended to play this one. Thank you to the two seniors for a brilliant day.

One of Club Companies excellent courses

As a member of Benton Hall, we often play other Club Companies golf courses. The Essex is close to where we live and we play this on a regular basis.
Lot flatter than Benton Hall but has it's own difficult holes. The first is always a difficult start with a lake offering the slice a wet start to a round.
Would certainly recommend a visit.

Super course

Having heard so much about this course, it lived up to its expectation. Course layout was brilliant and in a super condition, even though it rained constantly all day.
Some very well placed lakes and tree lined fairways make you think about every tee shot. We didn't see anybody in front of us or behind us all day, which wasade for a better round. I would definitely recommend playing here. Excellent facilities too. Top golf club.

Beautifully designed course which is maintained to a superb standard

From the first tee to the eighteenth green the county course failed to disappoint. The course was maintained to an excellent standard, with pure greens, sandy bunkers and the fairways were consistent and also very well kept. I played pretty well, in part due to the beautiful conditions and great weather, shooting a 4 under 69.

Flat challenging course.

Delight to play. Open but not easy by any means and at around 6600 yards, a good work out. Excellent greens with consistent pace. Excellent facilities too
