a new course for us

This was my first time playing Forrester Park. It started easy with straightforward level holes but as the round progressed there were a few holes where we couldn't see where the green was. At the 8th the green is behind a row of trees and on the 10th the fairway is on open ground shared with the 18th hole. Although they are separate fairways the slope of the ground and the "not very obvious" 10th green makes for uncertainty with new players.

Just a really strange layed out course. No exciting holes really. Greens are well kept, they are soft. Teeing areas are very shabby.

Very Enjoyable

Played previously as part of a society day and again on Monday as a greenfee. Really friendly club and course is in really good condition, seems to be getting better and better. Not the longest in the world but suits my game so will be back.

Brilliant Condition, a new favourite

Hadn't necessarily heard of the club but have played 4 times this year and have loved every visit. Greens have remained some of the best in Essex in all conditions and the rest of the course including the fairways is well kept. Some of the tees need some work, had some mats down in Winter. But would thoroughly recommend if you haven't been before.

Course is decent. Good to play occasionally. Overall on the short side. Was water logged at a few places after a few days of rain. I have played in the summer too, and the ball rolls for ages making the course even shorter.

Waterlogged. Cannot cope

Course was in a sorry state. There were a few days of rain prior but the drainage wasn't ideal. Very boggy for most of the round. Played here before, but it is a very short course.

Great condition for Autumn

Played in late October. Course in great condition. Front nine is ordinary, but layout improves on the back nine. Course is fairly open so wayward shots can be played from the adjacent fairway (unless OB). Clubhouse facilities are basic. Would play again.

Fantastic course in great condition

Brilliant course, offers a challenge to all standards of golfer. Plenty of trouble to be found if you stray from the fairways. The greens were in beautiful condition and played perfectly. Would definitely recommend visiting Forrester Park.

Another Day at Forresters

This is my home course and it is going through a difficult time. Rumours about it being sold the tees and greens are not in great condition.

Nice little practice course

Good course to practice on. Good fairways given the condition. Some nice layouts of holes. Very forgiving roughs. As some holes are so closely packed, a mis-hit can be on a fairway.
Down sides: short course, in particular a number of par 4s and 5s. Tee boxes were in poor condition, lots of seed/sand is down. Supposing considering very little play over the last year. Greens are rock hard,
