Interesting

(Covid restricted round) Decent track. Greens a bit woolly. Several holes where you have to play over trees to get to the green. Even from good positions on the fairway. There's enough room if you can get up and over, but they're a bugger bugger if you can't. Some judicious pruning wouldn't go amiss. Some really attractive holes. Bunkers currently GUR. Clubhouse looks lovely but it's shut. £15 quid after 2pm was a bargain. Unfortunately will get marked down as no clubhouse experience available. I would definitely want to play here again.

A tale of two halves.

I hadn?t played here for some years and it was a pleasure to meet up with an old friend and play this course again. Developed from a 9 holes old course into a new 18 holes created an interesting mix of the old and the new together. The tees could have had been cut but otherwise a really enjoyable round. Highly recommend a visit.

Forrester Park never disappoints

I play here regularly as I'm a member. The course gets better and better all the time. The summer this year brought near drought conditions but the greens remained superb. It's a testing course as the first few holes follow the perimeter and have trees and OOB to the right. On other holes, trees guard the greens. But there are more forgiving holes to balance this out. The clubhouse gives good value and staff are friendly.

Terrible layout

I?ve played most of the courses in Essex and Hertfordshire and can honestly say this has the worst layout. Greens and tees next to each other, fairways all next to each other. I actually think the course is dangerous as fit the first 8 holes all you hear are golfers shouting fore. The tees were in terrible condition as well. Will not be returning here and surprised they have members still returning
