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

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.

Ok. Tee boxes in poor state and greens not the best. Cheap twilight round though

It's ok but wouldnt go back

We were surprised we'd never heard of this place as the course is only about 10 miles from us.
It's the only course in Essex I wouldn't go back to. It's a giant field really, with holes cut into it. Unimpressive

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,

First time playing this course. Nice clubhouse and some interesting holes, but they had fertilised the greens and I played poorly. A good challenge.

Decent round spoilt only by the greens not being consistent which made it very difficult to read pace.
Also odd society playing holes in a different order (13th to 5th!) made it slow in a lot of places.

A good set up for a nice society day with mixed abililities. Greens were a little unfair as nothing stuck and surrounds not in the best nick but ideal for what we wanted.

Although I enjoyed the course and the round, I did find the layout a bit higgledy piggledy. There is a lot or walking between Green and Tees and I think it could be laid out better. There are also a couple of holes where you walk round the corner straight into the line of play, such as the short Par 3 11th. The walk back to the 18th Tee is long and goes alongside the 2nd so beware here as well.

You can tell which holes made the original loop of 9, and which are more recent additions. Whilst at times it's a little open, some of the holes are stunning and are more engaging. It's entertaining but not the most challenging
