Very good course with some fantastic, good looking holes. Greens are excellent, true and fast. Pro shop the friendliest I have ever visited. Didn't eat but a beer on the terrace was excellent. A really good day of golf, would highly recommend it.

Played on Wednesday, Course is wonderful, real class, not a blade of grass out of place, I am sure that the winter water damage on some fairways will be sorted soon by the greenstaff who seem to be doing an excelent job. Greens and tees are very good. Club house is comfertable with good food and hot showers. Wonderful day Thank you.

Enjoyed the course very much, played off the white tees which added interest on many holes. Good condition, good layout. Club house a bit "church hall", which is a pity as it could be excellent with a bit of a tasteful refit.

If you want class this club has got it all, the club house is 1930s art decor and very comfortable, service is good as is the food albit expensive. the course is different to all other Essex courses, it is flat and devoide of trees, so when the wind blows, look out, Tees, Fairways are good and the greens are very quick with lots of underlations but very true. this course was on my last visit imaculate with not a blade of grass out of place. We look forward to our next visit.

Great course, with problems

Unfortunately it was frosty on the day so we had temp greens (or holes in the fairway). However, they have a pretty major issue with about four of their fairways due to incorrectly mixed clover killer being used. This has completely ruined these fairways and they'll be a long time getting them back to decent condition.

That said this is an historic layout and a great challenge for all levels. The clubhouse staff and very friendly and welcoming. (And very apologetic for the state of their course)
I hope they overcome the fairway issue because this is a great course.

Frinton golf club

We play there every year in the Christmas holidays, normally it is dry apart from the second hole, this year six fairways were in terrible condition with a lot of water on them. The greens were woolly and slow certainly not up to there usual standard. A lot of work will now be needed with the courses drainage. The club house and the changing rooms have now been upgraded and looks really good, staff are as friendly as ever. Hope the course improves for the future as i normally tell people how good it plays in the winter months.

Fabulous place

First visit. Great course. By the sea with the wind blowing, proper golf. Greens in excellent condition for the time of year. Clubhouse staff very welcoming and accommodating. Club Pro very friendly. Changing rooms and other parts of the clubhouse recently refurbished to a high standard. Rest of clubhouse very traditional with an almost 1920's feel in the architecture and fittings. But the club is clearly one in the 21st century.

Played New Years eve, well drained as had a lot of rain, greens good as ever but it looked like they had trouble with the fairways getting burnt in the summer as all the high spots did not have grass but probably be in hand for the spring. Friendly as ever with good facilaties and had the men's changing area refurbished which is really good.

Could be better

Course is in a nice part of Frinton on the Seafront, but greens are very hard and fairway is cracked considerably in some locations. In need of some TLC and rain!

Greens are excellent

An open links course which belies the obstacles around the course, with pockets of rough, ditches etc. to keep things interesting.

The course was undertaking spring maintenance, so the greens weren't as true as normal. The clubhouse and changing rooms have undergone a series of improvements and are now very impressive.
