What the club says: On 230 acres of rolling Essex parkland to the north of Gosfield Lake, where once the court of Queen Elizabeth I took the air, golfers now enjoy peace and tranquillity away from the bustle of modern life. In this idyllic setting the Course winds around and over the lakes, through woods and across streams in some of the most beautiful countryside in England.

The Lakes Championship Course here at Gosfield has the potential to become the finest inland test of golf in England" so said Sir Henry Cotton. Sir Henry was responsible for masterminding the design of the 6,700 yard Lakes Course and the less demanding 9 hole Meadows course in association with Golf Architect, Howard Swan. Sir Henry is remembered by giving his name to his own particular favourite hole at Gosfield, the 14th "Cotton's Choice".

£20 per round which is great value, most tee's have mats down or they are temporary tee's. Course was muddy underfoot and fairways on some of the holes the grass seemed long and rough.
got back to the clubhouse around 15:15 for something to eat to be told the kitchen was closed, possibly due to the current situation, in all an enjoyable day.

A drivers dream

The course was challenging due to the fairways having a long carry but the fairways were not too hard allowing for good golf.

Worth a visit

The very good would of been excellent but because of COVID and government rules certain facilities are not open yet and not the fault of the club.

Gosfield lakes

The course was very dry and the fairways were quite poor. The greens were reasonably good and soft. Good overall

Great course

After all the rain we have had the course is in fair condition, the 5th tee is closed so you have a temporary tee, think it makes the hole better in my opinion..

Gosfield, a nice walk.

I played gosfield for the first time in fifteen years on Monday and found it still to be a very nice walk in pleasant surroundings. Gosfield is not a hilly course, the fairways are very wide but if missed the rough is very lush and difficult to play out of, the fairways are still suffering the effects of the hot summer but the greens were very good and medium paced. We had lamb shank for a late lunch which was excellent and well presented. overall a very enjoyable day on a course suited for society's and charity days.

What a cracker

Fabulous course with some really lovely holes on it.

Not a bad challenge for all levels. Well thought out to use the landscape to best effect.
