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".

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.

Quite disappointing

Played on a society day, very wet and boggy under foot. We weren't warned that every hole had a temporary tee and one temp green.

Clubhouse felt a little like going back in time - no mobile phones allowed etc. Staff were friendly enough though. Not sure I'd go back.
