What the club says: Hainault Golf Course actually consists of two 18 hole courses, both are spectacular.

The Upper Course

This course hugs the hillside closest to the country park. The course has tighter fairways and is more hilly than the lower course. Although it is shorter and has a par 70, the upper course is still a very good test and will punish the wayward golfer.

The Lower Course

This course hosted the 2003 Essex Amateur Championships final and was the first pay and play golf course to be awarded such a prestigious accolade. The course is a par 72 and is a very good test of the long hitter, rewarding accurate long tee shots, but punishing poor course strategy, beware not to be tempted to mimic Tiger!

Lack of investment

I have played this course for nearly 40 years and it’s sad to see the decline in standards.
Everything from course condition to staff hospitality is now poor.
The greens dry, the aprons need repair and seeding and most tees are bare and uneven

Lack of investment by the owner

This is not value for money.\\\\It’s pay and play weekdays and a shambles if busy.\\\\Nobody tells you a society is there on the day.\\\\Bald patches everywhere, tees not flat and mostly bare, the greens are inconsistent and unwatered, the staff just smile if you complain.

Dirty and lots of litter everywhere.

Absolute filthy with litter everywhere. Not just a one off, it?s everywhere all over every hole in the bushes and trees, all along the paths. Horrible. It?s like playing golf in a bin. Shocking.

Big improvement

The layout of both courses are excellent although in the past the conditions haven?t been great. Since the new owners have taken over this has changed and is getting better all the time. The greens are in excellent condition despite the weather we have been getting recently. It?s been years since I?ve seen the 14th tee (top course) playable. Heads up for Golfshake, the S.I?s have been changed.

absolute shambles

Played on Sat the 31st of Oct, paid full price for the old course. Fairways were woeful and under water greens. Not looked after by staff, upon finishing I informed them of the condition of the course however staff members were rude and didn't want to know. Absolute shambles, will never play there again

Awful condition

The course is in shocking condition. I found out that their mower is broken so they cannot cut the fairways. This has been the case for 2 weeks. I mean surely they should have more than one? Also the fairways and rough are full of uneven lies and bare patches. The tees didn?t have grass on them and are uneven. The first tee on the bottom course is the most unbelievable tee I have ever seen! Not one blade of grass just dry dirt. They also charge full price!
