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!

Most Helpful Review
Not impressed that the cost of the round did not match the website. I was told these were the new summer rates and the website had been updated. Bearing in mind that I checked the price before leaving home I was not impressed to be lied to! Cheeky guy then gave me change in coins not notes. Not a good attitude at all. Website changed sometime this morning (day later) - Mar 28 2017

Golf Course Reviews for Hainault Golf Club
Played here today, gobsmacked by the price and the course nowhere near represented this. Do yourself a favour, go somewhere else!
The owner is terrible. He has gotten rid of 7 day adult and senior memberships. He has also gotten rid of the junior membership. Subsequently, he has risen the 5 day membership prices by nearly £300. I would highly recommend that you do not purchase a membership until the owner comes back down to planet earth and realises the effect that he is having on people who play there on a regular basis.
Have played this course many times and must say it has one of the best layouts in the area.However in the last couple of years it has been ruined by filling in bunkers and felling dozens of trees.Staff are unhelpful and prices have increased dramatically.
(Round played: Jan 2018 - Score: 94 Handicap: 20.5)
a very poorly run golf course which is a shame because its a fantastic layout. came here for the first time this week and received extremely poor service both at the range beforehand and then in the proshop. staff are rude and unhelpful. the golf course is presented well considering the weather and I thoroughly enjoyed it, however I wont be going back as I refuse to give them any more of my money. weekday prices fair but weekend nowhere near £30 a round. I suggest you follow me as i will be going somewhere else in future until they change their staff setup.
