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!

Disappointing

Played Hainault today for the first time since last summer (when I was super surprised how good the greens were) unfortunately the greens were not good today , many of them resembled a cricket pitch, the tee boxes are shockingly bad ! We tee’d off at 3pm as a two ball and in front of us was a 1 ball & there was a 2 ball in front of him so wasn’t expecting it to be too slow unfortunately we were wrong as we crawled round excruciatingly slowly , when we got to the turn we found out why, going down the 11th was a SIX ball and behind them was FIVE ball , I always hope for the best when I go to Hainault as I grew up playing the course, but so often visits to the course are very frustrating and for years now they have done nothing to make sure people are only playing in 4 balls or less, which is why I don’t play there very much anymore. (I used to play there week in week out) After today’s experience it’ll be at least another year before I try it again.

Lovely Course in the dry - keep clear when it's wet!
Great variety of holes. Could do with some signage for first-timers finding their way round.

could do better

I love Hainault and have played there for over 40 years however simple things like not letting buggies out when its wet would help maintain the course. Sweeping the greens of all the branches that fell yesterday would've been nice too. Also there should be some system to indicate where the flags are (Front, Middle, Back) like a lot of other courses do.

Great course

Course was in great condition. Great value for money. Greens in A1 condition. My only gripe was the linguine restaurant which is way over priced and the food wasn’t that good. But all in all an excellent day.

Bunkers and Flags

Love the course but it does need some sand in the bunkers plus it would be great if they had some system to indicate where the flags are (front, middle, back) as there are few holes where you are playing uphill and can't see the green.

I haven't played this course in a little but I was pleasantly surprised at how good a condition that the course was in as it was quite neglected the last time I played it.
