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!

Open, but why.

Don?t get me wrong. Being open meant I could get a game in. However with all the rain lately the courses are still open with buggies and trolleys. The buggies are skidding on the fairways and cutting them up. All other course I have looked at are carry only. Must be the ???? sign.

Played here this weekend for the first time and was pleasantly surprised. Course overall condition was better than good and for the money you cannot fault this facility. I will definitely revisit soon.

OMG what has happened here the course condition was perfect. Played here last year and it was terrible it’s like chalk and cheese. Friendly staff and the cafe had a BBQ on which I devoured before tee off. Great day out.

Having played many courses this summer I have to say this is right up there as one of the best!! Great value for money. If I was been picky the rough was long in places and I lost a few balls but then my handicap is 17 but all in all fantastic value for money. They charged £40 for 2 of us and a buggy at 2pm. Great afternoon will make this course a regular on my places to play. 5 stars.

Played on 21/7 Sunday afternoon, not a great start as a group of 8 were sharing two buggies and 2 sets of clubs. Such a shame as both courses are real tests with some great holes and the general condition is always good but they are now charging top money for what really is a pay and play where literally anyone can turn up - not uncommon to see five balls playing now, no proper booking system, half way hut owners have left and now it is rarely open - the owners have turned it into a cash cow - save your money and drive 20mins up the road to Toot Hill or Chigwell

Both decent courses, can normally get a good deal late afternoon. Just wish they did tee time bookings as can turn up sometimes and be waiting 40 mins to tee off. If they took tee times there wouldnt be a scrum at both first tees.
