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!

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.

Very decent course.

Nice course and in great condition. Plays longer than the card suggests as it felt you're forever
walking up hill !! A bit of overnight rain as well. Greens and fairways in great nick. Bunkers well sanded too. Will definitely come back here.

Great Course and Service

It's a great club, there is no doubt. The layout is challenging without being savage so every standard of golfer can play to its particular charms. There were seven players today of varying degrees of talent and all bar none enjoyed the experience even if the golf was not that productive. On the days previous there had been a lot of rain so some fairways were a little sodden but efforts were made by the excellent team over there to lessen the impact. Overall really enjoyable.

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.
