Two good tracks

The Old Course is traditional parkland, the new is more open and has the unique? factor of two greens on 15 of it's holes.
Both are a challenge but the new course is less punishing for higher handicap golfers.
The clubhouse is large and quite impressive, but feels rather corporate and could do with a lick of paint and some new furniture. The changing rooms are tatty at best, but the plunge pool in the showers is worth a visit.

very wet and lots of mud. some leaves cleared but could have done with more being cleared from the rough near fairways as lots a couple of balls in leaves within 10 yds of fairways. Greens inconsistent in that some were taking a short iron and stopping and others bounced on so difficult to judge approaches. Greens were being treated and staff had very squeaky equipment which they seemed to wait until top of the backswing to start moving.

Very Friendly Club

Essendon Golf Club has two full size eighteen hole courses and a nine hole par three, all set in wonderful parkland. From the moment you enter the gates and start driving up the private road to the club you feel s though you have entered somewhere special ? and you have.

Good course but a bit dry

A good parkland course. Each hole separate from others. The ground was quite dry and recovering from a very dry summer. Some bare lies on fairways. Played as a match against Essendon so cost was good value.
