Shabby

For a club that has had very little traffic over the past few months the greens are awful. I have always been impressed with Essendon but the current condition of both courses is far from their usual standards

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.

Not quiet as good as it thinks it is, but still worth a visit.

Essendon thinks it's a premier venue but falls down on several points. The old course needs some serious TLC. The bunkers are pretty awful. The greens appeared to have been flooded so were very soft, well beyond receptive. The fairways needed a good trim too. The new course is in much better condition, although the "famous" second greens appear to have been abandoned. The clubhouse needs an upgrade, it's looking very tired inside. They are also charging preium rates to play it which aren't fully justified.

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.

Nice course with good greens but a little short on length

Nice course but busy. Old course was fully booked but New Course was busy but ok for speed. Would recommend and re-visit

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.

Enjoyable course and well maintained throughout. Very playable. Played it twice and it does seem to have a lot of traffic on the course - the car park is always rammed suggestion its very very popular and has lots of members! Feels a touch impersonal if I be honest - we felt like one of many sheep going through reception and bar. However the mens has a relaxation pool/hot bath afterwards and that alone would bring me back. More golf clubs should facilitate one!
