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

Great layout and an interesting, challenging but fair test of golf off white tees. Got away with a few wayward tee shots and kept the same ball till the 18th (d'oh!). Course in reasonable condition considering all the rain and was pretty empty. Greens however were slow and patchy. I'm sure it's better in the Spring. Went for the breakfast and 1 round deal which was good value for money. Overall it's a smart place with good and immaculately clean facilities and friendly and professional staff. The "practice area" is a bit noddy but that's the only real criticism. Would definitely play again when it's not quite as wet.

What a gem of a course, played the New Course yesterday and I must say it really is superb. Great condition and very reasonable. The Clubhouse I was informed has just been completely refurbished and the lunch was excellent. Well worth a visit. The Old course looked great as well as we drove out of the estate

We got lost

Trying to get from 9th green to 10th tee. Def recommend a stroke saver for first timers. Head of Golf could not have been more accommodating after speaking to him in the car park. Wonderful course. Looking forward to playing the new course next time.

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.

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.

Played the new course on a charity day and found the facility to a high standard. Very nice and friendly staff. The course was in great condition and very picturesque. Well worth a visit.

The condition of the course was superb in the spring sunshine and the winter work on the greens have paid off as they are the best greens I have played in 2 years. The greens run true and fast for this time of year. I would highly recommend a round on the old course.

Lovely course, a little bit more forgiving than the old course, but the rough is still punishing and the layout of many holes requires you to think about the shot you are taking on.

Course is currently in lovely condition - new owners clearly spending some money! It's great that non members can now play the New Course - the 17th to the A greens is one of the nicest par 4's I've seen. At £39 a round it's fair value
