I don't like the multiple holes you have to play over/across other greens/holes, especially given the course is directed at more amateur level players. Greens were a touch patchy in places. Pace of play was incredibly slow but I hear the social in front was for a commemoration so can't complain, except one guy was constantly on his phone - if you've got more important things to do, don't play. Fee of £35 for midday Saturday is steep; there are lots of courses within 5-10miles of Ilford (of better conditions and value for money) that charge less

Great course!! Great condition

Well worth a visit. Great condition although short it should not be taken lightly. Some very challenging holes and some difficult hazards to navigate.

Poor course, terrible pace of play even worse facilities

We won’t be going back - 5 hour round. The course is not a good one, very short and of little interest. They schedule far too close times and you often tee back over the previous green, waited 10-15 mins on EVERY hole.. the clubhouse is a glorified shed

Don?t worry about the The Nth Circ

Adapting to urban golf. Plenty of courses are adjacent to traffic noise but block it out & enjoy what's in front of you. Enjoyed the variety. Might start getting heavier as the Autumn moves into winter but happy to return & excellent value

Won't be going back in a hurry

Pretty little course, but lack of club house (New one is currently being built) offering no WC facilities or anywhere to get a drink was not good - We weren't informed about the clubhouse when booking and yet they still charged full price. Grumpy warden also put a downer on the round. Horrible orange grass treatment also stained literally everything!

So Confusing but Nice course....

Five of us played today for our first time at Ilford GC. No clubhouse facilities, no marshalling and basically just the members on the course.
Great shorter course in excellent condition considering that most of Ilford were underwater about two weeks ago.
As we looked a little lost after going over a footbridge over a busy dual carriageway a couple of the members kindly directed to the starting holes and talked us through the first three holes.
The major feedback really is the layout of the course is very very confusing, any Garmin products were picking up the wrong hole and frankly so of it on a busy day (this was not thankfully) would have been dangerous in the hands of the wrong golfers.
We will be back now we know what we are doing but hopefully a clubhouse facilty will enhance the experience.

Highly Recommended.

Tight course with some real challenging holes. Great atmosphere and really friendly. There is a new club house being built at the moment although there is a delay due to the Covid pandemic.

Compact short course

Compact course with a couple of crossover fairways, short and tight in places. Greens very true but on the slow side.

£35 I was expecting good greens and reasonable tee boxes at least!!! \\Greens were ok, just ok. Tee boxes were shocking. \Random electrical pylons on three holes.... one along the entirety of the hole! \\Bloke in pro shop was rude and asked me and my two colleagues if we had our own clubs on three occasions !!!! “Yes mate, we are not the sort of people to turn up to a course and play with one set of clubs between three of us” \\On a plus, there were not many people out on the course and those that were were very friendly and happy to advise on where each hole was. Lucky as the course is not very well marked out. \\I’d probably never go back given that Wanstead and Hainault are just as close to me. And for\£10 a round less - piss take to charge £35 for a\Very average course! \\82 shot. 2 over handicap \\
