What the club says: The Rayleigh Club Golf Resort (formerly known as Lords Golf & Country Club) has two 18-hole courses which have both been designed by Reg Plumbridge of RJP Golf Course Designs, a name responsible for some of the country’s finest courses.

The South (formely Duke)
The 'South' course, at 6,616 yards, is regarded as one of the finest courses in East Anglia. A series of lakes and open water throughout the course encourages exciting, challenging and strategic play within a visually beautiful landscape.

The East (formely Earl)
The 'East' course offers a relaxing and enjoyable experience for players of all abilities. This executive length course, measuring 4,670 yards, is ideal for beginners, and those wishing for a speedy and unencumbered round of golf.

Tricky Course

Suffers from poor drainage but is a great course to play. Only one par 5 but lots of tricky holes where you need to be accurate off the tee. The tee boxes and bunkers are getting some much needed attention. I really enjoy this course and would recommend you play it.
It has a very good driving range, putting area but no practice for chipping or bunker practice. good food and very friendly staff.

We play most Wednesday?s on the East course, it has been waterlogged for much of the year so far. This week ( 3/4/24) they introduced temporary tees, by strimming an area in front of the proper ones. Not ideal when trying to play your tee shot.
Then they have the cheek to put up the senior rate to ?18 for a round.
Why don't they wait until the course is actually playable before putting prices up.

Ever improving

Since bunkers were reconstructed last year The Rayleigh Club course is a great course to play. Big hitters will love front 9 with visitors n shorter hitters preferring most scenic back 9. Very rarely closed due to great drainage.

The restaurant / Bar
For non members / visitors
Is a bit annoying as the staff give priority to members so you could wait a while to get served

Where did the bunkers go?!

Ironic that first tee was off limits as it was being reinvigorated only to find that every bunker bar about three had been filled in on the course since I was last here. Greens okay, but spiked. Fairway grass not great and those drainage channels are a nightmare, as always. Worse still was the standard of the ground that used to be bunker was so poor. Slope rating must be reviewed, surely. Course was all but empty on a Wednesday pm round

Nice course

I went here with a few friends to play one afternoon. We played the east course and found it a nice scenic walk and fairly easy holes. Would definitely come back however there is a lot of litter there and it is quite a walk round. Would definitely recommend a buggy or at least a trolley.
