Nicely kept small course

Good for sharpening up your short game. Very well looked after, greens are good. If you want a quick round this is the place .
The staff in the bar weren't the friendliest but good set up otherwise

Rayleigh Club

I am now a member of this club, they do make a lot of effort to keep the course in good condition, and it is nice to play on well kept greens. There is a water hazard on 10 of the holes, and in recent years they have spent a lot of money up grading the course and drainage.
They also have marshals at peek times.

cheap as chips for twilight

18 hole course for £8.00 after 3pm. It`s a short course but there are still some tough holes. You can get round this course in 2 hours so it`s perfect for an evening of golf. People don`t mind letting you through which is always a big help.
Greens are ok and the fairways are ok. It is the Rayleigh Clubs small practice course. I like the layout apart from back to back par 3`s on the16th and 17th. Only 100 yards each. Some blind holes to keep you on your game. I will play this course again and again. I use it a a confidence booster.

Good local course in Rayleigh

There are 2 courses at the Rayleigh club this review is for the East course.
The East Course is well maintained and the greens are good if a little long.
It is not particularly hard or challenging except for a couple of holes.
It is a shame there are so many par 3?s and only 1 par 5 which is a good hole.
Overall and enjoyable course but not too challenging

good course

The course is in good condition, the greens are in great condition. overall a good course with a more challenging front nine to back. 18th hole very close to club house with very uneven green making for an interesting finish.

like everything else in england too pricey

Course prices have increased but quality hasnt , the earl course wasnt a bad course at £15 but now its gone up to £23 and it certainly doesnt warrant that kind of price , the greens are average and the fairways below average , i wouldnt be surpised if money from playing the earl was being used to manicure the Private course, whuch your average minion isnt even get a sniff of.
