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.

Great greens

Course in lovely condition, the greens were particularly good. Unfortunately, followed a society so the round was slower than normal.

Starting to look overpriced

As a nomadic golfer, I have played The Rayleigh Club's east course on many occasions over the years. It's mainly for the pay and play brigade or players that find 5,500 yards plus to much.
It's a decent test and has generally been in ok condition, but over the last couple of times I've played it, the greens are showing a far bit of wear and tear and are very bumpy. Now I guess you get what you pay for. But given a midweek round has gone up from ?15 pre pandemic (which was about right), to now ?20 it's looking overpriced for what it is. I know clubs have to make back their lost revenues, but they also need to take into account the quality of the course, otherwise sooner or later people are going to take their business elsewhere.

Short but challenging

Although this course I short course and you might not get the driver out that much, this course will certainly expect your short game to be quite on the money.
Course has good drainage and generally in very good condition.

WORST EXPERIENCE EVER

Played here a little while back. I had booked as a change from my membership club at the time Crondon Park. We had been booked in for an afternoon round. When going into pay the young guy at the desk asked us for our handicap, we do not have an official handicap and that had not been mentioned when we booked. The young guy didn't believe us and contacted someone else by phone. After explaining that we hadn't been asked and what the person sounded like, he begrudgingly agreed to let us play! His attitude was terrible, I have never felt so unwelcome at a golf course before. The course is badly signed and the cut around the green was terrible. Probably the worst golf course in Essex. I recommend not to play there, they don't deserve your business.

Good but could do much better

Course as always very scenic, but the fairway grass is, all too often, too long, and covered in a small white flower which makes finding a ball on the fairway occasionally very difficult (and on two occasions, impossible!).No semi rough either.In addition there remain a lot of small deep drainage channels in which balls can be lost, trolleys stopped dead in their tracks and, more worryingly, ankles turned. They need filling with gravel. There are some good holes here, don't get me wrong, and greens are excellent , but the course maintenance needs to step up.

Small but nicely formed

It's an OK course that makes you think on most holes. The ?20 green fee is just
about right in these current times but certainly no more. Due to its yardage
circa 4500 yards it means you can get round quickly and a good course to
sharpen up your game. The 6 minute intervals were too short as there was
a bit of bunching.
