Work going on a hole was closed due to this and drainage ditches half completed between 3-6 inches deep which rersulted in golf balls constantly going down them losing distance and causing more strokes but the club still had the gall to charge full price despite being a building site .

They have improved this course but it still has a long way to go. Very expensive for such a short course, some of the holes I can throw a ball further!!

Played the Earl Course today - worst course I have played to date may of well played at the local park. None of the tee's are marked - no fairway - greens poor. Not sure what they have done in a year (see post 28/10/07). If I come again will play Duke course which is supposed to be better!
Facilities very good shame they do not spend more on the course.

Played 5 holes on Sunday before returning to the clubhouse and demanding my money back. Temp tees and temp greens neither of which had been mown in at least a week if im generous. Par threes were as short as 40 yards. Very poor excuses made when i complained but they did refund my money eventually. I respect what they are trying to achieve and have long said that they need to take the greens out of use but what they have put in as substitutes were no better than playing on a football pitch. Dont be tempted by the £10 green fee, you can get the same quality course for nothing at your local recreational ground. Must try harder.

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.

OK

Short Course, but ok for a quick round when conditions are ok. Greens are small but ok and bunkers have a good covering of sand.

Only based on the past few rounds this is my opinion.
Went and played 1/4/17 only to find a 15% increase in price even though playing on temp tees (not mats) so the 7th par 3 was playing at 87 yards, as well as other tee positions being too far onto what they might call a fairway but more like rough. So disappointing as this is my local and I usually enjoy this course.

Played here over a year ago on a Sunday and green fees very reasonable
Turned up today they have increased the green fee to £20
Can't see any justification for increase course had rubbish littered all of the course
Fairway dug up for drainage and no repaired in a good way
I play three rivers for a lot less money good ball cleaners no par 5 but well worth £11 for a round
Think Rayleigh club need to clean up course and make it £20 pay and play very disapointed

Played the East Course (formerly Earl course). Played quite a few times in the past and its a course you go to if you cant get on anywhere else and was always cheap. Now £20 weekends and too much. They try to justify it by saying the course it better than it was but the bunkers werent that full of sand, a few looked like they should be GUR. They have cut the long rough shorter but there isnt that much of an improvement on the course. They clearly focus their attention on the more lucrative longer course

Now costing £15 for a midweek round at 4pm is a disappointment, used to be £6. Can play other, bigger courses for the same price. That said, the course is becoming in better condition, but not worthy of a £15 green fee.

Not really looked after as not the main course. Bunkers rock hard with not much sand. Owners tend to drive youngsters to a free hole and play, even if it holds you up.

Not played the Duke course but have played the Earl. Earl; No tee signs, direction signs or distance markers. No map or picture guide of holes available. Most fairways okay, greens seem reasonable. A bit of effort to improve would make a lot of difference. The layout of the course does not lend itself to choosing to do either just the front or back nine holes during twilight or when pushed for time - some clubs the first and last hole on each nine is by the club house - not here. Not a difficult course though (just as well as I am not very good!).
