Reviewed Oct 23 2013 by Carlos, London Colney - rated 5 out of 5
I played the course in early October and found the greens to be in excellent condition.
The tee boxes and fairways had improved greatly in the last few months, the new owner is visibly improving the overall quality of this enjoyable course.
I especially enjoyed the holes furthest from the clubhouse, while parring the picturesque final hole improved things. The food, staff and facilities are spot on.

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.

Since the new owner has taken over the club (previously Lords) the club house has been improved, bar menu is excellent, reasonably priced and well presented. The courses have improved in the last 6months beyond recognition,greens are excellent,fairways good and rough not too punishing, a most enjoyable round of golf, very helpful and pleasant and polite staff, you will do well to find a better all round club in Essex.

The course is tricky par 67. Course knowledge is preferable. Amenities are growing with a range, practise areas and the atmosphere is very good. Watch out for the society when HEART SX hosting their evenings as it can be very busy but its worth the sights......

It was disappointing to find that the 18th hole was closed today and not to have known about this until arriving at the tee. £1 off the green fee would have been a nice gesture.

Great greens

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

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.
