What the club says: Join our Golf Club in South Ockendon, Essex
Standing in 140 glorious acres near the historic Ford Place on the South facing side of the Mardyke Valley, our South Ockendon Essex Golf Club is an exciting 18 hole parkland course. The long undulating fairways and water hazards give rise to some of the most challenging holes in Essex.
This seriously testing golf course was designed ‘by the members’, ‘for the members’.
Initially designed as a 3 hole Golf Academy, it grew into a 9 hole course. The free draining land had a huge potential and was destined to become something more; which it did, by becoming the outstanding 6201 yard, 18 hole par 70 course it is today.
The greens, fairways, paths and trees are all excellently maintained by our Course Manager and his team. Being blessed with exceptional drainage and a state of the art irrigation system, it ensures the best experience as the entire course remains open all year round.
Located in South Ockendon, Essex it’s just near London with only 5 minutes drive from the M25, A13 and the Dartford River Crossing, making it accessible from all directions.
Our Clubhouse with 270 degree views of the golf course, offers a bright, comfortable, relaxing environment in which to enjoy a drink and delicious home cooked food.
The golf shop is open every day and our Pro Matt, is on hand to give any advice or guidance to enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
Visitors of all levels are welcome, so please give us a call to book your next game of golf on 01708 855011 Or use the BRS Golf App. See our calendar of events.
Mardyke Valley Golf Club is part of the John F Hunt Group.

Mr

Played today. It was carry only but wow the course was amazing. Only wet in a few areas. Mats in play on some holes but no real problem. Greens and the surrounding areas are in lovely condition. The greens are so smooth, and roll so well.

Worth a Visit

Have played here a few times and it is a nice course. Some really challenging holes, to someone of my ability (or lack of), and now that they have swapped the course around having the "Watery Grave" in the front 9 is better as it used to spoil my round having it at 17. Now it is hole 8 I have a few more holes to forget my disasters!!!

Played in June in hot weather, good value for money, friendly staff, greens in good condition, fairways need attention very baron, there are some very good holes, it didn't cost us much, would like to play again and have some food as was played during covid times.

I enjoyed the round, course is in good condition but fairways are a bit long and need a cut, most holes unless you were in the middle of the fairway you couldn't tell if you are in the semi rough or not

Good value for a twilight ticket. The Greens are in great condition although the fairways seem a little long. Good evening knock.

Due to covid 19, and very hot weather the fairways was very dry, but good condition but the greens were in excellent condition. Plus they have put hooks on the flags which is a great idea. Keep up the good work
