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.

Good Course, condition questionable

Good course, plays nicer since they have swap the front and back 9. Stuck behind group, made day slow.

Fourball Tuesday Deal

Booked a fourball on a Tuesday at Mardyke, somewhere we have played many times before. The deal was for Seniors at £20 with an excellent mini breakfast and coffee/tea. 18 holes.
The course greens wise were excellent and receptive. The fairways unsurprisingly were very barren and dry but still playable just, although on the later back 9 this was very difficult at times. Mardyke is challenging and particularly the Watery Grave but still doable. We throughly enjoyed our golf and food and will be back in two weeks.

hilly for essex

Interesting course particularly round holes 6, 7, 8 where the slopes are steep and the water in front of the green quite a challenge for the second shot.

Excellent course, definitely worth a visit.

Excellent course. First three holes could lead to a false sense of security as it becomes much more challenging from hole 4 onwards.

Had Monday deal inc breakfast. Breakfast was not very Good. We won't bother doing this deal again because of that. Course as usual was good. New sand in traps. Fairways and green good.

Interesting terrain

This is a short course 5700 yards on the yellows but is arranged across interesting terrain. The first five holes are straight forward on level ground, then the sixth par five of 552 yards is over a hill to a closely guarded green in a valley with a row of trees and a pond. The seventh goes back up the hill on a dog leg right with green guarded with hedgerow and tree. The eighth is a short 313yard par 4 but with a big pond to clear right in front of the green.
The 14th is a difficult par five dog leg left across a steep side slope where balls run to the bottom of the slope from a blind tee shot. The green is guarded with a stream in front. The 15th green has a pond in front. Then the closing 3 holes are straightforward on the level.
