What the club says: Orsett G.C was founded in 1899; this magnificent championship course designed by the legendry James Braid was firmly imbedded into this piece of the Essex countryside. In the early years Orsett became a focal point for the local community to gather and enjoy their golf; even through the hard times of the two world wars.

Best course in Essex

I played Orsett golf course on 12th July and found the course to be in near perfect condition baring in mind the heat that we have been having recently. I course is a real challenge and you really have to make sure you score well before getting to the 14th as it an extremely hard finish from there
Couldn't recommend the course enough

I have heard many good things about Orsett golf club and this is the first time I have been able to experience this superb course. Lovely welcome in the club house and the fairways and greens in great condition.

Really nice course, lots of gorse to avoid. Plenty of interesting holes. Unfortunately the members are among the most miserable I've ever encountered. They don't like visitors.
Play it once, it is worth it, if you avoid the members you might go back.

Orsett - Excellent course, but way over priced and some unfriendly cha

Beautiful course in great condition with lots of challenging bunkers. However it's way over priced for what it is. And whilst majority of players and staff were friendly day was soured by one club members attitude and aggression in the bar after the round. (My friend was wearing golf shoes - but despite checking for signs nothing stated they weren't allowed. Could have easily been dealt with in a friendly manner. We're both experienced golfers and the approach left a sour taste). That along with the unnecessarily step price would put me off recommending.

Nice course spoiled by rude snobby members and staff

A lovely course in top condition somewhat spoiled by rude aggressive members who clearly don't want visitors on their course. Snobby staff who look down their noses at you whilst you pay almost 400 quid for a 4-ball.
And most bizarrely of all they don't believe in tee times. They are just a vague guide. So you inevitably get large clumps of golfer all going out on top of each other, all getting annoyed at the slow pace of play. Wouldn't play again.

Play with a member not worth £80

Well established heathland/parkland treed lined course in great condition.
At over 6100 off the yellow it’s a long course. With firm, fast & true undulating greens & carpet fairways. With 4,5,6 bunkers per holes. Some bunkers are the Revetting type.
Good practice facilities include a chipping and bunker practice area & nets
Pro shop, Friendly staff.
The £80 visitors green fee is to keep the visitors away. However members guest rate of £20 was excellent value.
You have to play this course at least once you won’t regret it....But with a member

Exelent Winter course.

The morning started at 9am and just 1 degree centigrade resulting in frozen greens but not one single tempoary one! For mid January this was amazing and within a couple of hours they were soft and receptive. Ther rest of the course was equally impressive only let down by one tee out of use but the tee mat was in good order and as a bonus it shaved almost 30 yards of the hole.
The layout is a tough test for anyone and wild drives into the rough will be punished, I suspect even more so when the trees are full of leaves.
The pro shop is stocked with a decent range of clothing and a small selection of clubs at typical prices.
In summary, a very nice course, plenty of bunkers, no water and well worth a visit.
