Long, tough and glass greens

We played a Mizuno Pairs comp here and the course is a beauty. Long, tough, well structured, great condition and errr, did I mention long? While some of the later holes are rather similar, it is certainly a class above most in Essex. It was in superb nick but the greens were extremely fast, even by true championship course standards, with the members on the day saying they had rarely seen them so rapid. In truth it made chipping and putting something of a lottery. Well worth a visit

Challenging Course

First time playing here and was a bit of a challenge. Ball needs to be n the right place on the fairway to get a good score.

First class course, superb greens, it is on a hillside, overlooking the town and Audley End House, exceptional par 3 5th, always in perfect condition, the green staff are very helpful, be prepared for a long up hill par 5 3rd, after your round pay a visit to the clubhouse where the food is very good and a large selection of beers and other beverages.

Wonderful course

Course in great condition for the time of year. Very well maintained. Greens are not quick but very tricky to read. Hit it right and they run true.
Fabulous views from several holes.
Lovely club house. Excellent starter.
Just a shame the kitchen doesn't open till 11. (Go to Mocha in the high street. Excellent breakfast there.)

Sited on hilly ground on the outskirts of Saffron Walden this busy course has wonderful views and some challenging holes many influenced by the slopes. In good condition for Spring it was very well presented. Quite physical to play because of its contours, I?d recommend an electric trolley. The clubhouse is comfortable and welcoming.

Not worth the money

I'm sure the course is nice in the Summer but they simply cannot justify 55 a round in the Winter.

I played SWGC YESTERDAY 17/9/18 ok a honest opinion. Friendly staff in pro shop and bar. Now the course a lot of blind shots which makes it hard the greens not at there best and ongoing work so had to judge. But I’d like to play the course when all done the greens were slow but there are some nice looking golf holes think I would go back and and play. But the starter was a great character and very cheerful thanks.
