What the club says: South Essex Golf Centre lies mainly facing south and basks in the southern sunshine. The panoramic views over the Thames Valley and into Kent are truly magnificent. The three courses, Hawk, Heron and Vixen have been designed with spaciousness and nature in mind and have been blended into the established gently rolling landscape. Varying the mix of course can give some interesting combinations. Every hole is completely different offering its own individual beauty, interest and challenge.

A Choice of Three Nines

If you are used to a flat course, like I am , then you will find South Essex (Hawk/Vixen) a bit of a challenge. Many of the fairways have big slopes , both from side to side and up and down. The greens are well kept. Using a buggy maybe a wise investment for about £20.

Great Facility

Only played one of the 18 hole combinations so far but will definitely be back, if anything to use the range and practice facilities.

Excellent value

A good track indeed, with a very friendly welcome. Absolutely superb greens and just two slight complaints. Firstly, the bunkers on the Vixen nine holes had absolutely no sand and should have been GUR. It was ridiculous. Secondly, they could do with having a flag system, for front and back of green. Apart from that, a nice track and worth playing

Great course, poor food service

Excellent courses, clubhouse and shop sadly very much let down by service in restaurant after round. Last two occasions been a very long wait just for bacon bap. Yesterday no warning of any delays and other tables served before ours but despite several reminders took over an hour to serve baps. Then obviously weee not freshly made as meat was Luke warm

Played 18 holes on the Heron and Hawk courses. Fairly open but some interesting holes. Do not recommend the deep rough! They had just sanded the greens so putting was interested. Starting Marshall was friendly and helpful. Buggies with satnav very cheap. Bunkers not much kop but the rest is fine, and for ?30 midweek and late morning, was good value. Pro shop good and friendly as well. Will be back again in October. Nice terrace bar to wind down in afterwards too.

Very Enjoyable Course

Played it twice now, in very good condition and a lot of work being done. Enjoyed both rounds. Bunkers sadly were not great, hard, not raked and several were unplayable. Better stay out of them next time I play!

Good course well worth playing, they have done a lot of work to the club since I last played there. The course was in good condition but the greens were a bit bumpy. Good club house and practice facility?s. My only fault it?s starting to get a bit pricey to play there. I played there in the begging of May.
