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.

Great work during latest lockdown

Was told this course in under new ownership and you can already see the difference. Okay today was very wet and the ball pretty much stayed where it landed. But the work on the greens, fairways and tees already completed, you can see this is going to be a great course when we get to play in some decent weather.

Good course, terrible tees

Course in really good condition and a very fair test. Greens a nice speed and a good challenge. But as said by others, tees are terrible. Very few are flat and are very marked. I find it amazing why so many courses get this wrong, itt doesn’t need to be lush green, but they should be flat.

Course is challenging with some lovely holes. Generally in very good condition. Staff always friendly and it was good to have a drink afterwards although outside only due to pandemic restrictions. A little more expensive than other courses played recently.

Lovely golf course in great condition

Really enjoyed my first round at the South East Essex Golf Club. All the staff there were ultra friendly, course was in great condition with quick greens, excellent facilities and pace of play superb - all made for a most enjoyable round of golf. Loved it so much, booked another round there next week.
