What the club says: The Heron Golf Club 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.

Nice people boring golf

This is quite a long sloggy course.
Not very pretty and the bunkers were dreadful.
The greens were not consistent.
If you like big open and long fairways this is for you.

Big changes since our last visit

From South Essex to The Heron - noticeable changes, big improvements, both on and off the course. Looking forward to a return trip when the course is drier to really give it a go.

Renamed Heron from South Essex, 3 9 holes courses Heron, Hawk, Vixen, we played Heron/Hawk. Course was wet but still in wonderful condition, must give credit to ground staff. This club has transformed since being taken back by original owners who have invested a lot of money & it shows. All staff friendly & food great, had a really enjoyable round with brilliant facilities

Interesting course with a variety of holes - Much work has been carried out over the last 18 months and bit by bit the management are turning this into a great course. Bunkers have been improved massively, and some areas have been cleared of scrub without diminishing the challenge. Greens are up there with some of the best around for pace and trueness. Staff are really friendly and unlike a few courses in the area- the members are friendly too!

The Heron golf club

Formally South Essex, I haven’t played this course for quit a whilst and the facilities have changed a lot for the better and they have have done a grand job. The course was in very good condition in July the greens were superb which I have never seen them as fast and they run true.
I did think the green fee price was a bit steep though.

too wet to be playable

played late on a saturday. nice enough course, open, greens in good condition, but everywhere other than greens very wet - ground was waterlogged most of the way round, a lot of unplayable lies. Course shouldn't have been open, or at least heavily discounted on green fees/warned when booking. Would avoid playing if it is like that through the winter, probably much better May onwards.

Wet

Played here years ago and never seen course so wet... I believe it shouldn't have been open. However when dry it is a fantastic course with some of best greens in the area. Even on a wet course the greens were still rapid.

Solid course

This is a good course with a number of par 5s. The rough is fairly short with thicker parts. The course is fairly open so it invited the driver and some of the trees are quite open so if you find your hall, you can get a decent shot out. Greens were very Sandy so it slowed them down quite a lot. Unfortunately not all sanded equally, less sand and the green ran quite fast.

I was very impressed with the improvements that had been made. The condition of the course was excellent and it was obvious that a lot of money had been spent on it. There was a great variety of holes and the greens were well kept.
