Highly Recommended 2020

What the club says: The Club is situated in the charming Stapleford Abbotts countryside where it provides the ideal location for a relaxing game of golf in tranquil surroundings. The Abbotts Course with its mature trees, water hazards and generous fairways will be a test for the proficient player yet enjoyable and compromising for the social golfer.

The traditional, barn style clubhouse was constructed in the 17th century and offers panoramic views over the 18th green. It’s a wonderful finish to your golf while watching your fellow golfers complete their entertaining round of golf. The setting provides an ideal opportunity to recharge your batteries.

Interesting course

This is a regular course on my circuit of courses. The price and ease of booking makes it easy to set up a group visit.
The course has several ponds providing challenges. On this occassion a pond was overflowing after heavy overnight rain and we all got wet feet. The ducks were loving it!

Hadn't played here for a few years. Was nice to come back. Course was in better condition than I remembered it and played well. Greens and aprons were super firm so needed to land most shots short. Rolled well once on them though. Well looked after by the club before the round via lunch. Excellent curry after in the place immidiately next door. Will head back sooner rather than later to play again.

Nice 1990s parkland course

The 1990s saw many new golf clubs some have stayed the course, some not. Stapleford Abbots felt like one which had. The course is more interesting than some, with good green sites which offer up challenges with slopes making putting interesting and bunkers to require precise approach shots. The greens were a little harder than the average 1990s course, which I liked as it made direction as well as distance important when approaching the green. My main concern was at some of the layout, particularly the sharp doglegs; the one played towards the M25 bordered on playing to a corkscrew. The 90 degree dogleg seems to be a feature on 90s courses, while no doubt forcing a longer approach shot they force a hole to be played just one way, rather than offering risk and reward. Indeed I wonder, given the fact that all of the front nine is dogleg holes were doglegs left, whether the designer was having a small joke, given Essex’s reputation for not being left wing.

Enjoyable course

After seeing the Dream vs Reakity vlog on You Tube about this course , I was worried. No need, great track to play. Nice n flat, few tricky holes with water, plenty of dog legs. Greens in great nick. Staff were very pleasant and pre match meal was very good. One of our team got hit in the chest by a stray ball??fired from the vice captain !! Yes, he did shout ?Fore? and treated us to a beer afterwards ! No harm done in the end, definitely be back . ?9 a man after 1pm, bargain.

A Gem in the countryside....

As part of our Nomadic Tuesday courses, five of us set out on two tees on a (very) changeable weather-wise. This is about the third time I have played the Abbotts course, so was looking forward to it. A Covid restricted clubhouse but warm welcome as always, excellent Bacon rolls, and then off we went. As we had some rain course softened up but 20mph winds hampered our progress. The course layout is challenging, long (around 6000 yards) but very playable. Greens were good with only minor cuts and abrasions so this was pleasing. After the round an outside beer/coffee thankfully it was dry/warm finish to the round before bibilical thunderstorm hit after we packed the cars to go home. We will be back its a lovely club and if I lived more local would look to be a member...
