What the club says: The course is truly unique, with 9 of the fairways being narrowly sculptured out of the ancient forest, pleasantly contrasting with 9 wider and winding fairways. Subtly borrowed greens are guarded by strategically placed bunkers, all of which make this par 68 course a real challenge for all standards of player.

A bit too tight

For the twilight rate of £14 it really is good value, but some of the fairways are so narrow, it does make it a bit silly sometimes. Plus there are just too many short dogleg par fours. Lovely welcome from everybody we spoke to, but broadly not a great course

Nice. Tricky. Could be better

The only thing letting this place down is the greens and I?m guessing that?s because the hold to much water. Lovely place don?t need a driver

Friendly people, decent course, but....

This is a tough challenge. Very tight, lots of dog legs. Which are the defences over it not being very long. Knowing where to go off the tee is pretty much essential and on some holes leads to taking some very serious risks. However, there are a few holes, especially on the back nine that, IMHO don't work or are kind of tricked up to make them more difficult. For example, The 12th is played over a hedge from the tee. It's a short hole, but you have to play even shorter because there's another hedge about 50 yards short of the green. There's what looks like a gateway space cut into this hedge. It has an air of a crazy golf hole. The 17th could be a great hole, if not for another hedge, across it at about 250 yards. Sure, it's there to stop you driving it. But bunkers would do the same job. Get it slightly long / wrong and you're in the hedge and penalised unnecessarily. On the day we played here, most of the greens were soaking wet and incredibly soft (not just receptive). Many had also been recently tined (in a hot August?). My guess is they have had issues recently and are trying to correct them. Big plus point is the people here, really couldn't do enough for us. That said, I'm not sure I'd rush back.

Birtday game with mike graeme and nobby

Always wanted to play this course. Tricky but although short, you have to plot your way around the course carefully. Wouldn't suit a big boomers game but those with guile would find it interesting.

A very nice course with good facilities. It’s not that long but you need to be accurate to score well.

Nice course in Epping Forest

Excellent private course. First green was in poor condition and there was one temporary tee (mat). Otherwise good and not busy on a Friday mid-day. Good value at £27.50 per round.

Short but challenging, tight tree line fairways, fast slopping greens no major water hazards but most holes have ditches both along fairway or across. Came off thinking should have done better, so will go back before the leaves start to fall.

Short, tight course

Tight little course that makes full use of Epping Forest to make up for its lack of length. Lots of irons off tees and clever placement required. Make sure you have your range finder for the lay ups.

Enjoyed the course - tight fairways. In reasonable condition. Would definitely play again. Covid restrictions prevented proper assessment of facilities

Terrific value course

Terrific value woodland course. Short in yards made up for in strategy, plays off 5400 on yellow. Difficult to review all facilities because of covid, but pro shop was open and seemed well stocked and good guy. You could get takeaway coffee and bacons rolls etc to eat out. Nice little practice green, and some nets. Really well laid out course, a good challenge.

Will certainly play again.

This course has a good layout and requires you to wear your thinking cap. Unfortunately we had 2 groups in front of us who were slow but other than that it was an enjoyable round. The course could do with some more maintenance but it could be lacking due to the current covid restrictions. Some of the greens ran different to others too. I would definitely play the course again.
