What the club says: Wanstead Golf Club was established in 1893 and offers a warm welcome and a challenging 18 holes. The Course is set in beautiful parkland and has hosted many of the major events in the Essex County calendar and is the home of the prestigious Armitage Cup. You will need a handicap certificate and knowledge of golfing etiquette, but we guess you would expect that from a long established club! Ample Car parking or if travelling from the City only 5 minutes walk from Wanstead station on the Central Line

Tight course, perhaps too tight

The very friendly pro explained the oddness of the layout and didn’t quite believe until I experienced it. The first and last fairways crossing, the shleps between 1st/2nd, 5th/6th, 16/17/18, the overlaying fairways of 3rd/4th. Definitely some interesting holes but wouldn’t like to play when busy. Course very dry with grass struggling on nearly all fairways, greens in reasonable condition. Overpriced.

Old Staple in Essex

They have spent a lot to improve the patio areas due to the recent pandemic regulations on social distancing and outside eating etc, the course has also benefitted from the recent rains

Nice course on the Edge of Epping Forest

The greens were in very good condition and the fairways recently cut, We agreed as a society to play pick and place as there were some bare patches Holes 2-5 are a short walk away and up and down so rehearse the word FORE! Staff and members were very friendly and helpful. Hole 16 is a real poser!!

The course was in good condition and they are doing a lot of work to the course clearing bushes renewing the pathways etc, the playing surface was good especially around the fringes of the greens which was impressive as the last time I played the course it was a bit scrappy.

Really Nice Course

More difficult than I expected but great course. Greens were excellent but tough to read. The fairways were a bit hard and the undulations gave some inconsistent bounces.

Not Bad

Played here September '19 .

The course got more interesting as it went on .I wasn't that fussed about the front 9 but on the back 9 i thought the holes had more about them & were more interesting .

Fairly unusual layout in that the uninspiring holes 2 to 5 are in a separate area which is reached by walking along a residential road & then at the end of the round you play 2 holes around a pleasant, large lake & then walk along part of a cricket ground to get to 18 .These 2 lake holes 16 & 17 are good holes & the lake takes you buy surprise if you don't know about it as it is high up & not visible from the rest of the course .
Fairways were dry on the visit but then we haven't had a lot of rain this summer & the greens were recovering from maintenance but putted well.

The visitors car park is quite small & when we arrived there wasn't a space & the residential road didn't seem to have a nearby space but after about 10 minutes someone moved. I liked the feel & atmosphere of the clubhouse & it was pleasant sitting on the south facing patio out the back with a drink after the round by the putting & bowling green .

It's probably worth a knock here if you haven't played it before .

The course was not in the best condition, very dry and the fairways were burnt and difficult to hit out of. Greens were in OK condition.

Atmospheric Friendly

I play this course on occasion as a guest of some members, on this occasion although the course is a parkland course you had to play it like a links due to the dry conditions and the greens was very hard to hold.

Good track and very convenient for central london

Played on the bank holiday with a current member. It's a nice club and very convenient for anyone living in central London. Very reasonably priced membership as well I believe. The course itself is solid, if a little on the short side. Greens were very well kept and there are some challenging holes with tough tee shots, especially if you aren't 100% where all of the hazards are. A couple of the holes cross fairways etc, but that and the short length are obviously down to being in central london! Fairways were a little bare in parts but that's down to the scorching summer last year and lack of rain/recovery time.

Tricky course. Stuck up Members

Pricey course for what it is. No the longest around but tricky, definitely a thinking course. If you are out of place off the tee you have no chance of a par. Practice areas are all good.
After golf we tried to take in the clubhouse, to which we were made to fell very uncomfortable. You can see why these types of golf clubs are going out of business with members like these. Told not to stand on a certain side of the bar, continuously asked if we were members, told to move outside because we had not got changed. Will not be going back.
