What the club says: The course is a real test of accuracy and power. The tree-lined front nice meanders through the forest, uphill and downhill, requiring accuracy and precision, while the back nine is flatter and longer, allowing you the opportunity to open your shoulders and let go. West Essex is also home to the smallest championship green in England, nicknamed ‘the Frying Pan’ by members, the 159-yard 5th is a short downhill par three where you are trying to land your ball on a green that measures just 14 yards. West Essex Golf Club has evolved dramatically over a century and now stands proud as one of the premier clubs in Essex. Located in North Chingford just ten minutes from the M25 and the North Circular Road. The undulating fairways and the superb greens present golfers of all levels with a challenging but fair test.

Great Conditions & Starts off very interestingly

We were lucky to play in excellent conditions & the course looked fabulous. Starts off very interestingly but once the back 9 is underway fairways get wider & had a little bit of that up & back feel. That said I enjoyed the views & the greens were fair.

Quality Course and facilities

Played here last week with my son. Course was in tip top condition and fairway grass short and lush. No weeds in sight and ongoing maintenance evident. Great smooth and fast greens some with tough slopes. (Try and stop your ball on the 4th if you can.)
A new Range with Trackman shot info and a good putting green adjoining the terrace. Extensive lunch menu and bar choice. Thoroughly enjoyed my round. A tough course but you won’t lose too many balls playing here. Must be one of the best courses in Essex / East London situated in Chingford E4. M25 10 mins away.

Hidden Gem in Essex

is one of the best decent Golf Course around Essex London. The clubhouse is superb and the management team including the pro at the pro shop is very helpful. The course is being maintained very well and it is worth the money to become part of the community there.

This is a pretty course in the country side within the M25. The front 9 is a bit hilly. The fairways were a little dry but the greens were excellent.
