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.

Poor drainage

The course was very muddy and I was very disappointed with the condition of the course and not recommend playing in the winter and also the restaurant closed at 16.00 hrs so unable to have any food after our game

Worth a vist

Nice course - tight fairways many of which bit untidy due to recent weather. Nice greens - would be deadly fast in summer. Quite hilly front 9 but definately worth a visit

Very good value at £20 after 2pm weekdays. Well kept private course. Some of the tees go over the previous greens, which could cause delays if the course is busy. Not a problem when we played though.

Good challenging course

I played at West Essex as part of a golf society day. It is a nice looking course with some lovely vistas of London through the many trees. There are some interesting and challenging holes and the course is well kept, the bunkers especially so. We had good food in the clubhouse and the staff were helpful and friendly. We would go back again.

What a lovely course

Every hole has a different challenge to be faced. No two are the same. Greens in great condition. Some fairways (on the back 9 especially) seem to be recovering from last years scorching, but nothing to spoil your round. It's quiet hilly so consider a buggy. The clubhouse is excellent and there are very clear signs that money is being invested in the course. The staff are very welcoming.

What a gem

Played here last week and have to say it is a little diamond of a course. Front nine very tight with holes 3 through to 6 very pretty, back nine more open with the 17th and 18th being the most interesting. Greens were true and fast and overall condition was excellent. Will definitely be returning in not too distant future.
