Good local course

A good local course that is easy to access. With 2 different tees for each of the 1st and 9th, 2nd and 10th, etc, amateurs can get to know holes well and aids with improving different parts of your game whilst still feeling you have a different challenge.

Lots of walkers around the course which adds an extra challenge but that what happens when a course is closed for 9 weeks due to COVID.

Normally a good clubhouse but couldn't go in this time (understandably)

?13 for twilight round which is very good

Greens are quite fast but maintained very well

Poor Signage

Arrived 15 minutes before a 07:30 tee time that I booked and paid for on line, but the pro shop was closed, nobody in the bar, etc. Spent 10 minutes knocking on doors, pressing the buzzer for the clubhouse, but got nothing. So had to play and use a scorecard I found in my bag from a different course.
Signage from one green to the next tee needs to be clearer as can be confusing if (like me) you are unfamiliar with the course.
Despite the issues with finding my way around, the course is actually quite nice.
Greens are lightning quick, so careful with those downhill putts!

Solid course as a 9 hole, bit boring as a two tee 18. Greens immaculate and the best feature of the course, lots of irons off the tee as well which is always a bit more interesting than driver on repeat.

Great golf would go back definitely. Easy to access with the centra line tube line. Course was not in great condition and pace of play was fairly slow

Shame about the dog walkers. They don't seem to realise/care that it is a golf course. Take them out and it would've be excellent across the board. Greens were absolutely beautiful.

A nine hole course on common land. The condition of the greens is amazing. The fairways are a bit short, the fairways are wide, but if you miss them you will be in trouble. If you haven't played here, it is very worthwhile.

Nice course but spoilt by the meanderings and inattention of dog walkers and children who have access to the course (common land). However this was at around 7pm on a gorgeous Friday evening so might not always be like that.

A very old essex course 9 holes only which you play twice from 2 sets of tees. With todays equipment, its a bit of a quirky challenge, but I have never completed it under par so I cannot say I find it easy. The greenkeeper ALWAYS blows me away at how he keeps the greens in such great condition, miracle worker, Kenny the pro is very helpful, and the clubhouse is a snug retreat to have a post game snack or pint.

Weather been terrible just wanted to have a round of golf and how lucky was I ! Tee's in good condition. Fairways were better than some others I have played in much better weather conditions. Greens are very well kept. We had a really warm welcome in the clubhouse afterwards from members (is this really a golf club?!?). Cannot wait to go back and play the course again.
