What the club says: The Woolston Manor course was designed using the natural features of the land, in particular the river Roding which meanders throughout the course. Neil Coles MBE and David Williams designed the 18 hole championship course which was opened in the spring of 1994. The course measures 6510 yards from the white tees with a par of 72. The legendary Gary Player described it as one of the best young courses that he had ever played - praise indeed!

Disappointed

Played this course on Saturday morning (13th August) £35 green fee, and booked a couple of weeks in advance. When arrived we informed the pro shop there were now 8 of us not 7, and were told we wouldn’t be allowed score cards until the 8th had paid. Not a great welcome but can see where he’s coming from. Headed to the putting green, hit 2 balls and stopped as the bumpyness and unpredictable nature of it didn’t really help. Set out on the course, slow play noticed quite early, no issue with beginner golfers, but waiting for people with unrealistic expectations of waiting for the green to clear from 300 yards away on a 400 yard hole did slow it down a lot. At points there was more sand on the greens than on the bunkers. We had been told I’m the shop that there was some GUR, there was quite a lot of it. Fairways were dry but enjoyable, due to the dry weather. Greens had been Hollow Tinned (no mention of this in the shop) and as I said, the bunkers left a lot to be desired due to the lack of sand in them. Overall I don’t think I’m likely to return to Woolston Manor as feel my money would be better spent elsewhere.

Bunkers galore - everywhere you look.
Course conditions weren't great today - greens were far too scruffy, bumpy, some bunkers were waterlogged.
However, a few people I know played a society day a week later and said the greens were 10x better.

No repeat.

I first played this course when it was called Epping forest golf and country club.Now called Woolston manor,it is a tough course and that's not my reason for not going back,I didn't like the fact that six groups in our society,first two groups played second hole and then the groundskeeper come and move the flag why people are playing the hole.It's definitely gone down hill in my estimations.

A ten-person competition to honour my father. Really enjoyable afternoons golf at Woolston Manor. Always a challenge and friendly, many thanks to the excellent professional Tony for helping us. The weather was changeable but nice overall. Friendly clubhouse and food and drink (even if the prices were a bit high). The course was in reasonable condition although greens were very slow at times. Recommended

I like the course, great value for money. It's quite slow play but also understandable, no pressure either side. The bunkers need some TLC and quite boggy at this time of year.
A nice variety of holes.

Not easy

We paid ?30 for an early start on a Saturday.Course was in fairly good nick(a bit rough around the edges).Some long par fours and many bunkers to catch you out,they had just about enough sand in them.Nice outside terrace with swimming pool.We didn't try the food so can't comment on that
