Long testing & varied parkland course with great greens in excellent condition where you will use all the clubs in your bag. At 6440 yards off the yellows it's longer than the back tees of many other courses proving to be a real test. Nice clubhouse which is shortly due to be renovated. Great food & sky TV. Has a well stocked pro shop along with a decent grass practice range.

good course. has been a little neglected in places and the greens, whilst being fast and smooth, dont seem to run true. however, it's a top course for the money, a really friendly feel to the place and the members seem very friendly. challenging in a good way and there is still some investment going on.

Membership is a little pricey for what it is. £1000 and I'd join tomorrow.

Well maintained, challenging course

The maintenance of tees and greens, particularly around the clubhouse, is fantastic. I had wanted to play here for a number of years but I couldn't stretch to full membership, so finally got to play as a visitor. Plenty of directional challenges. The only downside is it looked like the course is susceptible to flooding as it was still waterlogged in places despite nearly 3 weeks of dry weather. Despite a disastrous round in terms of score, I'm looking forward to going back.

Very nice course

Nicely laid out members owned course. All in decent condition with just a few areas of wear. Plenty of water, ditches and dog legs to negotiate makes it a thinking mans course. The fairways Are pretty generous but are usually flanked by trees. The bunkers are well placed to catch you out and several of the greens are small which makes the aim important. Clubhouse is nothing special from the front but is pleasant inside and the catering was excellent.

Rude Ground Staff. Unenjoyable experience. Not worth the money.

Played at Bentley on the 14/03/2018, and was looking forward to the round after seeing good reviews of the course. At £35 a round it was higher than most courses in Essex but thought it's worth the shot.

Without being told we run into trouble, greens closed due to maintenance, ground staff cutting down trees and for some reason, decided to burn them at the tee boxes.

Heavy, thick smoke covered the air leaving the view very difficult, not to mention a chesty cough & one of my friends struggling to breathe due to being ahsmatic.

We was shocked how the pro shop didn't bother to notify us before/after we paid, but more than happy to take our money and find out for ourselves.

Golfing etiquette is a major thing, all courses I play normally deal with this well, eg grass cutters stopping the machines to allow silence for our shots, but at Bentley it was quite different, several Chain saws going off 10 foot away from you.

After we questioned the heavy black smoke and the sound to the ground staff, one replied 'This is our f****g course, not yours, get on with it*.

It's a course that we feel was not worth the value, and a lot better courses out there, with better standards on how to treat their customers, and where your site will be visible throughout the round and not come up with a chesty cough.

Won't be returning to this course, and I wouldn't recommend anyone else should.

Andrew.

Have played this course many times and continue to see improvements being made to the course with 3 holes revamped in past 2 years and 2nd hole currently being rebunkered. Changing rooms redone in 2012 and now do justice to what is a superb course. Food always really good quality and good selection of daily specials.

Visited Bentley in August as part of a society day.
The Course was in great condition, greens best I have played
all year. Andy and his Staff could not do enough for you.What a great Club, would join but a bit to far to travel.

Definitely worth a visit

Very nice course in good condition. Greens playing very well, although difficult to stay on unless coming in from high. Some difficult pin positions, and challenging fairways. Very good day of golf.
