nice course BUT see review

Nice course with some interesting holes, position from tee crucial, 6 par 3,s 4 par 5,s and some long par 4,s greens not particularly fast or slow but true. The BUT could do with signs for next tee or map on score card as next hole not always obvious.

Cracking Course

Course in excellent condition. Tees, fairways and greens are really good and well maintained. Bunkers are pretty awful, but understand that lots of work is planned for these in the coming months. The course is a real challenge, but the layout is superb. Every hole has something interesting about it. The clubhouse is very comfortable and the service is excellent. The outdoor area, overlooking the 9th and 18th greens is lovely. The welcome is a very warm one and the food is really top notch.

Excellent course worth a visit

Each shot requires thought but still some holes for the big hitters. The stroke index one needs a well placed drive.

Okay

I must admit Colne valley is not one of my most favourite clubs but it does what it says on the tin . Fairways and greens in good condition but if you go in the rough you can be in big trouble as it’s very overgrown

Curate’s Egg

There are some very good features on the course. It is challenging, with some narrowing fairways between the trees; it is an attractive course; its greens are well kept. However, the bunkers are not well kept, with many stones and weeds in them (I know the answer is to stay out of the bunkers!).

Played a couple of times and really enjoyed it. A great course despite the recent weather. My only gripes are the that the bunkers need more sand and less stones, and it would be nice to have some form of signage at the tees to show the lie of the hole/green/hazards etc.\But I guess the more I play the more I’ll get to know the course!!

Great course

A challenge for mid handicap player. Course in good condition although greens were very firm for March. Pro shop very friendly, service in bar slow despite being almost empty! One of favourite courses in Essex, will return soon.

1st visit

Our first visit and we were very impressed. The course is beautiful and even though it’s January the conditions were top quality. Well drained, firm fairways and immaculate greens. The hole variation is interesting & every hole poses a challenge. Cannot day enough good things about the course, members and hospitality in the clubhouse. Very excited to get back there again, I imagine it is stunning in the spring/summer.

Great Parkland course.

One of the better courses in Essex during the summer months.

A great mixture of longer and shorter holes combined with the 6 par 3's means your iron game will have to be on form if you want to score well around here.

Some of the tee shots provoke thought from the tee and then greens can be the courses greatest protection.

Can get slightly wet during the winter but that goes for most courses in the area.

great course worth visiting

Saturday tee time at 10.20 for £22. Absolute bargain for a really enjoyable course. Greens were rolling out nicely for the time of year and rain, fairways were good. Really worth visiting.

Fantastic Find

Played this course for the first time as our normal choice was unavailable due to a competion. This is an excellent course for all levels, in very good condition for the time of year and very good value for money. Clubhouse staff extremely friendly and we were made to feel very welcome.
