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.

Fantastic course while worth visiting, "Hidden gem in Constable Country", have played there a few times now, always welcoming, in very good condition, tight in places, and the Greens play well.

Hidden Gem

Awesome course, hadn't heard of this course before but I would recommend this to anyone. Slightly higher price, but well worth it. The course is in excellent condition, with the greens at a fast pace. Everyone at the club was friendly and people on the course were happy to give tips to us newbies. The 9th and 18th have a shared green in front of the clubhouse which is always a nice touch.

Great summer course

Played Colne Valley a couple of years ago early in the year and it was really badly waterlogged. They have clearly been working on the course and given the recent dry weather it is in fantastic condition. At £21 (Sunday afternoon, 2 ball), it was brilliant value for money. Would definitely recommend it as long as there hasn't been too much wet weather.
