Nice little course that is now drying out. Clubhouse a bit old fashioned and very dark needs lightening up. Excellent bar food Ham eggs and chips £4.50 really good and great value. Pretty busy for a Thursday.

Tight, woody and wet this course plays a lot harder than is appears on the card. It was a great place to learn the game as accuarcy and short game are tested over distance. Always in excellant condition and very friendly, shame there isn't a little more room for a variation in tees for those playing 18.

this is a nice 9 hole course with a fantastic dog right par 5 good mix of bunkers and water hazards and all staff are friedndly has a small shop to buy esentals like balls etc.
i feel it could do with a vending machine for cold Drinks rather than having to go the bar for drinks which while playing 18 having to stop and change footware to obtain a drink is slightly tedious but thats me just nit picking

Very nice course, greens well preserved and well managed- went on a very hot day however and so dried scorched grass made it difficult

Good course, shame about other members

Used this course as a visitor over the weekend. Has a great range of holes requiring different skills and shots. A real shame that other users decide to take divets out of the ground in frustration. Also you get treated like an alien by the club staff, and spoken to like a criminal by other players when you supposedly ?take too long? on a shot.

Great little course! Only planned to play nine but wanted to play 9 more and it was only £5 extra! £12 for the first 9. Friendly clubhouse and even a little shop which I didn’t even realise was there.

what a fun golf course

Moved to Colchester from Romford late March this year . Played this course 25 years ago and thought I would give it a go . Kept in excellent condition . It is pretty , fun and you need to think . Just a touch short to be a great course but I like fun golf courses and this is exactly that . Members and bar very very friendly and I am told the food is excellent . I will sample lunch very soon .

Was just visiting the area, so popped in to try and get a quick game. This was not a problem as it is a pay and play course, which is surprising with the quality of the course. May only be a 9 hole but there is plenty there to challenge. It's not the longest course about but very enjoyable

Very well maintained course and nice medium-fast greens.lovely soft sand in the bunkers which are dotted all over the place. Only one par 5 and a lot of par 3 s so good practice for mid irons.
