What the club says: The award winning Badgers Par 3 is a truly beautiful course of outstanding natural beauty, widely regarded as one of the finest of its kind. Set in the middle of a woodland glade, in a tranquil spot, over undulating countryside, with an abundance of water & sand features, this is a fine & very challenging course. It takes its name from the resident families of wild badgers who live there in a special conservation area.

Bunsay Downs Coure is a mature & very attractive course with sweeping views over gentle gradients, it is suitable for all ages, abilities and standards of golfer, from the novice to the experienced player.

A small challenging golf course

Have played many rounds here and like to mix it up with the main nine and the very challenging par three,which should not be taken lightly.
Currently,with the hot weather watering can interrupt the use of the courses,so worth checking before leaving home.
The greens are very flat but the sun is taking its toll.
Generally,still a gem set in the Essex countryside and at a reasonable price.
The cafe/restaurant offers a wide range of snacks and drinks from coffee to beer and two excellent breakfasts.

great place for learning, improving

I joined this year, my first club, because it has served me well in my transition from playing mainly par 3 courses. it's also compact enough to do 18 holes in a reasonable time

Worth a visit

Its a nine hole with only 1 alternative tee on number 1, but good course, and fees are very reasonable, nice club house with good food.

Fantastic little course

I love this course after moving up to Essex I was looking for a nice little course to practice on. The Badgers par 3 course is a fantastic little course definitely 1 to get you thinking about, none of the holes are the same. The 2nd and 5th holes have to be my favourites tee box up above the greens but very tricky as you don?t feel the breeze above you. I?ve only played the Bunsay course 9 once but it a great layout too. Would recommend to anyone new or more experienced.

Very wet course because of the weather, so unfair to judge harshly. The greens are not the smoothest though.

Bunsay/Badgers,nr Maldon Essex.

The course is divided into the main 9 hole or Badgers 9 hole you can mix and match as you like.
The main course is not too long with fairly wide fairways and good for golfers of mixed ability.At the moment there are mushy areas on the fairways,but upto now all trolleys are allowed.
Badgers is a superb par 3 course which will test even the best and with fairly firm fairways,in the Summer it's a joy to play. greens are generally good on both for midwinter .A friendly clubhouse with a selection of hot snacks are available.A resident Greenkeeper is there to keep an eye on things and does a good job.
