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.

Par 3 course. (Badgers) is in disarray. Sand and dirt on the tee box?. Very untidy and looks like it has been forgotten about. Used to be one of the best par 3 courses in Essex now any pitch and putt would be better.

£16 - In Perpective

We as a group had not played Bunsay for about 6 years..give or take and thought we would reminisce. The price was good, not Cafe so we went to the sister course (about a mile away for a Bacon Sarnie, etc) .
Back to the golf, we found the course had not changed much, shabby around the edges uncut grass areas, half-decent greens although full of weeds. This has the potential to be a really good club but it's very tired and needs investment. Service in the bar after was poor as the young lad had no idea about bar work.. still, we enjoyed the experience but probably won't be back for a few years again which is a shame.

Mr

Have been a member for over 20 years and will play again.
However the last few years have been particularly difficult for the club.
Lack of green keepers has shown course care to be lacking.
Facilities are poor at present and communication levels are non existent from management.
Staff behind the club house counter are always friendly.
All the above is such a pity because Bunsay and Badgers(the 9 hole par 3)are beautiful little courses and deserve better.

Going downhill!

Have been a member here for getting on a decade. Maintenance is poor to say the least particularly what was the excellent par 3 Badgers where no work has been done on the bunkers for over a year and now full of weeds. Very disappointing but the owners the Warren Estate want to turn it into a Caravan Park and put all money and effort into the Warren where they charge a fortune for membership.

(Round played: Jun 2021 - Score: 73 Handicap: 16.8)

The ?could be great?course

Beautiful setting and can be very picturesque.
Unfortunately the Golfer seems to come second.
Watering of the course takes place without any concern for the golfer at times which interfere with play.
Greens are left with animal dug holes which should be dealt with as priority.
Bunkers are to be frank appalling with weeds rife and unraked sand.
Mowing appears to take precedence!!

Great Little Course

Had a good couple of rounds here at the end of 2020. Used the par 3 course as a warm up before switching to the regular course. Lots of areas to catch you out and some great fun holes to play.
The weather was awful but the course was still in really good condition.

Very average course now

Since before Covid struck,Bunsay has been on the slide down.This could be a super little course which combined with ?Badgers'makes for a testing game of golf in a pretty setting at a reasonable price.Regretfully since Covid there has been a noticeable lack of care for the playing public with bunkers and greens in a generally poor condition.put that together with a lack of refreshments other than tes/coffee and the overall experience is poor.

Havent played Bunsay for a couple of years. Played yesterday. Really sad to see the condition of the course. Weeds & grass in most bunkers, very little sand. Greens very poor, some with holes in. Especially poor was the par 3 course. Obviously the owners are throwing no no money at Bunsay. It was busy when we played with players of a 'certain generation' which did surprise us. Sadly i wont be returning.
