What the club says: The Valley Course (9 Hole par 27)

This 9 Hole par 3 course is without question one of the best designed and maintained in the country. Lakes, bunkers, streams and mature trees provide an interesting and fun layout. It is a great place to start to learn the game, but also a challenge to the experienced golfer.

The Weald Course (9 hole par 35)

Top professionals play here because it's so good - so do us lesser golfers as well.

A great course with some great holes. You'll want to play it again and again - always the sign of a good course. There is a good balance of holes, some long, some short, but testing all parts of your game and making you think.

Pleasant course. Nice day. Great fun. Nice to have a round and get my eye in again. Far too many characters required here.

Good course for beginners

Good course for beginners. It was my first 9 holes. This 9 holes course is all par 3 and a nice introduction to golf.

Great Value for money

Underrated course in Essex - I've played a number of local courses and quite a few of them don't live up to the green fees tbh. You won't be disappointed going round this 9-hole course twice. PS: one of the more challenging Par 5's I've ever played.

Course adjacent M25

Challenge for any level. Almost every hole has different layout. Has a nine hole par 3 course which is well above average. Then nine normal holes again with varying layouts. All in excellent condition. Normally no queues after 9:30 during the week.

One 9 hole and short par 3 course

Been regular at hobbs cross for years, two courses, one a small par 3 testing your short game and one full 9 hole course.
Kept in great condition and variety of holes and a good test
Club do not allow bookings however and as such whole world descends at weekend and after work times meaning you can wait an age to tee off and pace is slow, would recommend on basis of good courses but get a booking system! Quite pricey can play an 18 locally for cheaper

Not very supportive for young children

My daughter and partner drove for half an hour to play a different and new course which had great reviews and was in lovely surroundings.
On arrival they were told that my child couldn’t be caddied for by her dad (She weighs 4 stone so unable to carry her own bag for a long period of time), he had three of his own clubs in her bag so they could both play but were advised this wasn’t allowed due to COVID. Golf is a sport that is very social distanced. They have played many courses in the area since lockdown restrictions were lifted and it has never been mentioned, in fact it’s more encouraged as they can go out in their own bubble.
For an up and coming superstar, she was so upset and felt discouraged and has since said she will never ever play the course and will pass on her experiences to all at her current club and lessons.
Instead of them worrying about two family members playing on their own and sharing a bag, they should have been outside on the first tee where there was a huge queue and not much social distancing being adhered to.
She left disheartened but then drove to her regular course and done 9 holes without any fuss and shot a 33 on a par 27. Not bad for an 8 year old little girl.
