About Castle Point "Canvey Island Golf Centre as well as being perfectly positioned on the banks of the Thames Estuary, has panoramic views over Hadleigh Downs and castle, a beautiful stone 13th century keep and bailey fortress from where Henry VIII watched his fleets go off to war." "Changeable coastal breezes and a network of open ditches make for an interesting game where club selection is paramount."

Club Comment February 25, 2013

Don't even get out of bed for this one as the course is by far the worst i have ever played, the greens are like the fairways the fairways are like the semi rough the semi rough is like very thick rough and the rough is like the Amazon rain forest, it's a disgrace.
I'm local to the area and have played this course quite a few times over the years  and it has never been the greatest course in the world but i have never seen it in this state, since Glendale took it over it's gone to pot.
They should be ashamed as Castle Point when cut is a very interesting course especially when the wind gets up.
Me and the fellow golfers i were with said that we will never play this course again, as said in a previous post you shouldn't lose balls on the fairway i lost 2.
Stay well away, well until they sort it out that is.

Having read some of the reviews about this course I have waited to play it till I saw some positive reviews.
The course itself is in reasonable condition for a municipal course, well manicured and fast greens. It looks like the powers that be have listened to the critical reviews and have taken action. Only one criticism though, the greens were part bleached, dry as a bone and cracking. A bit of a worry this early in the year, especially as there are water sprinkers surrounding every green. It's obviously an improving course that's moving in the right direction. Once they learn how to use the sprinklers that is.
