About the Courses The Upper Course
This course hugs the hillside closest to the country park. The course has tighter fairways and is more hilly than the lower course. Although it is shorter and has a par 70, the upper course is still a very good test and will punish the wayward golfer
The Lower Course
This course hosted the 2003 Essex Amateur Championships final and was the first pay and play golf course to be awarded such a prestigious accolade. The course is a par 72 and is a very good test of the long hitter, rewarding accurate long tee shots, but punishing poor course strategy, beware not to be tempted to mimic Tiger!

The reviews we're showing are indeed ancient, do please send us new reviews about this course!!

Reviews I have read about this course are outdated and frankly wrong.
No longer are the fairways full of divots - the bunkers are fine and the greens excellent. The course has just hosted a PGA Regional event and the inspectors from the PGA were full of praise. I suggest some of the people who reviewed this course some three or four years ago come back and reconsider. They will be surprised !
Barry Balbes (Pre 2010)

Played the lower course on the 15th August 2007.
A fantastic course with some great holes and lovely views.
The only problem I found was the fairways, greens and bunkers!
This is a public course and is very busy at weekends and the course is suffering because of this.
The number of divots on each hole that had not been repaired must have been in the hundreds. Each hole had at least four or five pitch marks on it. And there were footprints in each bunker despite there being two or three rakes.
I would still recommend you play the lower course as I prefer this course to the upper course.
The upper course is very hilly and I would recommend you hire a buggy if you're not very fit. The lower course is not as hilly but I'd still say hire a buggy.
Russell Middleton (Pre 2010)

A very impressive course, boasting a variety of challenges as well as an immaculate kept course. Two courses, the upper and lower both equally as challenging as one another but i recommend the upper course. Quite a few holes play blind from the tee so be wary of the group in front of you. The hills do take their toll on your legs so if you normally struggle i would say hire a buggy.
All in all an excellent golf course.
