A nine-hole Golfing Gem in Essex

Hole One

A good drive followed by a well struck second leaves a medium to short iron to a green protected on the left by a greenside bunker and an open ditch awaits the pushed shot.

Hole Two

A short par 4 with a left to right dogleg. The green is protected by bunkers left and right. A ball landing on the back of the green leaves a fast downhill putt.

Hole Three

A short par 3 played from an elevated tee. Two bunkers in front of the green await the under hit shot. A good tee shot sets up a birdie chance.

Hole Four

A good tee shot leaves a short iron to the green. Be aware of woodlands left and right off the tee.

Hole Five

A large Oak tree guards the left hand side of the green. The green is two tier and depending where the pin is positioned a 2 putt is not guaranteed.

Hole Six

This hole although a Par 4 has a unique shape and is unreachable in two by the average club golfer. It requires a good drive to the end of the fairway, followed by a second over the road leaving a medium to short iron to a green protected by two green side bunkers to the left.

Hole Seven

The green is long but narrow and is protected by two bunkers left and right.

Hole Eight

This hole has a severe dogleg right to left. With a woodland down the left hand side of the fairway a tee shot of 160/170 yards is required to leave a clear view of the green. The green is elevated and protected by bunkers left and right.

Hole Nine

A solid drive is required followed by a second shot which avoids two large Chestnut trees in the centre of the fairway. The third shot is to convex green.

Hole Ten

A good drive is a must to have any chance of reaching this green in two. The green is protected by a bunker to the left and an open ditch on the right.

Hole Eleven

The Drive is all important. An accurate drive is required to miss a large Oak tree to the left and a group of Poplars to the right. The second shot is uphill to a small green protected by bunkers left and right.

Hole Twelve

A second chance to find the green and set up a birdie chance.

Hole Thirteen

The longest Par 3 on the course measuring 250yds. Finding the fairway is all important, leaving a wedge to the green.

Hole Fourteen

Miss the green with your tee shot and you are left with a difficult up and down.

Hole Fifteen

A good drive over the road sets up a birdie opportunity.

Hole Sixteen

It is important to find the green off the tee. Bunkers left and right await the pushed or pulled shot.

Hole Seventeen

A small elevated green protected by bunkers left and right. An under hit tee shot leaves a tricky chip to secure your par.

Hole Eighteen

A hole that plays into the prevailing wind. A good drive, a well struck second leaves a low to middle iron to a convex green. Two large tree in the centre of the fairway need to be avoided with your second shot.
