Visitor Information

We extend a warm welcome to guests to play our course at any time apart from all day Saturdays  and Sunday mornings.  These times are reserved for our members.

‘The West’ is in North Chingford, just ten minutes from the M25 and North Circular roads and close to Loughton, Chigwell, Waltham Abbey, Debden, Woodford, Barkingside, Epping and Enfield. Ilford, East London, Docklands and the City are just a twenty-minute drive away.

Designed by James Braid and opened in 1900, ‘The West’ boasts one of the finest, traditional championship, parkland courses in the area.  It winds its way through Epping Forest and has spectacular views in all directions including the London skyline.  The undulating fairways and the superb greens present golfers of all levels with a challenging, but fair test.
