World Class Golf

A course of two distinctive halves, West Essex’s 6,385-yard championship parkland course provides 18 superb holes, playing to a par of 71. The course is a real test of accuracy and power. Rarely do the professionals in PGA events subdue the ‘West.’

The shorter front nine holes put up a strong defence to low scoring with undulating narrow fairways, well bunkered greens and ominous out of bounds hemming in errant tee shots. The back nine is longer from the tees and is more open in contrast to the front nine.

The course sees significant changes with water hazards, copse lined fairways and sharp changes in elevation on the closing six holes. Overall, the course offers a stern test of positional play.

Our Heritage

Founded in 1900 the course was designed by the legendary James Braid. This Championship parkland golf course, partially draped across the folds of the ancient Epping Forest, is an outstanding example amongst the 400 courses he was involved with. The 270 degrees elevated views afforded from the front nine holes to the dramatic and vibrant London skyline will leave lasting memories of this demanding and challenging test of golf.
