The Golf Course

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 West’ is routed through the glorious Epping Forest at Chingford with picturesque views across the city of London, including landmarks such as Canary Wharf, the London Eye, the Shard, and Wembley Stadium.

Ranked in the top ten best in Essex by top100golfcourses.co.uk, the course is a real test of accuracy and power. The tree-lined front nine meanders through the forest, uphill and downhill, requiring accuracy and precision, while the back nine is flatter and longer, allowing you the opportunity to open your shoulders and let go. West Essex is also home to the smallest championship green in England, nicknamed ‘the Frying Pan’ by members, the 159-yard 5th is a short downhill par three where you are trying to land your ball on a green that measures just 14 yards.

The club is continuing to invest into the development of the course but always ensuring it offers a fair test of golf for all ages and abilities.
