    Garon Park now has an additional 9 holes totalling 27 holes with very testing greens. Whilst still a young course, it always proves a tough test for any golfer. You can bet the wind will be blowing hard even on a calm day !
    Once the new holes become more establish over the coming years, I think the course will be the most testing locally in terms of the unforgiving greens, and of course the constant breeze.
    Benefits to the members are the course is open 365 days of the year, which is very rare for the South East Corner of Essex.

    This is not one of the better venues in South Essex although the facilities and condition of the course are improving all the time. At under 6,000 yds, the course is not long but the layout is poor. Altogether there are six par threes and only four par fives. Two of the par threes are little more than a long flat fairways with a pin at the far end; on the back nine there are two par threes which are basically not as challenging as originally hoped when the course was constructed.
    From the yellow tees they are 108 yds and 120 yds. The Signature hole (17th) is the shortest and almost surrounded by ponds - or it would be if the level of the water hadn't dropped so much. The 9th and 18th holes return to the clubhouse and share the same large green which is also protected by water- obviously designed to give those sitting on the terrace an opportunity to tut-tut at players who finish up going into the water.
    Long hitters don't get any real advantage. I managed a respectable 39 pts in competition by taking irons from the tee on several holes and leaving a relatively easy shot with the second into the green. But that was on a warm day with a light breeze; when it blows hard the golf becomes a grind.
    No..don't rush to this course. There are others in the area, which are better.

    Over priced for a crowded and fully used course. This could also be said of the membership subscriptions.
