    RE: Your review of Fairlop waters.
    As a new golfer to Fairlop waters, may I suggest a revisit to fairlop waters ( your last visit 1998 )This course has recently taken off as a links type course and now enjoys the overflow of golfers who are fed up with the long que which awaits them at Hainult course just up the road. Fairlop is very well manicured and the greens are in excellent condition. Still only £16 at the weekend !

        Hey mate,
        I was thinking of taking the new girlfriend out. She's only played a few times so she'll hack it around so I am just after a course that's nice and easy and let her have some fun. Do you think Fairlop will suit? Also is easy to get on on a Saturday or Sunday? What time is best? can you hire clubs there as well?
        Cheers mate

    Fairlop Waters is easily accessible by the Central line tube network, If you take the Central line to Fairlop and turn left after leaving the tube station, You will see Fairlop Waters on your right hand side after a short walk (about 500yards).
    On to the course proper, As a general overview Fairlop is a very flat, very open Golf Course. The fairways are wide and the greens are very generous. A club that I recommend highly to High handicappers and Low handicappers alike.
    Don't allow yourself to be put off by the fact that it's called Fairlop WATERS as there really isn't any WATER on the course itself. However it is next to a boating lake and the first time I played one of my friends told me that the 3rd Tee was 120yards over part of the lake, if I hadn't looked at the course map I would have been quaking.
    The biggest hazards are the ditches that criss-cross the entire course, but that said they aren't too bad if you play the correct shots. There isn't much sand on this course and the sand that there is, is easy to escape from being in the main fairway bunkers.
    The Par 3's range from 120yards to 200yards and are very straight, the Par 4's upwards from 200yards and either very straight or slight doglegs, the Par 5's Binocular range are probably the hardest holes on the course.
    As I have already said well worth a visit to a club that doesn't charge an arm and a leg (£13.50). For those of you who are getting on in years and don't feel up to walking 6Km, There are Buggies available (sorry, but I don't know the charges).
