Course Details

Course Name: West Essex Holes: 18 Yardage: 6289 SSS: 70
The 18 hole par 71 course was thoughtfully created by James Braid in 1900 and designed to make full use of the landscapes natural attributes. The front nine is the shorter of the two and provides a test of accuracy with tree lined fairways that meander through the picturesque and undulating countryside. The back nine is equally challenging although slightly longer requiring more long iron play. The quality of the fairways and greens throughout is superb.

    There is always a challenge when you step on to the first tee of a long-established course - and West Essex is no exception. It is built into the contours of Epping Forest and can be tough going for those who stray off line; but it rewards those who hit long and straight and are prepared to accept the greens have a lot of subtle undulations. It pays to concentrate; a casual approach will send your score rocketing. Playing there soon after the Essex Open was staged, the course was in excellent condition. For me
    though, it's a case of 'better next time'.
