Summary:

The Channels Complex is set in 300 acres of beautiful mature Essex parkland.
Founded in 1974 and starting life as a nine hole course on flat farm land. Over the years the course has expanded onto reclaimed gravel workings.
On 1st April, 1994 27 holes were complete and the Belsteads Course was opened.
In years to come more holes will be added and eventually there will be two eighteen hole courses.
Channels is our main eighteen hole course and mixes some of the old holes with some of the new. A magnificent course, boasting some of the finest greens in the county, superbly managed and kept in peak condition. Being mainly on restored land, it is quite unique to Essex with its numerous lakes and undulating fairways.
There are places where the lower handicapper may wish to test his prowess and "go for the carry" over the lakes, or mere mortals can take the safe route down the fairway. Watch out for the 17th, it's a real card wrecker!!
Belsteads is our nine hole course which has two different tees for both men and Ladies, so you can in fact play it as a full 18 holes.
Although it is not that long at 4779 yards it has three holes where water has to be negotiated and whilst it is an ideal course for golfers new to the game, it is still a good challenge for the more accomplished player.
The combination of the excellence of the golf courses and the superb hospitality ensure Channels is an excellent venue to host both private and corporate golfing events.

Channels is a nice course. There are some really nice picture holes. Water hazards on some holes. The course is in a very good condition.
