Summary:

Hainault Forest Golf Complex offers golfers of all standards the choice of two picturesque and challenging courses, supported by excellent practice facilities and a friendly and relaxed clubhouse. The Courses (known as the Upper and Lower courses) date back to 1908 and 1923 with par values of 70 and 72 respectively and both courses were designed by the five times open champion JH Taylor. The Lower Course hosted the 2003 Essex Amateur Championships final and was the first pay and play golf course to be awarded such a prestigious accolade. The course is a par 72 and is a very good test of the long hitter, rewarding accurate long tee shots, but punishing poor course strategy. The Upper course hugs the hillside closest to the country park. The course has tighter fairways and is more hilly than the lower course. Although it is shorter and has a par 70, the upper course is still a very good test and will punish the wayward golfer. Visitors are always welcome to come and take a look around Hainault Forest Golf Complex and our staff are always more than happy to answer any questions or to give a guided tour.

Facilities:

Large clubhouse, Bar, Catering, Professional shop, Golf driving range with teaching facilities.

Lower course, plays longer than upper, conditions very good, now this club has a new owner they are putting a great deal of effort in to make this a top course as it should be. greens are starting to run fast as this is how they are making them, I think a few more months and it will get there.

Played here last week and found the course quite tough over the first few holes but it eases off over the final four. A rich tree-lined parkland course with some fantastic views over London, it was a little bare in places and the greens needed a cut - they were longest I've seen this year anywhere! Otherwise a nice enough course and if you wish to see some of the Essex stereotypes in action - this is the place!!

The upper course is very hilly, but shorter than the lower course. Both courses have a variety of holes. This club gets very busy at a weekend, especially in the summer months. Well worth a visit
