What a bargain, terrific course in great condition and lovely people running the establishment what more could you want to enjoy a great round of golf
First of all the name is Chingford Golf Course not Club. I have played golf here since 2000, so nearly a decade and i have seen every change possible here. The course was very poor when i came here but since Andy Traynor has been here the course has gone from strength to strength. The holes have now got shaped fairways, well placed areas of rough to catch out the long hitters, ditches to watch out for and fast, true greens. For the pass 4 years we have not played on temporary greens or tees. The course is changing every year with new tees and features being added to make the course better and more challenging. This is a golf course you will learn to hit all kinds of shots and shapes, because of this it is one of the best i have played, it does however need that extra bit of length as it is only 6300. The facilities at the course are better than they were. Have got practice nets availiable to use, a practice putting green next the 1st tee and a new tee area on the practice field. Also a new indoor facility is being built and hopefully availiable to use very soon. The cafe serves top quality food and drink from 7.30am til 4pm in winter 5pm in summer. A yardage chart is needed at the course and they are looking to design this year, although there are yardages availiable on the course (100 and 150's). The review before this one, sorry but you aint got a clue. The only time you ever have to chip out sideways is when your in the thick stuff 50 yards from the middle of the fairway and so you deserve to chip out sidewards and how can you expext to have control of the ball as well!!! If you don't like a firm, hard golf courses, reccomendation- don't play summer golf! Also learn how to chip and run, very helpful when playing chingford and most other courses in the world. The prices are £20 or £16 on weekdays, £25 or £22.50 at weekends. Well worth playing for that price and you will never forget this place and you will enjoy your time here. Remember to bring your red top- its the bye-law!
Green fees have increased slightly to £16 Mon-Fri (£8 for over 60's) Condition of course very good, greens are by far the best for miles. Off course facilities have been upgraded.Lot of effort has been made by Andy (Pro) to improve all aspects of the course. Some of the holes will tax golfers of all standards. Putting on the 3rd,will be remembered by many! Weekends can be busy, but weekdays are a joy. Normally you can book a tee-time of your choice up to 7 days in advance.
Played Chingford this Sunday gone and was very impressed with it's condition. Greens were magnificent; fast and true, Tee's and fairways as they should be, well watered and green. THe course has plenty of dog legs but isn't particularly long, It has a lovely, peaceful woodland feel to it, represents good value for money and is recommended as a friendly club and being able to get a decent tee off time. Just be aware that being open to the public you do get a few 'poor quality' players, we played through 3 particularly poor groups but still managed a 4 hr round! Don't forget your red top. It is a public right of way and the red top distinguishs you from the walkers! Enjoy!
We play this course every couple of weeks. Its overall condition is good, and the greens are very good. Mon to Wed, all those over 60 pay 7 pounds after 9.30am. Well worth a visit
A pretty woodland course on public parkland - you have to wear a red top to identify you from other park users. The greens are generally decent but the fairways - especially in summer time - can be extremely poor and virtually hardpan. Many fairways slope off and consequently many a fine drive ends up in some serious rough - extremely annoying. Most par 4's are blind and this is a little repetitive. All the par 3's and 5's are good holes. A straight hitters course for mid handicappers. Not challenging enough for low handicappers and infuriating for beginners who may loose a lot of balls!
I was not particularly impressed. At first glance attractively set amongst trees but I regard the greens as really quite poor. I have played some twilight rounds here at a deep discount price because at that price it is worth it. The twilight round fee has just been increased and having driven away without playing because of the increase can honestly say that in my opinion the course is not worth its green fee.
i THINK THIS IS A GREAT COURSE BECAUSE WITH MY MAGIC ABILITIES THIS COURSE REALLY SUITS ME ITS ALOT BETTER THAN THE NEVER NEVER LAND ONE CAPTAIN HOOKS HANDICAP IS 99999 THAT IS BETTER THAN TIGER WOODS WENDY IS A GREAT WOMENS PLAYER AND I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO THE TELETUBBIES. I LOVE YOUR COURSE
A great course, over 100 years old. The way it is set into the forest means that there is always something to watch out for and on some holes any spurious drives /irons mean that some neat 'inventiveness'is required. Try to birdie number 10, a par five 563 yards up hill with trees and ditches and normally into any breeze there is. A good test of golf.
