The County Course at the Essex Golf & Country Club was designed by Reg Plumbridge and was opened for play in 1990.
Major investment was made during the building stage relocating many trees and the course has a maturity that belies its relatively young age. Since 1990 many changes and improvements have been made to the layout and the course has won critical acclaim for its challenging, yet fair holes.
Water is a particular feature of the course, with no fewer than 12 lakes strategically placed throughout this parkland setting. Indeed, with water in play on the par three 5th, par four 6th and par three 7th, getting to the turn 'dry' is somewhat of an achievement!
In addition to the 27 superb holes of golf, The Essex Golf & Country Club is a major sports and leisure complex. Moreover, with a 42-bedroom hotel on site, it is the perfect location for a weekend break.
