Testing

Having played here a couple of times before ,particularly during the really hot weather, the rain has certainly helped, its a little more lush now but still most balls roll for miles if hit in the right spot. Quite a testing course but a good challange. The par 3 3rd? Just wow, one of my playing partners missed his par put by 1 inch on the low side and ball turned 90 degrees and off the green, his next was a foot short and rolled back off the green. My bogey put was 6 inchs long and rolled back into the hole, funny but ridiculous.

Nice well established course

From their web page: Chingford Golf Course was originally established in 1888 as the Royal Epping Forest Golf Club (REFGC)..... A later 1920s redesign is attributed to James Braid.

The REFGC still exists and their clubhouse overlooks the 1st tee and 18th green. But for us TSGers the pro shop, cafe and carpark are across the road, which is fine. The tees were somewhat worn and bumpy but overall the course was in good condition. Even with 12 par 4's there is a good variety of holes. I suspect some of the big-hitters will be a bit disappointed - so long as they stay accurate :-)

I didn't notice any practice facilities or use the cafe. Staff in pro shop were friendly and helpful. I'll happily play there again.

It is public space, so there will be dog walkers, non-dog walkers, cyclists etc. about. But they seem friendly enough and keep to footpaths. Just be aware.

established parkland course

Although the course suffered from a lot if recent rain, the general condition of this course was OK, just a fair amount of muddy bits. An interesting layout, elevation changes, hazards and dog walkers abound. There are some feature holes here, greens are slick and tricky and in the wind this course is a challenge. There is a members clubhouse, we have been invited from time to time but our usual meeting place is the old cafe, adjacent to adequate parking. T'is OK to set up gear and golf shoes are acceptable in the cafe. Food is good, service with a smile although not inexpensive.

Dog walkers and strollers make a welcoming distraction from time to time and locals are generally friendly enough, some even help to locate errant balls...

In short, deals can be had here, all you have to do is ask.

This is a place to see more than once...
