Review's of Ilford Golf Club
Quality of Course
Value for Money
Quirky course, established parkland
Well disguised amidst the residential area, Ilford is a course worth finding. There have been some changes made, primarily reorganising the existing holes - changing the sequence for no apparent reason, however the changes do not detract from what is a pleasant course (in the dry season). There is limited scope for parking - so plan to arrive early to get a space near the crossovere bridge (yes you still have to cross over the North Circular road to get to the first tee. Course is well kept, generally, but work continues. I quite enjoyed the new layout, it seemed to make some sense and the day was good enough. Locals are welcoming, however the clubhouse wasn't open early on a saturday morning (so plan breakfast before arriving). Practice green is a fair reflection of actual greens, and there are a few places where greens and tees are close - so caution is recommended from time to time. Weekend prices seemed to have been increased from the previous regime - so it is less value for money than before - but just about the going rate for the weekend. Post round bar and cafe facilities were good, friendly and helpful staff.. in a well appointed bar area. All in all, a good day out but be prepared for increase in price and late opening of care/bar facilities. Pro shop is small but has enough to keep your attention (not a lot for the Ladies though).
