Description
Romford Golf Club was originally designed by Open Champion James Braid and in more recent years has been used as a Qualifying venue for "The Open". Rumour has it that there is a bunker for each day of the year and it certainly seems that way! Situated just a couple of miles from junction 28-29 on the M25 and only 18 miles from the centre of London. We welcome Golf Societies on weekdays, except Wednesday, for a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 40 players.

Well worth a visit

Lovely mature parkland layout, warm up is available in a couple of nets or a range by the first tee and a large putting green. The overall course is in good condition with teeing area better than some greens I have seen, the greens were fast and true with some obvious slopes and some subtle. The fairways were a little bare in places owing to the lack of rain recently, there are a few holes with blind doglegs requiring placement rather than distance, and a few trees and hedges to catch the wild shots. Overall a fair course. I was playing a match representing my club against Romford hence the green fee was gratis so can't comment on pricing. Clubhouse hospitality was first class nice comfy leather chairs, in the James Braid room, and great food.

I'd hoped it would be better!

I've heard a lot about Romford as it is one of the oldest and most prestigious clubs in my area. So when I got a chance to play it on a Sunday for £35 I took it(I was with a Golf Professional). Romford don't like pay and pays but we managed to get a decent enough deal. The first few holes seemed interesting enough, but then there's a lot of crossing over and a few matted tees (three I think). The course was dry enough considering the rain we've had. But a lot of the holes were samey. The greens ran true but a little slow. The bunkers were sparse for sand. Fairways were long with very little run & with 450 yard par fours tough for us shorter hitters. It was nice enough for this time of year but its usually £65, and its certainly not worth that. Its a very traditional club with a very traditional tight parkland course.
It was a very windy cold day to play a tight course that you don't know your way around, I'm sorry but I did not feel the love...but that's just me!

A WELL LOOKED AFTER MEMBERS CLUB

I went to Romford Golf Club with a member today. I found the course to be in very good condition especially the greens, although most of them are quite tough to play. I also found the other members on the course pleasant to talk to but that may be down to the fact that I was with another member. The clubhouse is quite traditional with an added bonus of a mini museum dedicated to James Braid, the course designer. I would say this course is well worth a visit although it plays quite tight in places.

LET DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!

Its a shame to have to write a review about the club again,focused just on the members.
This is a great course in great shape,the only problem is the some members make you feel very hostile,and not welcome.
I was challenged today,by A LADY member,telling me I had no standing on the course,and should be letting the members through behind me playing a club comp.
I already let a few groups through,and was not going to be dictacted to by someone who should have been playing her own game.
A few more comments where made about visitors,playing on their own.I told her and the guys she was playing with,a few facts,that I had paid my green fee my bag tag on show,and what I felt about being challenged by a total stranger.
If I had broke the rules fair enough,put me right.This has given me a very different view of a golf club I enjoy playing.
IT WILL BE A LONG WHILE BEFORE I GO BACK.
there are plenty of other courses around us T.S.Gers can play

ONE OF THE BEST COURSES IN THE AREA

This club will take a lot of beating it gets better every year,the warm welcome from Chris Goddard the PRO,sets you off in a positive mood.
The Green Fees are £25,great VFM.
The course is quite tight and needs thinking about,there are a variety of holes,you will use every club in the bag.
A course planner is a must,there are bunkers aplenty and sited for purpose(beware).The fairways are good,and the greens are fantastic to putt on,very tricky to read as well.
This course is a regional qualifying for the "BRITISH OPEN" so it does have character and standing.
This is one that I would seriously consider joining,its
a typical English Golf Club,with loads of tradition.
Well worth a visit

A bit tight but very pleasant

Restricted for space to expand here, a number of tees play back over the previous green which could be awkward if the course was busy; fortunately it wasn't when we visited and we had a very enjoyable round. No stand-out holes, but a bit of variety. The half-way house is well placed and the clubhouse welcoming.

Compact and Bijou.....

All in all I liked this course! At first glance the course is flat and uninteresting but as you go round, you start to notice that there has been some real thought put in to it. Greens were good, Bunkers are a plenty and there a couple of very nice par 3's. Not particularly long but with some tight fairways and hidden water features, I suspect it would look great in the summer. All the members were friendly (although the Pro shop could be more cheerful) and whilst a little pricey at £25 midweek, it is worth a visit.

Good Course with benefits

Hosts some county events therefore has good facilites and excellent course management.
I think there was a bunker for every day of the year. So watch out for the sand.
