Course Information

(Formerly South Essex GC), Herongate, Brentwood, Essex, CM13 3LW, United Kingdom
01277 811 289

The Heron Golf Club (formerly know as South Essex Golf Club) is situated just outside Brentwood in Essex (with easy access from J29 on the M25) and it provides the ideal location for a relaxing game of golf in tranquil surroundings with many mature trees and water hazards.

The Heron Golf Club offerspanoramic views over the Thames Valley and into Kent. The three 9 hole courses, Hawk, Heron and Vixen have been designed with spaciousness and nature in mind and have been blended into the established gently rolling landscape.

Varying the mix of course can give some interesting combinations. Every hole is completely different offering its own individual beauty, interest and challenge.

The 1st hole on the Heron offers a welcoming start to your round, a 577 yard par 5 can be reached in 2 shots, although beware because the green is protected by 3 greenside bunkers to trip you up.

The 6th is a 369 yard par 4, which slopes steeply towards the green and can be attacked off the tee to leave you a short chip shot onto the green. The 8th is a favourite with many visitors to the course.

A 190 yard par 3 with wind usually into your face provides a real test of your nerve. The 4th on the vixen course is a great attacking hole. A par 4 measuring 296 yards can be reached in one shot for the bigger hitters. Beware the water may catch you out off if you are left off the tee.
