West Essex Golf Club is a course I've wanted to play for a long time, and it was well worth the wait!
Tucked away from the madding crowds of northeast London with views overlooking Canary Wharf and the West End of London, this course has it all.
With beautiful fairways, testing Greens, and a varied layout, this course is a must for everyone in the area.
The Clubhouse is modern and light with friendly staff.
In addition, Jamie in the PRO shop couldn't have been more welcoming.
He advised me on the best way to approach the course as someone who had not played it before and told me where not to use the driver!
The course is very well maintained with pretty tee boxes and lush fairways.
However, it's a tale of two halves. The front 9 is tight and requires straight drives. But the back nine opens up, giving a little more forgiveness to the higher handicapper.
Not overly long, the course is very walkable (with some inclines) but watch out for "Cardiac Hill" on the 18th hole!
Primarily a 'Members' Club, I played at Guest rates (£35) which was very reasonable.
