Good track. Lovely putting surfaces, great bunkers. But upon arrival was told they don't offer tee times and we joined the back of 5 groups on the 1st. Members and staff strut around like it's Wentworth. Wouldn't rush back, can drive most of the par 4s
This was my first time playing at Braintree and I wasn't disappointed. The golf course as a whole was in immaculate condition from tee to green despite heavy rain the day before. The green were quick and a tester for my putting due to undulations as difficult to read and get line/pace right, but a real test which is good.
The course as a whole is not overly long, but features some testing hole. There does seem to be a lot of 'dog legs'!!!
It wasn't busy on the day we play and we got round quite quickly.
Overall, a great golf course set in lovely countryside especially the 18th which is next to a lovely church.
I recommend this course and will play here again.
As visitors to the club we were made to feel very welcome, especially by the (injured )Club Captain out on the very busy course. Thanks very much, we will come back!
