Good place to play
very nice place to play
Greens first class
fairways not to cleaver due to the hot weather we have had
Decent course for the price. Taxing holes with tee boxes and greens in good condition considering how hot and dry it has been.
Mardyke Golf Centre
Really enjoyed my first outing here and was pleasantly surprised. The greens were lovely although only just spiked. The fairways were a bit dry but overall there were plenty of challenges to keep you interested. My only complaint was the condition of the toilets. It looked like they hadn’t been cleaned for a couple of days. Other than that I thoroughly enjoyed the day and would recommend it.
Needs a lot of work
Greens are ok at best. Rest of course is terrible. Fairways and rough are really dry dust bowls. In last 10 days I have played 5 courses and this is the best. Not been looked after at all. Money needs spending to improve fairways
This is a super little course with some nice little holes and three cardkillers sitting in the front nine ... but navigate the course well and it can be a real joy and a card pleaser. Don’t be fooled though , the wind can really come into play here and there are big slopes and water for the unsuspecting .
The greens are wonderful for a course of this type and with its traffic
Only down side is it can be a slow round
But shhhhhh don’t tell anyone as we don’t want any more playing it !!!!!
Stupid shut at 8pm rule
Upon arriving for a round starting at 4:50pm was told that have to be off the course by 8pm.
This is not stated anywhere in the terms and conditions when booking so I asked to speak to the manager in case we didn’t finish.
The manager then tells me it’s not his fault that Golfnow don’t have it in their terms & conditions and that somehow we are not entitled to finish a full round as we booked a twilight round.
Course is ok, fairways burnt out / dry.
The Worst Course in Essex
We had booked online for 2 players to play at the course as we hadn't played it for a number of years. On arrival we said we had paid and that we were a 2 ball for our time. The person in the shop went no you are with the two on the putting green even though we had booked for 2. We were fine with that and said okay can we have a scorecard then to track our score, to which they replied, no we have run out just use your watch or something which was extremely rude the way he said that. Anyway we went out and started playing the course which you could hardly ever tell where the fairway and the rough started, the only decent parts were the greens which were in good condition. At 8:15 and on the 17th green a lady drove up behind us in a buggy and said course is closed you need to get off now, which we were surprised about as it was still fine and we had paid our money for 18 holes. She said no course is closed I am shutting you in and shutting the gate if you don't get off now. We asked if we could just play the last to which she answered no the course is shut at 8 it says it on the website maybe you should check it (we have checked and it says till dusk). What happened was she had enough and wanted to go home as we were the last people on the course. This is a course I will never play again, there are many other courses around which are far better quality and this is a waste of money. You couldn't pay me to play here again.
To much work going on
To many temporary winter tee’s when the tee boxes are in good condition, the 18th hole is a shambles with giant holes being fit out to what looks like to install new bunkers
These issues need to be made clear before people are making a booking very disappointed with the condition of the course
