Nice little course, needs a bit of work
The course layout is fine and some of the holes are quite challenging. I had expected the course to be in better condition given its lack of use over the last year. I found some of the fairways to be quite patchy. The greens were however well maintained though their pace was variable. My main criticism of the course was the state of the tees. The grass on the tees was long in places and completely bald in others. There had been a lot of rain prior to my round and the tees were very wet and slippery making difficult to maintain a stable stance.
Overall it is good value for money and it would not take much to improve it significantly.
Pity about the course maintenance staff
I’ve played here a few times and have been frustrated at the green keepers cutting greens and fairways oblivious to the golfers needs. Wait in centre of fairway whilst green being cut, flag out without acknowledging golfers waiting to play.
First time at little channels.
Very friendly and helpful staff, great facilities and overall a well spend couple of hours.
I would highly recommend.
9 holes,pay & play
A compact course with some good par 3 holes. Good condition but the greens were all a different pace
5 star Course and Range
Great little 9hole course and driving range, with slick greens and well kept fairways. Nice little challenge for the average golfer. Pro’s also very helpful on the range, love the rugby post targets and lots to aim at.
Great Little course with excellent greens
Little Channels has become my course of choice for 9 holes around Herts and Essex. Good Tee Boxes, Weed Free fairways, favourably cut rough as we enter Autumn / Winter and the best Greens around in this price bracket. Far better than competitors at Rivenhall, Notleys and other more established 18 holes courses.
The course starts with an easy Par 3, but be careful, the down hill 100 yard shot catches many out and can destroy a round before it’s begun. Beyond that the course rewards risk takers but doesn’t overly penalise the beginners that find fairways.
9 holes here are better than 18 elsewhere
I've played little channels a few times the past few months and I am always impressed by the quality of the greens, which although can be fast or slow tend to be blemish free. The course can be challenging, particularity because the 4 par 3s make or break your round, but 2 of the par 4s are gettable for most mid to high handicappers. Would like to see the 18 hole layout available at some point but will be back for 9 soon.
