Don’t play when it’s been raining day before!

Walked off after 9 holes ,par 5 9th fairway from tee mat to green was like the Serengeti plains.take your wellies if rain has fallen within a month of Chingford.
Holes 1-8 were almost as bad.
Can’t believe they charge full price when course is in this condition

They can do better

I’ve played at Chingford for the last couple of years and have always considered it my ‘home’ course since moving to the area. But I think my patience has run out. My biggest gripe is with the winter tee boxes. Some of them are in such poor condition, they’re so worn down and muddy it makes it very difficult to get a solid stance without slipping. If we’re forced to use them they need to be in better condition. It’s a really easy fix that will make a world of difference. I won’t be back until the winter mats are gone, if at all.

Greens need attention

The greens need some attention, I know the weather has not helped but they are uneven. The course needs proper drainage but pace of play was good.

Winter

The mud slush from the rain has frozen up so chipping is difficult, but the fairways and greens are amazing for a public course as always. I love playing here , its just a shame I live in NW London where they enjoy charging extortionate fees around golf courses for amateurs.
The 9th fairway is in a bad way, course management is key to avoid the puddles.
Excellent value for money , I paid on a hot deal , can't wait to return 😀

First Time Playing

Good course

Enjoyed my first trip to Chingford in a wet and cold Sunday. I was paired up with a lad who’d played the course a lot, which was helpful as the layout does take a bit of getting used to given the public paths through the forest. Despite the awful weather, the course played well and was the right level of challenge for a medium/high handicapper. 18th is a lovely way to finish, hitting back towards the private clubhouse and the road, for some extra tension! The course is the same as Royal Epping Forest, with the Chingford course having a separate cafe and pro shop. Good value for money and right next to the overground and bus stops.

Good value for money

Picked up a hot deal for £12, which is great value for money for a public course. As expected after heavy rainfall, the course had some water retention in places and boggy areas but otherwise held up really well. Encouraging to see work going on too & the use of temporary tees. Wish other users could help by repairing their own divots which would really help the course!!

Great value

Used a Golfnow deal for our 3 ball. Friendly reception. Course in really good condition, more so considering high volumes of recent rains.
Certainly can't be criticism about lack of signage throughout the course! No 19th hole other than the cafe with no late opening.
Fantastic value all round.

Chingford golf course maintenance being carried out and not informed when booking or booking in.

We were disappointed and not warned when we booked in that all the greens had been hollowtined and heavily sanded, tees in fair condition, fairways very dry due to the warm weather.
Second cut and rough not maintained, leaves on fairways and subject to difficult to find any way would balls hit.

Good pace round in 4:30, but a few tees need attention and it would have been nice to have a water fountain or refreshments at the 10th
