Pleasantly surprised at Chingford

Really good little course with plenty of challenges, not least the subtle breaks on the well maintained greens. Our 3-ball got round in bang on 4 hrs, and would have been quicker had we visited the forest less frequently!. Great value at £25 per on a Saturday morning, will definitely be returning.

Just bizarre

The course was ok, greens were in decent condition.

However the overall experience was the strangest I’ve had on a course. On the first tee I saw 4 teenage boys steal a mans ball off the 18th green and run off laughing. Not a great start!

As I went to tee off the first hole I looked down the hole and a man had a appeared in the middle of the fairway (he had not teed off). He proceeded to drop 6 or 7 balls out of his bag and started to hit into the 1st green.

After the 5th ball I decided to just hit my tee shot. It rolled up to about 20 yards behind him. Upon getting to my ball he started swearing at me and accused me of trying to kill him(????). I confronted him about all the balls he was hitting and he denied it. I then watched him walk to the green, pick all his balls up, go to the 2nd tee and hit 5 balls again. Every interaction I had someone else around the course was negative - will
not be returning.

Just go somewhere better

Yet another course that does nothing about slow play, regularly getting onto a tee at the same time as two groups in front but no marshall moving people along or telling groups to let others through. Course is not very interesting but nothing wrong with it. Greens very small but reasonable.

Good value for money

Seems like a nice course for beginners. Not fancy but seems reasonably well kept. Sure there are dog walkers every now and then but they also seem respectful to golfers.

Chingford Golf Course

A really good round of golf, staff very good, course in good condition, but did have to wait on a few holes.
It would be nice if a mobile drinks caddie came round or a halfway house for refreshments

Good course, shocking members

I can only comment on front 9 as we have up after 9 due to 4 men taking 2.5hours to play nine holes. MATCH PLAY!!

at one point we waited on the same fairway as them while we waited for them to look for a ball. We were a two ball. They didn’t even consider letting us through. They lost 2 holes on the other 4 ball infront of them.

Will not return due to the lack of etiquette. Apparently one of them was a course manager!! Real shame.

Great condition public course

In excellent condition, tight and pretty challenging course for learners and improvers, sharpens your game nicely, important to manage the course as rough and woodland is unforgiving. Beware dog walkers and ball collectors.

Staff very abrupt and unfriendly.
Course a bit scruffy in plsces but generally ok.
Pace very slow but to be expected on pay and play course. Greens generally good despite the traffic they must get. Overall a satisfactory casual round of golf with my wife. Won on the fourtenth which makes a change.
