Donald Ross Masterpiece

10 Stars. Essex County Club is a Donald Ross Masterpiece. Plus he was The Golf Pro on site for 7yrs!! He Adored the club and especially the members
Like the Curtis Sisters, And Jack Nies
Seeing that ECC cracked the Golf Digest Top 100 I had to post a comment.
I was Not a member of this club. I was the Bar Manager. (but played the course prolly 100 times) All thru the 90s.
It's truly an Amazing Country Club, Great History. The Golf Course is a Donald Ross Masterpiece! The Greens have false fronts, run offs, one green has a BATHTUB swale in in the middle. It's a Thinking Mans Course..not long..but its Tricky! I'd like to acknowledge The Members. ALWAYS Treated myself, The BarStaff , ProShop, Waitstaff , Kitchen Very.Very Kindly, They are Classy and Darn Good Golfer's!! The BOYS of Summer especially. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to be there during the Tiger Era. Hope everyone is well. Insurance is certainly not as.Fun..
