About the Club
The course may appear innocuous from the clubhouse but don't be fooled. Rising up and down three times from Chingford Plain into and out of Epping Forest, the course will provide a varied and interesting challenge of your skills.
With only three Par 3s and two Par 5s (three for the Ladies), the course is not long by today's standards. However anyone playing to their handicap here will have done well. and anyone who pars all three of the Par 3s will have done exceptionally well indeed!
To preserve the natural appearnace of the landscape, bunkers are only to be found away from the passing public gaze, on the upper holes, in the forest.
The 471 yard Par 4 finishing hole (Ladies par 5) to a green protected by water is a tough closing hole for anyone but the lower handicap player.
Epping Forest is an ancient deciduous woodland and the largest public open space in the London area. Dating from around 8000 BC the forest covers an area of about 6,000 acres, most of which is wooded. Much of the forest is designated a site of special scientific interest. It boasts a large number of ancient trees and a vast variety of flora and fauna, including woodpeckers, wood-boring beetles and fungi. Fallow deer, as imported by the Normans, still roam the forest.
