SOME REVIEWS OF GOLF AT FORRESTER PARK

Made to feel welcome from the off
“I found the course to be in good condition considering the time of year and the cold temperatures we experienced over the weekend. I’ll be the first to admit that I am not a fantastic golfer so I may not be the best placed person to ask, mind you! The course was recommended to me by my Grandfather, who has played a few society golf days at Forrester Park. Value for money was exceptional at £28, the food and service were excellent. But, at the risk of getting on my ‘high horse’ what I was most impressed with was the laid back nature of the club. Considering my playing partner and I are in our mid 20s, golf clubs tend to think we’re just a couple of young ‘upstarts’. We were made to feel welcome from the off. It was also good to see the club encouraging young golfers, we played behind a 3-ball, all of which were junior golfers. You’ve got a good club there. We’ll be back, I’m sure!” Josh, Jan 2017

Very friendly and sociable
“Not the longest course but a challenge for all standards. Very friendly and sociable club.”  Terry D, Dec 2016 [Golfshake 4/5]

Nothing was a problem
“Very good day, staff were very cheerful and nothing was a problem. The course was in very good condition and the greens were excellent. Will be returning soon.”  Kevin H, Oct 2016, handicap 21.4 [Golfshake 4/5]

Definitely be returning
“Just a thank you to the staff at Forresters for making our trip there so enjoyable.  From the chap that opened up and cooked us breakfast to the lady behind the bar after we had finished our round and served us  our inclusive drinks.  The course and especially the greens were in great condition.  Once again many thanks and we shall definitely be returning.”  Phil Salmon, October 2016

Greens are lightning fast

Hidden gem
“Excellent course, very challenging by far the best greens I’ve ever putted on, very fast and smooth. The club house is very quaint old style wooden beams. Friendly staff. A hidden gem in the Essex countryside.”  Mark S, Jul 2016 [Golfshake 5/5]

Very good condition
“Very good condition fairways and nice greens”, Jerry B, Jul 2016, handicap 18.4 [Golfshake 4/5]

Thanks for a great day
“May I just commend you on your lovely course and friendly atmosphere at your club. We arrived to a very nice lady who was welcoming and did us a bacon roll. All aspects of the club were great. Mostly though was the course I have only played once since it was 18 holes and that was 15 odd years ago but how it’s changed, all the trees have got big and it has matured brilliantly. You should be very proud. Thanks for a great day.” Paul B, June 2016

Love playing it
“Great course love playing it.” Kevin L, February 2016

Greens fantastic
“I have played Forrester Park a few times and I absolutely love the course. It’s not particularly long, which suits my game but you have to be very accurate off the tee and will have to hit over trees on numerous holes. The greens are fantastic and run very true. The clubhouse service was excellent afterwards. I will be visiting again!!” Nick H, January 2016 [Golfshake 5/5]

Greens excellent
“Greens excellent given Dec round……”, Richard T, December 2015, handicap 20.5 [Golfshake 4/5]

Rated 5 out of 5
Tom P, August 2015, handicap 26.8 [Golfshake 5/5]

Attention to detail
“The first time I’ve visited this course as part of a society day on 24 July.  The welcome and attention to the detail was excellent.  Despite it raining for the whole round, the experience was great. The course isn’t too difficult but does have some memorable holes requiring good strategy.  The fairways and tees were in good condition and the greens better than that.  I can’t opine on the bunkers as I never went in any…!  We are certainly planning to re-visit this place as it would be good to play with the weather being somewhat kinder.  Well done to all those involved in the place.” Martin, July 2015
