Forrester Park is set in beautiful Essex countryside overlooking the River Blackwater, in the village of Great Totham. It is within ten minutes of the A12 between Chelmsford and Colchester. The well-established 6073-yard par 71 parkland course has plenty of hazards to challenge players regardless of ability or handicap. With its tree-lined undulating fairways, the course is about accuracy rather than distance, judgement rather than strength.
“Lovely friendly little gem hidden in the countryside.” – Gerry S. July 2017
The club offers a range of memberships to suit most pockets and lifestyles and there are plenty of competitions for golf members.
We are open for greenfees daily and there are a number of golfing events open to non-members. If you play fairly frequently you may be interested in our player card which offers discounts on greenfees each time you play. Non-members are also welcome to use the practice facilities. Tee times can be booked by non-members up to six days in advance.
We welcome societies, charity days and corporate golf days any day of the week. Parties of 12 or more golfers are eligible to book as far in advance as they wish. Click here for more information on society days.
Group and individual coaching is available for all standards and ages. We also have a Novice Golfer Package which combines coaching and on-course practice and is ideal for beginners, improvers and those returning to golf after a break.
We have a welcoming clubhouse which is open every day and welcomes non-members for breakfast, lunch, morning coffee or afternoon tea. There is a licenced bar which is also open every day.

The greens are always a challenge and usually very pacey. The drainage on the course is second to none meaning that trolley bans are rare and the course is playable year round.- Challenging course
The clubhouse is an old converted barn with a very homely feel to it and all the staff are very welcoming.- Very welcoming
