Attraction details
Owner description: On 230 acres of rolling Essex parkland to the north of Gosfield Lake, the Lakes course has six separate lakes and these lakes come into play on eight holes. Golfers can enjoy the peace and tranquility away from the bustle of modern life. In this idyllic setting the course winds around and over the lakes, through woods and across streams in some of the most beautiful countryside in England. The Championship course here at Gosfield has the potential to become the ‘finest inland test of golf in England’ so said Sir Henry Cotton. Sir Henry was responsible for masterminding the design of the 6,600 yard Lakes course and the less demanding 9 hole Meadows course in association with golf architect, Howard Swan. Sir Henry is remembered by giving his name to his own particular favourite hole at Gosfield, the 14th ‘Cotton’s Choice’. There is a beginners ‘Meadows’ course available measuring 4990 yards and gives new golfers the opportunity to improve their game with double tees to vary the 18 holes. Please note: Soft spikes are required. Society bookings very welcome.Wedding bookings available, please contact us for more information.

The club is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year (2013). They are making a real attempt to bring the course up to a very high level. The main 18 hole course looked stunning. Tthere is also a small 9 hole course (par 64 I think). Quite short but not easy. Not in as good shape as the 18 hole course but very good value for money.
There is a very good chef who is there at certain times through the week. We had a great post golf meal on the terrace, main course was under £8.00. Food is served for most of the day.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area. They had some good deals on memberships.
One point to note that it is cash only for green fees. Not a problem as long a you know in advance. No cash machines for miles!
