Blakes 18 hole Championship inland-links course is rapidly maturing into one of the top golf courses in Essex. The challenging layout incorporating our signature 8th hole with an island green (remeniscant of the famous 17th at TPC Sawgrass) is a fair test for all Essex golf players. Generous tees, undulating fairways, sleepered bunkers and firm, smooth running greens are all features of Blakes!
Visitors are very welcome at Blakes, particularly on the weekends when we offer green fees from £10.
When you want to relax after your round there is no better place than the relaxing atmosphere of the Blakes Clubhouse. And if you are feeling peckish during the week the Pro Shop offers light-bites and at weekends the Blakes Brasserie offers a selection of food.
We can tailor your perfect golf society day in Essex – from breakfast options to multiple rounds of golf to lunch and dinner menus we can meet your needs.
