The Abbots Championship Course at Stapleford Abbots Golf Club is the main course of the two on offer here.
Made to exacting USGA standards, the tricky greens might catch you out but well-hit putts run very true along these rolling green.
The Abbots course has 11 separate water hazards which all come into play and are sure to catch out any stray shots.
Although specifically designed for the better golfers, the Abbots provides a hard but fair test to golfers of all abilities.

Average fairway conditions. Poor bunker conditions. No marshalling of poor golfing society taking 5+ hours. No food available after 4PM even though we played on Open Championship final Monday. 12 people wanted food at 4:10pm. Rudest bar person in the world, on making a polite enquiry about food. Menus on the bar and all tables, but no food available. Spoke to manager, promised redress. 6 days later, still waiting. I used to be a member and they wonder why I didn't renew. You may feel this is sour grapes. A 75 year old asked what time food finished, the answer - 'it's finished, isn't it'. Enquired again, wanting an answer for future reference and got the same answer. Didn't listen didn't care. Buggy required ear defenders, no alternate available , exhaust rattling. Green's cored, grass had regrown, but looked and played like a bumpy chessboard. I only had 28 putts, but would have expected to be sub 24. It is advertised as a championship course. It isn't.
Played mid week on a 2 fore 1; course was in great condition particularly the greens (not that it helped my putting!). Not very long but you have to think your way round, a good test and an easy flat walking course. Lots of holes going right to left and plenty of well placed ditches and bunkers. Would definitely go back, beer was a little pricey though.
Scored 38 points, my best ever as a 28 handicap but course & club were just average compared to my home club (Benton Hall, Witham) and others i've played. No real complaints though
Me and a mate booked a round throught the today's golfer website, we got a great deal through the site a were made to feel very welcome at the club, the course was excellent and we will most certainly be going back!
