Theydon Bois Golf Club

Last Updated:

What we say

The original course was designed in 1897 by James Braid, five times a winner of the Open. Apart from being a golfing legend Braid was a golf course designer of great distinction. His most notable achievements being the designs of the championship courses Gleneagles and Carnoustie.

The course is truly unique, with 9 of the fairways being narrowly sculptured out of the ancient forest, pleasantly contrasting with 9 wider and winding fairways. Subtly borrowed greens are guarded by strategically placed bunkers, all of which make this par 68 course a real challenge for all standards of player.

Since Braid's time, Theydon Bois Golf Course has undergone many changes in order to deliver the standards and facilities required by members of a modern golf club.

However, the essential character of the course has not changed and the joy of playing golf in a traditional English forest in the rolling countryside of Essex prevails.

    Short but very tight forest course with several holes bounded by OOB (10 yards behind a couple of greens). Best options are long irons/woods off the tee. Tree-lined fairways can also be a problem for badly positioned approach shots. A some fairways have ornamental hedges running across them. Greens quite tough & have plenty of breaks. Tees & bunkers could do with some work. Clubhouse was friendly if a little old fashioned (no mobiles, shirts/ties after 6 etc). Reasonable course but I wouldn't want to play it every week.

    You need to have your A-game here. Precision and putting is everything. Good luck - you certainly need it
