The 18 hole course was first designed, in 1962 by renowned maestro of English Golf, Henry Cotton, whose outstanding feature was that both loops of nine holes started and finished at the clubhouse. Since then and as the course matured, a number of strategic changes and improvements have been made, making it one of the finest courses in the County. The superb 18 hole par 72 Championship Golf course totalling 6704 yards is set in 240 acres of beautiful parklands with some of the best views of the Essex countryside. To complement the championship course there are extensive practice facilities including a driving range, 18 hole putting green, chipping area and practice bunkers. PGA professional tuition is also on hand, together with a well-stocked Pro Shop satisfying every persons needs. The Clubhouse and terrace is conveniently situated in-between the 1st and 10thTees and hosts spectacular views of the course and Essex countryside. Eating at Abridge is always a pleasure. Our restaurant, with its beautiful views, is always popular for cooked breakfasts for early golfers and Sunday lunches for the whole family. There is also the Spike Bar available which offers drinks and snacks throughout the day for golfers in a hurry.
