A Very Warm Welcome to Braintree Golf Club

Our Par 70 parkland course features tight tree lined fairways, water hazards and fast true greens, and is widely considered to be one of the finest in the county by amateurs and professionals alike, and currently enjoys 9th place in the top 100 golf courses in Essex.

Originally established in 1891 we are proud to be one of the oldest clubs in Essex, but also one of the most modern.

The course is playable throughout the year, with full tees and greens in operation at all times. Indeed for the winter 2013/14 we closed the course on just three days, and last winter 2014/15 we lost just a single day!

As a private members club we are proud of our hertiage, whilst looking equally to the future to provide an excellent golf course and facilities to our members. But at the same time we recognise the value of visiting players and societies alike, and whilst much of the time members have full access to the course, visitors and societies are made very welcome on weekdays throughout the year.

Aside from society bookings and occasional competition mornings and shotgun starts we do not operate any sort of tee booking system, but visitors are strongly recommended to contact the club in advance to avoid disappointment.

Our excellent practice facilities include a 500 yard long game practice area, 200 yard practice fairway, short game area with covered bays, chipping green and 18 hole putting green, and just recently our brand new purpose built practice nets.

Richard Wheeler is our resident PGA professional who has a long standing association with the club over some 25 years. Richard also runs the highly successful Richard Wheeler Golfing Academy. Click here for more details.

Away from the course we have a beautiful modern clubhouse, with excellent facilities including the main restaurant, two bars, a function room and panoramic views over the golf course from the patio.

But don't just take our word for it! Come and see for yourself... you'll be sure to receive a very warm welcome.

We are delighted to have recently developed a corporate sponsorship agreement with Cooper Chelmsford BMW.
