Playgolf Colchester is more than just a golf course. The revamp at the end of 2007 turned the club’s course into a 6,000-yard, par 70 course. The undulating parkland course features many hazards including a lake and river which come into play on five holes. The course is well guarded by 64 bunkers that have been strategically placed to catch every level of golfer and have been designed to accommodate the distances of modern golf technology.

Thanks to the USGA standard greens, the course is playable all year round without the need for temporary greens.
They pride themselves with their other great facilities at the club, which also include a 24 bay flood-lit driving range, which means it can be used all year round come rain or shine. 9 hole, par 3 academy course, putting green and short game practice hole.

The Teaching Academy is one of the busiest in Essex with professionals using both the GASP computer analysis system and the Explanar swing training aid. Playgolf Colchester will continue to encourage young and old alike, from beginner through to experienced golfer.

There are memberships to suit all needs at very competitive prices for the regular everyday golfer to the busy golfer who only gets the opportunity to play once or twice a month.
With weekly member’s competitions and a very busy social calendar they are dedicated to providing something for every golfer!

A warm professional welcome awaits you from the friendly team at the club house, offering you everything you need from a cup of coffee and slice of cake to a three course meal. Our food is locally sourced (where possible) and is freshly cooked every day.

When booking a Golf Society there is everything you need and a member of the team will be dedicated to ensure that your day is organised for you and that you are looked after from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. They are able to provide ultimate flexibility, so whether you require a selection of locally sourced, mouth-watering sit down dishes, a buffet or a barbeque, the head chef can ensure that everything goes exactly to plan.

Playgolf Colchester has a strong Junior section with over 100 members many of which playing in competitions.

They took on the task to achieve Golf Mark which is an outstanding achievement and are the only club in Colchester with the Golf Mark accreditation. This means they are nationally recognised as a club that provides outstanding teaching for juniors in a fun enjoyable and welcoming environment. Plus more importantly that there are strict procedures in place as each child’s safety is paramount when they are left in the club’s care.

Golf Mark has also meant they are able to apply for funding to encourage children to come and give golf a go, whatever their level of sporting activity is. There are many successful free taster sessions for children which have then led them to book group junior lessons and actively get involved with the game.

Playgolf Colchester is also the home of American Golf Colchester, which offers great prices and a wide selection of golf clothing and equipment.
