    Stanford-le-Hope Social golfer with ambition
    The golf course was in excellent condition and was a joy to play, with only a minor issue that on both days, the course was very busy and the overall play was very slow. It took us four and a half hours on the Saturday and five hours on the Sunday to get round, which was very frustrating.
    Overall, we had a very enjoyable weekend, but spoilt somewhat with the slow course play.

    We had a bit of a buggy faff which was sorted out pretty quickly. Thanks Kevin.
    The course was generally it quite good condition except for the bunkers which on the whole were terrible. Most had sizeable amounts of water in them and sand which wasn't under water appeared and felt to be a mixture of sand and cement.

    If returned, would prefer a much earlier tee off. 11:00 seems to be the earliest time for non-members, but there was very slow play as behind competitions on Sat/Sun - taking nearly 5 hours for a round.
