Golf Break from £135 per person

Located just 15 minutes from Wivenhoe House is one of the top 10 golf courses in Essex. Designed by 5 times Open Champion, James Braid, the course at Colchester golf club offers a challenge to players of all levels.

Colchester Golf Club is an 18 hole, par 70, SSS 71, gently undulating heathland, with fast-running fairways lined by firs and oaks. This is one of the best courses in Essex. Four par 3s but only two par 5s means that scoring below 70 is more difficult than it might seem at first. Possibly the greatest threat comes in the form of tightly-bunkered approaches to the subtly-contoured greens.

With the pleasant terrain, short walks between green and tee, and a sunny climate, this is a lovely place to be and to play golf. The condition of the course is excellent thanks to the hard work and care put into it by the green keeping staff . The club has hosted the 2007 the Essex Open (PGA), the Essex Amateur Championship, the East Anglian Amateur Championship and in 2008 & 2014 the prestigious Eastern Region PGA Championship followed the Eastern Region Championship Pro-Am.
