... to the Royal Epping Forest Golf Club, a private club operating on a public 18-hole golf course in Epping Forest.
Founded in 1888, the first golf club to be established in Essex and the only one to bear the Royal title. The course is laid out over the historic hunting grounds of King Henry VIII and Elizabeth I.
Roaming in and out of Epping Forest, the course at 6,281 yards while not the longest, represents an interesting challenge to any golfer. Sidehill, uphill and downhill lies will test your skills as will the small greens that in summer are hard and fast and which, after more than a century, have many subtle variations.
