Bentley Golf Club was established in 1972 and was designed by Alex Swan who has worked on a number of outstanding courses in the eastern region. In May 2004 the Golf Club was purchased by the Members and is now one of the premier Clubs in the county thanks to the investment that has been made by the Members. Bentley has hosted a number of county events including the Essex County Championship and is also a regular venue for the Essex Captains.
The Course has attained a silver ranking in the HSBC Regional Course Rankings. The course is laid out over an undulating terrain that has a wealth of mature, mixed species trees with many water features. The golf course extends to 6,703 yards (par 72) from the white tees and comprises four par 3's, ten par 4's and four par 5's. There is also a practice ground, Clubhouse and Professional Shop facilities.
Hole 16 is our signature hole and is a par 4 with an acute dogleg to the right. The golfer has two options for his shot to the green either the long carry across the lake that fully protects the green or a lay up and rely on a pitch and putt to achieve his par.
