Bentley Golf Club was established in 1972 designed by the Swan Family who have worked on a number of outstanding courses in the eastern region. The Club, purchased by the Members in 2004, is now ranked as one of the premier Clubs in the County. Bentley continues to host 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.
