Playgolf Colchester is much more than your average golf course. It’s the perfect place to enjoy both a hit on your own or with friends, while also serving up everything you need for a great family day out. There are 27 holes in total across this Essex complex, including an 18-hole, par 70 parkland course which stretches for 5,895 yards. With its well-kept fairways and USGA-spec greens, the course was redesigned and redeveloped in 2006 to enhance the quality and playability on offer. Presenting lovely views across the Colne Valley and with the river flowing through the course, Playgolf Colchester also has a 9-hole academy course for honing your skills. Plus, there’s a driving range, adventure golf course, restaurant, gym and treatment rooms, while you can also try your hand at footgolf. Yes, pun intended.
Close to the centre of Colchester, the complex has a great location near junction 27 of the A12. This gives you easy access to Ipswich to the north east, as well as Chelmsford and London in the opposite direction, with plenty of on-site parking available. Trains to Colchester from London’s Liverpool Street station take just 45 minutes, while it’s a similar journey from Norwich. There are a number of bus routes which take you close to the course from the centre of Colchester, including the number 65, 66, 70 and 754, although they may leave you with a walk of several hundred metres.
Whilst you wait... just think about being in your swimmers, the sun's out and the smiles are big
