Daily Golf Course status updates & course maintenance information. In order to enhance the quality of our golf course it is necessary to carry out essential maintenance and will post status on this page.
Hi everyone and I hope you are all enjoying Abridge Golf Club?
The Golf course is coming together nicely, but to quote the great lyrics of the 70’s song ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet! ‘ We have so much planned to increase the course’s presentation but it’s early days
From this coming week we will be introducing a new 3 coloured flag system. We will still be using the ABC system as per the scorecard map but this new system will also be used in parallel. Thank you for the kind generous donation from the Gentleman of the 9 Hole Golf Society. Enjoy the video explanation below
I know, I need to get out more !
This week we will be starting our last Spring Renovation work. This involves using this Big Bad boy bit of kit.
We use it to scarify all the fairways and some other areas with. It does a fantastic job. It scarifies and sucks up most of the debris and then we follow behind with a Tractor mounted Blower and a fairway cut. After this in the coming weeks we overseed areas where needed. Click on the video below to see it at work
CATCH ME IF YOU CAN
I am sure you will have noticed a low black perimeter fence has been erected around parts of the 1st, 2nd ,3rd and 4th holes ? This is to trap and catch our little dear friends the Great Crested Newts and any other little critters in the area!
We have to trap, record and monitor the area for up to 60 days so we can then start on digging the Irrigation lake.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT ENTER THIS FENCED AREA TO RETRIEVE YOUR GOLF BALL IF YOU HIT IT INTO THE AREA .PLEASE TREAT IT AS A TEMPORARY GUR AREA. DO NOT GO INTO THE AREA TO GET YOUR BALL PLEASE.
If you keep hitting balls into the area may I suggest you do one of three things?
1: Move your stance to change direction? 2. Get a lesson off Jason, Jack, Reece or Bobby ! 3. Take up another sport !!
That’s all from me for now .
Enjoy your Course Enjoy your club…..It’s your’s remember !

Its 5.50am and its presently -1 degrees and we have a sharp frost. It should clear early enough to not cause us any problems with the course but I will update the pro shop if this changes. Buggy’s are on but please stick to the paths on the front 9 holes and the roughs on the back 9 holes. Trolley’s are on
Its forecast to be a pleasant weekend so dust the clubs off and enjoy the fresh air. Buggy’s are on but must stick to the paths on the front 9 holes and the rough on the back 9 holes please. Trolley’s are on. While we continue to work on the 4th green it will remain on a temporary. Please do your best to keep off the new turf at thew 13th Green
Buggy’s will today be allowed on all 18 holes, HOWEVER! They must still stay on the paths on the front 9 holes and in the roughs on the back 9 holes. Please abide by this otherwise we will have to look at the buggy situation again. Trolley’s are on. 4th green is on a temporary.
Great golf course, in my opinion the best in the area.
I play a lot of golf courses throughout Essex & Hertfordshire with my golf society and hand on heart Abridge is one of my favourite courses, we come back every year.
Highly recommend a visit!
Super golf course. Immaculate with perfect greens. The course is tough but fair. Gives you a chance to score well and never fails to impress.The people at the club are very friendly and the clubhouse dish of the day is always first rate.
