Hartswood Golf Course - Brentwood
Please note that the golf course is now able to take card payments.
Please be advised that due to constant abuse the Council is no longer offering the 9 holes option for Pay and Play; only 18 holes and twilight. Apologies for anyone wishing to genuinely only play the 9 holes.
Please note that our Terms and Conditions have now been updated and are available to read.
Please be advised that we now have a Golf Buggy Policy in place for anyone using a buggy at Hartswood. The Council is in the process of purchasing a buggy for use on the course by less able users and will be introduced as soon as possible. At this time the policy is only being implemented for those using their own buggy.
This 18 hole, par 70 municipal golf course is one of the finest in the south east of England, set in a beautiful parkland in the heart of Brentwood, Essex. Season tickets and Pay & Play available, as well as concessionary discounts and other special offers.

Based within King Georges Playing Fields in the Heart of Brentwood, there is ample onsite parking off the Ingrave Road. There are toilets on site and a cafe offering hot and cold food and drinks, and ice creams in the summer.

The resident Hartswood Golf Club welcomes new members and upstairs is a members club house with bar, which arranges competitions and societies. Hartswood Golf Club members receive an additional 10% off annual season tickets and 20 round tickets. For more information call the Club Secretary on 01277 218850.
We encourage a range of ages to play at Hartswood, and offer concessionary rates for those over 60 years old and under 18 years, as well as a junior annual membership for £52 - gift vouchers are also available for this membership type.
We advise that players under 16 years of age that are not accompanied by an adult play holes 1 and 2 and then 12 through to 18 (twice for 18 holes) to avoid crossing The Avenue.
The golf shop is open from 7.30am until 5pm (summer) 4.30pm (winter).
Tee off times are in 7 minute intervals and run from 7.30am to 6pm.
Starters are on site at the first tee until 6pm (earlier in winter).
The Council offices are open for telephone enquiries from 8.30am until 5pm (4.30pm on Fridays).
For regular players the annual season ticket offers unlimited golf. 7 day tickets allow playing Monday to Sunday, subject to course closures, and the 5 day ticket allows play Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).
Concessionary tickets are available to players over the age of 60 years - proof of age may be required.
For less frequent play a 20 round ticket offers great value for money, this allows for 20 rounds within a 12 month period, and a 5 day or 7 day ticket is available.
For a new or renewal ticket please apply using our online form. For online applications payment is made online with a debit or credit card. Application forms may still be used which can be picked up from the starters hut. For paper applications payment can be made over the phone with the Contact Centre on 01277 312500 (option 2) or by cheque. Cheques should be made payable to 'Brentwood Borough Council' and submitted along with the application form.
For new applications a picture will be taken in the golf shop and saved on the system to help avoid fraudulent use of cards.
Please allow up to 7 working days for applications to be processed - you will receive an email or letter confirmation of a renewal, and for new applications you will receive a key fob in the post. This has a bar code on the back which is scanned at the golf shop to arrive the player or allow bookings.
