Hartswood golf course

Hartswood golf course

Hartswood Golf Course has launched a new online booking system for the first time, for members and visitors. The system allows golfers to book tee times in advance on the Intelligent Golf website or through the app, available for iPhone and Android. Golfers with annual season tickets will get a login via email with details on how to access the new booking system.

Hartswood Golf Club members and Annual season ticket holders can book 14 days in advance. 

Visitors can access the online booking system and book seven days in advance.

If you're a regular golfer and would like to play unlimited golf, a seven-day ticket allows you to play Monday to Sunday and a five-day ticket allows play Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays), subject to course closures. Find out how to apply for a season ticket.

You can also book tee times in advance by calling 01277 214830 or visiting the Golf Shop. Only card or contactless payments will be accepted in the Golf Shop. 

You shouldn't lift or touch any of the flags on the course. Ball washers and bunker rates are not available.

Set in a beautiful parkland in King George’s Playing Fields in the heart of Brentwood, the par 70 municipal golf course, is one of the finest in the south east of England.

With onsite parking off the Ingrave Road entrance to the park, there are toilets on site and a cafe offering hot and cold food and drinks. If you're playing a full round of 18 holes of golf at full price and paying for parking, you can show your parking ticket to the Golf shop before the round to get a discount of £4.

All age groups are encouraged to play at Hartswood but for safety reasons, players under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a paying adult when crossing The Avenue to play holes 3 to 11. 

For golfers interested in joining the resident Hartswood Golf Club, members will receive an additional 10% off annual season tickets. For more information, call the Club Secretary on 01277 218850.

Golf buggies

Golf buggy use to play the full 18 holes at Hartswood is currently suspended pending a safety review. However, to ensure that anyone with limited physical ability can continue to safely play a round of golf using a golf buggy, there is now the option to play 9 holes twice - holes 1 and 2 then 12 to 18 which are on the park side of The Avenue. This will be subject to teeing off availability and with prior agreement with the golf shop.

A review of terms and conditions for play at Hartswood is underway. For more information, contact us.

The golf shop & tee time bookings

Centre Golf, located on site, offers a range of clothing and equipment, as well as private lessons and advice. 

The shop is open from 7:30am to 6:30pm during the summer, to take tee time bookings and register players. Starters are on site at the first tee until 6pm for twilight players (earlier in winter).

You can book a tee time by visiting or calling the golf shop on 01277 214830. Tee off times are in 7 minute intervals and run from 07:59am to 6pm in the summer months.

Annual season tickets

For regular players, the annual season ticket offers unlimited golf. Seven day tickets allow play Monday to Sunday, subject to course closures, and the five day ticket allows play Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).

Paper application forms can be picked up from the starters hut adjacent to the golf shop.  To make payment, call the Contact Centre on 01277 312500 (select option 2) or send a cheque made payable to ‘Brentwood Borough Council’ with your completed application form. 

You should allow up to seven working days for applications to be processed. You will receive an email or letter confirmation of a renewal. For new applications, you will receive a key fob in the post with a barcode on the back which is scanned at the golf shop to register the player and allow bookings. The fob is matched to a photo of the season ticket holder, taken in the shop on first use, and stored on the golf booking system to confirm future golf bookings.
