Essex is a very well-known county within the golfing community as it is one of the UK's most popular holiday destinations. You can tee-off in seaside towns such as Southend and Clacton or in towns more inland like Epping, Chelmsford or Colchester. The county's top 5 golf courses are Thorndon Park's course, Orsett's heathland course, Chelmsford Golf Club's course, Colchester Golf Club's course and Frinton Golf Club's Havers course.
Aside from being an amazing golfing destination, Essex is also well known for the historic town of Colchester which is the countries oldest recorded town to the Magna Carta and to this day, Colchester still has Roman Ruins and a Norman Castle.
Despite not being very far from the country's capital, London, Essex boasts a coastline stretched over 350 miles, fronted by verdant marshlands and evocative creeks. For a nation that loves nothing more than a day beside the seaside, Essexs coast has it all.
The beautiful county of Essex has it all, making it a great place to spend a long golfing weekend or even a week long break.
