The members of Royal Epping Forest Golf Club are delighted to welcome visitors to our web site.   We feel sure you will find the course both interesting and challenging as well as picturesque.


The course, being on forest land, is a public one. It is laid out over the old hunting grounds of King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I; where the infamous highwayman Dick Turpin roamed in the 1730's and where golf was first played in Essex on an officially recognised course in 1888.


We are the oldest golf club in Essex and the only one in Essex with the Royal Title. It is also one of the few Royal clubs that play over a public golf course; a few others include Royal and Ancient at St.Andrews and Royal Montrose.


The club has a close and friendly relationship with the City of London Corporation which administers the course.
