Golf has been played over the course since the club was founded in 1888.  The course may appear innocuous from the clubhouse, but don't be fooled. Rising up and down three times from Chingford Plains into and out of Epping Forest, the course will provide a varied and interesting challenge of your skills. To preserve the natural appearance of the landscape, bunkers are only to be found away from the passing public gaze, on the upper holes in the forest.


One of the main reasons golfers join a club is to obtain a recognised handicap and play in competitions against fellow golfers. At REFGC we do not disappoint and actively encourage participation by players of all handicaps.


A Mens competition is arranged for most weekends over the year, extending over Saturday and Sunday, and the Seniors Section on a Wednesday. In the summer months there are the singles, foursomes and mixed foursomes knockout competitions as well as mixed events sponsored by both the Mens and Ladies sections.


The club also organises 'away days' in the Summer normally within a 100 mile radius of Chingford together with friendly matches against local clubs.


The Ladies Section is quite small in numbers, but is an extremely active section.  The section holds its competition on Saturdays and Thursdays throughout the year and participates in NAPGC and Essex Ladies inter club competitions.  We have several  special golf days during the season and participate in competitions and fun events with other sections of the club.


The course rewards accuracy and good course management and suits ladies of all abilities.  The Ladies Section welcomes new members whether experienced or beginner. For more information on the Ladies Section, go to the ‘Ladies’ tab.
