Royal Epping Forest Golf Club is full of history.
The ground dates back to the time of Henry VIII, when archers would go out hunting for eagles. Nothing much has changed except that now it is golfers who come home telling of their quest for that rare eagle, and occasional birdie.
The course remains a challenging 6,000 plus yards, with natural vegetation lining the fairways and closely cropped greens that will speed your ball, despite the lightest tap of the putter, on its way.
Here you are just 11 miles from the City, easily accessible via the M11 or North Circular, with car parking near enough to the Clubhouse, but far enough away from any wayward shot to the 18th green.
For those who prefer to take the train, Chingford Station is a mere fairway wood away, linking up with the entire London Underground network.
When you arrive, either at the beginning of a game or at the end, you’ll find the Clubhouse overlooking the finishing hole will give you a warm welcome.
There, as another King Henry said, you shall tell "of deeds you did that day”.
