Golf Course Says
The links at Castle Point Golf Centre opened in 1988 and has proved very popular in the area. The course is perfectly situated on the banks of Thames Estuary with views of Hadleigh Castle - the vantage point used by Henry VIII as he his ships sailed towards battle. The course is open to the public at all times and has a loyal following amongst players of all abilities. Castle Point Golf Centre can provide equipment hire.

This course has to be one of the most run down and poorly maintained courses in England. As a resident of Canvey Island I've not played on this course for years and decided to give it another go. From the time I was greeted by the moodiest man on reception to the time I finished my round (early!) and left, the whole thing was a disaster. It cost £10 for 9 holes which I think is pretty dear for a public course. Basildon Golf Course costs just £5 for 9 holes and looks and plays miles better. The greens were OK, although a bit sticky in places but if you don't hit it down the centre everytime you've a really good chance of losing a ball. I lost 4 balls in the "light rough" which I've never had before. You may think it's just me having a bad round but I spoke to people going round and even the regulars think it's a dump. They just go as it's local. The toilets smelt like they'd not been cleaned for a month and the beer is expensive so don't even think of hiring the club.I have no idea how they stay open! I will never play this grotty course again and I would advise you not to waste your money. Try Basildon, Langdon Hills (if you know a member), Garrons or Dunton Hills instead.
