Set in the most peaceful environment of the Crondon Park Estate, our main course is referred by many as one of the county’s most formidable golf courses. Because of the numerous different tee positions, it is a challenge for all standards of golf.
It measures over 7,000 yards from the tiger tees and has an abundance of water hazards. There are replicas of several famous holes from around the world. We have a 100% water carry par three, and we also boast the longest closing golf hole in the world. It measures 860 yards from the back sticks and considered unofficially a par six. Known as the ‘Crondon Crunch’, it finishes outside the Clubhouse. To make it even more interesting, the approach shot is over a lake to a green located next to water, don’t forget to bring plenty of spare golf balls, you may need them.
21,000 trees were planted over twenty years ago, you cannot see any other fairway from the hole you are playing. It gives Crondon the feel of a real tree lined parkland.
The greens are USGA sand constructed, so they are very receptive to the ball. There are very few flat areas, mostly undulating and the surfaces improve year on year. For a course only open for twenty one years, our greens have great maturity and challenge.
