Colchester Golf Club

Welcome to Club Membership

Come and join us - we know you will love it. We are a non-profit making, traditional yet forward-thinking members' club with an active and vibrant membership of more than 750.  We have members of all ages and abilities - including a great bunch of juniors.

We pride ourselves on our established and highly-respected 1907 James Braid-designed picturesque parkland golf course with superb greens.

Our 18-hole course, par 70, offers undulating fast-running fairways lined by firs and oaks. Four par 3s and two par 5s means that scoring below 70 is more difficult than it might seem at first. Possibly the greatest threat comes in the form of tightly-bunkered approaches to the subtly-contoured greens.

We put significant resource into our course annually and for over 25 years we have proudly hosted a prestigious and very popular East Regional PGA Pro-Am.

Our Academy with a 9-hole par 3 course, all-weather driving bays, 300-yard grass-tee driving range and short game area, provides the perfect warm up, practice or beginner golf facility, exclusively for the use of members and their guests.

Waiting List Management

We currently have a Waiting List for applications for membership.  The approach that we use when considering new applicants is as follows:

We consider the following in the first instance:

  1. Returning existing members or members converting back to 7 day membership from a period as another type of CGC member.
  2. Returning existing members who have not maintained continuous membership.
  3. Those with existing close direct line family connections.

Thereafter a balanced view of the candidate based on the following:

  • Golf attainment
  • Membership potential

Applicants will only be considered for membership in conformity with the Club's strategic plans and in line with other policies prevailing at any time.  General principles of fairness and equity will also be followed.

  • We will endeavor to accommodate new Junior members.  New Juniors must be deemed compettent before playing on the course and may not play before midday on Saturdays.

The above criteria will be applied as a whole and not necessarily in sequence.

Applicants on the waiting list will be called for an informal conversatopm when a vacancy is there.
