The ESTEC Golf Course is a 9-hole course with a length (over 18 holes) of 3230 metres (Yellow tees) and 2916 metres (Red tees). It has two par 4 holes, the other seven being par 3. There is quite a lot of water and raised “dune” areas which form significant obstacles.
Although quite short, the course is sufficiently long to count as a “qualifying” course for the purpose of the EGA Handicap System. Handicaps and scorecards from the ESTEC course are therefore fully transferable to and from other courses
The course is maintained to a high standard, according to an ecological plan, by an outside contractor, under the supervision of the Club’s Course Managers.
Although there can be drainage problems in wet weather, the course is in principle open for the whole year. Changes to the course status (open/closed) are announced by email and shown on the website.
The ESTEC golf course may only be used by “playing members” of the Club, their guests, official guests of the Club and other persons specifically authorised by the Committee.
The Course Record is held by Nick McCrow. On Sunday 1 August 2004, during the Monthly Competition, he improved his previous course record (which had stood for five years) from 59 strokes to 58 strokes (level par).
