The Golf Club is placed on the edge of the beautiful old market town of Saffron Walden and is within easy walking distance of local shops, restaurants and hotels. Saffron Walden itself is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 and has many interesting attractions. The Common houses the largest earthen maze surviving in England with its path winding for approximately one mile through the grass within a 100 ft diameter circle. Oliver Cromwell had his headquarters in the town at the Sun Inn and here you will find beautiful examples of the pargetting which Saffron Walden is famous for.
The course itself is situated in the grounds of Audley End Park which was landscaped from 1763 by Capability Brown. From the course there are stunning views over Audley End House and grounds which are now cared for by English Heritage. On the course you will also find Lady Portsmouth’s column which was designed by Robert Adam and is dedicated to her memory.
Saffron Walden is a challenging course owing to the sudden changes in elevation, undulation and cunningly placed trees. One thing you can be sure of - you will always receive a very warm welcome!
