Crowlands Heath Golf Club is a golf course located in Chadwell Heath in London, United Kingdom.

The course[edit]

Crowlands' golf course is a 9-hole links style course. Because it is not a full 18-hole golf course, players have the option to play a 9-hole round, or play the course twice to complete 18 holes. The course was designed by former Jack Nicklaus designer Mike Pinner, and has been built to Championship USGA Specification. Although the land is of private ownership, members of the public can play on the golf course as if it were public land.

The par of the course is 33 for 9-holes, and therefore 66 for 18-holes.

Driving range[edit]

Crowlands Heath Driving Range has 30 bays, is undercover and floodlit. It is unique in that golfers hit balls into a large lake. To make practising more exciting, golfers at Crowlands Heath Driving Range can either attempt the chance of carrying their shot 175 yards to the grass targets on the opposite side of lake, or try for a hole in one on the floating green, or just practice hitting the yardage-marked floating buoys.

PGA Advanced Professional[edit]

Crowlands Heath is part owned by PGA Advanced Professional Chris Jenkins, who has progressed such talent as Oliver Fisher from amateur to professional on the PGA European Tour.
