Practice, play, improve!
Chadwell Springs Family Golf Centre is an exciting new golf development incorporating the current craze of footgolf to ever-classic golf ball games. Two PGA Golf Professionals on site and a Pro Golf Shop to cater for all your golfing needs. It’s outdoors fun, fresh air and green spaces across 48 acres of grass landscape every day of the week. We just can’t get enough!
The place to improve the golfer’s swing or simply to hit a bucket of balls and relieve some stress. Chadwell hosts 17 floodlit bays, 2 studio bays for one on one coaching sessions, robot ball collectors and multi distance range targets to aim for.
Pitch & Putt
9 Hole Challenge
What better way to start playing golf than a round at our pitch & putt short course. Featuring holes from 56-94 yards in length, the strategically positioned bunkers will be perfect for even the most advance golfers whilst providing an un intimidating learning ground for newcomers to the sport. Maximum of 4 players. Suitable for both young ones and grown ups. Ready to play Summer 2017.
9 Hole Challenge
Why not play our pitch & putt course with your feet! We’ve carefully installed an extra hole next to the green to fit a size 5 football. The goal is to get a football into the hole in the fewest number of shots possible. A game for up to 5 players. Power & precision are king here to win but if you just want a kick about with friends and family footgolf at Chadwell Springs is perfect for it. The origins of footgolf are uncertain, one thing we do know is that we love it and salute the UK Footgolf Association for making it a thing.
Par 3 Course
Under Construction - Opening 2018
An exciting new addition due in the Summer of 2018! Our 1000+ yards Par 3 course boasts a challenging 9 hole course. The perfect leap from our short course, our Par 3 hosts a more undulating design and some testing bunkers. Maximum of 4 players per group. Whilst playing don’t forget to enjoy the panoramic view of Hertfordshire’s King’s Mead nature reserve. We are not too strict on dress code, all we ask is to show good etiquette and behaviour and be respectful to other players on and around the course. Please wear golf shoes or trainers, bring your own set of clubs each and accompany 12yr old players and younger at all times.
Book a tee time online via FootGolfFinder – online booking coming soon!

Golf lessons are available 7 days a week. Whether it be newcomers, advanced or elite players our Professionals have over 35 years combined experience having coached all age ranges and abilities.

Whilst of course we don’t expect the same dress code and rules awareness as a private members golf club, we want to maintain both a fun and safe environment. Knowledge of basic rules and etiquette at least should be adhered to and up-most respect of fellow golfers should be given at all times. Sensible footwear recommended includes trainers, plimsolls and golf shoes. Golf clubs will be available to hire on pitch and putt should you not have your own and we expect them to be well looked after during the course of your round. Lastly please avoid slow play at all times and if necessary let faster players ‘play through’. Max players par 3/ pitch putt golf x4. Max foot golf players x5.

not an ordinary golf club
Chadwell Springs golf club site formerly known as East Herts Golf Club (1899) sits on what was originally Lime Kilm Farm.
Family brewers McMullen & Sons have operated Chadwell Springs since 1974 with Dave Smith being our resident PGA Golf Professional since 2005.
The land is formed over chalk caves – it is the water in these caves that to this day is used in the brew of McMullen’s local ales.
To create unforgettable experiences at Chadwell Springs, a brand new golf shop and public house have been opened at the newly developed family golf centre.
The redevelopment of Chadwell means golfing facilities improve as well as its landscape, planning habitat creation over 1.2 hectares in size and planting over 2,000 trees.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
