Where2Golf says: 

Thorndon Park Golf Club is laid out in 240-acres of Elizabethan deer park, formerly the ancient hunting grounds attached to impressive Thorndon Hall. Here you'll find one of London's golfing gems, and one of the few top-rated courses found on the east side of the capital.

Occupying a wonderfully natural setting with small lakes, menacing water ditches and plenty of gnarled old oak trees, this wonderfully undulating (but never hilly) course is a quintessential English delight. The bunkering is superb, the greens fast and true, and every hole exudes Harry Colt's mastery of golf course design. The fairways are spacious enough for long-hitters not to feel too constrained from the tee. The par-4 3rd serves up one of the more testing drives, with plenty of water to cross before the safety of the fairway is reached.

The second of the two nine-hole loops comes to a fitting climax in front of the Palladian mansion of Thorndon Hall, a magnificent backdrop to the final hole. Thorndon Park is not just the best golf course in the County of Essex, but undeniably one of the top rated parkland layouts around London. To tour the Thorndon Park course click on the video below.
