Conservation and H&S on the course

What does Woodford Golf Club do to conserve Epping Forest and the surrounding areas of the golf course?

Increasingly since cattle have ceased to graze the land in Epping Forest areas have been taken over by brambles, Holly, Ivy and small self seeded trees, these are choking the beautiful established Oak Trees of the forest and scrub is encroaching onto the acid grasslands, ant hills and the fairways of this 129 year old golf course.

Woodford Golf Club work parties and their two resident green keepers (who have looked after this land for over 80 years between them) over the last four years have set to reverse the above and return the areas of the forest towards its original links state.

This work has been carried out under the terms of our licence with agreement of the Corporation of London, Epping Forest for conservation and the safety of the visiting public.
