2 Quality golf courses

The Crowne Plaza Resort Colchester – Five Lakes is home to two well maintained 18-holes golf courses that have been built in accordance with USGA specifications. The Lakes course is a par 72 course (6,313-yard) set up in stunning surroundings and provides quite a few challenges for even the most experienced golfers. On the other hand, the Links is a par 71 course (5,981 yard) and while it is more suitable for golf novices, it still brings welcome difficulties for more skilled golfers.

We are lucky here at Five Lakes to have a golf professional to share and promote his in-depth knowledge. Accomplished player Gary Carter has been a pro at the hotel for over 20 years and won the Essex PGA Championship in 1999. Whether you are a first-timer or an experienced golfer, Gary offers quality coaching and can help you work towards the perfect swing.

In addition to the two golf courses, we also have three practice putting greens and an 8 bay driving range. These facilities allow you to practice well before you move on to the next step. Discover our golf shop and let yourself be tempted by one of the latest clothing or accessories we have on display. Feeling a bit peckish or thirsty after your round of golf?
