Packed with countryside charm and character, Five Lakes is a fun resort located close to Colchester, Essex. Set in 320 acres of beautiful parkland, the hotel prides itself on friendly service.
At the forefront of the resort’s leisure offering are two 18-hole golf courses: The Lakes and The Links. The Lakes Course is kept in superb condition all year round and offers a variety of golﬁ ng challenges. The gentle undulation of the course makes walking easy and the architecture combines lakes, well placed bunkers, mature and new trees with hedgerows.
To score well here, you need long drives and accurate approaches. As the name suggests, water does feature across this challenging par-72 course. The Links course is famous for its slick greens and deceptive nature; easier than The Lakes, those playing on this course should still avoid underestimating the water hazards and penal sand traps.
With excellent short game practice facilities and an onsite driving range. As well as the courses, Five Lakes also boasts 194 bedrooms, an onsite spa, gym, bars and dining options.
