The first 4 photographs are of Basildon Golf Course in general. The next 2 photographs are of the semi-mature trees to be cut down if the plans go ahead. In total we believe that 167 free-standing trees will be cut down together with lines of small trees which currently form two 'screens'. One oak is proposed to be retained and this would be in the middle of the driving range. Objections about the location of the driving range around the tree and the likely damage that it will suffer have been ignored. Next is a photograph of badgers which come into one of the gardens backing onto the golf course. Finally there are 3 further photographs of developments at Risebridge Golf Course, Romford which has been under the management of Jack Barker Golf for several years. Please note that there are additional photographs from Risebridge elswhere on this website and also in Bill Rippon's contribution 'Improvement?' in the Forum section.

Basildon Golf Course: plans are for the oak tree (left foreground) to remain in the middle of the new driving range in spite of objections from the Council's Senior Arboricultural Officer who wrote 'constant striking of golf balls will probably do the tree long term damage'.
Plans are for all the other trees on the left to be cut down to make way for the driving range.
