First time round here. Worth playing at curently reduced green fee of £30. Many bunkers on the course, some of which are blind from the tee, and several round a lot of the greens. Course was in very good condition and enjoyed going round. (Round played: Sep 2014 - Score: 102 Handicap: 18.8)

Excellent course despite recent poor weather. There on a society event so excellent value too. Quite tight but not over long. More than enough holes where the driver can stay in the bag.

The club is in relatively good condition, however as stated below the course is outrageously expensive. I certainly will not be returning,

Not a bad local course, I was signed in by a member as I am looking to change clubs. Overall course was okay and quite challenging in places for a 15 handicapper, however, greens were not to my liking but that seems to be a common problem. I will play again in a few weeks to see if they improve before I make my mind up. Unfortunately they do have a reputation in the area for bad greens.

Played Ladies Invitation day, The Course and the food was great, the best course that I have played for ages love the new paths. The Club is going from strength to strength with investment year on year . I would love to join but live just a little to far away. Well done West Kent Golf Club.

Having read the most recent reviews, I am not sure if the visitors are blinkered or did not play very well on the day of the visit. I recently played the Club with the Kent Captains the Course and the Club House are first class. Staff very welcoming why not visit and see for yourself don't listen to the bad comments all fabricated rubbish. Visit the Club who will prove them all wrong.

My home course, perhaps I should not have signed up for another year as the membership charges are a rip off especially when half the year you cannot play the course because either waterlogged or its on temps or the greens are really unplayable. Will be rethinking next year as other courses don't have their greens on temps as much.

Reasonably enjoyable day, greens were a bit shoddy. Tight holes and quite hilly so can be tough on your legs if you are getting on a bit like me! Perhaps I was expecting too much of West Kent, not as good as I thought it would be.

This was my home course but not any more and in my honest opinion I don't like the way it was being run. I was a member for many years and very disappointed with certain members of staff thinking they were indispensable and getting away with far too much. Lots of unrest amongst the members because of this. On the upside the course improved over the years I was there.

Every time we come it is on temps and I'm sure it could be a good course but for this. Members can be aloof and club not as welcoming as they make out.

Peter rated 4 out of 5 - Nov 7 2012
Since last playing course has improved somewhat although the day I played it was on temps!! It was a cold and frosty day but as we worked our way around the course the green keeper took it off temps. Disappointed with the service we got from a rather abrupt Bar Steward who clearly irritated by being interrupted texting on his mobile phone. Due to his size I felt intimidated and this would put me off coming again. The kitchen staff were very pleasant and had excellent food and service.
