What the club says: You will certainly need as much peace and quiet as possible to concentrate on the challenge offered by a par 73 layout which measures a hefty 7,200 yards from the championship tees. The fairways are generously wide, but the undulating nature of the valley terrain means that you will need stamina, good course management and an imaginative touch around the greens to truly prosper on this excellent golfing test.

The course is a very challenging but very beautiful to play on the views are excellent, the greens are superb all year round, the course is very long but has some very beautiful holes. I play here every Wednesday and Saturday. I am extremely sad that his course has now closed. Kent has lost one the best courses in its county.

Shocked to hear that it is closing down shortly and being returned to farm land. Played it on Oct 30th with teaching colleagues - very 'claggy' and felt like I had moon boots on at times but we all enjoyed the challenge of the course. Great thing about this course is that you truly feel you've played a full round with all the ups and downs. This may also be its downfall as it is demanding (don't suggest a buggy please) and in competition with a good few courses within 15 miles. I will miss playing here if it does cease to exist
RIP Austin Lodge

Played 24th October 2014, shot 86, handicap 14. I have an immense fondness for this venue for a variety of reasons. \1/ Staff, 2/ Staff, 3/ Staff. they are a lovely bunch of people. I Play here a fair bit as a pay and play and always am treated as though I'm a member (I'm not). I take my 8 year old son to play a few and putt a few and always have kind words of encouragement from staff and members alike. Cant do anything about the badgers unless you want the tree huggers down on you. With the place up for sale since 2011, and due to close shortly by all accounts, excessive spending on eradicating the the grubs that the badgers feed on is unlikely to happen. Greens are always great to Putt on and a good test of your range and borrow reading.

The most amazing views, course lovely throughout (badger damage aside). Massive physical challenge walking the hills, buggy required for less able walkers.

A literally hidden gem of a course, challenging played across two valleys. Have to use buggy if playing more than 18 holes. When windy, as it often is, it is particularly tricky.

Played here for the first time today and had a great time, the condition of the course was fantastic and the views are spectacular on some holes. There are a couple of signature holes here, making this a hidden gem.
