What the club says: At Chestfield you are afforded an excellent round of golf, matched only by the clubhouse hospitality. The course suits golfers of all abilities but with it being a hilly course, will challenge even the most seasoned of golfers. The course is easily walkable but for those wanting to reserve energy, buggies are available for hire. The most attractive part of the course is undoubtedly the area comprising the first and eighteenth holes, set in the centre of the village near the Oast House. The most testing part of the course lies on Shrub Hill overlooking the sea, where golfers will find much to interest and challenge them, not least the new 553 yard second hole. Other less demanding holes are more subtle in character and offer substantial rewards to the more cautious golfer.

Great Golf Club

First off this is hilly!! Some of the fairways are strangely bumpy especially the 1st and 18th. But the course is lovely and amazing views out to sea. A must if you are in East Kent.

good course

played a few times and this course is near the coast and when it has been dry for a while it is hard as concrete but strangely a little rain does make a huge difference in how to approach the greens. lots of uneven lies

Deceptive course - shame about greens

At just under 5.9K yards should play easy but after the 1st the course gets a little hilly and tougher, definitely on the greens which were indifferent speed wise and very bobbly. Rough was fairly penal but had been cut recently. Would have been really tricky if played here a couple of weeks back! Society highest was 37pts from a 28 h'cap. So it can be done!!

Greens had recently been treated and were in need of a good cut and is the only reason that I have not given an excellent rating. Saying that, they were still really quick and impossible to hold when chipping from certain directions.

I was a member here as a junior and returned after 12 years for a round with 2 friends. Course is generally good value for money (£15 in Winter past 12pm) and very dry despite recent heavy rain. Greens very variable in pace. Most par 3's off temporary mats. As was the case when I was a junior member, the clubhouse is very stuffy and unwelcoming. My friend was rudely told by a member that he couldn't drink his drink out of the bottle which made us chuckle. It's no surprise that golf clubs are struggling when visitors aren't greeted with open arms. My suggestion would be to avoid the clubhouse and go to Chestfield Barn next door instead for a much better atmosphere. Good course though...
