Nice course in picturesque surroundings. Course was in good condition. Friendly staff. The only downside is the limited practice facilities.

Easy parkland course with wide fairways and light rough. A few bunkers no water hazards. Layout allows speedy pace of play

Tighned already.

The greens have already been tighned and watered but not cut so very slow and obviously bumpy. Ret of course in good nick except bunkers may need a bit more sand. On the hole an under used golf course espeially after 15:00 in the summer at w/e.

disappointing golf course

on my recommendation took two colleagues to the course ,one of which has his own motability buggy.after paying the green fees of ?25 each we were about to go to the 1st Te,.we were then advised by the starter that THE OWNER does not allow individual buggies but will let you purchase a club buggy ,no reason given for not accommodating injured players!..We were not advised that the green staff were Hole Tining the greens and there was no reduction in the green fee .The course was in good condition however NO SECOND CUT FROM THE FAIRWAYS and the long grass would mean lost balls and time consumption looking for them. The green staff also left longer grass growing in the middle of some of the fairways,this meant good shots would be punished and stopped from running as far as they would from the Tee. In summation a very disappointing day out. Speaking to one of the members on the course, his opinion was that the owner is more interested in catering for Wedding receptions than the running and condition of the course!.

Turned up after booking through the pro at the club. We were a 3 ball and paid £25 each as seniors. No mention from the pro shop that the greens were being HolevTined, No reduction in our green fees and one hole unplayable while greenkeepers were Hole tining the 7th green. Unnecessary rough with no 2nd cut causing delays finding balls 12 yards off of most fairways,causing slow play. Fairways interrupted witlh 30/40 yard rough growing in the middle of the fairways .. WHY?..seems the owner is more interested in welcoming wedding parties than organising a proper maintained Golf Course. The owner also doesn’t allow individual buggies but is happy to charge for course buggies. Over all a disappointing visit to a below average golf course

Small greens

1 time around the Darenth. Some great looking holes, amazing fairways, you cam get away with slightly off line on tee shots, but this course greens are tiny so approach and short game need to be on point to score well. I would agree with some of the comments that the greens and the front aprons need lots time money and hard work for green keepers to bring them in line with the whole course which is it good condition. ????

Pro shop

Really nice course good value for money only disappointing thing is that there is no pro shop so make sure you are well prepared before attending as you will not be able to buy anything including basics like Tees or balls etc

What was one of the best public courses around is quickly becoming one of the worst.
it needs a lot of work doing to bring it up to the standard it once was.
very over priced for what you get
they need to decide if they are a wedding venue with a golf course or a golf course with great opportunity to be a a venue for small weddings

Can be a great course

Needs a lot of work on the Greens until these are back to what I would expect not worth the money and would probably not play again until next year unless the Green Fee dropped by a minimum of 20% Overpriced at the moment, Covid ?
