The Darenth is a fairly long course, with a good mix of holes, not too hilly. Many of the greens are quite small. General condition of course is good and has great views but the greens are average, maybe as a result of the dry summer.

Holding up well in the dry

As with most places now, fairways are dead but greens a re relatively slow due to watering. Golfers need to be mindful of reapiring pitch marks. Some bunkers, far too mauch sand whilst other bare, almsot to the "rocks" - 14th especially

Very quiet due to the heat and the Open championship, pretty much had the course to ourselves so no pressure on pace of play. Fairways rock hard and baked, but greens in very good nick and ran true considering. Bunkers inconsistent, some rock hard with little sand in, others more approaching a standard you'd expect

Twilight

Afternoon round with friends. Was informed we had to have my buggy back by 18.00 or I would not be able to retrieve my car keys, only to realise that the buggy only had 1 speed, and I've seen quicker snails. Course is interesting, but penal for anything off line. Reload,, not even worth looking ! Some good par ?s and par 4?s and overall a course worth the effort. Would recommend.

Bit surprised at some of the negative reviews below. Played here on twilight rate of £23 teeing off around 5pm in a 2 ball. 3 lads in front let us through on the 2nd, then had a clear run for rest of the round. In terms of the course, there was the odd bit of damage to a couple of fairways (badgers?) and a couple of the bunkers could have had a little more, or better sand in, but otherwise course was in excellent nick. Greens were a little furry and slow but true enough if you gave the ball a hit. They were also comparatively small which really tested your approach play. Course itself is a little up and down to start with but gets more interesting the further round you get. Having now seen it, I'd like to play it again, and at the rate paid above, it's a bit of a steal.
