Good Condition

No flags are available and it makes playing golf very difficult, no idea where the holes is and nothing to target. Other courses have flags with shallow holes to enable players to retrieve the golf ball without issue.

Nice course in Kent Countryside

A nice course in a pretty Kent village. Lot of money has been spent on the facilities. Had course directions on some holes but not others. However the course was very well looked after, good greens and nicely laid out. Would certainly play again.

Improving course

Not sure if this place has new owners, but the name is not the only thing to change here. The course was always a decent challenge, but they have clearly been putting some more effort into maintaining it and I think it's improved it quite a bit. It looks much tidier than it did in the past. Changes have been made to the clubhouse. Hope they find the time / money to refurb the changing rooms too.

Good public course

This course is trying very hard to become a wedding venue, so there is a little bit of conflict with the golfers and the staff trying to keep trolley's and golfers in the right place. No golf shoes in the bar, even soft spikes is another issue for me.

Great Course

Fairways and greens in excellent condition. Stay on the fairways as the first cut is tough to recover from and the rough you have to take wedges to get out. A real test for any golfer
