Course was in excellent condition,greens ran very true but the state of the bunkers diminishes the enjoyment of the course ,most bunkers have GUR signs which was virtually every hole which is unacceptable when paying £35!

Played the Darenth 7th Feb 24. After recent poor weather the course played better than expected, worth a visit for winter golf. Greens were wet but ran fairly true, it was a shame people didn't repair their pitch marks. Very muddy between holes.

All the greens were well drained and reasonably well maintained but it would help if everyone used a pitch repairier. As usual there bunkers there are poor with little or no sand.

Winter golf

We played the Darenth on the 29th November. In the few days prior we had some very heavy downpours. I have to say that the drainage was excellent. There was no water on the fairways and the greens were in excellent condition. Definitely a course for the winter conditions.

Muddy around the tees and Grees but playable

As with past years, Darenth have made every effort to keep the course playable but that means a few extra yards in walking from before the green to next tee. It does mean that around the green you still have payable lies and greens are good. Tees ok but some are showing wear'n'tear. Towards the end of the round the fairways are getting worse and plenty of worm casts and muddy patches where trolleys have been. Overall still "enjoyable" to play. I would klike someone to review the course Index though. This is not a below average course in terms of scoring!

Very friendly club

They continue to make improvements both on and off the course at this club. Work was going on around the green improving the bunkers - this is the only complaint - too many of the bunkers consist of compacted dirt or a mix of sand and stones. Need to keep up with this work to have a course to be proud of.

Nice course in great condition

Lovely course, not too long and all in a great condition. Fair price and nice facilities, my only issue was the lack of signage on the course, luckily my partner had played their before.

Good Condition

Witha bit of rain the ground softens up but a few times on this course the ball runs more than expected and other times stops dead. That applies to Fairways and greens. Not consistent enough to allow for great scoring. Greens need a bit more TLC but that should be helped by the golfers that are not repairing their pitchmarks. Rough wasn't penal like it can be but fair.

Well worth a visit

Played here on the 14th July 23 and was really impressed.Course was in great shape and they have obviously been working hard to get it playing this well.Course is great layout with some long par 4's and some getable par 5's.The short holes are all tricky thanks to some evil pin placement.
Food was fantastic after as we had booked with a society.We were made to feel really welcome and indeed the owner took the time to come over and say hi.
I will definitely be bringing back other guests to play this stunning little course.
Well done The Darenth ????
