Much improved

We last played here in late 2019. The course and clubhouse have changed - all for the better. Won?t be as long before we play here again.

Best in the area

A great golf course with challenging holes for all levels. The grounds have always been kept in impeccable condition no matter the season and a lovely clubhouse with a good menu and clean facilities to match.

Fantastic course and brillaint value for money

Course is in excellent condition and has most certainly been loved and improved over lockdown, very impressed. So much so, I've played 4 rounds in the space of 14 days! Bunkers are also in great condition (not that I hit any in there). The best course and also value for money in the entire area and county.

Nice course in the kent countryside and it looks like they have pent a lot of money refurbishing the clubhouse and the car park has been made bigger. The one big criticism is the lack of work on the course and its one of the most expensive (in its class) in the area. I've been a regular visitor with my group of up to 11 friends and they all said the same. During lockdown a lot of work could have been carried out, without interrupting play and it looks like very little was done.

Well overpriced

For ?39 I expected a lot more of this course. We used to play it regularly but not been there for a couple of years at least. Won?t bother going back. There are much better courses around cheaper than this one

Good course conditions but some greens very spongy

Was a dull day with about 1hrs drizzle/mist. However course in good nick with some grees close to being waterlogged but all very playable. Good pase of play for a 4-ball, under 4hrs and not too muddy.

Bargin twilight round and great condition

A steal for a late afternoon round. A nice layout which suits people who draw the ball (slicers beware). All tees and fairways were in great condition, the rough was very penal but then again really should be staying out of that stuff.

A couple of greens had just been aerated so were a bit bobbly but otherwise they were in good condition and rolled well.

The greens were excellent but the fairways were very dry and keeping the ball on them was difficult but it was the same for everyone my only other criticism was that you can?t take a buggy after 2 pm
