What the club says: The first record of Golf being played at Gillingham was in 1905. Formally laid out by James Braid in 1919 and constructed by the army, the course remains a challenge after being updated by Donald Steel in the 1990s with its tree lined fairways and small fast greens. Situated in the Medway Towns within 10 minutes of the M2, Gillingham is ideally situated to welcome visitors from all over the country.

Course ok. Members not so.

Course is fine park land course, tight tree lines fairways. Not long but you have to resist hitting driver unless you are straight. Not always obvious where next tees are as a main road cuts through course and you have to cross it a few times. Atmosphere at club was quite unwelcoming though, got shouted at by a four ball of members as we couldn?t find next tee ???? we also let a members 2 ball through, one of them accidentally played one of our balls and just chucked it back down the fairway without apology ???? as I say, course is fine but members let themselves down.

Covid 19 restrictions. Course condition poor considering no play for 10 weeks. Greens slow and bumpy fairways ok. Tees were very poor. Tricky shortish course. Need to be accurate off tee. Lots par 3s but 3 excellent par 5s

Golf overall was Excellent the Course was in Great Condition, just a pity we were let through on Hole 1 by a 4 ball and thanks to them. This in turn gave us a clear hole up until the 2nd where we caught up on another 2 ball and were actually standing next to them by the 6th Hole but they would not let us play through. Fortunately they only played 11 holes but overall Excellent Course and Conditions and Greens were Excellent like putting on Green Biaze

Great tight course, its not the longest course but you have to be accurate off of the tea otherwise its easy to go into the first/second cut and even the trees. The greens are in good condition and challenging. The only thing I would suggest to the club is ensure the bunkers have sand in them all round the course. some are a bit bare but other than that, great course with some challenging holes.

Short and tight,

Green not as good as last year.
You have to pick a time or you?ll have a very slow round. Later in the day ie: after lunch is my pick.

Reviewed Sep 20 2018 by Nico/Ramsgate - rated 4 out of 5
A thoroughly enjoyable visit to this great shortish course. One of the friendliest courses I've been to in Kent. Expect some very short, drivable par 4's and some very long par 4's that are very challenging. There's some really attractive par 3's especially the 18th overlooked by the lovely modern club house with balcony.
The course was in superb condition with plenty of greenskeepers out in force which is always a positive sign of well looked after cause. Speedy greens and narrow fairways with out of bounds posts separating several fairways and trees everywhere. Pretty views but some heavy traffic noise on some holes was an annoyance.
Bunkers will easily catch you out and they're not pleasant to play out of because due to a lack of sand.The other downside is having to cross a busy road two or three times between holes
Very challenging in windy conditions. Not particularly hilly so suitable for seniors as well as younger players.
Highly recommended. Will play here again for sure!.

BE STRAIGHT or you score Eight

really tight the longer you hit the straighter you need to be or look out.
Green fast fairways a joy but they are narrow. ONLY one real moan Beware of the bunkers hardly any sand and full of stones if they don't ruin your card they ruin your wedge.

In great condition

Everything was in great nick, fairways were tidy, lush green and tightly cut. Greens were true not too quick but still a test (a few pitchmarks but then that's down to lazy members mainly at most clubs.....if every member repaired just 2 on each green it wouldn't be a problem).
Clubhouse staff and Pro were welcoming and the food was excellent. Great value for money at ?25 for the round on a Bank Holiday. Pro regripped a club for my whilst we were out playing, good service.
