What the club says: The setting alone is inspiration enough at Hever Castle’s 250 acre 27 hole course. Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, dates back to 1270. In 1903 William Waldorf Astor acquired the Castle and gradually added to the estate. In the 1920s the Astors created a nine hole golf course for their personal enjoyment, set around the Hever Castle lake and land to the north of Hever Castle, which survived until the Second World War when it was sadly abandoned.

What Golfshake says:



Most Helpful Review

Great surroundings, terrible tees

Greens running true and quick. General course condition for this time of year is very good.
Bunkers are deep and play well. This is however where the good stuff stops. The tees on 90% of the holes are diabolical. Teeing off on a banana shaped surface is not what one would expect from a golf course charging £40.00 a round. Very slow play , Hever seems to have a large amount of pensioners tearing up the course slower than a turtle.
Club house is good and menu has enough to keep you busy, pro shop is small but adequate - Oct 16 2017

Great Course
Very nice course - sp0me tricky holes. Dry weather made conditions difficult - look forward to playing again with softer ground and some grass!

Hever Castle Golf course 18/7/18
Our society has played this course many times & we always enjoy going back. Course was bone dry & fairways / most of the tees parched & brown. Greens in good condition. All the staff were very attentive & friendly. Only downside was there were no clean towels, which was ironic as there was a basket for dirty towels!

What a lovely golf course at Hever Castle. The fairways are obviously brown and dry, but what course isn't these days with the hot weather, but the layout and condition of the greens were first class. A good test of golf, with the yellow tees playing in excess of 6,400 yards.
A lovely clubhouse and friendly staff. Really look forward to playing there when the rain returns but, should anybody think of playing a round there, I'd have no hesitation in recommending it.

Challenging Course
Hever is set in the rolling Kent countryside in the backdrop of Hever Castle. It is challenging but set in beautiful surrounds with water to contend with on several holes and one of the longest par 5s you will ever play.

Course in fantastic condition, very quiet. Greens playing fast and lots of roll out on fairways. Some challenging short-ish rough to catch any sliced drives. Twilight green fees fantastic value.

Played on a horrible day weather wise. Course played well however and was in good condition as it always is. Greens were true and ran well. Always a good test and proved the same today. Well worth playing and will most likely return later in the summer hopefully in better weather.

Fabulous golf course
Our Society visited Hever Golf Course at the end of March. Although the weather had been wet the course was in superb condition. The greens were very good and reasonably fast. Hever is quite diverse which makes it a very interesting course to plot your way round.
Booking was was made easy by the office and the food and catering staff were all superb. The clubhouse is one of the best in the area in my opinion and it’s a pleasure to spend time there. We will certainly be back.
