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.

Outstanding course, great set up, facilities. Ticks all the boxes.
The course was set up to play for winter, yet though i was still a lovely course, will be back to play it summer where i feel it will be harder and look even better.

Beautiful setting and a good test of golf

Played 25th October ; quite good condition although the dry summer meant that there were bare patches on some fairways. The greens were good; fair speed and true. The course was looking great as well.

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.

I had my annual gold day on Friday 6th July, and everyone enjoyed it, and couldn't fault a thing.
I would not hesitate and return in the future.

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.

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.
