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.

Tough course but great in good weather

I love this course - it is difficult but the greens are true and reasonably fast. It is long and the rough can be awful, if you are very off the mark. Rained hard today that made it even harder.

One of the best courses I’ve played. Lots of difficult challenges and the 600+ yard one is a really long hole!

Challenging course with difficult greens. Very technical course with a lot of thought put into getting you to think differently about your shot and club selection.

Played 27 holes on Monday and course was in fantastic condition, absolute bargain compared to how much courses are charging to play at the moment. Well worth a visit.

Uncut fairways!

Fairways were not cut so from a decent drive on the fairway the ball was buried!

poor for the cost paid

Not in great condition, fairways poor, 75% were uncut.
Greens were only reasonable which when you consider this round of golf cost £50.00 was not good.
local pay and play courses have better greens with only half the costs

Hacker

Always loved the layout of this course with 10 thru 12 (Amen corner) up there with the best. Great halfway house and clubhouse setting. Friendly staff. Played last week. Greens good, bunkers and tees good. However the grass needs cutting. Maybe they are protecting the clay base from the rain or footfall but it is simply too long and adversely affected the experience.

Not the best

Hever has one of the best layouts in the area, but are obviously not investing in the golf COURSE. Even in May the tee boxes are looking worn and the green surrounds are very patchy. If they want this course to live up its hype work needs to be done.

Excellent course to play

An absolutely lovely course to play and highly recommend playing it, only down side is the price. All courses are dry at the moment and Hever was just as dry as any other, so I think the ?50 fee to play should be less as the ground conditions are not great.

Badly burnt

Sadly Hever has suffered this summer and it?s fairways have effectively disappeared. Although the ball runs forever, there?s no grass where it stops so nigh on impossible to get any spin on approach shots. Princes looked in slightly better condition.
