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.

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.

Very dry....runs for miles and no grass

Greens were well maintained but fairways there was barely a piece of grass. Tee boxes ok. Course in need of rain...especially the fairways.

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.

interesting back nine, fairways very dry and preferred lies needed on a couple of the final holes but understandable given the dry summer we are having.

Played here on a society day. One of our groups were a little slow which caused some contenation amongst the members which was unfortuante but otherwise hospitality on the day was good. Course itself was in reasonable condition though some fairways were pretty dry. I'm assuming their not allowed to water them at the minute. Preferred lies were in operation as a result. Greens were fine and the course is always a good challange. Bacon roll to start was nice but no food after at present.

Brilliant Golf course & venue

Played here in 2015 & have wanted to come back for a long time. Finally played here again yesterday. Such a beautiful golf course. Some tricky holes but generally quite an open course. Few water Hazards though! Loved it & will be back again soon

Only negative we found was the bar staff were a bit rude pre round but post round they were very welcoming.

I'm very fond of this place, I played the Princes and it was a challenge. I wasn't the only person to struggle with the hole 6 water, even Tiger Woods would swerve it.
Lovely place to play golf.

Great course but need to sort out drainage pdq

Considering the cost of the members fees, the drainage must be a priority in the coming year. Very wet underfoot and not very pleasant to play at.

Swamp like conditions

Our society played the Boleyn Course (Princes nine and the front nine holes of the Championship Course) and can only describe the course condition as unplayable, nearly every fairway shot was completely plugged, the tee boxes were terrible, just a horrible experience. The championship course was much better so not sure they can blame the weather? Would only play this course in the summer months. They should have warned our society about the poor conditions before taking our money or at least give the option of changing courses.

A very attractive golf course

The Ashdown Golf Society played on the main course last week. Considering the amount of rain that had fallen the course played very well. The greens were excellent. Always a pleasure to play at Hever, we will return.
