Doesn't represent good value for money at all. Far too expensive to play this course. Kept waiting on every tee, took a good 5 hours to get round! Pro shop was overpriced and staff didn't seem interested.

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.

Championship course still needs alot of work

The tees and greens on the championship course are not very good. Found almost none of the mens tees where flat or level, either bowed or slant left or right. Greens bobble all over the place. Difficult to rely on the path when you know at any time the ball will bobble and move of line .
Pace of play is really bad. When are clubs going to learn that 8 minute tee slots are not enough time for a 3 bal or 4 ball. We had to wait at every hole from the 4th. On the 8th there was a 3 ball on green and another 3 ball waiting to tee off. That was a 10 minute wait.
Not ideal and there are much better courses in the vicinity

Main course great challenge, beautiful surroundings. Played on a society day that included playing the Prices course - don't bother, greens were tined and sanded and the nine holes are too short to be anything other than practice. The main course was very, very busy. I understand they need to make money, but there's a balance between long rounds and the club's turnover. We felt squeezed and had to wait on most tees for the players in front. The food was ok - although a burger and chips as dinner was a strange choice - and that's all we got. It cost £68 so I'm in two minds about whether it was good value or not, maybe with the Princes course being in better shape and improved dinner I'd say yes.

Played the Princes course on Sat 15Feb 13. I noticed the previous night whilst checking the website that a trolley ban was in place due to recent heavy rain . In my opinion the course was unplayable. Thick mud and heavy casual water occurred on every hole and any ball not in the middle ofvthevfairway was deeply plugged.
Staff in the pro shop were excellent

Duff tees

Golf is difficult enough, why compound the difficulty by having terrible tee boxes. Surely one of the easier parts of the course to maintain. Yet 90% of the tee boxes are either slanted lett or right and a good many of them are rounded. Fix that and your course will be a 5 star

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
