Reviewed Oct 16 2017 by Graham 14 handicap - rated 3 out of 5

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

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

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

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.

Best course I've played

Played here on a society day which included lunch. Food, service and clubhouse all excellent. Great practise putting green, chipping area, and range.
Course itself was in superb condition. There are some challenging holes but the whole course is stunning. Loved it here.

Lovely course, well worth playing. Water comes into play on several holes and it's an interesting test. Bit muddy in places at the current time due to recent rain and the fact it's based on clay. Greens had been sanded so were a bit slower than expected but rolled well. Nice bacon roll prior to the round and decent burger and chips once done. Also has a well stocked pro shop.

Super venue, super course

Great course in great condition - holes 11-13 of the Championship course are spectacular and I\'d happily play them on repeat!!! The Princes is well worth playing too - some lovely holes. Great venue for a society.

Tough worth every penny

Great course, condition on the day, mostly good - had hollow tined the greens making putting more difficult. 'Amen Corner' lived up to its reputation! Some spectacular holes. Tests every facet of your game, and very enjoyable. (Sadly, lost my 58 degree wedge, which no-one has since handed in.)

Very nice course

A very nice course, Shame it was chucking it down with rain. Defiantly going back to play when its dry, Some real good par 4's. Nice par 3's over water and some long par 5's. 12th is almost like the the 12th at augusta. Greens were great in the rain.

Claire and her team at Hever Castle Golf course looked after our every need. The course was excellent, especially considering the amount of consistent rain over the past few months, and the facilities and food were very good. I recommend the full English! I would not hesitate to recommend Hever Castle Golf Course to both friends and business colleagues alike. We will be booking another event at the course in the near future!
