Highly Recommended 2018

What the club says: The Arden course is one of the country's most spectacular challenges and host to a succession of international tournaments, including the 1997-1999 One-2-One British Masters, 2000-2002 English Open and the 2003 British Masters. It also has one of the European Tour's most distinct signature holes in its 18th; a Par 3, 202-yard hole overlooking the fishing lakes and resort.

The Aylesford Course; Golfers of all abilities will find the shorter Aylesford course a varied and enjoyable challenge. Kept to the same high standard as its celebrity sister, both courses offer a good chance that the friendly local deer will wander on to the course in this majestic countryside setting.

Beautiful and Challenging

The Arden course is tough. The starter warned us against playing from the whites. Should?ve taken his advice! Greens and green complex areas are very well prepared. Hot tip, bring bug spray as the water features might be beautiful but they come with an unexpected cost ????

Excellent course as always, first time I played here I found it a bit plain but having played it again I realised it was more my golf that was plain the first time and not the course at all. Fairways are firm, the rough is fair and the greens are nice and quick!

One of my Favourite Courses

The Arden course in my eyes is right up there. It really has it all. Great variety of holes. Greens as good as you?ll find. Bunkers probably the best I?ve played out of. Stunning scenery. Really does tick every box for me. From the 8th hole onwards I don?t think you will find a better stretch of holes. The 18th is one of the best finishing hikes you?re likely to play. Five stars from me.

One of the best in the midlands

Great parkland track, with a heathland feel on the back 9. No weak holes, but lots of highlights throughout. Decent practice facilities as well, with access to highly regarded coaches such as alistair Davies and chris ryan.

Nice course, not in pristine condition after lockdown but that was to be expected. Definately overshadowed by the Arden Course which is often fully booked with 4 balls. Nice set up with good practice facilities.

Venue with lots of options

Lucky enough to play both courses a few weeks prior to the European Tour UK Swing event.

The Arden was superb and in great condition and a lovely layout and challenge to play. It is also a typical resort style layout so nice and wide off the tees, plenty of hazards and nice big greens which were in excellent condition. Nice to finish with a par 3 over water as welll.

The Aylesbury is slightly shorter but provided several risk and reward holes and was also in great condition.

I'd highly recommend both courses if you are looking for somewhere to play in the area and you will find that the Arden and Aylesbury are priced accordingly for what they provide. With the hotel the venue provides a great option for a stay and play trip or even society golf outing and although I suspect it is often overlooked by its more famous neighbour make sure you look to play here at some point you won't be disappointed.

Full of bandits

I?ve never known a course like the Aylesford, every member seems to be a bandit going round with 40+ points each week. Very small boring course with forgettable holes and expensive beer. Don?t expect to come off this course with your fiver bet intact if you come across the Aylesford bandits. Avoid.

Fabulous condition

Rather open, bit up down up down but from tee to green the course was in excellent condition. Pretty flat too so good for us lazy people. Paid £20 through the pro shop for the round too which is was well worth the money. Friendly people on and off the course

Great greens

Really enjoyable Monday morning round.
Greens are superb.
The course is in great condition. The rough either side of the fairway is the courses main defence. Quite a few bunkers on the course, not in the best condition at the minute due to having no rakes with covid 19.
Great pace of play for a fourball we was round in 3hr20 mins.

A stunning day of sunshine and blue sky. Very picturesque estate with beautiful wildlife.
The greens were pretty good considering the recent weather.
Many excellent holes with several challenging par 4?s at around 420 yards.
Love this place and recommend to anyone.
Not sure about Value as this was a treat.

Wow, what a pleasure.

Played this for the first time a couple of days ago. All I can say is that I was well impressed. Given the time of year and the weather it was not too wet, obviously in a couple of places still muddy but plenty room to go around the muddy areas. Some great holes and most of the Par 4s are a long smack, Driver then 3 wood for me on quite a few. Overall I would recommend you give this a try and you will not be disappointed.

Well worth a game

Top class championship course. Greens and tees in great condition. Fairways a bit boggy but only to be expected after all the recent rain. Plenty of deer roaming around on the back 9 holes. A good challenge with water coming into play often.
