I've played here a few times and overall the experience is one I would recommend. The course was in excellent condition, the fairways were great but with many unrepaired divot holes. The greens were running fast and true. This is a fairly long course and you will be hitting medium to long irons into many of the par 4's and par 3's. If you're on a budget though, beware of the extortionate prices in the clubhouse. 2 quid for a small bottle of water is daylight robbery!

What a venue and what a course

Superb hotel. Food excellent, nice rooms good sized pool.
Course is more than a bit special. Even a wind gusting at over 50 MPH couldn't spoil the day.
would love to go back on a still day and prove that it's a playable course for all handicaps.

Disappointing from previous visits

Course condition was terrible. Some tee boxes looked like they hadn?t been moved for months. No divot boxes on them to repair your divots and this meant you couldn't get a stance. Greens were in terrible condition also with what looked like lots of dead patches on them. 16th green had new turf but wasn?t marked off as GUR. Practice ground which also has been quality in the past was not worth going on. Real shame as I used to look forward to playing here but would think twice in the future.
Bar staff after the round where brilliant and the best part of the day.

Captains weekend

Hotel very good food good rooms nice beer a bit on the dear side the course was good well set out the front 9 as a lot water on it the back 9 is a bit tight the greens where very fast but true the pace of play was very SLOW 6 hours to do 18 holes what a joke they should have marshals going round to keep a look out for slow play it really needs looking at

Played the Aylesford course. Short and quite flat but laid out really well and in excellent condition. Greens were lighting quick.

Only a couple Par 5's and Par 3's unspectacular but good variety of Par 4 holes. Okay to bring the Driver out on pretty much most holes.

Staff in pro shop were friendly and starter also. Hut between 10th and 11th hole with vending machines was a life saver.

Would definitely recommend and play again.

Reviewed Oct 1 2012 by Graeme - rated 4 out of 5
The course was in excellent condition. True, slick greens and consistent sanding in the bunkers. The back nine just gets my vote over the front, mainly due to a couple of superb par fives and the over-the-water par 3 finish, and it's simply better looking what with the bracken, mature trees and roaming deer. The only downside was the buggies - they cost an eye-watering £40. Have to disagree with the previous review of the sister course, The Aylesbury. Myself and my playing partners found it flat and featureless, and when the round finished none of use could recall a single memorable hole. Tight fairways and punishing rough, but completely lacking in character.

Aylesford course is not a patch on the Arden. The Arden is a good test, with water playing a part on many holes. Well set up, good facilities, it was worth the money when included as part of a golf break.

Golfshake Team ReviewPlayed here in a society day when we got a very good price, and this made it exceptional value for money. Played the Arden, marginally the better of the two courses. Some excellent holes and some OK but generally a better back 9. All the greens were in superb condition, not particularly fast but very true could pinged from a distance with some grab - considering it was August this was pretty good.
Loved the 8th and 18th par 3's both over water, and would have been a bit more enjoyable if I could have got the driver to work!
Usual eye-watering prices from a Marriot clubhouse. Top tip though, the bacon rolls from the halfway house (just a stones throw from the clubhouse) are half the price!
