What the club says: Founded in 1914 and with over 800 members, Nevill Golf Club is well placed on the Southern edge of Tunbridge Wells and has a magnificent view south from the verandah of the clubhouse over the well wooded slopes of Bayham and Frant. The course is exceptionally enjoyable and challenging at the same time and, from its tips, can stretch to nearly 6,500-yards.

Hidden gem in Kent

Heard a lot from other keen golfers about this club and I wasn't disappointed when I finally got to play it, everyone talks about the greens but you have to be accurate off the tee and be able to think your way around this old gem.

Undulating parkland course with plenty of challenges. Fairways were mostly in good condition but the greens were unpredictable. Surfaces were fine but not holding very well for pitch shots. Enjoyable round of golf with a good standard club house and helpful staff.

Great course

Slightly surprised we could use trolleys as the course was pretty boggy in places. But the greens were again running true and there are not many courses with prettier views.

Great hidden gem

This is a beautifully presented course with stunning greens. The hospitality from the Pro shop to the bar staff was exemplary - others should learn! The course is set in Kent woodland and, though the fairways are wide, it still takes a good shot to be on the short stuff and not running into trees. You then have to make sure your approach shot has a chance because the greens are slick - be on the wrong side and its a sure 3 putt!

Recently played Nevill with some friends after winning a round there in an auction, cannot speak highly enough of the course, only bettered by the service received in the clubhouse afterwards. The greens were in immaculate condition, and it's a brilliant test of golf, challenging, but fair. The only downside was that the pro shop was very low on stock due to the changing of the pro, so wasn't able to get a souvenir ball marker as I do for all courses that I play, on the up side it gives me an excuse to go down there again when the shop is stocked and play another round.

A fantastic members club, with some of the best greens in the South of England. Course is a Par 70 with narrow, tree-lined fairways and a challenging but beautiful mix of holes. Friendly welcome for all golfers, with good food and nice terrace to have a drink after the round. Halfway house is also excellent.

Very good golf course. Excellent condition. A lot of thinking involved if you're going to shot a good score, not one for blazing the driver from every tee. Most enjoyable afternoon.

I very recently played the nevill on a twightlight deal ,but it still cost £30 and was very disappointed.You could see that the course was a great layout and had some very interesting holes ,but it was like a former great hotel that had fallen in to disrepair ,you could imagine how good it was and you could see the class that used to be there,the greens where very inconsistent some fast some slow some patchy some bobbley and a couple great,the fairways much the same ,some looked like they had not been visited by a divot party in years and looking like an overplayed municipal but then all of a sudden 2 shots later your ball looked like it was on a carpet ,but in general they where too long and patchy.This course has the capability of being great but at the moment it is quite away off that but still charges like it is a class act,it is not and is very over priced

A popular members\\\\\\\' club and county venue, the Nevill\\\\\\\'s parkland layout is tighter around the front 9, and more open around the back, both of which have a good mix of long and short holes. Little has changed over the years, however a recent visit by renowned course architect Donald Steel saw his recommendations lead to the removal and repositioning of certain bunkers to bring them into play for the longer hitters from the tee, lengthening of some holes and a greater awareness in terms of gorse and tree management, which has improved the look of the course.
