What the club says: Formerly known as Ruxley Park, all of the courses wind their way through the scenic Kent countryside and incorporate many a hazard along the way to provide a series of distinctly different golfing experiences. The centre encompasses two courses - Ruxley Park, and a short par 3 circuit alongside Cray Valley, also complimented by a par 32, 9-hole challenge. With 54 holes, two golf shops, a fleet of buggies, a 28-bay floodlit driving range and expert tuition from our PGA professional Orpington Golf Centre has everything you need for your golf game.

Good luck not getting robbed on this course

They appear to have an issue of gangs of 'Travellers' roaming the golf courses, harassing the players. This can be as little as intimidation of the players whilst they are playing, to stealing golf clubs/equipment and hijacking golf carts with everything on it.

This is a good public course, there was a couple of temp greens due to undesirables ruining a couple of greens with motor bikes, but play in the afternoon and its cheap enough to be well worth it

not much to talk about

Cray Valley has very generous fairways, but the cross ditches hinder being able to hit onto some greens in regulation.

Avoid if you can

This course used to be okay but is in a terrible state or repair. As others have noted, temp greens in place in spring because two greens are unplayable (no grass on them and doesn't look like much work done to rectify it), those greens in operation are v poor too, there's three types of grass on them! Never seen that before, your ball can actually have 3 different speeds on a single putt. The tee boxes are full of holes, not flat and in some places lacking grass too. Where they've moved the tees to tiny patches where they may be some grass and a stance where your foot isn't in a crater it leaves some strange tee shots, pointing at trees or away from the hole. It's really not worth playing here at the moment. Shame, used to be good place to practice for the money but it's now so shoddy I'll go somewhere else.

This course looks as if it has been vandalised with 2 greens unplayable (temporaries in place), other than that the rest of the course is fine. The fee is considerable cheaper than elsewhere.

Ok at £18 but not worth price increase

An ok course. We paid £18 but prices are going up which I don't think is worth it.
