Highly Recommended 2018

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.

Not great

The greens had been hollow tined and smothered in sand the day before. The fairways need a damn good cut.
Otherwise it's a decent layout and the clubhouse is pretty friendly.

Could be great

Played the 9 hole course which is good for a quick round. Nothing too challenging. Played the 18 before and that?s more varied. It?s a good facility but the maintenance and the clubhouse leave a bit to be desired. That said, the area that it?s in lends itself to regular incursions from undesirables after hours.

Could be a nice course if not for the cross ditches!

conditions were good. Some dodgy pin placements. Greens were true and quick.
Too many cross ditches to negotiate from the tees.

Very surprised at the condition of this course, it is fantastic at the moment you can see the ground staff have worked really hard to achieve this well done, just hope that people playing help to keep it this way by replacing divots and repairing pitch marks it?s not hard.

Dry but greens being looked after in the heatwave

Facilities are drastically reduced because of covid19, pro shop screened off, bar closing early and Ruxley is closed and it’s driving range. Amidst a dry heatwave and for £14 it is what I expected. Dry hard fairways and lots of players who don’t repair pitch marks or fairway divots. But the greens are so well watered, their greeness really shone amongst the yellow surroundings and balls were spinning and stopping nicely unlike similar courses where you just watch your ball bounce off and disappointingly out the back. It’s enough of a challenge for most players and I’d go back. I don’t expect the world for £14 and other courses nearby of same level charge upto £30 so I think it’s good value. The 9 hole looked more popular and at 15:00 tee time I was one of only a few left out on the 18 so great opportunity to get some good practise in.

Good course once ! Avoid.

OK so recent heatwave has made lots of courses baked, Cray is brown with hard earth. Greens had holes in them that showed no sign of being repaired and had obviously been there for some time.
One of the hottest days of the year teed off at 11.40. got in about 3.20 only to find food and drink bar closed at 3.15!
Also Ruxley course appeared closed, driving range closed overall disappointing. Avoid there are better courses available at similar price.
