What the club says: Redlibbets Golf and Country Club certainly is a gem nestled in 160 acres of beautiful Kent countryside. The parkland course boasts hundreds of mature beech, oak and chestnut trees and enjoys spectacular panoramic views.
Redlibbets, under new management from August 2018, is now run by a team of golfers with genuine pedigree where the condition of the course is considered as critical to a great day's golf.
The greens are sand based to USGA specification and the rest of the site is free draining with a chalk subsoil. 
The clubhouse offers wide-reaching views across the site with a balcony that seats 75 people, with additional internal space across three bars for a further 200 people. Our resident chef offers an excellent array of dishes and bespoke orders (in advance) can be accommodated. Historical reviews by visitors frequently makes reference to the outstanding service provided by our staff, compliments that we are all very proud of.

Improves with every visit

The new Spike Bar is great new addition and compliments the improvements you see out on the course. Worth a visit. If you want to be 'picky' - with the rubber linings in the bunkers, you need more sand.

Good challenging course , work that has been done is now coming to fruition. Still some work to be done regarding walkways and paths. Careful placing of the drives for course management is needed..Overall a good test of golf .

In October after a day of rain

Ground still firm and greens receptive. Bunkers not too bad either. In fact course in good nick. No worn out tees and though there is sand on the greens, has been "washed" away by the rain. It helped that it was warm, around 14-15c and not a hint of rain. Mind you had to finish in the dark. The grouips in front were prolonging the agony. We finished in just under 4h 20mins but needed around 5mins more light. Sund=set was 17:59, we finished at 18:25

Hi Marek,

Thanks for the review, we're glad to hear that you enjoyed your round and the course. As a chalk based course we are blessed with having great playing conditions throughout Autumn & Winter due to draining extremely well.

We look forward to welcoming you back here again soon!

The course was in reasonable condition, greens could be better but I guess they get a lot of traffic, Tee boxes needed lots off work skidding around on sand doesn't help. Also a 5+hour round!

Hi Jim,

Thank you for your review. I am surprised with your feedback on our greens as we take great pride in the fact that they have been kept to a high standard even throughout the dry spell we have faced up until September.

You are correct that we are a popular course, being open to all can lead to a slower pace of play on occasions. I am pleased to confirm that we are addressing this situation by increasing our on course team. We are also working hard on the course and on the tee boxes, the sand that you mentioned is part of the recovery process for the tee boxes.

I hope you can join us at Redlibbets for another round to try our greens out again and enjoy a better paced round.

Thank you once again for your feedback.

Great Course

My home club so slightly biased but probably the best course in the area. Given the weather the condition was as good as it could get. The greens were excellent, fairways playable and the beer at the end was most welcome!

they keep finding ways to improve this course and off-course facilities. If I could be picky - I'm not a fan of the rubber in the bunkers, the fine sand blows away and you can easily be hitting the rubber underneath.

Reviewed Jul 4 2022

Hadn't played here for ages. Good deal at £25 for twilight rate. Course in good condition and greens decent if a litle slower than expected. Front and back 9's had been reversed since I'd last been which probably makes a bit more sense in terms of routing. Few of the bunkers could have done with a bit more sand but otherwise all good. Also noted they were construting some new bunkers on a few holes which appeared to be with an idea of challenging the bigger hitters. Will head back in due course.

Lovely Woodland Course

Course was in great shape, greens very quick and undulating, but a good test. We were behind a queue of groups behind a very slow single ball which was extremely frustrating, otherwise a really lovely round, good bar facilities and friendly staff and members.

Good course quite expensive for midweek


Attention might be taken concerning the amount of sand in bunkers (overfilled). Tee boxes need attention but work is in progress. 10th Hole has much better tee boxes than the ones provided. A Very challenging course.
