What the club says: The Ridge Golf Club is a 6,242 yard course was designed by Patrick Dawson, architect of the Belfry. The superb views over The Weald and the layout, including 20,000 established trees, give the course a mature interesting feel.

Lovely setting that looks better each time

The new owners continue to improve both the clubhouse and the course. The tees let it down as most need levelling and reseeding. It is a little high on price compared to similar standard courses in this part of the county.

:ovely Parkland Course

Lovely course in beautiful countryside. Not too long but many doglegs - particularly on front 9 - where judging distance is important. Takes a long and accurate drive to cut the corners. Straying off the fairways can often be less disastrous than other courses - there is no heavy rough, the trees are generally well spaced, and playing from an adjacent fairway is often not too difficult.

The greens seemed to have been heavily sanded within the past day or two.

We did have a slight argument with the reception when they charged us more than their own website said and more than the price list on the desk in front of us! But refunded £10.

Big changes

This set up has changed a lot since we last played here - an 18 hole Crazy Golf is a fun new addition. The clubhouse looks great and the staff are on the ball. Out on the course there has been a lot of tree felling that allows some great views across the course. the greens were in very good condition.
We are hoping that when we next visit the good work will have moved on to the tee areas (some are still very uneven) and sorted out the bunkers (went in a few and not much sand to speak of).
But overall a lovely looking course.

Course in very poor condition. You need to wipe mud of your ball every time you take a shot. None of the bunkers have been maintained and are therefore GUR. The greens are extermely bumpy.

Joined the club in July this year and have no regrets. The course has numerous dog legs which makes it very challenging. In order to score well you have to think seriously about every shot you play. The greens are very undulating which makes it a stern test. All of the staff that work at the course are always cheerful and most helpful.

Not good enough for what it wants to be

Played here with a friend that’s a member for £35! Shocking the tees were in awful condition, the fairways were either like the 1st cut of rough at a good course or bare dirt, the bunkers should’ve all been GUR as they were horrific, it’s not the time of year as this isn’t at other local courses. It seems this club wants to look good (new pro shop &clubhouse) but not have a course that reflects that. With its location I’m surprised it’s still going as there are so many better courses around (Chart Hills, Bearsted, Tudor Park, the Weald of Kent, in fact just go to Leeds castle and do the 9 holes twice!). £35 for a guest rates outrageous considering it’s one of the worse kept courses I’ve played, and that I’ve played as a guest a courses like crowborogh beacon, littlestone, Canterbury, royal Wimbledon for £35. Then found out they charge £90 for membership!
It could be good with an owner/management willing to put it into the course and my friends excuses about Vovid can’t apply as other courses aren’t like this. Honestly the site should either be sold to someone that actually wants a good course or sold to build houses instead of this excuse for a course.

Decent course with an excellent clubhouse. The course was beginning to show signs of overuse, but this did not detract from the enjoyment. There is no course guide to buy and there were no 'next tee' signs to assist navigation. The course could also benefit with more distance markers on the fairways. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to visiting again next year in the summer months.

Looking good

This club has seen a lot of changes since lockdown began - the extension to the clubhouse is very good, but there have been noticeable changes out on the course. Tees are level, the greens are in great condition and areas off the fairways have been tidied. All in all, great steps forward, a good place to visit although green fees for visitors is a little on the high side at over £30.
