Disappointed

We played on the course a few years ago and we were disappointed with the state of the tees and bunkers.
We returned as the course is under new management and hoped it had improved, sadly it hasn't. It is a course with a lot of potential but unfortunately it has not improved.

So many other options. Staff are uninterested and unhelpful - seemly only bothered that you pay and then allow them to daydream about something else. The greenskeeping staff need educating/firing as the greens were shocking, I\'ve putted on temporary green with shorter grass. The clubhouse shuts way before it should - especially when there\'s paying guests still on the course. Also having a family with a quad bike on the greens/fairways on the course made my blood boil.\The biggest issue is that this could be a fantastic course. Chart Hills, The Weald of Kent, Tudor Park, Cobtree Manor, Ashford, Tenterden, Bearstead, West Malling, Kings Hill to name a few that are in proximity and are either a/ miles better or b/ provide better value for money. \Terrible and unless I hear that they are under new management or ownership I refuse to go back.\I can\'t believe people think this is of standard and actually choose to return.

Nice breakfast upon arrival. But unfortunately the greens were in such bad shape this proved to be a waste of a bank holiday Monday. Especially after travelling 50 mins to get there. The greens were extremely long (have been playing 5 years and they were the longest I have ever seen) and they were also not true at all... When one of our group representing the 8 of us raised this with the Pro Shop he was dismissed with 'it's the only complaint all weekend', which quite frankly none of us could believe.

Disappointed

Looks like the course wasn?t looked after during the lockdown. Fairways were rock hard and the greens need a lot of watering and attention.

Nice course.....BUT !

Played yesterday 6th Sept, On first hole group in front let 3 four balls through as kept waiting 15 mins looking for balls, play was SO slow, really needs marshalls, two ball behind us walked in ,as did we after kept waiting, so if you have a day to spare give it a try. Saw three people in a buggy ? Nice course, but needs control over players ,tee times and course etiquette.Have played here quite a few times, but seems to be getting worse.

In average condition, greens had just been done for the summer so were very sandy. The bunkers were not in great condition. Not a huge fan of this course design. There are too many dog legs so you can't really hit a straight shot unless you constantly lay up short with an iron. Not many holes that favour the long drive.

Not the first time we played played the course, but a number of the greens were suffering and a fair few of the bunkers were in the progress of being grassed over. Will return, but will leave it for a while.

This course seems to be very tired and in disrepair, almost as hope has been lost. Potentially it could be amazing, there are some lovely holes especially around the turn.

I found the bunkers to be lacking in sand, almost like concrete in places, and the greens were woeful, especially the pitch marks that have been left. I would guess that the players show about as much respect to the course as the staff do.

The sad thing as I have already said is the potential the Course has. It could be amazing. I have played here about 15 times in the last year in the hope that it could be improved on, but I honestly don't see that ever happening. It is very cheap, unfortunately, in this case, you get what you pay for.

I have never shot more than an 87 here of off a 17
