What the club says: The course is constructed on one hundred & twenty acres of very well drained undulating parkland course, the higher part having clear views of the River Medway and Thames Estuary.The North Course

There are some very interesting holes to play to create very exciting rounds of golf from the long rolling 4th to the well laid out 14th finishing over the lake in front of the green. The 18th as the last but not least, you will remember 'River Valley' with its long undulating approach to the 18th green right outside the clubhouse.

The short 9 hole course has six par 4 and you may go round twice. The perfect course for those who enjoy the short game and of course for those learning the game of golf.

The long south course is for the longer striker. Three par 5, three par 4 & three par 3. The 8th hole being the longest at 623 yards, a more level course but all in pristine condition.

Interesting parkland course

The course was in pretty good condition but the grass on the fairways was too long (could have been shorter and therefore tighter) and the greens were very soft due to over watering.

Disappointing

Booked at short notice which was good but pro shop failed to mention would be behind a society group which are notorious for being slow. Spent lots of time waiting on tee boxes waiting for group in front to clear. A few dead animals on course so groundsmen need to check more often. After play had to check in with NHS app which was good and good to find a table where we would get served. After 15 minutes and despite staff keep looking at us knowing we hadn't been served they seemed more interested in passing out condiment sachets to the society as they were more interested in keeping them happy to get their tip. With this hour up and left as was obvious we weren't going to get served imminently.

great course

As always the course was at a very high standard, this was the first game that was played since the course was reopened. I had a great time there as normal, there are some very tricky holes, but most enjoyable the greens was of a very high standard, and yes I will be playing here again and agian

north kent marvel

upchurch is good. for every thing, really tough course with lots of blind shots fast and firm greens add to the challenge. not sure how well it drains is i played in august mid way through a drought but there was some forgiveness on the fairways and greens. only negative was the lack of signage. There were some holes where it wasn't clear enough where to drive the ball and being lucky isn't a nice place to be.
