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.

A well maintained course with good height changes providing the opportunity to vary the hole designs. Well worth a visit.

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.

Lovely course

Been playing the local course for years but only just got back into golf recently, greens are fantastic and always a challenging round. Staff are very friendly although I'd like some of my balls back when they are eventually found

Excellent course that is challenging with lots of hidden pins. I’m a high handicapper but still managed to hold my own and enjoy the game

Quite a stunning course in Kent!

River Valley was maintained very well. The layout was a bit quirky with quite a few blind shots on drives and second shots. The greens were in good nick.

Good course, always a challenge. Like the new course layout on the back 9 on some of the holes. Lots of trees/bushes cut back which will promote speed of play. Greens are in good condition

Challenging without stress

I have played Poultwood for years and always found it a pleasant course to play, it is LA run by Tonbridge BC and they do a great job with it, i have never found it shut although they do impose temp tees or greens from time to time, it is a relatively short course by todays standards but always challenging without driving you nuts.
