Great course

A really interesting course in excellent condition. I've played this course a lot over the last few years and its now in as good a condition as I've ever seen it. Fairways are good, they have clearly been working on the approaches, bunkers are in good condition and greens are true without being too quick. Some of the views over the channel are stunning.
Overall, it's highly worth a visit.

An unusual course. The distances are often misleading due to big downhill, uphill or sloping fairways. Accuracy is definitely key as a small mistake can be punishing due to the gradients. the front 9 is not too different, but the back has some very strange holes.The 13th is a good example. A good drive to the right edge of the fairway will roll down the hill 50 yards plus to the left to pick up the fairway to the pin. All in all a fun course in good condition and the greens were excellent.

Excellent course in great nick. Bargain at £25 through Tee Times. Members are very friendly and helpful. You hardly ever get a flat lie on the fairways which can be a challenge but it's a great challenge to have. When we played they had HT'd and sanded the greens, but they ran very true although a bit slower than normal. To add to the pleasure they had Brains SA in the bar. Lovely way to end a glorious Sunday afternoon. We will be back

we got a 4 ball for £80, excellent value for money with some stunning views. If it wasn't for the 45MPH winds which stopped the members from going out that day it would have been perfect. Please not if playing in the wind a very difficult course.

Absolutely fabulous course with spectacular views. Greens fairly slow for a links course and it's tough on the legs for walkers unless unless you have one leg shorter than the other!! Staff were fab and very helpful. There were 16 of us and we loved it...the sunshine weather helped also.

Spectacular view from the Cliffs

I thoroughly enjoyed playing Walmer and Kingsdown in spectacular weather with amazing views of the English Channel and also saw the cliffs of France!
The course was in great condition and very trick slopes had to be navigated. Tough uphill par 3's.

Amazing views, tough approaches

I suspect this course is sometimes a bit overlooked, situated as it is just south of the Princes/St George's/Cinque Ports stretch of world-class links. It's not a links - although, on the top of chalky cliffs, it often plays like one - but it is a very classy layout which will test the best golfers. The rest of us (eg golfers like me) may struggle on some of the tougher holes. When I played, it was gloriously sunny with hardly a breath of wind. On a day when there's a good breeze off the North Sea I imagine this will be a beast. It's a glorious location though - you can see France one way and Ramsgate the other from many of the holes. And the course is a proper championship test - long, wide fairways, big changes in elevation (more on that in a minute), large, impeccably maintained greens and some superbly(or devilishly) positioned bunkers. In fact, my only criticism is the three holes on the back nine built into the side of the cliffs. The result is fairways with such a pronounced slope you cannot keep your ball on them. The straightest drivers will find themselves at the bottom of the slope just like the worst slicers or hookers. Some may call this quirky, but to me it felt as if good shots were unfairly punished. A small point, because otherwise, especially on a nice sunny day, you'll have a fantastic experience at "the club on the cliffs".

A beast of a course, when the Channel wind is blowing! A good challenge at any time, the proximity to the coast makes this a real test.
