Played here following a round at Princes earlier in the day. Was therefore quite tired when doing so. Course was more of a walk than initially anticipated and certainly goes up and down over the 18. Lost of variety after a comparatively inocuous start. Greens were decent and course was also in good condition. Friendly in pro shop and a steal at £25 playing post 3pm. Can't comment on the clubhouse as didn't have time to use. Would like to head back and play again at some point.

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".

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.

Returned to this course today. As always it's a pleasure to play. Greens had been HT'd and sanded, but still good to putt on. Fairway were excellent and the ball was running a long way. Great club with very friendly members and staff. Haven't played here in bad weather conditions and I bet it's a lot tougher.
The Brains SA was a plensent surprise back in the bar. A great days golf.

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.

played here on the 5th June with a society and cannot overstate just what a fab course and club this is. the members were extremely welcoming, the course was in great condition, albeit we played a week before their open competition week and the rough was extremely long and punishing. the greens were as well kept as any I have seen locally and to top it off almost every hole has a view of the English channel. The only fly in the ointment was the pro shop who forgot to provide us with nearest the pin and longest drive markers but given the quality of the course not one of our group even complained about that! great course.

With current conditions, very dry, fast fairways, and strong winds it proved difficult to play the course. There are steep slopes on most of the holes making it important to be accurate with teexshots. Greens in very good condition. Recommend a buggy if you play here.
