Pretty course in good condition

It was super hot, but greens and fairways were great and a fair test of golf. We will come back again for sure.

Haven't played this course in many years but it was a welcome return meeting up with old golfing friends.
The course was in good condition and have benefitted from increase membership over the COVID-19 lockdown period like most clubs.

Lovely albeit tricky course

Short course relatively in distance although you have to plot your way round the course intelligently. Some great holes including the par 5, 7th and a great par 3 on the 16th. Highly recommended

Great course and Teaching Pro's

Very friendly club with great teaching pros.. Ive had a lesson there for 2 years now and also play the course on a green fee basis.

The course is in the valley behind Biggin Hill private airport and as such the Spitfire that is based there is often flying about you.. the course looks easier than it is as the greens can catch you out.
The 16th hole is a par 3 gem

Disappointing

Great photos on website & with a standard green fee of £50, my expectations were high. Luckily though, I was delayed today, so paid the twilight rate.
Beautiful rural setting but not an inspiring course for me, with too many shots over hills where you’re not sure where to go Some may like it, but my highlight was the sight and sound of a Spitfire flying over from nearby Biggin Hill.

Played here for the second time. Course had a few temps and some holes that were closed as pretty damp and appeared they were protecting it for the new season. Pro-shop gave a decent discount on that basis so still worth playing and the course itself is well worth a visit. Very welcoming all round and good food in clubhouse pre and post round.

Mr Bojangles

Great course in great condition and little gem. I hadn't played before but was pleasantly surprised with track which was challenging in some places.

The staff were all very friendly, as were the members we came across who all asked if we enjoyed the course.. .the greens were fast-ish but true, the rough was tiger high (June 2018) but fairways were beautifully manicured so seem a shame to hit them!!

I would highly recommend the day rate for the course which give good value

The practice facilities were average and could be better with a decent chipping area and improved range area
