Great course

Nothing to hard here, no water and no par fives. Good pro and staff as well as a ell maintained course. Well worth a visit

Pleasant course

This is a friendly little club with only par 3,s and 4,s and not to difficult. It’s right on the coast so the wind can be a factor especially holes 2 to 13. It is also separated by a railway line and bounded by two busy roads but other than that a really nice course that isn’t to taxing. Good news is that the drainage is excellent and so plays all year round. Well worth a visit

Great course by the sea

Tight fairways and small greens make this a testing course even though it's not the longest

Great Coastal Course

Challenging little course, consisting of Par 4's & Par 3's situated on and around the cliffs at Westgate and Birchington with spectacular views of the sea. Highly recommended, great value, welcoming staff.

Westgate and Birch

good short course recommended for a society day for beginners, the longer hitters could leave a few clubs at home but a lot of challenging par 3s

Enjoyable course, not long but on a windy day, plenty of hazards and some challenging rough it is still a decent coastal round. Good feel about the place, friendly pro in the club shop.

Overall a nice course, but very tight fairways and lots of out of bounds. But lots of very slow payers. I think 3 hrs to play 12 holes is a bit much. So decided to walk off. 20 pounds is a bit much considering the course. And just turn up with no tee off times. Probably wont play again
