Course is split over 3 areas, which are reached by crossing roads. For some reason today players were starting their rounds on hole 17. It is a course that would suit beginners very well.

Great course

Very relaxed and friendly golf course.
The course itself is not very demanding as there?s no par 5s but bunkers are a plenty.
Situated on the cliff tops between Westgate on sea and Birchington on sea it?s always breezy which adds a great element to the course.
Definitely Worth a visit .

great views

Loved this course very short, but flat and still interesting, great views out to see on a lot of holes. greens are in good condition as are the fairways. A bit windy in parts being on the coast but adds to the enjoyment of the day. Play this course you want be disappointed.

Nice short course that?s well looked after and always in good condition. Playable in winter and can be challenging When the wind gets up on the cliff tops.

Fantastic little course

At the moment this is the best course for 18 holes in my area. All greens are in play and only two temporary tees. Unlike a lot of the other course it?s neither boggy or has standing water. Short course with no par 5?s but enjoyable none the less. Thoroughly recommend visiting

links golf? very nearly

played here a few times and have been blessed with the weather although it a short course it is narrow and firm the greens are not receptive in the dry season which lasts from feb to november the greens are quite flat which makes approach shots a challenge. if its wet and windy make sure you have the samaritans number on speed dial.
