What the club says: For over 125 years golfers have enjoyed the beautiful wooded course and warm hospitality the Wildernesse Club has to offer. Founded in 1890 the Club has a proud heritage and today is a private members' club with an unassuming style which conceals a very special place for both members and visitors to enjoy the game we love.

Often considered the best inland course in Kent, during its history Wildernesse has been honored to host many prestigious golf tournaments and is currently used by the R&A as a Regional Qualifying Course for The Open until 2019.

Whether you are planning to visit us for the day, would like to join our membership or wish to hire our facilities for a private occasion we look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you.

Henry Longhurst, the renowned golf writer and commentator wrote of Wildernesse:

“I often think that golf is something of a sin in such a lovely setting.
The plodding golfer, his eyes glued to the ground and his thought confined to the prosaic details of his task, sees nothing of the beauty that is on every hand”

Great course

Fantastic course, great condition from tee box to green. Varied challenges around the course and any loose shot punished. Greens receptive all year round. Lovely club house drinks and food.

One of the best

I went here on a charity day, had a mare but the greens were probably the best i've ever played. Very difficult course for me but will definitely be going back soon

Privilege to play

We were privileged to play this course on a Charity Day and as you would expect for a course used for the Open Qualifiers it was in superb condition despite the recent heavy rain. The greens in particular are challenging because of their pace and gentle slopes. The food served was excellent as was the service.

Great course - lovely set up. The greens in particular were excellent for this time of year playing much faster than other courses.

First time at Wildernesse, and i'd been looking forward to it for ages. The whole day surpassed my high expectations, great clubhouse, changing room, practice facilities, course layout and conditions. I'd certainly recommend Wildernesse to anyone happy to pay relatively high green fees, and I intend to return.

Really good course - on of the best played on. In very good condition - although greens had had some maintenance recently - expect they would have been very fast otherwise! Definitely a course worth playing

Played in the unseasonably warm weather. Course is beautifully mature and wooded, feels very secluded. Very well designed course provides an excellent challenge and not easy to score - if you are long off the tee you have to think about placement and will need to shape it both ways if you pull the driver. Greens were excellent for October, and deceptively quick downhill. It's a quick course to play - the back 9 especially flies by. 2 of us were round in a tad over 3hrs, a 3-ball having let us through very efficiently at a par 3.

A couple of the holes had very major groundworks ongoing which meant the majority of the hole was GUR, especially in the landing zones off the tee. This was a shame as we couldn't really get a proper feel for the holes.

Food was ok afterwards, albeit the club sandwich was not hot and the chips were not fully cooked.

Well presented course in a beautiful woodland setting requiring careful planning to plot your way round. Great mixture of fades and draws off the tee.

Excellent service in the clubhouse.

First time playing this course. Beautifully set up although the greens and approaches had been sanded. Greens were fast and true. God knows what they are like when they are perfect. Great course to shape shots especially on the long dog leg holes. Par 3's are lovely. I had two bad holes that spoilt the round but overall I really enjoyed it. Will definitely come back as long as I can get a £30 deal. Possibly the normal £60 per round is a bit steep bearing in mind some of the other courses locally ( Hever, Dale Hill, Chart Hills, North Foreland)
