What the club says: There is a natural difficulty in describing how to play any seaside course owing to the changing winds. You should read the suggestions noted on each of the hole pages and perhaps they will be of some help. Although the club is located on the South Coast the course lies on a North-South Axis. It runs out for 9 holes with the prevailing South West wind at your back.

Many professional and amateur golfers have enjoyed playing this course, among them the great Harry Vardon.

Delightful links

Think links golf - think Kent! This absolute gem is up there with the best of them - it's beauifully maintained and well laid out. It's challenging, yet playable - though, like a true links, each hole plays differently with a change in the wind. Littlestone comes with a charming clubhouse and shorter 18 (The Warren) if you fancy a warm-up round. Put it on your 'must play' list!

Great Links golf course

On the day I played it was a warm day with a moderate breeze the front nine played well. But the back nine were a greater challenge due to being mainly against the wind.
The fairways were tight and bare in places. But overall course in good condition. Greens were excellent and consistent speed.

Excellent links course with exceptional greens. Highlight is the par 3 17th played from an elevated tee by the sea.

Superb venue and facility

Held Open Qualifying and has some of the best greens I have seen all year. Some brilliant holes with some of the best golf architects combining to create a superb venue. Customer service was brilliant and I will definitely return. Don't forget the smaller but equally testing course next door. Both are gems!

Awesome Course

Never played here before and a lot of blind greens and fareways so first play would recommend buying course map. Course condition great and greens bit hard but otherwise excellent condition, pure and smooth and very curvy, but rewarding. Would highly recommend this course.

Felt a bit robbed in that asked for a twighlight tee time and was told none available between 2 and 4pm due to a competition that didn't materialise and therefor had to pay £80 instead of £50. Greens unbelievably sandy and slow. Such a shame as took a friend and told him how wonderful a course it was. Rather disappointed. Having played last summer, am sure the course will improve as the weather does.

Best links club in Kent

Yes - it's not hosted the Open (like Royal St Georges, Princes or Cinque Ports), but this is a proper links club. Totally unsnobby, this is a club and course for golfers. The course is great fun - it was with the wind for most of the front 9 and against for most of the back 9. The opening hole is a short par 4 with deep bunkers down the right and rough up the left. The drivers came out and it was course 1 visitors nil. Stroke index 18 too. Beautiful green though - smooth as silk and slippery fast. Truer greens I've never seen. The second was over a brook and through a gap in massive dunes. Tough. Third was a blind shot over dunes and the fourth back into the wind to a raised green. Hole 5 is a par five over a diagonal of bunkers - long but fair. Then a great little raised green par 3 (interestingly the 4 par 3s all face in different directions so we got and failed a good wind test here. They're all beautiful but difficult). There was another par 5 to follow - an easier one thankfully. Then a cross wind par 4 and a par 3 towards the sea. We scored okay up to this point but the battle back to the clubhouse was about to begin. I think hole 10 is stroke index 1. A long par four dogleg right. Plays about 14 clubs longer than you think. And it doesn't get any easier. The highlights of the round came with a surprise from the 16th onwards: A really long par 4 (a par 5 surely!) was a real tester into the wind. Then on a raised tee box - the 17th - is one of the most perfect par 3s you will ever see. Right into the pipe of the wind, a green is laid out ahead of you with a ring of bunkers, and sloping from back to front. Hit that and you are worthy of joining this golfers club I reckon. Gorgeous. The round ends with a lovely par 5 - birdied into the wind. Celebrations all around.

In the clubhouse, you'll find golfers. None of that tie and jacket nonsense of St Georges or Rye. It's down to earth stuff here in a lovely old clubhouse with normal golfing fare at good prices.

Looking back, these were the best greens we encountered on our tour. The course is testing but varied and fun. We'll be back.

A great course and real test when the wind is blowing. I don't think I have encountered a more attractive golf hole than the 17th! The rough had been cut back when we visited but as it grows during the year beware - you will be severely punished for anything that is offline.

Very friendly and helpful in the clubhouse. Take advantage of the breakfast they do at the Littlestone Warren XIX clubhouse which is a short walk from the main club.
