The course was in poor condition with the fairways made out of weeds and the green were so slow you just couldn't get the ball to the hole. Would not play what I did it is a fiver at best

Great course. But difficult to find your way around and members made us feel very unwelcome, as they like to play course in 3 hours......

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.

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.

Lovely test of golf. Par 3's are all a real treat. Rough a little brutal in the summer - anything straying off the fairway and you are probably lost. Greens are brilliant. This course plays as good in the middle of winter as it does in summer. It is not a showy awe and wonder course and looks quite ordinary from the road but play it a few times and the course starts to speak to you. I liked it so much after a few rounds I decided to join a few months ago - best decision I have made, I feel like I'm playing holiday golf all year round.

Third visit to Littlestone for me and the best yet. Played 36 holes in both sunshine and heavy hail. Despite this the course held up very well and made the day for me hitting 27 putts in the afternoon made possible the very true running greens. Otherwise the course offered up the usual blend of links golf appearing as defenceless when I played flawless golf and then a right pain in the behind when I was wayward. Would love to take up the excellent Weekend Membership deal but I live just too far away.

I'm a big fan of this location (with the adjoining Littlestone Warren) and having played again since my first visit was keen to see what others thought here on Golfshake. Personally I've had no problems with members or the club so felt it needed another review to reset the balance a little. This is a traditional members club and therefore it won't be as flexible as some and at the end of the day you are a visitor so do have fit in a little.

For my first round here I just turned up at 7.30am one morning and despite being told that visitors couldn't usually tee off until later I was allowed to play with little hesitation. On my next visit I warmed up 'next door' and then headed over hoping to play at Littlestone on a Twilight Round after 2pm. Apart from verbally checking on my H/C I was given access and tee'd off within 20 mins. The staff were perfectly friendly and approachable.

I agree with other reviews I've seen elsewhere that this could be described as a beginners links course. Whilst this may be partly true its not without teeth and though some fairways are wider and bunkers not as deep that only really takes away from the visuals. This is still a proper test of golf and has some great holes (most of the par 3's) and then in particular the closing 3 holes back into the wind make for a great finish especially if you are chasing a good score. Also it wouldn't have been chosen as a Open Qualifying Course if it wasn't up to scratch.

My only gripe is that I think its relatively expensive for its status at £65 a round during the week and £80 at weekends. But then again the next best courses of this type in this location are at Deal and Sandwich and yes there are clearly a step up the green fees almost double. The adjoining course is a lot shorter and less refined but a lot more accessible and with small greens is a reasonable test of golf also. And at around £16 a round is a bargain.
