Needs a lot of work.
Our tee time had been put directly behind a club competition match with no gap and therefore the pace of play was very slow having to wait on every tee box from 1-18 for the group in front to tee off. We were told at one point to slow down.
Greens as expected were still repairing after the winter works.
The fairways need a good cut as they were almost the length of most 1st cut roughs. The bunkers had no sand or it was compacted and needs works.
Boy has this course gone downhill.
Greens were awful with lines like the
Turf had been relaid but they hadn't.
They were bobbly and nowhere near true.
There were countless GUR areas and should have been more.
Fairways a touch on the long side and tees
were fine. Not worth £26. They charge a lot more at weekends. I know lockdown has been tough on clubs but don't rob the punters !
Sat Nav on buggies with digital scorecards and range finders built in. Sensational.
Greens still being repaired
Greens in various states of repair and the course is a bit up and back with few interesting features
greens in terrible co ndition
I was warned on website that greens had not recovered from irrigation works duriduring last winter.
They were right. Greens in terrible condition. Will wait 2months before returni g
Terrible greens for this time of the year ,
Pro shop shut for refit !
Lovely course. The greens are in mid works of new drainage system. But when completed will be a hidden gem for me
A sad golf course
Unfortunately in very poor condition. Pre warned about greens which were atrocious, however the fairways were impossible to differentiate from the first cut as the grass was so long. They also had lots of mud patches as they've seemingly have not been cared for over.winter. Tee boxes again a sad state of affairs. To top it off pace of play was horrendous. No Marshall's to stop slow four balls playing under the old rules of golf. Not worth the money and a dull up and down golf course with no interesting features.
Nice but greens under repair
It's a lovely course, great staff and welcoming members. The only issue (and there was a warning, granted after the booking was made) that there are several greens under repair. They were pretty bad. The one on the 3rd or 4th was completely unplayable.
Once these are sorted, I'll look forward to coming back again!
The worst greens
There are tram lines down every single green as if someone’s just laid garden turf with little care and attention making it impossible to play them. They’re also concrete dry.
The course was good but the staff in the pro shop were poor
A rule in the middle of summer telling us we can only where white scocks if we are in shorts is a bit late to impose when we are already at the course with black sports socks on. The fact it looks smarter and better in black socks shouldnt matter it is more rules like this that turn more and more people off golf.
Best course in Kent!
Absolutely stunning course with lovely kept tees and greens and great helpful staff and top quality buggies.
Will be playing here in the near future.
Decent for Pay & Play
£26 - green and lush. Decent condition. Course just rotates round the driving green. Hard to lose a ball. Enjoyable but not memorable for any specific signature holes. Clubhouse exterior is dated.
Current issues with accessing due to road blocks
Nice course but a little to pricey
Played the course on Saturday with my son and we both enjoyed playing the course and both finished just below our handicaps which always helps. We did come away with a few observations both good and bad.
Good - both the staff and the members seemed really friendly and helpful both on and off the course. Pace of play was pretty good under 4 hours and that was with us following behind a series of 4 balls. Good adherence to all the current Covid restrictions without being to over the top.
Bad - some of the greens did not seem to be in the best of conditions with several with newly laid sections of grass that appear to be struggling to take in the current conditions, several also had small holes in them which I’m not sure what has caused these but made putting a challenge on occasion. Our main issue was the price which at £45 was just a little more than we thought worth it.
A good day overall though despite me loosing to my son on the last again!!
