Great layout and a fair test

Always enjoy playing High Elms. The course has 18 unique holes, some easy, some pretty challenging. Tees and fairways were in good nick a couple of the greens were a little bumpy, but generally they were pretty good.
I recommend playing here for sure.
(Scored 9 over par)

Very nice course.

Very well maintained course, not badly priced, and pretty out in the open. Not much motorway noise, and quite a tranquil space to enjoy a round. I played in icy conditions, so was a bit muddy in areas, but all in all deffinately one of the dryer courses, with not too badly frozen ground. Staff are very friendly, and professional too. I look forward to returning soon, for a round with more friends!
Thank you.

Shocking service, double bookings, slow pace.

50 minutes late teeing off due to double bookings. 3 and a half hours later, 12 holes played! Walked off the course in the end. 8 emails to them all ignored.
Tee boxes are wrecked. You're basically hitting off dirt and pretty much none of them are flat.
Go elsewhere. Not a mytime active course.

No go in winter

Where do you start a number of temporary greens and more that should have been. Temporary tees to all holes and not good or clean in anyway. Course is very wet and short in winter so not really a test. Dog walker and ramblers just walk out in front of you. Course is a simple layout without much danger and well greens are flat as they can be.

Loads of better knocks around Maidstone and Kent so wouldn’t waste your time paying to play here

Absolute nightmare

Managed to double book our tee time and couldn’t arrange for us to play before 2hours after our planned tee time. Course is in really poor condition, greens not receptive at all. Uninteresting layout with a number of drivable par 4... probably the worst golf course I have seen so far. Would not recommend at all, so many great courses in the area with better quality / value for money

High Elms

Always enjoy a trip to High Elms. A nice mixture of holes and the course is always in good condition.
Was a bit slow to start but the 4 ball in front let us through.

Slow play due to a comp

Turn up to course to say there is a competition being played when tee time was booked for. 2 hours 45 minutes to finish 9 holes. Far to slow.

Tee times overbooked!

I turned up 15 minutes before my tee time. Went to practice in the nets before and there was one group on the tee box and 2 more waiting. I had two groups come up to me and ask what time I was teeing off. Both had the same time as me. I couldn't really rate the course conditions as after an hour and only playing 2 holes I decides to leave. Unfortunately I had booked on here and was unable to get my money back.

Nice course too busy

Nice course layout, some challenging holes, par 3 213 yrds very tough. Liked the course layout. The pace of play was terrible, over 5 hrs for a round is just way to long, to many people waiting at the first, we knew, we was in for a long round. Which was a shame, would play it again just may tee off much later in the day next time

Saturday Morning Concerns

We booked this course having not played it many years, upon arrival was advised that the course layout had changed, the back 9 was not the front 9.

The putting green was very sandy but advised by the starter that the rest of the greens were good....... that was no way accurate - they were all awful. I understand that this time of year the greens need work, but new players should be notified and green fee reduced as no green was of a suitable standard for £30.

As a 2 ball at the start we were advised there were members in front, but they should let a quick 2 ball through, 2 groups did let us through, but at were held up for 13 holes by a very unobservant 4 ball members group hitting it all over the place... who would not let us through and subsequently had to wait on every shot for the remainder of the round. When mentioned about it in the Pro shop, it seemed that this was the normal and nothing could be done about it.

Interesting layout, winter course, muddy underfoot

Being winter time, this course was quite muddy underfoot.The greens were quite bumpy. I enjoyed the variety of the different holes. The only hole that I found very confusing was the second hole, as there was no direction pole showing the direction of the fairway. Being a short hole, I had no idea where to aim my drive. This was the only hole where I lost my ball.
