Great value

Played here 4 times now.
Small course but very enjoyable.
Makes a nice change from larger more difficult courses.

Hythe golf club.

Hi, this is the second round I’ve had on Hythe. I have enjoyed both times. 2nd time was a bit slower due to several 4 balls and just the nature of the layout. It does cause a few bottlenecks but not major. There are half a dozen shared greens which can make it slightly awkward depending on which nine you are on. As for the staff, admin, greens etc a warm welcome and a very pleasant experience.

Disappointing

The setting is fabulous but the golf course falls short.
It is not challenging as claimed on the club web site.
To provide 18 holes, this course has shared greens meaning that you are effectively playing the same hole from a slightly different tee.
The web site does not make this clear.
Due to the shared greens and close proximity of tees our round(two ball) was painfully slow waiting for others to play despite the fact the course was not busy.
Not a real test of golf and not value for money for the visitor.

Hythe Imperial Golf Course

A 9 hole golf course with the option to play 18, yes that may seem obvious but you need to bear in mind that doubling up on holes can be congested and hold up play.
Nevertheless it works well and the course provides a good test for both beginners and low handicappers.

RCDF Hythe Golf Course

An interesting 9 hole course which plays as an 18 rather well - do remember to pick up the free course hole map as you will be confused if you do not whilst playing 18 holes.

Excellent staff

This is the 4th time here.
Can be confusing with cross overs and playing holes twice.
However the staff are excellent and friendly.
Course greens were excellent.
Value for money is 2nd to none.
Allways enjoy playing here.

Good to get out

Played when it was a bit drizzly and breezy. Greens were really good condition. Not the fastest greens but a good pace with a good variety at each hole.

Course was generally in good condition, easy enough to navigate apart from finding 14th tee.

Definitely a links feel to it. The course itself is close to the beach with a road separating them. The road sits above the course so you can make juding wind tricky.

Will play again and at £24 for for 8 holes was good value for money.

Some of the members lacking in etiquette. 18 hole course. No!

Overall condition of the course was cracking and the greens were pretty much immaculate. Oh and fast, very fast.

The biggest annoyance of the day (and soured the round) was the lack of etiquette from a group of older ladies who teed off 10mins before me (lone golfer). I was being held up from the 2nd hole despite them being 10 minutes ahead just one hole previous. Now I didn't expect to be let through immediately however it got to the point where I attempted to wave through a 2 ball through to see if they would be let through by the ladies but those guys said no, as they weren't in a rush (neither was I) but there was a single golfer closing in on them and what looked to be 2x 3 balls following on behind him. Thankfully after almost 2 hours they completed the front 9 and left the course. (2 hours doesn't sound bad but it's a short course and I was off the course, 18 played in just over 3 hours 10 mins)

I've been pretty critical of the layout because on a busy day the shared greens will make this a nightmare to play.

1 is shared with 10, 2 with 11, 4 with 13, 6 with 15, 8 with 17 and 9 with 18. Absolutely crazy. Then you have the 14 which tees over the 4th, 8th, 13th and 17th fairway.

It would make a better long 9 (or 12) hole course. 18 is too cluttered with too many shared greens.

Had a chat with the new boss and hopefully things will improve as he seemed keen to make a few alterations and updates.

Quirky layout!

Quirky layout, where you need to be aware of other golfers playing, around you. Never been on such an open course where it has been so difficult to locate one's ball after a shot. Card map of the course didn't exactly match the info/pin placement, on each hole, and signage as to where to go could have been better on one or two holes.
General condition was good, if grass, a little on the long side, everywhere.

Avoid at peak times!

Nice flat and straightforward course. Feel as though the course has been squashed together. Four holes aim towards one green! It could be made into a really good 9-hole course.
