Fantastic day out

An excellent day spent at Kington. The links style course was in excellent condition. Wide fairways allow for shots slightly off target. The holes were varied and were always interesting. A few blind shots but there helpful markers showing you the way. Greens were well maintained and challenging. Plenty of friendly sheep roaming the course. Players on the course were helpful and friendly and the service and warmth of the staff were second to none. The food was nice and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend and will definitely be back.

Breathtaking views and a course to match

Played here at thier pairs open. Course was in stunning condition and posed a real challenge whilst still rewarding good shots. Cannot recommend this course enough. Just pick a good weather day, we played in the dry and not.much wind. I imagine when the wind is up its handful

Heathland Gem

Kington is a cracking course, not long, but with a premium on accuracy! The highest course in England means not many trees but plenty of bracken and gorse, with sheep roaming the course freely. The views from the highest point on the course are fantastic, though on our visit that meant you could see the showers coming! The greens were a decent pace, but with sloping fairways there are not many flat lies! There are no bunkers but lots of hollows should you miss the small greens to keep you on your toes! A bacon roll and local cider finished the day off nicely.

Fantastic course with unbeatable views.

Played Kington today. You can't beat the panoramic views. The course and greens were in great condition. I was a 1 ball visiting the course and had hoped to find some playing partners. I told the the head Pro that I'd like to be paired up if possible and he very kindly asked the members on 1st the tee if I could join them. They were more than happy to let me join them and were great company for the round. All in all I couldn't have been happier with friendly Pro, friendly members and superb golf. Will definetely play again when next in the area.

Stunning hidden gem

This course has more character than some of the best in the country. Superb greens , and undulating fairways. On a clear day you’d be hard pressed to find better views on any course anywhere

Another great day at Kington

We try to play here once a month, stunning views today and a strong wind that added a degree of difficulty. Ferns have been cut back so a little so easier to find errant drives, greens quick and rarely flat, local knowledge definitely a bonus. Clubhouse and pro shop always welcoming and friendly. Good food and drink selection with a great view of the 18th, a par 4 that is driveable if you can get the right landing point(did it for the first time today but then 3 putted...). We'll be back soon.

TGIF Golf Boys outing

The course was in excellent condition, greens fast and true, fairways well drained and tidy good signage and the weather was kind. An 8mph wind was pleasant and kept you cool at the top of the hill whilst the sun was in full force, lots of interesting holes which you had to plot your way around. The gorse and ferns were well manicured but if your ball went into them was impossible to find which was understandable. The burns around the greens was a good feature and the absence of sand was a relief, the undulating fairways did prove hard to negotiate if you had electric trolleys but again was a feature of the course. The clubhouse was well stocked, the staff and members friendly. The cost was excellent value for money.

A challenge!

Amazing views. I play off 12 and found the course a real test. Some fairways have significant slopes and a couple of times I hit what I thought were good drives only to find my ball had rolled off the fairway. Line of drive is therefore a major consideration. A high handicapper would probably run out of balls! There are no first or second cuts. Fairways run straight to gorse so if you leave the fairway you cannot find your ball. Very few trees at this height and no bunkers. Instead there are sworls next to most greens so you need to be very skilled with a lob wedge to make par. Greens were in excellent condition. This course is well worth a visit. It is unlike any other course I have played. The 18th signature hole (276 yards) is a beauty - playing down a steep hill from a plateau against a huge left to right slope. With some luck I hit the perfect line and watched my ball take a huge swing down a very steep hill coming to rest on the sill of the green. My push chip onto the green gave me the first eagle of my life. What a way to finish!

Very Lucky

Going to be honest is closest course to where I live however considering rain Herefordshire has had Kington is still in great condition.
You will not find a dryer course around and the greens where ridiculously good for December.
If you visit Herefordshire for golf Kington is an absolute must.
