Windy weather
Walked

Great hilltop course - highest in England. Windy conditions will test anyone!

Played this fabulous course last week. Highest course in England at almost 1300 ft. Challenging course made even tighter with the windy conditions. Greens were fast and true - supposedly like table tops with some sun on them! Every course needs its protection - don't be put off by the Par 70 sub 6,000 yard layout. Loved it and will be back for sure

An absolute must play course…

This is one of the most unique, brilliant golf courses we have played. A true test of every part of you game. Expect to get away with the odd bad shot and be punished for a near perfect shot as the links style slopes and bumps dish out their warped sense of justice. No hole more so than the short par 4 18th where you unleash your Sunday best way left of the green towards the club shop and with the patrons in the clubhouse watching, your ball makes its way down towards the green. Those who have been blessed will be rewarded with a rare eagle putt where others have treacherous chips that may return to them with interest. Could not recommend this bracken infested visual odyssey any more…play well or it will be a good walk spoilt!

Great afternoon

2 of us on hot deal offer 11.30 on Sunday. friendly Pro greeted us on checking in . Was very windy but that's to be expected on highest course in England , the sun came out and we could enjoy the fantastic scenery as well as the course. Course was in great condition, no waiting on tees at all , clubhouse for a beer after another friendly welcome from barman.
Highly recommend.

One amazing golf course

I’ve played here a couple of times and I keep coming back: why? It’s an amazing course and great value for money. To play it in mid January in very good condition when courses near where I live are muddy or closed is a privilege. It’s well worth the drive up and if I lived closer I would take up a membership.
If you haven’t played Kington, do yourself a favour and play it. I’ll be back!

Fantastic course and the day was very warm, course dry and could do with water on the greens. We had a buggie which was a bad decision due to the humps and bumps on the fairways.

Some unique holes on the course which gave for interesting shots.

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
