Forest of Arden was an absolute delight from beginning to end. Having looked around at plenty of options, YGT kindly pointed our attention towards the Forest of Arden and we are very glad they did so.
We were booked in to tackle the Aylesford course on the first day which was a fantastic club standard course with plenty of tricky holes. The challenging Par 4 11th was a particular highlight for the group. After our round we nipped into the 19th hole for a couple of beers (reasonably priced) to reminisce about the shots of the day and those putts that didn’t quite make it to the hole.
There was a seamless check-in at the hotel and the rooms were of a high standard, as you would expect from a Marriott. Dinner was a buffet selection or you could order from the 3 course menu too. We chose the buffet and the food was perfectly acceptable. Breakfast was a buffet again and was fantastic as well, with a great selection including continental options, full English and an omelette station for a fresh dose of protein to tee us all up for the day ahead.
On to the Arden...
What a course, with the back nine holes through the deer park. Highlights have to be the par 3 8th over the lake and the par 3 18th which measures 202 yards into the wind and over the lake heading towards the clubhouse. This is a real championship course and obviously the pride and joy of everyone who works there.
If you’re looking for a value for money weekend golf break
with two good courses and accommodation to match, then The Forest of Arden is
definitely worth a visit.
