Went for a Sunday night special - dinner, B&B and 2 rounds of golf. Very quiet, since end of season, but staff friendly and enjoyed our visit.

Weald of Kent
The Weald of Kent is a magnificently manicured 18 hole parkland golf course which benefits from the charming backdrop of the sweeping views of the rolling hills of the Kentish countryside.
The course opened in 1991 and has since developed into a mature and fascinating track. The par-70 layout measures a respectable 6310 yards from the back tees and incorporates numerous elevations, water hazards and bunkers which are designed to test even the most accomplished golfer; nonetheless the well kept and generous fairways mean that the novice golfer should enjoy the challenge as well.
The golf course prides itself on the fact that it is in superb condition all year round. Even during the winter period they don't use temporary greens or synthetic winter tees, this benefit is down to the hard working green keepers who work tirelessly throughout the year to keep the greens, tees and fairways in a tip-top state.
|Designed by||John Millen|
|Opened for play||1991|

The rooms were too small in my opinion, a twin room is too small for 2 people, felt on top of each other. The food took quite a long time to come, both dinner and breakfast but when it came it was amazing, delicious. Hotel grounds are ok, a bit run down and dated, such a shame because the setting is beautiful in a lovely area but the hotel is a let down.
Overall this was a great stay especially as we were blessed with the most amazing weather for mid-October. Rooms - the rooms were very small - we all had single occupancy in the lodge so it wasn't a problem, but I wouldn't have wanted to share. The rest of the hotel/clubhouse was great. Quite small and pretty busy but the staff were faultless. The food was excellent. Overall for the price it was an excellent weekend and we will come back for sure.
accommodation was small but perfectly fine and clean, food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful
Very efficient helpful and amiable staff. Excellent room. Good food. Value for money.

Parkland course, with a number of ditches crossing the fairways at strategic points! :) It was a fair course - wide fairways, not too many bunkers, some water. Overall we enjoyed playing there.
Course was laid out great, mixture of difficulty of holes. Greens were ok for winter, quote a lot of goose poo on a few holes, think that needs to be addressed, just extra matinence or something to shield the pond animals from the green as we found ourselves putting through geese excretion!
We are very much mixed ability from Pro to high handicaps and the course suited us all pretty well. The greens were decent although nothing special (but it is October) and the course was pretty hard underfoot, great for hitting it further but made around the greens a little tricky. A good mix of holes with many ditches and hazards and some lovely views. It was very busy so a little slow on the Saturday. There is no driving range so only a net and a small putting green - but no reason to not come here. They had a starter which seems rare these days - it was a nice touch.
golf course was really nice, greens in very good condition and all 12 of us liked the course and would go back
We (4 of us) had a superb 3 days golfing. Weather was brilliant for September. Accommodation excellent, food great, staff very friendly and helpful. This was our second stay here and would recommend it every time. Green keepers was out every day keeping the fairways clear of leaves the best they could. Greens was in fantastic condition, a bit fast for me though, I just need more practise.
As an average golfer!! I found the course long and demanding but very enjoyable. Need to take a lot of balls. Would definitely return.
