This traditional woodland course in East Kent was designed by Harry Colt – the man responsible for some of the world’s best layouts including Muirfield and Sunningdale. It’s a real test despite being relatively short by modern standards. Both high and low handicap golfers should both enjoy the memorable challenge. Keep the ball on the straight and narrow and you should be able to score well. The closing stretch from the 15th onwards is where the course really shows some teeth. Get it through this stretch without registering a high number.
