First laid out in 1926 there have recently been some alterations to the mature parkland design at Ashford (Kent) Golf Club. Although predominantly parkland there is a woodland edge to the course, mainly lining the fairways, which most find at least once on their way round. Another hazard to avoid is water which comes into play on 13 of the 18 holes, either off the tee or on approach. The fairways can be fairly generous but picking the right spots is key for an easy approach to the greens.
Just north of Ashford next to the M20.
Given the time of year we played, the course was in pretty good condition, albeit there were about 5 temporary greens. The pace of play for the first nine holes was slow and there was a 'queue' at the 10th tee, but once that cleared we sailed found the back nine.
I recommend this course
Noise from motorway on every hole. Course in good condition.
This is a parkland course with a lot of good holes and kept in good condition. Downside was that it's a bit criss cross so take care as balls can come from anywhere. The other downside is a large part of the course is next to the M20 and it's pretty noisy and that was in dry conditions and the trees had their leaves on. I suspect it would be very noisy in wet conditions especially in the winter months. Having said all that it's worth a visit at the golfnow rate but only has one teetime at 9.40 am.
