Everything you could want from a parkland course. I’ve played this course a umber of times over the past couple of years in the spring/summer season and every time the greens have been the fast pace that you would expect from a premium golf course but were soft to land on which is hard to come by on most courses in the area during summer. Every putt remained true to the line and rolled well. The greens are generally very well guarded by a mix of water features and bunkers.
Water is a very prominent feature on the around the course with streams and ponds guarding many of the holes. The loop of holes from 11 to 13 provide, in my opinion, the best water holes in all of Kent This combined with the length of the course off the back tees make it a course where you have be accurate AND a long hitter to score well where many many courses tend to be either one or the other.
The course is a reason to visit alone however the clubhouse facilities and practise area live up to the expectation that the course would give. All the staff are incredibly friendly and there is an outdoor waterside terrace that we put to good use after our round. I would definitely recommend Hever to anyone in the area as anyone who truly appreciates an aesthetically pleasing whilst challenging parkland course will not regret their visit.
