Lamberhurst is a nice members course set in the heart of Kent. The layout is fun and playable for all levels of golfer. The first few holes are very score able although if you find yourself on the wrong side of the fairway it can be difficult to find the putting surface. The 4th hole is the most difficult on the outward half…a long par 4 with a ditch crossing the fairway which comes into play for the longer hitters or those who get in trouble from the tee. The approach shot to this small green is not a pushover as bunkers guard the entrance. The 9th is a fun dog leg left to right par 4 with a sloping green awaiting the second shot. Hole 13 is good par 5 risk and reward hole with the fairway narrowing in the driving area, once the fairway has been found the player will need a long iron to find this green protected at its entrance by a brook. Lamberhurst finishes with a fun short par 4 which is drivable although OOB awaits the errant tee shot and the green like many others is quite undulating. Although not one of the better known courses in Kent I think Lamberhurst is a little gem, its in decent condition most of the year and the greens have always been excellent when I have played here.
