Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Club Reviews


1. very difficult if that's your thing

I have played Walmer & Kingsdown loads of times. It's an acquired taste.

You really have to plot your way around it, landing the ball short of a lot of the greens, and using the slopes to get near the flags. It's built on chalk, so it's a very firm course. It's nigh on impossible to get much spin at all on the greens, although the greens, when I have played on them, have always been in great condition and VERY fast.

The lack of length puts me off a bit. From memory it's about 6,200 from the yellows, and about 6,500 from the whites. 7 of the par fours are drivable (although a couple would need you to thread the eye of a needle), and every par 5 is easily reachable in two. In fact, when I last played it, I hit the par 5 18th in two with two 7 irons.

That said, when the wind blows, it becomes very difficult.

It's not really my cup of tea due to the lack of length, but within the 18 holes there are a few real gems. I think the 7th is one of my all-time favourite holes.
