The course was good but the staff in the pro shop were poor
A rule in the middle of summer telling us we can only where white scocks if we are in shorts is a bit late to impose when we are already at the course with black sports socks on. The fact it looks smarter and better in black socks shouldnt matter it is more rules like this that turn more and more people off golf.
Best course in Kent!
Absolutely stunning course with lovely kept tees and greens and great helpful staff and top quality buggies.
Will be playing here in the near future.
Decent for Pay & Play
£26 - green and lush. Decent condition. Course just rotates round the driving green. Hard to lose a ball. Enjoyable but not memorable for any specific signature holes. Clubhouse exterior is dated.
Current issues with accessing due to road blocks
Nice course but a little to pricey
Played the course on Saturday with my son and we both enjoyed playing the course and both finished just below our handicaps which always helps. We did come away with a few observations both good and bad.
Good - both the staff and the members seemed really friendly and helpful both on and off the course. Pace of play was pretty good under 4 hours and that was with us following behind a series of 4 balls. Good adherence to all the current Covid restrictions without being to over the top.
Bad - some of the greens did not seem to be in the best of conditions with several with newly laid sections of grass that appear to be struggling to take in the current conditions, several also had small holes in them which I’m not sure what has caused these but made putting a challenge on occasion. Our main issue was the price which at £45 was just a little more than we thought worth it.
A good day overall though despite me loosing to my son on the last again!!
Enjoyable day, everyone very friendly
We played here today as we struggled to find a tee time, everyone from the guy at the gate, pro shop staff, starter and even the members we came across on our way round were very friendly, course was in brilliant condition and the greens fantastic, would highly recommend a knock here!
good course, friendly staff and members
Easy to book in at Pro Shop. Staff and members/other players we met on course were very friendly. Course in great condition, greens soft to land on but fast to putt.
Great weather meant that, all in all, a great round of golf.
DO NOT JOIN
Joined as a flexible member.
tried to play 2 rounds
1st round the greens were like a bog due to no drainage and tee boxes only a little better
2nd round in hot weather half the fairway bunkers were GUR
Apparently they made a choice between cutting the fairways and sorting the bunkers.
Had a great day - course in good shape and greens great. Only criticism would be that the tees had not been cut and were all slightly too long. Rough was treacherous and once ball went in, no point in looking as was well and truly gone.
First visit, made a good impression
Nice course, varied challenges all the way round. Pretty tight in places, so some course management required.
Still recovering from the recent bad weather so there was plenty of work being caught up on. Greens were true and relatively speedy. They're still working on getting the rough cut and in places it was brutal trying to escape.
Staff in clubhouse very friendly.
The course was in good condition, the fairways are very good and the greens are tricky and fast. A good challenge for all levels of player. I will play it again.
green in very good condition and fairways good will play course again but not on Wednesday till after 12 as this is ladies day
Nice course, abysmal greens
Played Cherry Lodge for the third time yesterday and left largely disappointed at the standard of the greens.
I appreciate that the course is undergoing some maintenance but the greens were the worst I've played. Bobbly, spiked and grass half an inch long. It ruined our round.
A member of our group summed it up perfectly - "it's like putting on a really poor fairway".
Shame, as the course layout is good, tee boxes and fairways were in fair condition and the speed of play was good.
Huge reservations about returning anytime soon.
Great course but awful members.
One of the best courses I've played in a long time. Would 100% recommend this to anyone. The one downside to this is a ridiculous rule of having to wear white socks. The pro was very polite in the way they approached it, but having to purchase a pair of socks for £9 is shocking.
Cherry Lodge. Much improved course. Fast greens.
Played in a 2 ball. Course looks very much better than the last time I was here 15 years ago. Greens are immaculate and quick ! Some tight drives to negotiate. The par 3 8th hole is a picture. We caught up with an elderly 4 ball at the 13th so that last few holes were much slower but we still got round in 3 hours 45 minutes. I would recommend this as a decent challenge for mid handicap golfers. Probably a good option for a society.
Friendly club with well kept course
Played Cherry Lodge for the first time and was immediately impressed with the welcome in the Pro Shop despite them being inundated with cards being handed in after as large club competition. The course is well laid out and was a good but fair test. The greens were fast but true. You can tell a lot of work has been done on the course in recent years and the rewards of all that effort are starting to be felt. Look forward to visiting Cherry Lodge again
Very good course.
Had a very good round of golf on a course that is in great condition with very nice features. Not an easy course, the greens are very very fast but receptive, need to land on the green or the ball will run through. We got round in 3.5 hours but we did have an early tee time so no hold ups. We were made to feel very welcome from the pro shop, the green keepers and the bar staff. Would recommend a visit to anybody with a reasonable standard of golf.
