First Time Playing

Course was in great condition, especially the greens & bunkers. First time playing & was very impressed. Not a long course but narrow & gave a different option to driver off the tee. Will be back again soon.

Good for a quick game

Nice course but obviously not as nice as The Arden. It’s appropriately priced and well worth the £20 current fee. 3 hours on my own even after being stuck behind a 3-ball for a few holes. Some holes are wide open and some are very tight. It’s quite close to the M6 in places so quite a bit of noise.
Overall a decent course and would go again.

Nice short course

Aylesford is a nice short course to play the greens and fairways were in good condition, but I would say the bunkers were rock solid and not raked out ready for the day also no rakes if you were unfortunate to land in one and leave your shoe prints everywhere.
I would play it again but not rush to play it.

Good course.

Not really sure why but didn't enjoy it, trying to find a ball of your anywhere other than the fairway is hard work, not a course for medium rate players, I found it hard going.

The course was a good challenge although it was a little unkept in parts. Tees were poor but greens were fine. We had a very slow round behind a society of 50 ladies.I guess that is what you will always be up against at a hotel course such as this.

£26 for the round is a good price, but £40 for a buggy is steep !.
