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 !.

2 ball

Played on a Thursday. Very busy car park shared with Hotel. Changing rooms excellent. Pre round coffee expensive. No starter at the hut on first tee which is unusual for this course. Started on time following a three ball but pace of play v good. Three and a half hours. Whole course in excellent condition and a good challenge.
Only downside was prices in bar. Shared with hotel and reflected hotel prices.

Aylesford ..Forest of Arden

Second time playing on this course.
I have to say very well kept fairways and greens.
Very good mix of links and woodland holes with its fair share of water.
The greens are rather quick but perfect.
Membership is a bit pricey for the mid to high handicap player who can play once a week
If it was a bit cheaper i would definatley sign up
Highly recommend a ty of golf here

Not as good as expected

Disappointed with coarse considering a hotel coarse. Fairways grass was a bit long. For the same money have played better courses.

Day out

Arrived at the course an hour early to be advised our booking through tee off times had only gone through this morning and that our time had been taken. They squeezed us on but had to be be straight away so couldnt warm up.

well ... I am surprised

Having played the main Arden course many times, I was led to believe that the Ayslesford was a lowly second choice, without much going for it.
Wrong !
What a nice track, not long, but some interesting holes, certainly enough to test most golfing abilities, happy yo go play here again.

Decent course

Good round, had the course to myself as played at midday on a Tuesday. Course was in good condition and greens played well and again kept well.
Only frustration was the green keepers working whilst playing the hole, for example taking the flag out and having to wait for them to do what’s they needs to do but then changing the pin location on return. Not major but annoying as it happens on 3/4 holes in a row.
Overall worth a visit and good value for money.

Flat course

Really enjoyed the round, was flatter than expected, well maintained, the greens were my biggest shock based on pin positions, they were so quick that you really had to think about your approach to them. The pins were placed so that even if you got a foot around them the slopes had to be taken very seriously!!!

Lost a few balls due to the cut grass that had been left along the rough, other than that, great value for money

Mixed bag

Pretty standard course, fairly priced (on Tee-off Times that is). A few little issues, one green with a giant mud patch right in the centre. Otherwise fine.

Pace of play was great as we were out very early.

Didn't use the bar after as had to rush away, but hotel is nice, having visited previously.
