Great little track

The green were still in very good condition. Tees were starting to get wet due to time of year. Overall course was in good condition.

Its not too challenging as a course as several par 4 holes are short. But overall i really liked the day out

Old fave

Been playing High Elms for 30 years and it remains one of the best layouts around for a public course and for value for money. Course in very fair condition for mid-October. Fairways struggling in parts, like many other clubs, following hot summer but no issues. 3 and a half hours very good. Still gotta re-lay that 10th green, though - absurd slope!!

It has been better

This course has really nice layout but currently isn't playing well. Some fairways are very patchy and the greens have been hollotined. Overall I would still recommend but maybe give it a few weeks.

Really enjoyable day out

Enjoyed playing High Elms. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. More importantly, the course appeared to be well managed , clearly signposted and easy links between green to next tee. Course pleasantly laid out. Wide fairways lined by masses of beautiful trees..

Fairways understandably patchy in places after long summer drought but greens were excellent condition; true and fast. .

Perfect weather

Great way to spend a Bank Holiday Monday

I can thoroughly recommend High Elms GC in Orpington. Having spent nearly 20 years paying inflated prices at a private course which was closed more in the winter than not, due to the poor drainage,. High Elms offers great value for money, easy booking facilities, a fair challenge (golf-wise), a well maintained course and fantastic changing rooms. We had minimal hold ups and we managed an enjoyable round.The staff are helpful and friendly and the clubhouse is family friendly and an light and airy.

All in all, a perfect way to spend a bank Holiday Monday. Thank you!

Pro Shop

Played here for the first time in several years ago and was disappointed with the new set up in reception, which now acts as a cafe/ bar /pro shop. The golf stock was very limited,

Really nice course to play

Really pleased we played it, fairways and greens in excellent condition, nicely set out and scenic, good for intermediate golfer like myself, greens were a bit slow, but no compliant's, second 9 was a bit of a trek, but over all enjoyed playing the course, staff friendly and club house good. definitely play there again.

High Elms Golf Course

Unfortunately the weather was absolutely freezing and in the open parts of the course the wind was biting to add to the misery the rain came halfway round and did not stop. The course was in fairly good condition however the temp tees are always not good wherever you play. Only 1 temp green on 7th hole

Green Blues

Course overall was in very good condition, the fairways were well cut as was the light rough. The only criticism I have to make is that some of the greens weren't particularly in good shape, the putting surface was difficult and inconsistent admittedly not all greens bit I would say 60% of them.

Wet weather

nice course

The course was in good condition, really great to find a course that takes care of their bunkers, so many dont. look forward to playing here again. one warning for other golfers get there early, as people who use the country park like to fill the golf course car park, rather than the country park one.

Nice Course!!

Although we played the course in the pouring rain that had the advantage that we were literally the only 2 people on the whole course.Tees and greens were in good condition considering the weather and fairways were also good.Although it was a shame about the continuous rain i would recommend this course and it was fantastic value for money
