Great 18 hole golf course
A great overall golf course, greens are in great condition even with how much rain there has been recently. Will definitely be returning
Well worth a visit
I last played her around 4 years ago. Since then the clubhouse has had a major makeover and the clubhouse looks great!! Greens in excellent condition but fairways a little bare but this did not spoil the golf. Will definitely be going back.
Will play again
Excellent course , will be playing again. Would highly recommend
Fairways in poor condition
Disappointed with the condition of the fairways. Really needed some watering! Handful of the greens had big chunks taken out of them. Disappointed
Course condition real let down
Having not played the course for over a year, we were looking forward to the round. The clubhouse redesign is sensational and really welcoming. Good pre-round practice areas and all seemed well as we teed off. Unfortunately walking up the first fairway you could see the problem. Scarifying has been done but without water the fairway has become a dusty pathway rather than a grassy runway. Every "fairway" was the same. Tee boxes were also extremely dry, sandy/dusty. The greens were surprising good with only a few with bad areas. Such a shame as the layout is great. It is evident that tidying work has begun especially the left side of 14 but I fear a relaying or resend of the fairways will be required.
Poor course conditions
Played on BH Monday and fairways were very patchy all over with bare patches and grass length (where there was any) long, greens being treated but very sandy which made any putting a lottery.
Played Mid Kent pre ious day and condition was perfect so not down to time of year.
Beautiful clubhouse and location Great but course needs sone attention to bring it the standard of the other facilities on site
This course gets better every time I come back and play it !! Well done to the green keeping team for their hard work !!!
Not my kind of layout
To many dog leg holes and par 3s not that interesting. Greens were OK but pin positions not great. Played off white tees and were not great condition and couple (10th) were very uneven and point in wrong direction.. won’t be rushing back.
This course has difficult greens
Like most courses this course is struggling with this years extreme temperatures following on from a very wet winter and as such the fairways are very bare and, in places patchy.
The course layout tends to be up and back and has quite a few dog leg holes.
The greens were fast and have testing undulations. Some need a little TLC but in general they were in good condition.
Overall this was a very welcoming golf club. Bar and pro shop staff were very friendly and helpful
Played a two ball. Interesting holes with plenty of dog leg holes. Tee areas need some work and fairways are a bit parched. However, greens are very good which is the most important thing. Will definitely play again
A very enjoyable afternoon spoilt by a few idiots who seemed to think 3 3/4 hours for 18 holes was too slow and warranted mentioning it to a course marshal. Having never before played the course, we felt rushed on the back nine which was a shame.
Good course, excellent staff.
Course played well and greens were in very good condition. Pace of play was also good with minimal delays, usually for lost balls!
Staff in the pro shop were excellent. Very friendly and helpful.
Already booked another found.
No negatives about this course or club. YES my round was slow but that was because of a couple of players ahead really taking their time, but I had time to kill so I didn't mind. Everyone was friendly and I loved every bit of it.
Recent upgrade to the bar and pro shop.
Played here before and left a review, however due to the upgrades I though I'd leave another.
I'll start with the downside: the pro shop cannot control entry to the course as it is too far away. But as all golfers are honest then they won't see anyone sneaking into the course without paying.
The bar has been renovated to a high standard and the fish tank looks great, the menu however is not for the casual golfer (no bacon butties) and God forbid they even have vegan options :) but it works and it's glass fronted so you can catch the other players hitting onto the 18th green (or in some cases the pond)
The driving range is out of the way and wayward shots shouldn't find thier way onto the 18th fairway.
Can't comment completely on the pro shop as it was receiving the final fit when I went in.
Still a good course and not too soggy underfoot.
Excellent greens. Tee boxes not great. Bunkers poor. 3 out of 5.
Teed off at 1pm. 2 ball. Made very good time up to the 9th hole but then we caught up with members. Pace of last 11 holes was much slower which was a wee bit frustrating. The greens were generally in very good condition. The tee boxes were pretty badly damaged and some of the bunkers were very poor. Sand was grubby, not raked, just poor quality. The 8th and 18th holes are very easy on the eye. There is a lot of work going on at The Ridge and this will much improve the overall facilities. All the staff that we came into contact with were friendly and helpful. We booked via GolfNow so paid £19 for 18 holes which is very good value. Completed the round by 4.45pm.
I used to play this course when the Ridge were in the same Veterans league as my club. It was never our favourite venue, and a few years ago they dropped out of the league. This was my first visit for over five years and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised at how improved the course was now. The fairways were in good condition, the greens were true and there was little rough. We had a very enjoyable round. The clubhouse is still being renovated, but I can see that it will be back to its original condition in the near future. We will certainly return next year.
