General Information

The course is constructed on one hundred & twenty acres of very well drained undulating parkland course, the higher part having clear views of the River Medway and Thames Estuary.

There are some very interesting holes to play to create very exciting rounds of golf from the long rolling 4th to the well laid out 14th finishing over the lake in front of the green. The 18th as the last but not least, you will remember 'River Valley' with its long undulating approach to the 18th green right outside the clubhouse.

Built on three levels truly a challenge, we at 'River Valley' maintain our temporary greens to a good standard throughout the year. So if we do have to use them in weather extremes they can at least be used for putting. We have a fleet of twenty hire buggies always ready for use. Pre booking is important.

The short 9 hole course has six par 4 and you may go round twice. The perfect course for those who enjoy the short game and of course for those learning the game of golf.

The long south course is for the longer striker. Three par 5, three par 4 & three par 3. The 8th hole being the longest at 623 yards, a more level course but all in pristine condition.
