The Championship 18 hole Course, comprising the Kings and Queens nines, has been showcased on Sky Sports and has played host to prestigious events including The Kent Amateur Championships, Euro Pro Tour and the Kent PGA Championships.
At a glance of the scorecard, one of the longest holes in Britain, the 644 yard Par 5 17th hole, certainly stands out, however, the course boasts an array of stunning holes. The delightful short 6th and 8th holes on the front nine are both played over water, and a beautiful stretch of holes from the 11th to the 13th (Hever Castle’s very own ‘Amen Corner’) carries over water and small slick greens. However, Hever Castle is not as intimidating as might be imagined, and with a backdrop of beautiful surroundings playing this course is a real pleasure. The course can be played from a number of measured teeing positions with the enjoyment of all levels of golfer in mind. We know that you will thoroughly enjoy the challenge.

The Princes 9 has been named the best 9 hole golf course in the south east by Today’s Golfer and is considered a must play for golf courses in Kent. The course has a wonderful layout and has been built to the highest specification. Although shorter in length from the Championship Course it provides a good test of golf, where accuracy is important, especially on the par 3 3rd and 6th, both played over picturesque lakes.
Course yardage totals: Red 5301, Yellow 5695 and Black 6076
