About Hever Castle Golf Club:

It was in the 1920s that golf first featured on the estate when a private 9 hole course was built for owner William Waldorf Astor’s personal enjoyment in the grounds where today’s Championship Course lies north of the Hever lakes.

The golf course proved a valuable tool for the Astor’s to entertain friends, family and for business.

The original course survived until the Second World War when it was sadly abandoned during the War effort.

The present day Championship Course was created in 1992 and the Princes 9 Hole Course opened in 1998.

The course is one of the best golf courses in Kent and has been built to the highest specification and are a great test of golf in Kent for experienced golfers and beginners alike.
