Hever Castle Golf holes
May 11 2018 | Golf History

Holes at Hever Castle Golf Club have been renamed to reflect the history of the estate.

The 18 holes on the Championship Course and 9 holes on the Princes Course have been renamed after areas of the Hever Castle estate dating back to 1748.

Golfers will be able to tee off at holes including Cleves Walk, Coney Burrough and Old Smugglers on the Championship Course and Butchers Mead, Strake and Bakehouse on the Princes Course.

The names have been decided from looking at where the holes appear on ancient maps of the estate.

General Manager Jon Wittenberg said: “We saw an opportunity to bring some of the historic names back to life, bringing some character to the Golf Club as well as reflecting some of its heritage. We hope members will enjoy playing the ‘new holes’.”
