Golf Course Review

Chart Hills Golf Club is located in the affluent countryside of Kent near Biddenden. The course was designed by Steve Smyers and Sir Nick Faldo and had its heyday in the 2000s. The golf course suffered due to a lack of investment in maintenance and issues relating to construction.
