Travel Review

Welcome to Evalu18’s Best Golf Courses in Kent – Inland Edition! Some of the UK’s best golf courses are in Kent – a county in the south east of England. Kent has an abundance of great golf and while most visitors flock to Surrey or Berkshire from London, Kent is a worth consideration for your next golf adventure.

Come for Aber’s Gem

Knole Park Golf Club is considered to be one of Kent’s premier inland golf destinations. A JF Abercromby design, it is one of the best examples of this architect’s work today.

The Wild Card

Chart Hills is a short 45 minute drive into Kent and away from the other 4 golf courses. Recently purchased by the same group which owns Princes, investment has quickly followed. You will be hearing a lot more about this Sir Nick Faldo design in the next few years as it returns to its former glory! We think it may just become the premier inland golf destination in Kent!

Bolt On

The Addington Golf Club is not in Kent but it is well situated in relation to the other 5. Another JF Abercromby and Harry Colt layout, the promise of restoration in the capable hands of CDP (Clayton, DeVries and Pont) this course is set for a meteoric rise in the rankings!

Conclusion

The best inland golf courses in Kent are mostly located just outside the London’s ring road, the M25. Moreover, they’re within easy reach of both Gatwick Airport and London City Centre Airport. With food, drink and accommodation and all of London’s attractions close by, the inland offers are mighty tempting.
