The storm of 1987 created an ideal location for Westerham Golf Course from mature woodland. With stunning views over the undulating Kent North Downs, Westerham is easy to get to from the M25, located between junctions 5 and 6 on the A25, just half a mile east of Westerham village.
Westerham is set in mature woodland with stunning views across the North Downs. Tree lined fairways, strategically placed bunkers and three beautiful water features makes this course a solid test for any standard of golfer.
Westerham Golf Course was opened in May 1997 and encompasses established forestry producing the impression of a course mature beyond it years. The 6,270 yards, par 72 course has been built to a very high standard, with USGA specification greens and irrigation installed throughout which allows greens to be played 12 months of the year, and the course to be kept in continuously outstanding condition.
With its exceptional design and maturity it has gained its reputation as a 'thinking man's course'. Lasting memories of the course will more than likely revolve around the 'eye of the storm' par 3 11th, a hole where not a single tree had to be felled; a long iron with daunting pine trees and bunkers protecting a small green certainly makes it a hole not for the faint of heart. With its closing hole bringing you back to a grandstand finish in front of the Clubhouse where the pressure is on to clear the devilishly positioned 18th lake, any golfer cannot help but get that tingling feeling in their stomach; it certainly provides a fitting and exhilarating end to an exceptional golf course.

A lovely parkland course with plenty of big mature trees. The course is not too long but the trees mean it favours the straighter hitter. Greens were in excellent condition but often difficult to read. Overall very interesting and picturesque.

I have played this course many times. You do not have to hit the ball a long way but you do have to hit it straight! Most of the fairways are tree lined and if you do end up in the trees you will invariably drop a shot as the only way out is to play safely back onto the fairway. It is essential to book as the course is very popular with the corporate/society market and because of its reputation it attracts a lot of green fee players. This is in addition to the members and their programme of activities.
Westerham Golf Club is suitable for golfers of various capabilities with a course approaching 6000 yards from the yellow tees and over 5300 yards from the red tees.

What about the weather
The Westerham Golf Club is a true year round golf course. During the challenging winter months of almost continual rain, our Green Keepers were determined to uphold our first class service by keeping us up and running. They’ve done a great job, especially considering most other courses have been closed! Here’s what some of the tee off times users think...
