Kingsnorth Golf Club - A Superbly Run 9 Hole, 18 Tee Golf Club
I participated in a Celebrity Charity Golf Day at this superbly run family owned golf club yesterday and had a fantastic time. I'm always a bit wary of playing 9 hole golf courses because they turn out to be a bit like playing "Pitch and Putt" but this one was nothing of the sort. The tee boxes were excellent, the fairways well manicured and the greens, although just hollow tined, were running true. Although it is a 9 hole course, they use 18 separate tee boxes to give you a different view of the hole on the two loops and some are like playing a completely different hole. Theres a good spread of bunkers, water and trees to make this course very interesting and challenging for beginners and experienced golfers alike. The owner, Mark Chilcott, is a very friendly, welcoming man and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and the Pro, Tom Muchmore, is a really nice guy, not like a lot of pros who make you feel unworthy, he definitely followed the owners philosophy of the customer comes first. To sum up, if you fancy a quick 9 holes or a challenging 18, then, look no further than Kingsnorth Golf Club, it's a little gem in the Kent countryside !!!
