Golf & Golf Courses in Tunbridge Wells

Tunbridge Wells’ golf courses are the epitome of sporting relaxation in a green and rural idyll.

Golf, being an enduringly popular past time, means there are a number of golf courses all around historic Tunbridge Wells.

“This region is a golfer’s paradise” (TripAdvisor traveller)

The 9-hole Tunbridge Wells Golf Club (“challenging”) and the 18-hole Nevill Golf Club (over 100 years old) both welcome visitors and are just 5 minutes' drive from the centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells.

The Tunbridge Wells Golf Club is kept in good condition for both novices and experienced players.  It dates from the Victorian era and still has the stunning views it was created for in 1889.  There is a golf shop there too.

Breakfast could be taken in combination with a B&B stay either at neighbouring Hazelwood House or the Brick House B&B in the town. 

For self-catering, Flying Horse Cottage is a gold award rated idyll only 2.5 miles away. Check the full list of self-catering accommodation, the nearest being Ford Cottage. 

Near to the course, there is The Beacon restaurant for lunch with a continuation of “views to die for” and the Spa Hotel. Two Shepherd Neame pubs are equidistant – the Red Lion and the Beau Nash which both serve food.

The Nevill Golf course is on the other side of town and has a clubhouse with facilities for group bookings and three course meals.  They have a pro-shop and keep the course in a "lovely condition".

With such lovely villages in the area why not take the 19th in a country pub for a delicious  lunch, relishing a typical English scene in the countryside incorporating locally sourced beer, wine and food.

In the picturesque clapboard cottage village of Lamberhurst, visitors are welcomed at an 18-hole parkland golf course that straddles both sides of the pretty River Teise. The ‘signature 12th’ may be a challenge, or not; find out for yourself!

Groups are welcome and the clubhouse caters for informal refreshments and fine dining. Nearby hostelries include The Chequers Inn which has a garden on the river and does breakfast too. The Vineyard is a fine dining option.  The Elephants Head and Brown Trout are 2 pubs just nearby.

The 18 holes at Cranbrook (formerly Hemsted Forest) Golf Club, are situated very near the famous Scotney Castle in the wee village of Sissinghurst. This is a tight and fast course with a classic club house.

Golf in the Countryside

The old market town of Cranbrook is but a par-3 away which has many options for cafés and light refreshments.

Country pubs include The Milk House at Sissinghurst and the Bell and Jorrocks at Frittenden.  There is also the newly opened Knoxbridge Inn (with French chef), the other side of Sissinghurst, and the George Hotel is a large venue in Cranbrook itself.

There are 9 accommodation options nearby, 2 are self catering and the rest are comfortable bed and breakfast.

Hawkhurst Golf Club is a half hour drive south of Royal Tunbridge Wells; 9 holes and includes a river. It is a challenging golf course for all handicaps.

The club has a function room like the ones above and caters for groups.  The bar and restaurant are open every day.  If you are still in need of burning off some energy you could always play a game of squash in their courts!

There is a café for breakfasts in the centre of Hawkhurst and there are a few country pubs  nearby too. Accommodation near Hawkhurst includes 2 lovely B&Bs and a country inn.

Dale Hill Hotel and Golf Club has 2 golf courses based in Wadhurst which is only a 10 minute drive from Hawkhurst. As you would expect from an hotel all facilities are there for the golfer as well as the hotel visitor such as the spa area and full English breakfasts.

Well maintained and a choice of one long and one short course, this place is also good for groups. 

Hever Castle Golf Club has 27 holes of golf in the grounds of Hever Castle where “fairways in top nick”! With this Championship course and long par 5’s you are bound to enjoy your game here.

Only half an hour from Royal Tunbridge Wells by car, there is a medieval clubhouse, shop and you can even stay in the Castle.

Planning your golfing break

There are plenty of options for other leisure facilities to extend your stay.  The countryside is so beautiful, we recommend you take a relaxing walk and admire the ancient Weald land.

Stay in a Bed and Breakfast and it will feel like going home at the end of a day of golf.

Massage treatments are on offer in most of the hotels and salons in this spa area to help ease the golfing aches, why not combine with a spa break

Take a look at the maps, other attractions in the area and the food and drink pages to ensure no opportunity is lost to enhance your golf break!
