Summary:

Kings Hill Golf Club, designed by David Williams, was opened in 1996.
The course, set in over 200 acres of undulating terrain across the old WWII West Malling airbase, has been built to the highest specifications with USGA standard Greens and Tees.
The course was designed as two 9 hole loops with the 9th and 18th sharing a huge single green directly outside the club house. 
With a large investment made in the drainage system and set on free draining Kent sandstone the course is an ideal all year round facility with No temporary tees or greens (severe frost/snow is the only weather that shuts the course).
Being well laid out, with a full mixture and variety of holes, Kings Hill can offer a challenge to the very best of golfers but, being relatively open in nature it can also be enjoyed by golfers of less ability.
The club house has relaxed dress codes; soft spikes are compulsory on the course and may be worn throughout the club house. 
Visitors are always welcome. Contact club to make arrangements.

The course was in very good condition, especially considering the recent weather we've had. The course is very open, probably due to the age, and the front 9 are a lot more interesting then the back 9. Overall, it was ok, but not really memorable.

I played the course after a few weeks of very wintery weather including snow and rain, and to the credit of the staff at Kingshill the only signs were a few waterlogged bunkers. The course was very well drained and played very firmly. I would say the course is very much in the vein of the surroundings; very nicely built, neat and tidy but a somewhat clinical feel. Some of the holes are very close together (2, 7 & 8 in particular) and I can imagine on a busy day it could be very off putting. I will definately go back to Kingshill but I won't be rushing.

Nice course which is good for winter play as fast draining, very US in design, An open course with generous fairways and none penal rough. course just "lacks" something, all four of us mentioned this fact. there is no signature hole, no water or ditches, a lot of the holes feel and look very much the same. basically there seems no character to the course.

I used to be a member of Kings Hill and so have played the course many times. It's laid out on the famous WWII West Malling Airfield of Fighter Command (now covered in high quality housing and business park). The clubhouse is very good with everything you'd expect (only criticism would be the lack of a decnet balcony overlooking the huge double green (9th & 18th). The course is always excellently maintained and, whilst seemingly open, the rough can cause big problems. One of the major attractions is that, being laid out on sandy soil, they don't have temporary tees or greens - the course is either open or closed (and rarely closed). Whilst an interesting course, the only disappointment is that the design didn't bring the man-made reservoirs into play (they are set to the side of teh course). Other than that, a club well worth a visit.
