Summary:

Mid Kent is a thriving private members club situated near to the A2 at Gravesend. The Course is something of "a Little Gem" and continues to surprise first-time visitors with its neat and tidy layout and plush fairways.
It is a parkland type course built on free draining chalky downland and, as such, is ideal for winter golf although fairway watering ensures superb condition all year round. Whilst not a long course at 6106 yards, it provides a good golfing challenge and is host to one of the most popular annual pro-ams held in Kent. You will rarely find a member who is not proud of the course.
Our members generate a great social atmosphere within the clubhouse whilst still respecting traditional standards of dress and behaviour.
Visitors are always welcomes.

Played here based on reading the reviews of other TSG Members and I wasn't disappointed. The clubhouse is nice and the staff very friendly (and food good quality and excellent value). £30 for a visitor mid-week which isn't bad. They don't operate a tee time system so it's a queue up and wait your turn system but as we were waiting another two-ball (members) asked us if we wanted to join them so we got straight to the front of the queue... The first is a Par 3 with OOB all down the left (a road!) so not an easy start but the course was nicely laid out, had lots of interesting holes and was generally very well maintained. But the best bit is the greens, full credit to the ground staff they were excellet (and apparently always are). So, if you're in the area pop along, I don't think you'll regret it

I played Mid Kent yesterday in the Royal Blackheath Trophy (http://www.royalblackheath.com/index.lasso?pg=eb1a951ebf27e3cf&v=1&mp=0e89270d41734a96&catid=d4a61c9a1b3af889&mpd=40208e9e64f214af) representing my club Wrotham Heath. It was my second visit of the week as they kindly allowed us a courtesy round off the whites on Monday and I'm glad we came! First thing to mention is the warm and friendly welcome and really nice clubhouse facilities. Apparently Mid Kent has non golf members which I think speaks volumes of the social facilities and atmosphere. The practice green is very nice and representative of the greens on the course. The range is also really nice with both artificial mats and nicely kept grass areas to hit from. Although not long enough for drivers there are plenty of flag sticks out to really get a feel for precise distances. The range is not covered so perhaps less favourable on a wet day. The course itself is extremely well maintained and cleverly thought out and every hole gives you something to think about. During my match my opponent told me that the club had to pay a good price to get the head green keeper there but it was very well worth it and I would have to agree. A comprehensive irrigation system ensures that all the fairways are lush and green and a pleasure to play from. I hear the rough gets longer towards club championship time but it is already punishing (as it should be). There are a lot of blind shots so it’s well worth getting a course planner or better still going round with someone who knows the way! The greens were hollow tined just 2 weeks before we played but you would hardly notice, they were very consistent and receptive and the ball rolled very smoothly and true. If I had a criticism it would be that some of the tees seem quite close to the previous green (though some people prefer that to a half mile hike!) That is merely a symptom of the fact that they really have maximised on the space available to great effect. I would really recommend a trip to Mid Kent and the food is superb too!

An interesting course plenty of room for those of us that don't always hit the ball straight. No water on the whole course. Greens were the best i've ever played on.(and considering the weather we've had recently i can only imagine that they must be brilliant in the summer.)
