EXPRESS GOLF AT HEVER CASTLE GOLF CLUB
We are pleased to announce we have introduced ‘Express Golf Course’ featuring oversized holes and a shorter course, perfect for those who are just starting out or looking for a quick, fun round of golf with friends.
Located alongside the Princes Course, the new 9 hole course plays over a shorter length of 769 yards and takes less than one hour to complete. Each hole is around three times the diameter of a regular hole making it easier to putt the ball.
The Express Course provides newcomers to the game with an early introduction to the golf course as opposed to just spending time on a driving range. It is hoped that the new course will attract a wide variety of potential golfers of mixed abilities by making the first step into golf more fun and less intimidating.
However, the course isn’t just for newcomers and even experienced golfers can enjoy the shorter course as it provides a nice option for those with a love of the game but very little time to play.
It was in the 1920s that golf first featured on the Hever estate when a private 9 hole course was built for the enjoyment of then owner, William Waldorf Astor. The original course survived until the Second World War when it was sadly abandoned during the war effort. The Championship Course was created in 1992 and the Princes 9 Hole Course opened in 1998.
The Express Golf Course costs only £5 per round and must be pre booked. Cost includes equipment hire.
