Chestfield Golf Club

Introduction

Chestfield with its historic connections and attractive layout, and its reputation for a warm friendly welcome, is well worth a visit.

Chestfield Manor is mentioned in the Domesday Book as a gift of William the Conqueror to his half-brother Bishop Odo. It lies on the route taken by pilgrims to the shrine of Thomas d Beckett and was known even then as a place of rest and hospitality. In that respect, little has changed to this day. The present building dates from the 15th century and has been carefully and lovingly restored to provide an attractive beamed lounge bar, a small but cosy spike bar and a restaurant overlooking the 18th green and fairway.

 

There are many features which will attract members and visitors to Chestfield - these include the setting in the Kent countryside, the green verdant fairways, the extensive tree-planting programme, but most of all the friendly welcome in the Clubhouse. Chestfield members are proud of their club and welcome visitors. The most attractive part of the course is undoubtedly the area comprising the first and eighteenth holes, set in the centre of the village near the oast house. The most testing part of the course lies on Shrub Hill overlooking the sea, where golfers will find much to interest and challenge them, not least the new 553 yard second hole. Other less-demanding holes are more subtle in character and offer substantial rewards to the more cautious golfer. Chestfield Golf Club celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 1999 and we now look forward confidently to the future. Join us for the day (or longer) and enjoy a round of golf in an attractive part of the Kent countryside, with a warm welcome in the clubhouse from our members and staff.

 

Club House

Not only does our Clubhouse date back to before the dawn of the 15th century, but it is believed to be the oldest building in the world in use as a Golf Clubhouse. It was originally part of the Chestfield Manor, which was recorded in the Domesday Book. Today, the Clubhouse, with its wealth of exposed timbers and its atmosphere of history, still offers a warm welcome to all who visit. A tastefully restored lounge bar, a newly enlarge but cosy ‘Spike’ bar and a first-floor restaurant, help to make this a most memorable 19th hole.
