Bearsted Golf Club

Maidstone, Kent
Bearsted Golf Club, established in 1895, is a members' club set in over 200 acres of delightful rolling countryside in the shadow of the North Downs.

Our club is situated on the outskirts of Maidstone Kent, less than 2 miles from either Junction 7 or 8 of the M20, making it easily accessible from a wide area.

In two loops of nine holes, our mature parkland course unusually starts and finishes with a par 3. The first is a gentle start but look out for the railway. Indeed, all the early holes require solid tee shots, and generally favour the player who draws the ball, as most of the trouble is found on the right of many fairways.

The course features some beautiful landscaped and challenging holes, many with excellent views of the North Downs and the beautiful surrounding Kent countryside.

Our greens are all constructed to the USGA specification.
With a Par and a Standard Scratch of 71 (73 for Ladies), our course is a challenge for golfers of all abilities to enjoy.

  • Hole 11 provides a very inviting tee shot down the hill, and over the stream and our millenium bridge.
  • Hole 13 is a long par five which bends to the left. A straight drive is required to avoid the strategically placed bunkers.
