Wrotham Heath Golf Club's Festival Of Golf 2022

The History of Wrotham Heath Golf Club's Festival of Golf

capday-172-2

The Club was established in 1906 and celebrated its centenary in 2006. Wrotham Heath is proud of its old fashioned values. Run by the members, for its Members.

The course is a traditional heathland course, originally 9 holes although it is not known who designed the original 9 hole course. Perhaps it was Club Professional "Len Job" as he was certainly responsible for its construction. Sitting astride a free draining sandstone ridge, it has always provided good golfing turf and greens that are playable all year round.

The expansion to 18 holes came in the 1990's. The eminent course architect Mr. Donald Steel was commissioned to design the new holes. After two years of toil the full course was opened for play in March 1995. Since then tees have been extended and a major woodland management program put in place. Reintegration of heather around the course is assisting in the restoration of the original  heathland.

Wrotham Heath Golf Club is Kent's No1 heathland golf course.

WHGC being a members only Club, very rarely opens its doors to the public. However, in 2006  it's Centenary year, the club started what's now become "The Festival of Golf".

The festival concept was to show both the public and golf players  from other clubs, the wonders of its course and its members  hospitality.

Now running for 16 years, in 2022 we are trying to push the boundaries further with brand new open events!
