    Tunbridge Wells Golf Club is located in beautiful countryside in the heart of Kent, the county popularly known as the Garden of England.

    The course is one of the oldest in the area, dating back to 1889, and has not changed greatly from the one first enjoyed during the reign of Queen Victoria. Certainly, it retains the same stunning views that have ensured its appeal has endured for well over a century.

    Both novice and established golfers can enjoy a game on the nine-hole course which, while forgiving, has enough challenges to stimulate players of all abilities. The holes can be played from different tees to turn a round into the more traditional 18 holes.

    The club has membership opportunities available to suit all, with preferential rates on offer to junior golfers.

    The clubhouse has excellent facilities and with a magnificent location allied to the expertise of our skilled outside catering team, we have become a popular venue for functions and special occasions.

    Come and see us, the welcome will be warm and genuine and, who knows, a casual visit may turn into a lifelong association.

    HiSTOry

    Tunbridge Wells Golf Club was founded in 1889 by W Bruce Dick, in the grounds of the Spa Hotel of which he was the proprietor.

    Unfortunately, no written records remain from the time and minutes have been lost, so what follows is garnered from information we have managed to piece together after exhaustive research. If anyone can provide any factual details to fill in the gaps, we would be delighted to hear from you!

    When Mr Dick, a fine upstanding Scotsman, as one former member once described him, first came to the Spa Hotel he constructed three or four holes in the grounds for his own amusement and that of special guests.

    That was the origin of the present club Tunbridge Wells Golf Club, which was first registered at the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (the home of golf) in 1896 and which by then had been extended to a nine-hole course.

    Membership at that time totalled 210, with the subscriptions being two guineas (2.10) for men and one guinea for ladies.

    Nowadays we are delighted to welcome members from all walks of life, but this was certainly not the case in those early days. As Eric Carter pointed out in his book The First 100 Years, written for our centenary in 1989, it was a closely-knit coterie, a club of cronies with a few carefully chosen members.

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com 7

    It was not open to all and sundry local tradesmen, in particular, were not expected to cross the clubhouse threshold unless, of course, they were delivering goods.

    Every golf club has its characters and the Humphrey family have left an indelible impression on the history of our club. Sam Humphrey, a larger-than-life figure, served as our professional for 30 years, before being succeeded by his son John at the end of the Second World War.

    Sams daughter Nora once recalled an incredible family feat that saw both Sam and John record holes in one at the second hole within two days of each other. Not to be outdone, Nora completed the treble in the same week by making a hole in one at the sixth.

    One end of our course was very close to the neighbouring club of Culverden and negotiations took place in 1950 to buy that club when it was put up for sale. Alas, the plan never came to fruition and Culverden was soon built on, and an opportunity of turning the two clubs into an18-holegolfers paradise was gone forever.

    Then owner Alistair McNab offered to lease the club to its members in December 1969 and an ambitious programme of refurbishment was undertaken. Seven years later Mr McNab agreed to sell the club and with the help of grants all loans and the mortgage had been paid off inside ten years. Members of Tunbridge Wells Golf Club were now truly masters of their own destiny!

    The hurricane of October 1987 had a devastating effect across the country and Tunbridge Wells felt the full force too. Many trees were brought down around the course but members both men and ladies stoically set to work removing them over the next three weeks so play could begin again.

    It was typical of our membership and their outlook on life: nothing should get in the way of a good round of golf.

    THE COUrSE

    Tunbridge Wells golf course takes full advantage of some glorious Kent countryside to offer a fair challenge to golfers of all abilities. It is expertly maintained to a very high standard and while looking a picture, it plays exceedinglywell too and boasts some of the finest greens in the county.

    The nine-hole course measures 2,368 yards from the yellow tees on the front nine and 2,383 yards on the back nine holes played from the blue tees. All the holes offer a good variation of golfing skills and some present quite a challenge.

    There are four par-3s and five par-4s. You certainly do not need to be a long hitter - the longest hole measures a comparatively modest 414 yards instead a premium is placed on a sound short game, with chipping and putting to the fore. The ability to drive the ball accurately from the tee is also extremely beneficial, with

    trees in play on several holes just waiting to catch out the errant shot.

    The club has a team of very dedicated greenstaff and we have had some excellent feedback about the condition of the course, and in particular the greens, who some of our visitors have described as the best surfaces they have played on all year.There are many highlights to a round, but just to pick out a few: the 2nd is our signature hole, it is a pretty little par three with an undulating green.

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com 11

    The 5th is a dogleg right and requires a drive over water. The tee-shot safely negotiated you are left with quite a tricky approach hitting across an unmade road on to a green that is set in a slight basin. The green runs from left to right and a bunker on the right is perfectly placed to catch any off-centre shots.

    The 8th is a terrific par four for the men. Another dogleg right, you have to get your drive absolutely right as there is not a great deal of leeway.

    We have a well-maintained practice putting green on which you can also perfect your chip and runs and a short game area where you can work on your pitching and bunker play.

    For an illustrated hole-by-hole guide and to examine the scorecard morethoroughly, check out our website www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com though you will not appreciate the sheer beauty of the course until you come and play here.

    HOLE By HOLE GUiDE

    Prepare for your visit to Tunbridge Wells by familiarising yourself with each hole over the coming pages and make the most of your round with our hole-by-hole guide. You can prepare yourself for the challenges that await, as well as pick up some invaluable playing tips from our PGA professional, Sharon Thomas.

    Hole 1, 266 yards, par 4 (Hole 10, 288 yards)Aim between the hill top trees and slightly right of centre. This will give you a clear second shot to the green. Note the position of the flag on the 9th green to your left, it may help you later!

    Hole 2, 122 yards, par 3 (Hole 11, 100 yards)Seemingly straightforward par 3 but beware the undulating green. Many a fine tee shot has ended with a bogey or worse!

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com 13

    Hole 3, 366 yards, par 4 (Hole 12, 383 yards)Aim left of centre for the best position to attack the flag. Straying too far right will make for a risky blind second shot to the green.

    Hole 4, 230 yards, par 4 (Hole 13, 189 yards)A long par three requiring great accuracy to hit the green and avoid the bunker to the left. Anything coming up short of the green will tend to bounce left to right towards the woods!

    Hole 5, 379 yards, par 4/5 (Hole 14, 386 yards)This is a dog leg right. Aim to land right and short of the white post over the lake. This will put you in a good position to attack the pin with your second shot. The Lake on the corner of the dog leg is Out of Bounds so dont be tempted to take on too much!

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com14

    IMAGE

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com 15

    Hole 6, 151 yards, par 3 (Hole 15, 156 yards)Correct club selection on this par 3 is crucial if you wish to avoid the bunkers and stay on the green.

    Hole 7, 261 yards, par 4 (Hole 16, 261 yards)The fairway has a severe right to left slope until you reach the top of the hill, and with Out of Bounds to the right you need to take care with your tee shot on this seemingly straightforward-looking hole.

    Hole 8, 405 yards, par 4/5 (Hole 17, 414 yards)This is a dog leg right but unless you are a big hitter dont be tempted to take on the corner. The green is hidden from view in a hollow and protected by a bunker to the front.

    Hole 9, 188 yards, par 3 (Hole 18, 216 yards)A large green which can not be seen from the tee. Aim over the white post on the top of the bank opposite the tee. Hopefully youwill have noted the pin position when starting play on the first!

    THE PrOfESSiONaL aND THE PrO SHOP

    The Golf Professional at Tunbridge Wells Golf Club is Sharon Thomas, who has been with us since 2007. Sharons initial link with the club was in coaching the lady members,but she proved so popular that we refused to let her go!

    Sharons claim to golfing fame as a player was becoming the Sussex girls champion on her 16th birthday, beating an elite field at Cooden Beach Golf Club.

    Nowadays she focuses her time offering expert tuition to members and non-members and running the well-stocked Pro Shop. Here you will find some great deals available on golf balls, with the aim being to equal or better prices on the internet. All the major Titleist range of balls are stocked, as are Srixon and Callaway.

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com 17

    The Pro Shop also has the latest MotoCaddy trolleys and a wide range of ladies and mens clothing. Here the focus is not so much on the recognised golf brands, but on fashionable garments that look good on the course.

    Glenbrae have created a TWGC emblem showing the Clubs 125 year Anniversary. Glenbrae provide the customer with contemporary and stylish British knitwear. Orders are placed with Sharon for style, size and colour choice as required by the customer with or without Club logo.

    Sharon is a firm believer in golfers having a set of clubs that complement their swing. Shes happy to provide demo irons in the latest models in several of the top brands. Shell accompany you to the practice bay to help you make the right decision and offer advice, if required.

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com18

    A popular and beneficial stopping-off point for golfers looking to improve their game is our teaching professional, Sharon Thomas.

    Sharons aim is to keep instruction as clear as possible to enable the student to repeat and understand the lesson. She generally offers a 40 minute lesson on any particular discipline of the game.

    The members constructed a purpose-built coaching bay giving customers the opportunity to have a golf lesson in most weather conditions

    TUiTiON

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com 19

    Sharon uses several teaching methods to help the student both kinaesthetically and visually.

    She regularly uses a method known as Mirror Image coaching. It involves giving the pupil a demonstration whilst facing them and swinging with the opposite handed club and getting the pupil to replicate the actions. A good visual and kinaesthetic method.

    For the more experienced golfer, hour-long on-course lessons are available and these can be extended to 90 minutes or two hours if required. Group classes are also available by arrangement and can complement perfectly a society or corporate golfing day eitherbefore or after your round.

    BECOMiNG a MEMBEr

    Tunbridge Wells is renowned as a friendly club with a wide and varied membership. There are many established groups ready to welcome you who play on a regular basis throughout the week and weekends so you will never be short of having someone to play with.

    We pride ourselves on having an active membership with a full schedule of competitions for men, ladies, seniors and juniors aimed at players of all standards. There is also a busy and varied social calendar with events for all of the family.

    Membership is open to all upon application you do not need to know anyone already at the club. In fact many new members find themselves quickly part of a regular group of friends.

  • www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com 21

    We have a simply delightful parkland course that looks a picture all-year round and which should appeal to any standard of player. Though not overly-long it is still a test and encourages straight hitters and course management, so often neglected today in the efforts to boom a 300-yard drive off the tee.

    Competitive golfers can achieve an official CONGU handicap recognised worldwide, and play in regular competitions both with their fellow members and against other clubs.

    Not everyone has the time to devote four hours to a round of golf, but our venue allows players to enjoy nine holes and then relax in the clubhouse or return to their busy lives. It is also worth remembering that members receive a membership card which entitles them to a discount on drinks.

The veterans frequently take part in roll-ups on Mondays as well. Theirs is a well-organised, popular section to belong to, with its own society, agm, and annual dinner.

    The Top Dog Trophy is played for by the men and, as its name suggests, is a trophy contested by all the major winners and runners up in club prize and trophy competitions, to find the champion of champions. Bearing a statuette of an appealing little wire-haired fox terrier, it is a splendid piece of silverware dating back almost a century and hard to believe that many years ago it was used as a doorstop in the pros shop until being rediscovered and restored to its former glory.

    Matches against other golf clubs, such as prestigious encounters against other well-known adversaries like the nearby Nevill Golf Club, are regular fixtures throughout the year and these are followed by a meal. It may be nice to finish on the winning side, but equally enjoyable is the warmth and friendship that has developed between our club and our neighbours over the years.

    We also run a Winter League for those that enjoy the course and their golf the whole year round.

    The GadsThis golfing association was formed in August 2001 by a trio of Tunbridge Wells members Lionel, Mike and Paul whose aim was to get a group of friends together to play golf on a league basis. The season runs from September to November, then February to August. This society is mixed and members of other golf clubs are included.

    We often have special deals available and you should check the green fees page of our website www.tunbridgewellsgolf.com for up-to-date information on prices. It is also possible to book rounds of golf direct via the website at preferential rates. Special rates are available for juniors and guests of members.

    Like most golf clubs, we do have a dress code and all we ask is that players on the course are dressed in appropriate golfing attire. If you are unsure, check the website for a list of what is acceptable and what is considered to be a fashion faux pas.

    Come and spend some time with us, play nine or 18 holes and enjoy refreshment in our cosy and comfortable clubhouse offering alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, snacks and substantial meals.

    You would expect a club with a history dating back as long as ours would have worked out how to have a good time by now, and you would be right.

    There is a very active social side to Tunbridge Wells Golf Club and special events take place throughout the year, with one of the highlights being the club dinner-dance held at the HighRocks in Tunbridge Wells.

    It would be simply criminal not to make the most of the picturesque location where we find ourselves and our annual summer ball is held in a marquee we erect on the course. This popular event gives members the chance to dress up in their finery and always makes for a memorable night.

    There is a Christmas party and New Years Eve party in the clubhouse and sit-down dinners follow many golfing matches enabling members to catch up with old friends and golfing adversaries.

    Our creativity extends beyond being able to shape shots on the golf course if you are looking to broaden your horizons, theclubhouse is the venue for guitar, singing and art classes among other things.
