Course Open
The Course

The Course at Dartford was established in 1897 based on the heathland surrounded by the villages of Bexley, Wilmington, Swanley and the busy town of Dartford.

James Braid Open Champion 5 times re-designed the course in 1936. The 16th hole is named after Braid which is one of the toughest Par 3 holes in Kent at 245 yards in length played to an elevated green!

The Course is protected by tree lined fairways and small greens so the overall setup of the course is ideal for the accurate player.
