Sittingbourne & Milton Regis Golf Club

Sittingbourne & Milton Regis Golf Club

Course Information

The club was formed in 1929 by an enthusiastic group of golf enthusiasts who invested their time and money in the construction of the course – with several of the original holes remaining to this day. 

This is a members’s club, run by and for the members, with the main objective being to provide a high-quality course throughout the year – which is one of Kent’s best. 

The course has an excellent reputation for playing conditions throughout the year and some of the best kept greens in the South of England.

It measures 6,295 yards with a par of 71 for men and 5,546 yards par 72 for ladies.  

Trees are the key feature, with many holes calling for an accurate tee shot – length is often not as critical.

Sittingbourne has a challenging opening hole which is played into the prevailing wind and slightly uphill. 

There’s a bunker to the right of the fairway at around driving distance and it’s a difficult green to hit – with a bunker front left catching many second shots. 

The 6th is a sweeping, downhill dogleg to the left, with trees tightly lining both sides of the fairway.

The green slopes from back to front more severely than it appears. Par is always a good score with very few birdies on this hole.

The 6th is a sweeping, downhill dogleg to the left, with trees tightly lining both sides of the fairway. 

Your tee shot should be kept to the right of the fairway to open up the best line in, as anything shorter and to the left will be blocked out by the trees. 

The putting surface is set below the level of the fairway and is hidden by a bunker 30 yards short of the green.

The 11th is the the shortest hole on the course, but does not always play as easily as it appears, with a green elevated slightly from the surrounding area and the wind often swirling through the trees. This hole can play totally different lengths from one day to the next.

The penultimate hole is a short par 4 which is often played downwind and encourages bigger hitters to ‘open their shoulders’. 

The drive needs to be fairly straight to avoid the trees on both sides and the approach is to another elevated green that slopes from back to front.

Sittingbourne is known for its challenging and well-maintained course, a friendly welcome, a well-stocked pro shop and excellent bar and catering facilities – ranging from bar snacks to magnificent banquets.
