Boughton Golf Club
Situated between Faversham and Canterbury, the 6591 yard course, laid out over 160 acres of naturally undulating terrain, takes full advantage of its picturesque setting offering fine views over the Kent countryside.
It was designed by local golf professional, Phillip Sparks and built in 1993. It has quickly established itself in a county known for its golf courses and is popular with members, visitors and societies. Designed to challenge golfers of every standard, the course comprises four par 3, ten par 4 and four par 5 holes arranged in two loops of nine holes.
The greens and tees are generously sized and irrigated with water from two ponds. The natural drainage of the land complements the irrigation system to ensure the course is playable all year round. The practice facilities at the club include a covered driving range with adjoining bunker and chipping area.
There is also a large 9 hole putting green and a 9 hole Academy Course set in 25 acres of orchards. The spacious, attractive clubhouse built in the style of a traditional Kentish barn, with clay tiled roof is a welcome retreat from the course. It has a warming ambience and many attractive features including exposed beams and galleried areas. A brick terrace surrounding most of the clubhouse makes an ideal setting for entertaining.
