High Elms Golf Course

Last Updated:

What we say

A par 71 layout which features many tree-lined fairways and strategically placed greenside bunkers which call for accurate driving and well placed iron shots. With its large variety of mature trees and excellent layout, High Elms is a public course of outstanding character and quality.

Apart from the normal mental challenges of golf, High Elms Golf Course gives you plenty of other things to think of, uphill and downhill lies, sidehill lies, doglegs and the 13th, unlucky for many regular players. It may only be a 224 yard par 3 from the white tees, but out of bounds left and right, uphill and over 3 bunkers to the green, means that although it is stroke index 2 on the mens card, many believe it to be the hardest hole on the course. Do not be put off though, play it as a par 4 and walk away happy.

The 17th from the white tees is also a very challenging hole, drive through a tunnel of trees that only looks a few yards wide, if you get through an open green awaits.

Of the easier holes (is there such a thing!), the 2nd, 3rd and 11th should all be par 4's for the taking but stray from the straight and narrow and a bogey 5 or worse will be waiting.

Your Reviews

  • 2.5 out of 5 Decent course for municipal

    By simsini

    Good course, considering it is owned by Bromley Council. The variety of holes and challenge is good, but you may be slowed down as it gets very busy. Expect many players around you to score double figures on many holes.

  • 3 out of 5 Good test

    By Just a shot away

    A good course to play but choose your tee time wisely as gets really busy as its a pay and play
