I played Littlestone as a guest on Friday afternoon, as part of a group from Thorndon Park Golf Club in Essex, and wanted to praise the welcome and atmosphere of the club.Your two female bar staff were extremely friendly and helpful, your starter a great, convivial character and several members proactively came to speak to our small group. A superb instance of a club genuinely welcoming all those with an interest in golf, and an example for supposedly 'regal' clubs along the Kent coast to follow. And an enjoyable and challenging course too.

With best wishes for the future.

I have to say sorry on my behalf, as we played with you on the 8 April and I haven’t thanked you for the day on behalf of the society.We all had a great days golf, possibly the best in the past year, the course was very good and the assistance from the Pro Shop excellent. A special thank you to the caterers for a great job once again we all look forward to our day with you at Littlestone Warren.

Please pass on my thanks to all.

Best regards

We most certainly did enjoy our day at Littlestone GC – what isn’t there to enjoy! Excellent course, sunny weather (supported by a stiff breeze to keep you honest), excellent company, good food, my favourite beer (Harveys) –oh, and I came 3rd! Need I say more?

Please thank Andrew and the bar/catering team for looking after us so well. Pie & Strawberries were just the ticket

On behalf of the KCLGA, I would very much thank Littlestone golf club for allowing us to play the above match yesterday.
All the girls really enjoyed the experience, in tough windy conditions. The course was in superb condition, especially the greens and many of the matches went down to the final holes. The club house hospitality was also excellent and the food delicious.
Please thank all the staff involved for making the day such a success
Kind regards

It was my pleasure to visit the Club today, and WOW! 
It was wonderful to see the place thriving with golfers everywhere filling both courses and the bar doing a lively trade. 
You are all to be congratulated on the superb job you are each doing to bring the venerable old lady into the 21st century.
It is a great delight for us older folk to see the Littlestone we love so well alive and healthy.

We really enjoyed our golf at Littlestone and the reception and welcoming we got at the club was second to none. The service in the bar and pro shop was very good. We are not that used to playing links golf and this is what you get in it´s purest form at Littlestone – fantastic! We found the course challenging and a stiff breeze (at least we thought it was…) made it even more difficult - we loved every moment of it. The course itself was in very good condition with quick greens.

Dear Toni,
Obviously with our victory on Friday, the team will view the Littlestone week warmly.
However what ever the position in the field, nothing is possible without the selfless work of the office and volunteers.Plus the green staff for the excellent quality of the course ( remarked upon by all participants).Please pass on our teams warm thank you's to everyone involved, my team mates also commented on what a warm and friendly club Littlestone was.

Can I just thank you and everyone at your delightful club for making us so welcome during your open week We spent two excellent days with you and everyone from staff to members were so friendly. The course was in excellent condition and if we could have handled the wind, who know how we would have done. 

We look forward hopefully to joining you in 2017.

I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our viist to Littlestone on Sunday. We had already played at Royal Cinque Ports and Princes and the overwhelming view was that Littlestone ranked above these.The condition and presentation of the course was excellent and the welcome in the clubhouse was much appreciated.Luckily the weather cleared just as we teed off but the course still provided a very stern test of golf.

Many thanks again to everyone at Littlestone for making our visit so successful.
Best wishes

Please can you tell the green keeper that the greens yesterday are the best I have played on all year, including Troon two weeks ago.
 Your record remains intact!
 Best wishes,

without doubt the friendliest club I've visited (though Royal Dornoch is a very close 2nd). Beautiful links course and like all courses presumably very different depending on the wind. Good mix of long and short par 4's and 3's, great practice facility. Much more reasonably priced than the other links courses around the kent coast. A real gem

Dear Sarah, 
I must email you to thank Littlestone for hosting our August meeting yesterday. I received nothing but compliments about the course, the bar and catering staff and the way we were looked after.Please pass on our thanks to all the staff who were so polite and helpful from the moment I arrived at 6.45am to the moment we all left in the early evening.I must mention Adrian who was our point of contact on arrival and was very helpful and understanding with the alterations and amendments that I received over the weekend. The last time we visited Littlestone was 17 years ago when Ernie Maidment was our Captain and a member at your club and were delighted when we were allowed to revisit you yesterday. Please pass on our thanks to your Board and hopefully we will have the pleasure of revisiting Littlestone for another Members meeting in the years ahead.

Kind regards

  • Just a note to thank everyone for their organisation of the open week. I took part for a couple of days for the first time ever and now quite understand why everyone loves taking part! 

  •   just wanted to say a huge thank you for Sunday. All players had a fantastic time and somehow we all managed to stay dry throughout the afternoon. The course and facilities were absolutely great and I will definitely be coming back to Littlestone in the future.

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to play at Littlestone last week. It has been a real treat and I can only say this is one great track. I have rarely experienced a course where I could remember almost every hole after the very first time going around - a clear sign of the high quality of the layout. I think I could play Littlestone every day and it would never become bland.

I will certainly recommend Littlestone to our readers as one of the finest places to play in Southern England. It may take a while to get the article out as we unsually have to cover many current events during the peak season but I will send you a PDF file as soon as we have it published.

Wishing you a sunny and successful summer!

Best regards

Peter Hodel
