This used to be a favourite course off mine but after playing yesterday, I will not play again...
Greens were length of fairways, fairways length of semi rough, semi rough length of rough and rough forget it!!!!
There was people on the course in jeans and track suit bottoms and to top it all groups driving buggies on the tees and groups of 5-6 players....
Very Very disappointing

Cray & Ruxley
Played both courses last weekend. They are both different and in their own way challenging.
Greens, bunkers and tees all in good condition and pins well placed. Excellent bar and restaurant facilities and the staff, including the pro staff were all very friendly and helpful and other visitors/members very inclusive and welcoming. Great venue for all levels/standard of players. Thoroughly recommended.

Played Cray Valley on Sunday 11th Jan 15 worst greens I have ever played on, the course should have been closed or green fees reduced as they charged £29.00 for the privilege with no temp greens. Check 9th & 18th greens before playing green fees obsolete rip off.

After writing a poor review I was contacted by the Cluster Manager for this course and offered a free 4 ball to see if improvements had been made.
I was pleasantly surprised, the greens were very good and the pace seemed constant on all of them. Buggies were available this time and although the bunkers and tee boxes still need some work on them the pin placements on all of the greens were much better.
I still think the course would benefit from more on course management as we had 2 instances of people cutting in which slowed our round but apart from that it was a much better experience.

Played Cray last weekend afternoon. Been playing the course for years as it is local and was good value. New management ! £29 for a afternoon Saturday round. No buggies No Rakes in any bunkers pin positions must have been placed by the kids wheel spinning around the course on motorbikes as two or three placements would have been a challenge for tiger ! 3 paces on cup on a 30 degree angle .. Not an even tee you are playing up and down. Cray was always a no thrills no spills pay and play public course. But I can now understand why it is empty !! Before playing try Birchwood or Chelsfield.

Please do not waste your £29 on this course. Played it yesterday and was extremely disappointed. No thought was given to pin placements and on the 14th the pin was actually placed 8 inches from the ridge that runs across the green making it virtually impossible. On 4 other holes the pins were placed on slopes when there were perfectly good flat spots on the green. The tee boxes are all uneven and no thought had been given to their placement. I understand the need to rotate pins and tee boxes but these were ridiculous. At one point a motor bike came across the 14th tee with 3 kids on it and not once did I see a Marshall on the course yet some guy flogging drinks appeared 4 times. Hardly any of the green side bunkers had rakes in them so you can imagine the state of the bunkers and on the 6th greenside bunker there was more weeds than sand. The staff were friendly enough but there were no buggies available despite being told on the phone before we booked that the course was not busy. I have been playing here for 20 years and this is the worse value for money experience I have ever had at this course. £29 for pay and play is expensive.

i started of learning golf on the ruxley 8 hole which was great to start out and learn my short game, great little 8 hole that my mrs and 8 yr old son now plays on. i steped up on ruxleys 18 hole course which i found to be very good but the back 9 holes were very long,.
Cray valley 9 hole was next for me which i enjoyed plenty with a mixture of long and short holes, and the course was looked after very well.
cray valley's 18 hole course is just a pleasure to play on, greens in tip top condition and with a great layout, i love this course. the staff at cray valley welcomed me to their club, all the members that ive meet so far have been diamonds and are a big part why i keep going back.
if yr looking to just play or join a golf club then its got to be Cray Valley.
