Club History, Hythe Golf Club

Sene Valley Golf Club, Hythe

Founded in 1894, was a full 18 Hole Course situated on the hills behind Hythe. It was a downland course built on green sand with natural hazards of spinneys, ponds, ravines and sand quarries and blessed with magnificent views over the channel, the North Downs and Romney Marsh. When formed the club was so popular it had a mixed membership of 500. It was also a very wealthy club with the likes of Sir Edward Sassoon, Lord Wakefield and Baron D’Erlanger amongst its members.

The course which adjoined Shornecliffe Army Camp was requisitioned by the Army in both wars and received significant damage in the second, to such an extent that there was no driving force at the end of the war to restore it. As a result, the club died, the course was subsequently used for grazing sheep until acquired by the Radnor Estate in 1965
