Where2Golf says: 

Chart Hills Golf Club: Set against a picturesque backdrop of pleasant and gently undulating Kent countryside, you will find plenty of golfing challenges in Nick Faldo’s excellent Chart Hills layout. The opening par-5 reveals the scale of the impressive bunkering that abounds on the course, which is laid out on expansive and gently undulating terrain. The par-4 2nd signals the occasional presence of threatening water hazards that will need to be navigated over or around on about half the holes. Generally there is enough space for your tee-shots to be hit with confidence (especially once you get to know the course), although at the short, island-green, par-3 17th, you'll find only a modest-sized water-surrounded green to aim at. With plenty of memorable bunkering along the fairways and guarding many of the spacious greens, Chart Hills lays down an excellent golfing challenge in a fine English rural setting.
