The Nick Olson Golf Academy is based at Chart Hills Golf Club. Chart Hills is situated in the heart of the Garden of England, and is an award winning 7132yd championship course designed by Sir Nick Faldo and opened in 1993.

Chart Hills has received countless accolades since its opening. It has previously been awarded a place in the Rolex Top 1000 Courses in the World, as well as in the top 100 courses in the UK and Ireland within several renowned golfing journals. 

Sitting in the High Weald of Kent, the course and clubhouse are easily accessible from major routes into the county and Ashford International Station is just a 20 minute drive away.


The practice facility has a superb 300 yard driving range with grass tee, and separate Academy tee which is reserved exclusively for coaching and custom fitting. We also have a portable range cover, The Golf Tent, which protects against those showery days.

The short game area consists of a USGA construction bent grass dedicated chipping green with large practice bunker. The chipping green is the same size and surface quality as out on the course. Also located next to the chipping green are three pitching greens surrounded by fairway, and a pitching tee deck. This area is due for a refurbishment early 2020 to improve the green surfaces and surrounds.

The large putting green is also of the same high quality USGA construction bent grass, with varying slopes to enable practice putts of all lengths and breaks.


New for December 2020, a fantastic indoor GolfZon simulator in the Academy Building at Chart Hills Golf Club. The simulator has over 100 courses and a fantastic HD range. For coaching sessions TrackMan is also running alongside this to capture all the players club data allowing full technique analysis and comprehensive custom fitting. Book in now to experience this high quality environment in the warm and dry.
