Blackheath is on the north side of Rochester on Rochester Road across from the Blue Heron Environmental Area.

The course was designed by Kevin Aldrich in the late 1990s, and is a links/heathland style of layout bordered by tall heather or fescue rough. There's frequent sand bunkering along the fairways and greens including numerous pot bunkers with a pond and a stream impacting play on several holes. There's three sets of tees, the championship tees are 6,768 yards, (73.0/137, course/slope), the forward tees, 5,354 yards, 70.8/121, course/slope.

Played 06/11/2015. Tees, fairways and greens were is very good condition. The design is a reasonable attempt to replicate an inland Scottish course but falls a bit short. The conditions are not hard and fast enough. The bunkers, especially the fairway bunkers, are not penal enough. The "heather" is a bit lush and does not always permit finding much less playing one's ball out of it. I am not a big proponent of spending money on the clubhouse or equipment over maintaining the course. Here they went a bit too far. The clubhouse is pretty dumpy. The carts make all kinds of odd noises. The parking lot is an acre of cracked up asphalt and stones. If I lived nearby, I would play here on occasion. Not worth driving more than 20 minutes or so.

I've played this course about ten times this year and it's pretty nice. The only problem I ever had was rate of play. Being so cheap (the most I paid was $30 with a cart for 18), it's crowded all the time. Also, the description above is slightly inaccurate as there are Black, Blue, White and Red tees on the course. Black: 6768 (137); Blue: 6127 (124); White 5354 (119); Red 4572 (119).
