Although Kent is famous for cobnuts, the name Cobtree probably comes from the Anglo-Saxon word cop, meaning summit. You’ll certainly enjoy the views from the golf course.
The course is part of the Cobtree Manor estate, which was left to the public by Sir Garrard Tyrwhitt-Drake and was once home to Maidstone Zoo. This was Tyrwhitt-Drake’s private animal collection, and included tigers, wolves, and kangaroos.
The land has been farmed since prehistoric times. In the 16th century it was owned by politician and poet Sir Thomas Wyatt. William Spong, who lived there in the 1830s, is thought to be the model for Mr Wardle in Charles Dickens’s The Pickwick Papers.
