Golf in EnglandAlthough many golf tourists flock to Scotland and Ireland, England does have some of the best golf courses in the world and is often host to major golf tournaments, like the European Tour. Also many World Golf Championships are played in England and of course a few golf courses are hosts for The Open Championship, the British Major. In England you will find a wide variety of golf courses, from challenging links courses to picturesque park golf courses. Golf has quite a long history in England. According to Blackheath Golf Club it was formally instituted in 1608, but Royal North Devon was formed in 1864 and remains the oldest course in England still playing along its original fairways. Several famous English golf clubs are Royal St. Georges, Royal Birkdale, Sunningdale, Swinley Forest, Woodhall Spa and Woburn. But England has over 1,800 golf courses to choose from, most of them are really worth a visit! Some hotspots in England for a golftrip are the coast of Kent, the coast running from Blackpool to Liverpool, the area south west of London (Ascot and Woking), the Cornwall coast and the area near Bournemouth and Poole. From its legendary landmarks and bustling cities to its rolling emerald hills, England is an unmissable country of contrasts. London is a must when visiting England, but if you love art make sure to visit Liverpool’s dynamic art scene. If you are more into nature, then Cornwall’s sun-drenched beaches, Kent's fruit-growing orchards or the mysterious Stonehenge are definitely worth a visit. Getting to England is not a real problem. London has six major airports: London City, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, London Luton, London Stansted and London Southend. Other large airports in England are Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Newcastle. And since 1994 you can also travel to England via the Channel Tunnel.

Sunningdale Golf Club
Where do I start? First of all I'm a great fan of Harry Colt courses, the one I play the most is De Pan in Utrecht, The Netherlands that course is squeezed into about 50 hectares, the courses at Sunningdale absolutely not. Maybe this is one of the most impressive features of this club, the huge amount of space and quiteness these courses are situated. The design of the Ne…

Centurion Club
We visited Centurion just 10 days before the Sixes were held there so they were in full preparation of this event and we were lucky to play hole 5-14. We got shuttled out there in a Landrover with fine rental clubs and by a very friendly staff member. The 5th is a nice par 3 in the more sheltered part of the course. Later on you go more in the open. Centurion is a relat…

Wentworth Golf Club
I was itching to visit Wentworth given the fairly new ownership. It’s now invite only and very exclusive. They have done a great job on the £13m clubhouse refit to ensure the club history is not forgotten. The property is quite magical and a totally different atmosphere from when you would visit for the PGA Championship to watch the pros. We played the East course whi…

Prince's Golf Club
Een perfect baan voor een uitstap in de winter. Deze baan ligt er zeer goed bij in deze periode en je kan er met verblijf in het hotel een pakket krijgen aan een zeer scherpe prijs. Baan zelf is een linksbaan zoals ze hoort te zijn, strategische bunkers en hoofdzakelijk veel wind. Greens rollen lekker!
