Golf in Kent

Kent is a county in South East England and is famous for its white chalk cliffs. Since the Channel Tunnel was finished, it is now also connected to the French department of Pas-de-Calais. Because of its relative abundance of fruit-growing orchards and hop gardens, Kent is also known as "The Garden of England". Its direct connection with Continental Europe through the Channel Tunnel, has made Kent quite a popular golf destination for golfers from France, Germany and the Benelux.

Golf in Kent
Kent also has a very rich history when it comes to golf. There are many golf clubs in Kent, some of which have hosted multiple Open Championships. Royal St George’s, Royal Cinque Ports and Prince’s Golf Club, located in Sandwich and Deal, are considered as some of the leading links golf courses in the world. Well-known parkland courses in Kent are London Golf Club and Knole Park. Kent's links courses are located on the East coast, so if you love to play links courses it's best to head to the area between Ramsgate and Dover. Another hotspot for golf in Kent is the area around Otford. There you will find golf courses like London Golf Club, Knole Park, Wildernesse and Chart Hills. Other interesting highlights in Kent - when you want a break from golf - are Canterbury Cathedral, Hever Castle, the historic dockyard Chatham and of course Chartwell, home of world’s most iconic leaders, Sir Winston Churchill. Kent is less than an hour from London by train and with easy access to the mainland of Europe, it's easy to break out of the day-to-day routine and explore what Kent has to offer.

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!
