Kent - Royal St George's Golf Club

Play a round at England's finest golf course

A memorable and historically significant Championship links course measuring 7204 yards from the back tees.

Founded in 1887 and intended by its founder, Dr William Laidlaw Purves, to be a rival to St Andrew’s in the South of England, St George’s is consistently ranked amongst the leading courses in the world and is considered to be the best course in England.

Flowing seamlessly through the sandy dunes of Sandwich Bay, the links course at Royal St George’s is a real masterpiece of design. There are few sights more satisfying than taking a moment to gaze out over sand dunes bathed in golden sunlight, with the cresting waves of Pegwell Bay breaking on the shore beyond.

The Club plays a significant part in the history of golf, as it was here in 1894, that the Open Championship was played outside Scotland for the very first time. In all there have been 15 Open Championships played at St George’s, more than any course outside of Scotland. Past winners here include Darren Clarke, Greg Norman, Sandy Lyle and Walter Hagen, so you'll be following in the footsteps of some serious players as you walk this fast-running course.

The prestige and illustrious history of this club has cemented it on to the bucket list for golfers all over the world.

Visitors who would like to play here have to prove a handicap index of 18.4 or less.
