Princeʼs G.C

Princeʼs G.C.

Prince's Golf Club is one of Kent's finest, offering 27 holes of outstanding championship links golf in an idyllic coastal setting. Located near the quaint town of Sandwich, and neighbouring two courses of equitable stature and excellence, golfers can revel in the golf experience that Prince's provides.

The course, established in 1906, is no stranger to Championship pedigree - as 1932 Open Championship hosts (won by Gene Sarazen) and more recently, Final Open Qualifying and The R&A Women's Amateur Championship venue. Recent development under the stewardship of McKenzie & Ebert saw a reimagination of the links, incorporating pre-war charm and tradition with the modern ambience and aesthetics of the club - which has been enjoyed by some of the world's most elite golfers.

Between the Shore, Dunes and Himalayas nines, the 27 holes at Prince's capture the essence of links golf through their own lens - with natural sandscrapes, risk-and-reward tee shots and challenging green undulations all offering a superb golfing experience. Coupled with the extensive short game facilities located conveniently between all three loops, and a Toptracer technology-driven grass covered range, the club presents a setting that every golfer can enjoy.

The onsite accommodation located at the entrance to the club boasts 38 bedrooms across The Lodge and two adjacent apartment blocks; accommodating everyone looking for the perfect stay next to all the action. With views over the links, the beautiful Kent coastline, and neighbouring Royal St. George's, it is a great spot for unwinding after golf or preparing for a day on the course.

Visiting the area in which The Hagen 54 sits should be on the bucket list of any avid golfer. Less than two hours from central London, and with excellent rail connections, finding a weekend away or a short trip to the area is no doubt set to provide a golfing experience unmatched anywhere else in the country.

I feel that rather than signature holes and face-value fun, the three loops of nine have real strength in depth and offer a golfing challenge equal to many of our finest links.
