Golf courses reopening in Kent

Golfers, the day you’ve been waiting for has nearly arrived! On 29th March, golf courses across England will be reopening their doors and welcoming you back to the greens. After months of our only exercise being a couple of YouTube workouts and a stroll around the park, we can’t wait to stretch our legs and dust off our clubs (and let’s face it, our skills) at some of Kent’s best golf courses. Ready to get back into the swing of things? Take a look at some of our favourite clubs that will be reopening very soon!

Each course will have their own clear Covid-19 guidelines in place for reopening and will require pre-booking, so please always double check their websites before visiting. 

Prince’s Golf Club

Resting on the beautiful Sandwich Bay, the Championship links course of Prince’s has three fantastic courses to choose from, including the Shore, the Dunes and the Himalayas. While here you can expect superb playing surfaces and courses which each have their own characteristics, while showing the incredible amount of work that has gone into redeveloping them over the last few years. It’s no surprise then that this Kent favourite is host of the Local Final Qualifying for The Open Championship from 2018 to 2022. Fancy a round? Prince’s will be offering a limited number of tee times to visitors, so be sure to book in quick by emailing office@princesgolfclub.co.uk.

Royal St George’s

As the host of the 149th Open in July this year, this course really needs no introduction! Founded more than 100 years ago, this links course has hosted 14 Open Championships in its time, so it goes without saying that it’s one of the jewels in Kent’s crown. While tee times are limited, visitors can still book to play in the months leading up to the 149th Open and play at the very club where history will be made.

London Golf Club

If you’re a member of London Golf Club, their two tournament golf courses will be reopening to members and their visitors from the end of the month, offering 36 holes of Jack Nicklaus designed championship golf. If you’re not a member, keep an eye on their social media channels for visitor tee times, as this sensational club, set in 700 acres of Kent countryside, is not to be missed.   

Believe it or not, this is really just a taste of Kent’s courses, for even more clubs to add to your list this spring and summer, be sure to take a look at the Golf in Kent website.
