Venue: Open Championship

Royal St Georges

Royal St Georges is quite simply one of the finest and toughest tests of golf in the UK. The course has held the Open on many occasions with past winners including Greg Norman and Sandy Lyle.

It is a classic links with rolling fairways, dunes waiting to gobble the ball up and smooth firm greens. There are plenty of pot bunkers lying in wait and just ask Thomas Bjorn how difficult it is to get out of them – the leading Danish player took three to get out of the greenside bunker at 16 on his way to throwing away a four-shot lead in the final round of the 2003 Open Championship.

Britain’s finest course.” – Gene Sarazen

Princes Golf Club is one of the finest tests of links golf in the UK. It boasts three nines - the Shore, Dunes and Himalayas – with the combination of the Shore and Dunes usually seen as the championship 18. A stiff sea breeze almost always adds to the challenge here, but if you’re game’s not up to the test you can always just take in the stunning views over Sandwich Bay to the white cliffs of Ramsgate.

The course held the Open Championship in 1932, when it was won by the great Gene Sarazen, and the first two nines are still used for qualifying for the Open at St Georges.

Littlestone Golf Club

Founded in 1888, Littlestone is a Championship Links Course laid out on the natural undulating land between the famous Romney Marsh and the English Channel in the South East corner of Kent. The coastline enjoys a unique micro-climate which makes it one of the driest places in Britain. The course is presented in superb condition throughout the year and temporary tees and greens are unheard of.

The Club is proud of being chosen as a Final Qualifying venue for the 2011 Open and a very recent report by the R & A Agronomist states that the greens at Littlestone are 'magnificent and.. some of the best examples of firm, true and well paced putting greens in the UK'.

Littlestone Golf Club is a traditional two-ball club with four-ball play by visitors on Wednesdays. All Visitors are Members for the day and as such can play from the Medal Tees, enjoy the exceptional practice facilities and the relaxed, friendly ambience of the Clubhouse.

Rye Golf Club

Rye Golf Club

Rye Golf Club is a traditional seaside golf club and links golf course. Many believe the Old Course at Rye to be one of the most eye-catching, memorable and challenging links courses in the country.

The par fours - long, blind, dog-legs, you name it - are exceptional while the par threes are of the best quality - you need pinpoint accuracy to hold the greens. Indeed, it is often said of Rye that the most difficult shots are the second shots to the par 3 holes!

The experience of playing Rye is the key, and Golf World Magazine ranks it 25th in the World based on the whole experience.

Whether playing on the fast fairways and true greens on an idyllic summer's day, or the even faster winter time greens when putts barely stop downwind and down slope, the anticipation of what the next shot may bring is never missing!
