Not only is the region perfect for a golf tour in England, with its numerous traditional pubs and stellar nightlife, but its variety of courses is a marvel with both quality parkland and links courses dotted within the county.

Kent has so many notable designs that it’s impossible to mention them all, however, some of our hand-picked favourites include the colloquially known “Holy Trinity” of Royal St George’s, Royal Cinque Ports and Prince’s Golf Club, all of which are classic Open venues providing golfers with a great all-round challenge. Between the three venues, they have hosted an unbelievable 17 Open Championships.

The great golf in Kent isn't limited to these three through, with an array of links and parkland courses to suit all tastes. Littlestone, Walmer & Kingsdown, Broome Park, North Foreland and The London Club.

From resorts to golf hotels, find your perfect base

Getting the most out of your golf holiday usually starts with finding the right place to stay and Kent offers a wide array of hotels and resorts for every style and budget. We recommend staying at the luxurious lodges at Prince's if you’re playing the on-site golf course. Other outstanding stay & play resorts include Tudor Park Country Club and Canterbury's Cave Hotel & Golf Resort.

If you’re looking to play the 'Holy Trinity' then there are a few fantastic hotels to choose from including The Bell Hotel, located in the historic town of Sandwich. You also have the option of staying near Ramsgate at Pegwell Bay Hotel 3* or in Deal at the Royal Hotel, another superb 3* hotel.
