North Foreland Golf Club
Golf Club Overview
Situated on the picturesque Kent coast in Broadstairs, the 36-hole venue is one of the most highly regarded seaside golf courses in the county. The club has been host to Final Open Qualifying and with breath-taking clifftop views, where you can see the sea from every tee you can understand why. It is very links-like in appearance and feel but unlike seaside links courses that run through dunes, North Foreland is a clifftop, chalk-based course and, as a result, it drains exceptionally well and is playable all year round.
North Foreland Golf Club boasts two exceptional year-round golf courses – the Main Course and the Northcliffe Course. The courses are the work of the renowned architects Herbert Fowler and Tom Simpson with the courses being completed before World War 1 after they were asked to extend the original nine holes. Fowler's creations include Aberdovey, The Berkshire (Red and Blue Golf Courses), Walton Heath (New and Old Golf Courses) and even Los Angeles Country Club which is a regular amongst the World's Top 100 Golf Courses.
Renowned for its fast-running fairways and greens, along with coastal views that are amongst the best in England, the 6,436-yard, par-71 Main Course is a fantastic test for all golfers – with the open front nine holes being contrasted nicely with the tighter back nine and a mixture of strategically-placed bunkers and broad fairways.
The Northcliffe Course provides the opportunity for players to hone their short game on holes that vary in distance from 50 to 140 yards and the club is also home to excellent practice facilities and tennis courts.
North Foreland’s aim is to treat every visitor who comes to experience the first-class golf courses with professional hospitality as a future member of the club. The delightful Lighthouse Brasserie and Bar offer sumptuous food and drink with stunning views of the sea and coastline.
Situated in Broadstairs, within easy reach of Margate and the picturesque Botany Bay. Broadstairs is known as the ‘Jewell in Thanet’s crown’, a seaside town with connections to the literary world of Charles Dickens.
With the likes of Open Championship hosts, Royal St George's, Royal Cinque Ports and Prince's Golf Club within 30 minutes’ drive, North Foreland can provide part of a formidable golf tour, sure to test all handicaps
