A destination with plenty to brag about, Kent has built itself a formidable reputation amongst golfers in the UK as one of the country’s premier destinations. Kent has so many notable designs that it’s impossible to mention them all, however, special attention must be given to the “Holy Trinity” of Royal St George’s, Royal Cinque Ports and Prince’s Golf Club, all of which are either current or past Open Championship venues.
