The Golf Courses You Must Play in Kent

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 16 Jul 2021 | Comments

The majestic county of Kent has long been known as The Garden of England and is renowned for its beauty and scenery, but there is also a rich heritage for golfers to enjoy. 

Famously, Royal St George's became the first English venue to host The Open Championship in 1894, and the game's oldest major has returned on numerous occasions, including for the 149th edition in 2021. Additionally, nearby Royal Cinque Ports (1909/1920) and Prince's Golf Club (1932) have each crowned the Champion Golfer of the Year, making this region a hotbed for many an iconic moment in the sport.

However, there is more to Kent than just these revered layouts, as the Golfshake Community have discovered through the years. Studying their reviews submitted into the Golfshake Course Section, we have identified just 20 of the best (and there are many more) courses to consider playing on a visit to Kent, showcasing a variety of designs and prices.

There's never been a more appropriate time to plan your next golf trip to Kent!
