What the club says: The Deal course is traditionally laid out on a narrow stretch of land extending to Sandwich Bay, and the natural links terrain has been subtly used to provide a wide variety of challenges. On almost every hole there is an abundance of large sand dunes which establishes the undulating character of the course and makes it unique. Unlike most other courses the fairways are just as undulating and it is seldom that a completely flat stance can be obtained other than on the tees. As with all traditional seaside links, the wind is a major factor which has to be taken into account when deciding on club and shot selection.

Best Course I've ever played!

Beautiful traditional links course on the South East Coast of the UK. Steeped in history, this former Open Venue was my chosen location for a birthday treat!

Not sure that the course justifies the £185 green fee but it was most definitely in amazing condition! They probably price it high to protect the course and offer value for money against it's next door neighbour (Royal St Georges).

The driving range was a treat to play off grass rather than mats but the fact that you had to pay for the balls left a bitter taste after shelling out for the green fee! The balls weren't great but at least there was somewhere to warm up.

The Pro shop is very well stocked with lots of products with the club logo for souvenirs.

The half way house was great with good food and drink!

The course itself is lovely perfectly manicured fairways and greens with easily playable whispy rough winding its way along the classic track. Go any further in though and you'll be looking for your ball for hours in deep grass! It honestly is the best kept course I've every played.

If you are like me and love a Links Challenge, this is one of the very best! Treat yourself and get caddy unless you have GPS because there are a few blind(ish) tee shots to hit and hope!

a great experience to play a classic links course. Staff in the clubhouse were great, halfway house a little rude. Course was great, want to come back. Great day.

Comfortably belongs in UKs finest

Never disappoints, often immaculate, always aesthetically beautiful whilst presenting a demanding, technical challenge. Just a pleasure from start to finish.

Wonderful experience

This course is a links classic and in my view at least the equal of its prestigious Open-hosting next door neighbour. In excellent condition despite recent irrigation work it is a wonderful challenge and the last six holes into the wind one of UK golf's great experiences. The mandatory half way house stop for liquid and solid sustenance is to be looked forward too. Thankfully proud of its traditions, the atmosphere on the course and in the clubhouse is relaxed without dropping standards. To those who love links and tradition, play here.

overdue entry to world's best 100

Reflecting on the ongoing significant investment, attention to detail and striving to improve a genuinely world class course the links at Deal goes from strength to strength. It has improved measurably every year in the 10 that I have been playing it, which is a very significant achievement when you start with one of the best courses in the country. New practice facilities are also on a par with the course.

Proper stuff

Quintessential links golf. Proper clubhouse fare. A wonderful half-way house with splendid food. For the golf it’s a proper course with a tough
finishing stretch from the moment that one turns for home at the 12th. Nicely expensive for visitors to keep everything in good order. The only blot would be the practice facility with it a touch on the short side at a shade over 350 yards in length - makes it a tad cramped for some chaps.
