What the club says: Royal St George’s is one of the world’s great courses. Having hosted Opens, PGA and Amateur Championships and Walker and Curtis Cups, it has been witness to more golfing history than any other in England. It was also the setting, in the guise of Royal St Mark’s, of golf’s most famous fictional match, the contest between James Bond and Goldfinger.

Designed by William Laidlaw Purves in 1887, it has constantly evolved to pose a tough test for championship and more modest players alike. In common with many links, it is characterised by humps and swales, dunes and wild rough, fast-running fairways and deep bunkers.

Golfs garden of Eden
A true test of golf,beautiful layout to forget the real world and walk in the footsteps of the greats of this wonderful game.
My favourite course by a country mile the blind shots punishing bunkers and sloping greens it's heaven.
Wonderful wonderful venue

Overhyped
Clubhouse and facilities much smaller and less inspiring than anticipated. Jacket and tie requirement after 11am is a little pretentious for such a venue. Course was immaculate and greens very good but overall it lacks great golf holes. Bucket list course but there are much better courses and venues. Not a patch on Turnberry for example

Hugely Enjoyable
Only managed to get 9 holes played the previous week due to horrendous weather. Good to experience a true links course at its worst (weather). The club were kind enough to allow us to re-book and the conditions couldn't have been more different. Bright sunshine/no wind and a true pleasure to play the course. On both occasions found the staff to be most welcoming and friendly. Superb.

Tough course and you have to plot your way round. Greens were very good. Not a very welcoming Club.

Always a great experience here! Great fun to walk in the footsteps of so many golfing legends.

Pro shop and caddymaster very friendly and helpful. Everything in the clubhouse is very traditional - In this respect RSG doesn't do modern so probably best not to expect it to avoid disappointment. There are plenty of good places in Sandwich for food and drink if you forget your collar and tie anyway.

Excellent day out and worth paying to do at least once in a lifetime! Or twice...

WOW, what a course. We was lucky to get on thanks to a friend and we enjoyed every second of this amazing track. Caddies we're pretty good as well.
