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.

You pay for the name.

It's expensive, lets start there, you pay a premium for the name and the open rota status. If you look past the price, the course is fun to play and in generally good condition. The greens had recently been aerated and we didn't get told until we got there, which was disappointing. It's a classic stuffy UK club that gives you that slight imposter syndrome, jackets in club house, long socks etc. I personally came away wanting more from the experience. I've since played at Prince's next door and had a much more satisfying day and at less than half the price. It's hard to not recommend playing an open rota course but don't expect too much more.

Brilliant

I played it 4 weeks before The Open so pretty much as the professionals would. Brilliant to be able to watch The Open tv coverage knowing the course and comparing to how I played it.

Plastic Mats!

Unfortunately up until the Open next Year, you have to play off Mats on the Fairway & 1st cut.
Wouldn't play until after Open

Superb

Played RSG on a beautiful day in early September. The wind was about 15mph. I started brilliantly, only 3 over after 10. It went down hill a bit after that as I started driving badly. The course is great especially the front nine. Holes 2 to 8 are the most memorable. 4 is iconic, with the massive bunker you drive over and 5 has those mountainous sand dunes to go over for you second shot. The changing rooms are nice but I found the bar a bit underwhelming. Still we enjoyed a couple of masterbrews outside on the terrace - very nice.

The Open venue for 2020

Just phenomenal, this course is fantastic, a real challenge, particularly when the wind blows.
The championship tees add plenty of length and a different outlook to most of the holes.
Thoroughly enjoyed this majestic course and highly recommend to play it, if you get you the chance.

Great Course - stuck in ancient times

This is an amazing links course host to next years Open. Everything about the course lived up to expectations. However, how archaic to put a group of 150 golfers crammed into the tiny Snack Bar after finishing the round rather than remove the stuffy requirement of Jacket and Tie in the main Lounge (obviously empty). This is not the way forward.

Deserved No1

Not much I can add to what has already been said. Simply wonderful.
Fully-deserving if its ranking as England?s No1. Every hole an experience and adventure..especially some of the routes I took!
A demanding but fair test where good shots can be rewarded, if you avoid the bunkers! A complete privilege to play.

Not what I expected

This course is rated no.1 in the country & held several Major championships. Now don't get me wrong it's a very nice course & full of history. Just didn't live up to the hype. Played in the winter in the freezing cold 40mph wind which made it tough. Not impossible though & think on a summers day it could be got at. Needed a caddy which helped. Just not quite the picturesque scene I had hoped for. It's on the coast but can barely see the seaside. Bear in mind it's very expensive. I've played a lot better courses.
