Royal St George's 2Royal St Georges was the host course for the 2011 Open Championship. Darren Clarke showed all his craft and guile to hold off the rest of the field to claim his first major after spending more than 20 years on tour. Royal St Georges is as tough a links course as any on the Open rota and this is your chance to get a closer look at the famous course in Sandwich.

Royal St Georges Clubhouse

The Clubhouse at Royal St George’s…unusually quaint for such a prestigious venue.



Royal St Georges 1st Tee

The first tee at Royal St George’s. Open competitors will be praying for a solid start!



Royal St Georges 3rd

The 3rd green. This is the first par 3 the players will face and it will be a tough proposition when the wind is howling.



Royal St Georges 5th

The 5th green at Royal St George’s is the first time players will get a view of the sea. Needless to say they will be hoping to avoid those nasty looking bunkers.



Royal St Georges 6th

The 6th at Royal St George’s sees players heading away from the coast. With a strong crosswind this green appears narrower by the second!



Royal St Georges 12th

As with many of the best links courses in the UK, Royal St George’s is a real beauty in the evening sun.



Royal St Georges 13th

Although the greens appear to be flat, pin placements can leave some devilish putts and some nigh on impossible up and downs.
