North Foreland Golf Club is a cliff-top downland golf course that provides golfers with a pure and unadulterated dose of high-quality seaside golf.
Situated in Broadstairs, within easy reach of Margate and the picturesque Botany Bay, a round of golf at North Foreland is well recommended for anyone visiting this part of Kent for their next golf break.
Having welcomed golfers for over a 100 years since it's creation in 1903, North Foreland is a great year-round golfing experience with fast-running fairways and greens along with coastal views that are amongst the best in England.
With the likes of Open Championship hosts, Royal St George's, Royal Cinque Ports and Prince's Golf Club within 30 minutes drive, North Foreland can provide part of a formidable golf tour, sure to test all handicaps.
It's fair to say this course will test every department of your game - the sea breezes constantly challenge your shot-making and your distance control. This exposed course is always in great condition, though, with greens that provide testing putts over fast running surfaces with subtle slopes. The rough is tough but fair, and there are great coastal views to enjoy.
North Foreland Golf Club is situated on the Kent coast at the point where the English Channel becomes the North Sea - and is lucky enough to have a view of the sea from every tee and green. It is not a proper links even though it's very links-like in appearance and feel. Unlike seaside courses that run through dunes, North Foreland is chalk-based and, as a result, it drains exceptionally well and is playable all year round.
The course is the work of the renowned architects Herbert Fowler and Tom Simpson, and was completed before World War 1 after they were asked to extend the original nine holes. Such is the quality of the layout, the R&A uses North Foreland as a qualifying course when the Open Championship is held just up the coast at Royal St George's in Sandwich.
In addition to the main course, North Foreland can also boast one of the best 18-hole par-3 courses in the country. The course is well established having been constructed in 1926, and provides an ideal introductory round for visitors, as well as offering plenty of challenges for the more experienced golfer.
The newly constructed balcony extension adjoining the bar provides panoramic views across the course and the English Channel, while the dining area is not only airy and very spacious, it serves great food too.
A great layout and a fair test of golf. Some lovely par 3s on the front down by the sea. Really enjoyed the course and will be back.
I played my best round of the weekend on this course. As we turned up in the car park the views of the golf course and the sea is the first thing you see and it looks fantastic. You need to be straight off the tee, because the rough was pretty thick in areas. The clubhouse bar looks over the back 9 and is a great place to have a drink afterwards.
