Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club

Twice an Open Championship venue, having hosted the world's best tournament in 1909 and 1920, Deal, which is formally known as Royal Cinque Ports, is as rugged as it is charming. The course's unique character results primarily from the monumental sand dunes that rise imposingly alongside the pristine fairways, where a level lie is rarely assured. 

A typical Cinque Ports experience is to have two very contrasting loops of nine holes. The first nine often plays into the wind (except the first hole which runs in the same direction) meaning many of the shots on your handicap will be lost before you head back down wind to play the final nine. The closing holes 7 holes include 3 very testing par 4's all around 450 yards, whilst many scorecards have come undone playing the 221 yard par-3 14th which has three bunkers waiting for any shot right of the green while anything short will meander its way left of the putting surface, anyone making a par here will walk off with a smile on their face!

Deal has long been widely acclaimed, culminating with an appearance within Golf World's top 100 courses worldwide. There are two fundamentals for good scoring here: firstly, avoiding the rough, which is extremely penal during the summer months, is essential, and the subsequent challenge is to master the legendary greens, which are among the largest and fastest in England.

While Royal Cinque Ports may not be on the modern era Open Championship rotation, it remains a firm favourite with seaside golf enthusiasts, and is a sure highlight of any golf tour on the Kent coast.

I am from the San Francisco Bay Area, and I wanted to experience a links course. This course definitely provided that experience. I was expecting a challenging course but underestimated the wind as a factor

True links course in every sense
If the wind is blowing then take it easy and give it respect. A wonderful course that is a real challenge for any golfer of any handicap. Rolling fairways, huge bunkers and challenging rough makes for a really enjoyable test. The greens are in great shape and the traditional rules of the clubhouse add to the overall experience.

Tough test but very fair
One of the best venues I've played. Friendly and welcoming as well as being a proper championship links course. Some very testing par 4's, in particular 17 and 18 which were playing straight into the wind. We felt Cinque Ports was quite a bit different to the other courses we played on the Kent Tour and one we'd really like to play again.
