We just returned from our 4-day golf tour of Kent and enjoyed it tremendously. St. George's Hill and Royal St.George's are very special and Royal Cinque Ports and Prince's are very decent strips of links. We had a great tour and everything went like clock-work. I will use Your Golf Travel again in future and will recommend it to others. Kind regards,

At 495 yards, the fourth is an intimidating prospect, especially when confronted with the towering bunker inset in the hill in front of the tee. Once on the fairway, the mid-iron approach will have to contend with a deep depression in the front-left quarter of the green. Kent's finest is rightly heralded as one of the jewels in the crown of British golf, and any player fortunate enough to visit will surely understand why St. George's receives such mighty plaudits. The driveway and the clubhouse offer an insight into the austerity and tradition that are inherent to the club, but it is not until you follow the opening fairway into the myriad of towering sand dunes that St. George's reveals its true character. The magical holes are carved through the mounds and hills, offering a fantastically diverse challenge; the bunkers are deep and steeply revetted, the rough is extremely punitive, and the magnificent undulating greens are immaculate.The outward nine is the more picturesque, while the closing stretch is one of the most demanding in world golf, presenting a truly unique challenge. The golf course is combined with rich history and tradition at St. George's, which is one of life's most memorable golfing experiences.
