Great location when you actually find it - next time I would take a buggy as it has four holes with quite steep fairways. The four all in front of us where playing holiday golf and had two hackers among them - lost two holes from the other players in front of them - due to the volume of players on the course a Marshall should have been on duty
Reasons to Visit Walmer & Kingsdown Golf Club
Designed by James Braid, one of the most prolific course architects of his era
Less than 30 minutes from Open trio, Royal St George's, Prince's and Royal Cinque Ports
Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Club is considered to be one of the most enjoyable in Kent. Blessed with a wonderful natural landscape of theKent coast, panoramic views and tricky sea breezes Walmer & Kingsdown provides a stern test for golfers of all abilities.
Situated above the English Channel upon the White cliffs of Dover this James Braid designed gem is now over 100 years old having originally been opened by Braid and Harry Vardon in 1909.
Measuring over 6,400 yards off the white tees, the challenge of the course is in the elevation changes offered as well as the way in which 5-time Open Champion Braid was able to challenge each player so well off the tee and with testing approaches into well-protected greens. With panoramic views across the white cliffs of Dover and into the Garden of England that is Kent, a round of golf at Walmer and Kingsdown is sure to be a memorable one.
