Known throughout the world as the garden of England, Kent has over eighty golf courses in the region, including three Royal courses and three Open Championship courses. Kent was also the first county to have a golf course outside of Scotland when King James I played golf on Blackheath. The course has since moved from the heath to Eltham but still retains its Royal connection and Monika to this day.
Kent and Surrey are also the two counties that I grew up learning the game of golf, I feel blessed that I was able to experience
the many varieties that Kent has to offer from Links to parkland, heathland and over the last 20 years American type courses. Courses steeped in history and those just starting out on their journey will no doubt make their mark over the coming decades.
This section will grow as I start to play, video and review old favourites along with the many new courses that have emerged over the last 20 years. And with most golf courses being about an hour’s drive or train ride from central London. All are accessible to the visiting golfer who wants to see the sights of London with their family but not miss out on being able to play an
Open Championship, Royal Course or one of the many hidden gems the Kent countryside possesses.
