Prince’s Golf Club

England, SE England, SE Coast, Kent
5.7 (6)
Course Opened: 1948

In Volume 1 of The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses, Tom Doak published that.

“The contours of the ground at Prince’s are some of the most unique links terrain I’ve seen; it feels like an extension of the sea as the land continues the frequency of low, rolling waves, totally unlike Royal St. George’s which is just over the fence. However, I have a pet peeve about 27-hole courses – nobody knows which 18 to play, and sometimes they won’t let you play the best combination – and so it is still unfathomable to me that they chose to expand to 27 holes instead of restoring the pre-war layout, where Gene Sarazen unveiled his newly invented sand wedge en route to winning the Open of 1932. However, the dismantling of the nuclear power plant at Ramsgate which loomed over the course must be a welcome development for the club’s visitor appeal.”

Prince’s Golf Club received a score of 5 out of 10 from Tom Doak and a score of 5 out of 10 from one of his co-authors.
