The South East of England, for golfing purposes, covers no less than 11 areas with in excess of 400 golf club options, so it represents a great choice for a golfing trip.
Among those you have perhaps the best county in England for golf in Surrey. With 128 courses affiliated to Surrey Golf Union alone, there’s plenty to choose from in one of the most naturally privileged areas in the country.
Whilst it’s as tough to pick out the finest as it is to pluck the front four at the Grand National, probably the most renowned course is Sunningdale. A wonderful course in the trees and full of history, and a popular fixture in top 100 lists worldwide. You can discover all the golf courses in Surrey here.
Both Sussex’s (East and West) are also popular golfing trip destinations in the south east of England. Both counties receive better than average UK weather and benefit from the Channel coastline and short commute from London.
Buckinghamshire is another popular choice. One, due to its location, as it falls within the London commuter belt with underground services extending to the area. But secondly, there are some excellent courses.
Woburn, famously associated with Ian Poulter, offers three of those. With all three featuring in the top 100 golf courses in England.
Outside of that, you have world renowned courses such as Royal St George’s in Kent, where Colin Morikawa was the latest professional to raise the claret jug as the winner of the 149th Open at the club.
With the region stretching as far west as Hampshire, the South East has enough courses to satisfy every golfing bucket list, so if you can’t find something in the area to your liking it may just be time to trade the clubs in for something else.
