The South East of England, for golfing purposes, covers no less than eleven areas with in excess of 400 golf club options, so it represents a great choice for a golfing trip. It’s as tough to pick out the finest as it is to pluck the front four at the Grand National, but probably the most renowned is Sunningdale, a wonderful course in the trees and full of history, and a popular fixture in top 100 lists worldwide.
Royal St George’s in Kent and the heathland of West Sussex Golf Club at Pulborough are other courses that regular feature among golfing lists, with Darren Clarke a winner of the Open at Royal St George’s Golf Club in 2011. The Open tournament returns there in 2020 which makes it a great choice if you fancy trying your hand at a world famous links course before the pros return.
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.
