Littlestone Golf Club
Littlestone Golf Club boasts two magnificent, 18-hole, golf courses set out on the naturally undulating land on the famous Romney Marsh. The original Championship Links course, founded in 1888, was designed in part by highly regarded course architect James Braid.
This traditional links course has a rich history with both the famous and infamous having graced its greens over the past 130-plus years.
It is rated within the Top 100 Golf Courses in England and Top 125 in the whole of the UK and has hosted the Open Qualifiers on five occasions, most recently in 2011.
The club and the course continue to grow in reputation both domestically and globally as visitors appreciate the well cared-for greens and its convenient location near the HS1 train to London and the Channel Tunnel, both only a few miles away in Cheriton.
The second course, The Warren, originally a 9 hole course, was extended to 18 holes in the mid 1990s and now boasts a large and thriving membership of its own, but all under the Littlestone flag. Although a slightly shorter course it is no less of a challenge to golfers who may find the Championship course is too long.
This part of Kent enjoys one of the driest climates in the UK and both courses at Littlestone are renowned for their year-long superb condition, where temporary greens and tees are unheard of.
Visitors are welcomed seven days a week, with societies able to visit on specific days. All players are assured of a warm welcome, whichever course they choose.
