The Royal St George’s Golf Club in Sandwich, Kent will once again play host to the Golf Open next year.

Considered one of the finest golf courses in the world, the 149th tournament will run from the 16th to the 19th July 2020 in what promises to be a major spectacular sporting event – and tickets are selling fast!

If you are thinking of heading to the tournament, book your golf accommodation to call home well in advance for the 2020 Golf Open in Sandwich, Kent.

Royal St George’s In Sandwich, Kent

Back for the 15th time in this magnificent location, The Royal St George’s Golf Club is home to more majors than any other course in England, with a total of 6,340 yards, 18 holes and 70 par.

The Open was last held at Royal St George’s in 2011 – the year when Darren Clarke became Champion Golfer of the Year. 

The golf course itself is set in 450 acres of special scientific interest (SSI) dune land overlooking the breath-taking Pegwell Bay coast.

The 6th hole, known as ‘The Maiden’, is one of the most popular viewing spots, with tall dunes offering the perfect platform to watch the competition from.

There’s also an array of fauna and flora to discover on the coastal dunes, while spectators can take in the beautiful coastal scenery as the world’s top golfers compete for the coveted Claret Jug.
