Prince’s moves into top 50 of Golf World’s England rankings

Prince’s Golf Club in Kent has risen ten places into the top 50 of Golf World magazine’s latest Top 100 England rankings following the redevelopment of its Himalayas nine.

The Sandwich-based club enlisted golf course architects Mackenzie & Ebert to handle the changes to the Himalayas, and work has already begun on improving the Dunes nine, which will have bedded in well ahead of the next set of rankings.

A new signature short par-three, with the backdrop of the English Channel, is one of several notable changes, while extensive improvements to the bunkering, water hazards, green surrounds, out-of-play areas, tees and clearance of trees have upgraded the visual and playing aspects of the course.

Rob McGuirk, general manager at Prince’s, commented: “This ranking certainly gives validation to the work we have done so far and shows that we are continuing to take steps in the right direction. We are thrilled with the reimagined Himalayas nine, and I still believe that we have the potential to go much higher with the plans we have for the Dunes and Shore nines.”
