Prince’s Golf Club has broken back into the Great Britain and Ireland Top 100 rankings with both and National Club Golfer.

The first time the Kent links has been present in such rankings for 35 years, the re-entries come as a direct result of the extensive works carried out across the 27-hole property by course architects Mackenzie and Ebert over the past two years.

“We’re delighted that the quality work across all three nine holes has been recognised by both these rankings,” said Rob McGuirk, General Manager at Prince’s. “To enter the National Club Golfer rankings at no.81 is testament to the vision of Martin Ebert and the hard work of our greens staff, headed by Sean McLean.”

Prince’s also entered the recently updated Great Britain & Ireland Top 100 – with a combination of the Shore and Dunes nines – at no.99 on rankings website

Phase one of the redevelopment work undertaken by Mackenzie and Ebert was the re-design of the Himalayas nine, which was completed in spring 2018. Since then, significant works have been completed on both the Shore and Dunes nines, with the official unveiling of the new-look layout planned for spring 2020.

The significant move in the GB&I courses rankings follows recent success in English listings, where the club moved up ten places with Golf World magazine to no.49, and more recently both Shore/Dunes (no.45) and Himalayas (no.99) were included in the Top 100 Golf Courses in England rankings on
