4.11pm 19th January 2021 - Travel

North Foreland Golf Club, located just 13 miles along the coast from Royal St George’s and one of the most highly-regarded seaside golf courses in the country, is giving attendees of The Open Championship the opportunity to combine watching with playing by giving them early access to book tee times, as well as launching special fourball packages available to book online.

The 36-hole venue is gearing up for the arrival of golf fans from across the world by reserving tee times for visitors between Monday, July 12, and Monday, July 19, 2021.

Situated on the picturesque Kent coast in the holiday town of Dickensian Broadstairs, North Foreland is considered one of the best member clubs in the area and is opening up its tee sheet early for visitors eager to play at one of Royal St George’s surrounding venues.

Golfers can play the dramatic downland course, which runs along the clifftops and offers sea views from every tee, from just £125 throughout the week or as a fourball package from £450 which includes breakfast or lunch, complimentary range balls and a souvenir welcome pack for each player.

Chris Dowrick, North Foreland’s general manager, said: “With The Open returning to Royal St George’s for the first time in 10 years, this is a great opportunity to showcase our extraordinary venue to golfers that haven’t played here before.

“It’s going to be a fantastic celebration of golf and I know that watching the world’s best compete for the Claret Jug and the excitement of the event will get attendees raring for a round themselves. This is why we’re giving them early access to our tee sheet and launching our special fourball package so that they can make the most of their trip and play one of the best surrounding courses.

“We’re really looking forward to the tournament, which looks like it will go ahead with a degree of normality with the roll-out of the Covid vaccines by then, but especially excited to welcome avid golfers to North Foreland.”

North Foreland boasts two exceptional year-round golf courses – the Main Course and the Northcliffe Course – complemented by top-class clubhouse facilities to match, with the delightful Lighthouse Brasserie and Bar offering panoramic views of the sea and coastline.

Renowned for its fast-running fairways and greens, along with coastal views that are among the best in England, the 6,436-yard, par-71 Main Course is a fantastic test for all golfers – with the open front nine holes being contrasted nicely with the tighter back nine and a mixture of strategically-placed bunkers and broad fairways.

The Northcliffe Course provides the opportunity for players to hone their short game on 18 par-three holes that vary in distance from 50 to 140 yards and the club is also home to excellent practice facilities and tennis courts.
