Prince’s Golf Club, on England’s Kent coast, has unveiled its new Lodge at Prince’s accommodation for stay-and-play golfers.
The Kent links hosted The Open Championship in 1932 and is situated between the historic coastal towns of Deal and Sandwich, the latter being home to Royal St George’s Golf Club.
The 38-bedroom lodge was opened on the 80th anniversary of the 1932 Open Championship and has been built on the site of Princes’ 27-hole championship layout, which was recently renovated by European Golf Design.
John George, general manager at Prince’s Golf Club & The Lodge at Prince’s, said: ”This is a momentous occasion for everyone involved in what has been an exciting two years witnessing the transformation of the courses and the construction of our spectacular new accommodation offering.
We look forward to welcoming both visiting golfers, members and locals to The Lodge at Prince’s and servicing them with warm hospitality, a first-class dining experience and the ability to unwind and relax after golf in our sumptuous bedrooms and apartments.”
All lodge bedrooms have en-suite facilities and the building has a lounge, bar, terrace and snooker room.
Prince’s has also opened a new contemporary restaurant called The Brasserie on the Bay where the emphasis is on serving traditional Kentish produce. The Brasserie also has excellent views of Prince’s Golf Club, Royal St Georges Golf Club and across Pegwell Bay to the White Cliffs at Ramsgate.
“From the moment we were first appointed by Prince’s the potential for it to be turned into a must-visit golf destination was clear to see,” commented Bruce Glasco, Troon’s Senior Vice President & Managing Director, International Operations.
“To see this dream realised is extremely satisfying and what we see before us today is undoubtedly a testament to the owner’s passion to turn Prince’s into a magnificent golfing facility capable of hosting professional tournament at a moment’s notice.”
Along with its neighbours Royal St Georges and Royal Cinque Ports, Prince’s shares the famous strip of links land between the towns of Sandwich and Deal, making it one of Southern England’s must-visit golf destinations.
Host of the 1932 Open Championship won by Gene Sarazen, Prince’s Golf Club is one of only 14 courses to have hosted the most famous event in golf. The club has also welcomed The European Tour, The Curtis Cup, the Ladies British Open and The Amateur Championship, which it co-host again in 2013.
