Nestling in a 200-acre ancestral deer park, deep in the Garden of England, Tudor Park, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club, offers tranquillity and invigoration in equal measure.
Just an hour’s drive from central London, amid rolling hills and wooded valleys, Tudor Park is a complete break from the city’s hustle and bustle – a great place for golfers of all abilities to test their game.
The Tudor Park Course was designed in 1988 by Donald Steel, one of Britain’s finest course architects. It is an exhilarating showcase of his skills – 6085 yards of beautifully varied holes, accompanied by delightful views over this picturesque corner of Kent.
As at many of Steel’s courses, there is an enticing mix of long and short holes, many featuring tight fairways bordered by beautiful, mature pines and other woodland areas. The best of the bunch are arguably the par-3 4th, the par-5 8th and the par-4 16th. But every hole at Tudor Park has its own personality – some friendly and relaxing, some that will test your skill and accuracy.
In recent years, Tudor Park has hosted prestigious events including the EuroPro Tour on three occasions, the Kent PGA Pro-Am and, in 2010, the English PGA Championship (South) qualifier.
