Tudor Park Marriott and Kings Hill join forces with Golf in Kent

Premier clubs become part of county’s co-ordinated push to attract visitors from far and wide

The Golf in Kent brand has welcomed two new members in the form of the Tudor Park Marriott Hotel & Country Club and Kings Hill Golf Club after they joined the Visit Kent Golf Partners Programme.

Created to promote Kent as one of England’s finest golfing destinations, the group made the welcome addition of the Tudor Park Marriott, which boasts one of the county’s premier hotels, and is home to a championship golf course designed by golf course architect Donald Steel.


The addition of Kings Hill also strengthens Kent’s golf offering. Characterised by its traditional links turf, as well as the carries over heather and rough to narrow, fast-running fairways,  it is a real gem of a layout.

The Visit Kent Golf Partners group was originally set up by Visit Kent in 2009 when it launched a three-year campaign to develop the county into a credible golfing destination.

It currently boasts a distinguished group of golf partners, with three Open Championship venues - Royal St George’s, Royal Cinque Ports and Prince’s Golf Club - Final Open Qualifying venues, North Foreland and Littlestone, and  the London Golf Club, host of last year’s Volvo World Matchplay Championship, all involved.

“The game of golf goes back over 100 years in Kent and the county possesses an impressive array of championship links, notable lowland and parkland courses, and some relatively undiscovered tracks that make it one of England’s most varied and desirable golfing destinations,” said Cheryl Parker, head of development, partnerships and funding at Visit Kent, who are behind the Golf in Kent brand.

“Thanks to our courses, a range of golfing accommodation and excellent transport connections to Europe via Dover and the Eurotunnel, London and the south east of England making the county easily accessible for local and international golfers, we believe that Kent has a world-class golf product that will be appreciated by golfers around the world.”
