Lullingstone Park might be one of the best established and, according to some, one of the most exciting golf courses in the south-east, but it’s also a great destination for anyone looking to spend time in beautiful Kent countryside.
With the 18-hole castle course and its nine-hole valley course companion, Lullingstone Park is an ideal spot for both the serious golfer and families, as Mark Watt, head professional, explains:
“Over the past few years we’ve invested heavily in our grounds maintenance programme and our dedicated green-keeping team have worked hard to improve playing conditions and enhance the golfing experience,” he says.
Participation in golf is often restricted by the time involved, especially in a world in which many of us lead increasingly full and busy lives. That’s no reason not to enjoy the game at Lullingstone, explains Mark.
“Our nine-hole is a big hitters’ course that many find challenging and rewarding. A round can be completed in two to three hours, making it ideal for the longer summer evenings.”
And for the serious golfer, Mark points to Lullingstone Park Golf Club which this summer marked its 50th anniversary – and half a century – helping both seasoned and novice players enjoy all the benefits and challenges offered by some of the best golfing opportunities in the south east.
“Our wonderful setting also makes us an ideal spot for families to enjoy the outdoors and, maybe, have a game of pitch and putt, while The Lodge provides a setting in which to enjoy a coffee, some lunch or an afternoon drink with friends,” adds Mark.
“And for those into history, our course sits in a location with links back to Tudor times and connections to World War II as well as occupying an area of outstanding natural beauty.”
