Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club
A former Open Championship venue, the Deal course is traditionally laid out on a narrow stretch of land extending to Sandwich Bay, and the natural links terrain has been subtly used to provide a wide variety of challenges.
On almost every hole there is an abundance of large sand dunes which establishes the undulating character of the course and makes it unique. Unlike most other courses the fairways are just as undulating and it is seldom that a completely flat stance can be obtained other than on the tees. As with all traditional seaside links, the wind is a major factor which has to be taken into account when deciding on club and shot selection. On the first and last holes there are water ditches which come into play for the approach shot. As the course runs outward parallel to the pebble beach, this can present quite a problem (often for your foursomes partner, and especially in a left-to-right wind!) - as the sea wall and beach are integral parts of the course. The rough is covered in coarse marram grass which is especially punitive between May and August.
