"In my mind Royal St. George’s at Sandwich is a championship links golf course with few, if any, superiors. Back in 2014 a trip to compete (I use that term very loosely) in the South-East of England Links Championship presented an opportunity for me to complete the playing of every Open Championship course in England."

Below you will find our golf course reviews from venues in the South East of England including London, Surrey, Sussex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Hampshire and Kent.
"I always enjoy my visits to play Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club at Deal, the Kentish town that the course is often referred to by name. It’s an excellent links golf course that requires imagination and skill as well as distance and sound hitting. However, cunning is certainly the order of the day for the most part here."
"Sunningdale is a great golf club with two fantastic heathland golf courses. I was expecting something special on my first ever trip to Sunningdale and it didn't let me down. In fact it delivered in spades."
"Walton Heath, a club with a rich history and distinguished membership, is an oasis of pure heathland golf situated a mere 20 miles outside the city of London."
"As long as golf is played the debate about which is the best Surrey heathland course will rage. It's a puzzle that will never be solved because it's such a subjective question. However, what is certain is that St. George's Hill will always be a contender. And a very strong one at that."
"Before I even begin to tell you how good this golf course is I want to let you know just how perfect the entire set-up at West Sussex is."
"It’s safe to say there’s a lot more to Rye Golf Club than the actual golf course."
"Swinley Forest is a delectably English golf club set in the heart of the Berkshire sand-belt on a secluded parcel of land boasting beautiful heather, gorse and pines."
"A full day of golf (and lunch) at The Berkshire is one of life’s little luxuries and definitely worth saving up for."
"I love pretty much everything about the intriguing and challenging links at Littlestone. There is a rustic charm to this most appealing of layouts where you enjoy all the best traits of seaside golf."
"Hayling is an extremely fast running golf course played over pure linksland. It begins at a nice steady pace then gathers momentum towards and around the turn before it gradually but emphatically builds to a crescendo at the 12th; one of the finest holes you will ever play."
"It may be located in the far South-East corner of England but as I found out recently a trip to Prince's is well worth a visit."
"I played Blackmoor on a beautiful summer evening, paid just £35 for a twilight green-fee and had virtually the entire property all to myself."
"New Zealand Golf Club is one of the least heralded golf courses on the Surrey sandbelt yet it is one of the most fascinating and maximises its relatively flat terrain to great effect."
"In an area drenched with a bountiful number of the country’s elite courses West Hill stands proud as one of Surrey's oldest and most respected."
"Stoneham’s biggest asset is undoubtedly its superb routing over adventurous terrain which ultimately lends itself to some unique and brilliant golf holes."
"Coombe Hill is a thrilling JF Abercromby design that compares well with many, if not most, of the famed nearby Surrey and Berkshire courses that occupy the various top 100 golf course lists."
