The golf courses and historic estate of Hever Castle in west Kent is the latest golf property to link up with Golf in Kent (www.golfinkent.co.uk) to promote the county as an all-round golfing destination in England.
Hever Castle is not only one of Kent’s most famous attractions, it is home to a 7,002-yard, par 72 championship parkland course, comprising the Kings and Queens nine-hole courses, as well as the nine-hole Princes Course, which are complemented by a Tudor-style clubhouse.
The Kent Open and Kent PGA Championships have been staged at Hever in recent times and it was showcased on Sky Sports TV when it hosted a PGA EuroPro Tour event in 2010. The Hever estate also offers golfers the chance to experience an overnight stay in two of its historic buildings, either in its five-star luxury B&B in the Astor Wing and the Anne Boleyn Wing, an Edwardian wing attached to the Castle, or in its five-star, gold-rated cottage, Medley Court, which is ideal for a group or families.
The Golf in Kent Partnership, run in association with Visit Kent, promotes the county as ‘A golfer’s paradise in the Garden of England’ with its array of coastal links and inland courses, plus a wide range of accommodation, its wealth of off-course cultural and historical attractions.
Jon Wittenberg, general manager at Hever Castle Golf Club stated, “We are very excited to partner the Visit Kent Golf Programme as we offer a unique golfing experience that combines good quality golf set against the backdrop of an incredibly historic setting that appeals to both local and international golfers.” More at: www.hevercastle.co.uk
