One of the classic links, once on the Open rota, the wind plays its role and, on a fierce day, the tough back nine into the elements make it a frightening experience. The opening holes provide the best scoring chances but avoid the massive bunkers to maintain a good score. Daunting tee-shots, firm and fast roller-coaster greens, uphill, downhill and sidehill lies on the undulating fairways and deep rough provide the stiffest possible test. The 505-yard 16th is rated the best hole. After a long drive to clear the cross bunker, the choice is to risk hitting the small elevated green or play safe along the flat fairway. A quality course of 6,761 yards, par 72, with only three par threes for respite.
Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club is part of the following Travel Ideas:
"You need to play well on the outward half to score low. Going out you have the wind at your back, inward it is in your face. If you have played a bad front nine you can always console yourself at the halfway hut where the traditional drink is a Bovril and sherry cocktail."
