Overview

Kington Golf Club probably the best bunker-less golf course under 6000 yards in the world!

  • The genius of the design is the use of angles in conjunction with slopes.
  • Gravity can be used to strategic advantage in the form of turbo boosts and gates for access to greens.
  • Width is a major feature as the turf is so firm and fast.

Golf Course Review

Kington Golf Club is for its spectacular views of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Black Mountains, Radnorshire Hills, Hergest Ridge, Malvern and Clee Hills. It's not really surprising being the highest 18 hole golf course in England. The heathland-moorland course is one of the best sub-6000-yard courses in the world.

In 1924, Major Cecil Hutchison was invited to lay out an 18 hole course on his choice of Hergest Ridge or Bradnor Hill. After completing both surveys he felt Bradnor Hill was the superior site. Construction began in 1925 with the course open for play in 1926. The course he prepared is virtually the course you can play today!
