Royal Cinque Ports
The history of Kent, the oldest county in the British Isles, is fascinating and there for all to see and wonder at. It is bound up with the history of a great Golf Club, scene of the Open Championship only 50 years after the first ever; patronised and regularly played by royalty; trodden by the greats - Vardon, Taylor, Ray and Braid before the first war; Duncan, Mitchell and Hagen between the wars; and by Locke, Nicklaus and Garcia in more recent times. Royal Cinque Ports has been the scene of many Championships since that first Open and, since 1925. It is a place where all who visit leave with a feeling of having experienced something special and a desire to return.
