Visit Kent has launched a website www.golfinkent.co.uk to showcase the county as a golfing destination. Kent has more than 100 golf courses and three of the six clubs in England to have hosted the Open Championship - Royal St Georges’s Princes and Royal Cinque Ports. The website also covers accommodation suited to golfers and also covers some non-golfing tourist attractions in the county.
Weekend breaks and golf tours from two to six days can be booked directly through the new website or tailored to suit individual requirements. www.golfinkent.co.uk have also launched a twitter account, @GolfInKent
The creation of the web site is part of Visit Kent’s strategy to create a legacy from the staging of The Open Championship at Royal St George’s in 2011. “Golfinkent.co.uk has given the county a much needed showcase for its first class golf offering,” explains Cheryl Parker, Head of Development, Partnerships & Funding at Visit Kent. “After all the ‘Garden of England’ has a golfing pedigree that goes back over 100 years and boasts Open Championship venues, traditional links layouts and some notable lowland and parkland courses that make it one of England’s most attractive and diverse golfing destinations.”
