About Royal
St George's
• Royal status was bestowed on the Club by King Edward VII in May 1902.
• "The Links provides a severe test for even the greatest of golfers and the fact that only three Open winners, Bill Rogers in 1981, Greg Norman in 1993 and Ben Curtis in 2003, have managed to be under par after the 72 holes, speaks for itself."
• The Club has hosted PGA and Amateur Championships and Walker and Curtis Cups and the Open Championship 14 times (1894, 1899, 1904, 1911, 1922, 1928, 1934, 1938, 1949, 1981, 1985, 1993, 2003 and 2011).
• Also host to the 2013 Duke of York Young Champions Trophy - following the success of the 2010 championships.
• And the Ladies British Open Amateur Championship, 22-28 June 2014

A friend and I are playing St Andrews Old Course later this month, so thought it would be a good idea to practise Links golf before we went.
Where better than Royal St Georges?
What a course. Tight fairways, blind tee shots, blind 2nd shots and not a marker post in sight. To say the rough was brutal would be an understatement. Knee-high at its most foregiving!
Both of us managed several pars and the occasional birdie, but my personal highlight was an eagle 3 on the par 5 seventh! Magnificent feeling, only tinged by blobbng the 8th & 9th due to over-excitement!
Staff at the club were also extremely helpful and courteous.

I played RSG last month (March) in a howling gale. The front nine were not too exposed and I was 4 over, the back nine were mercilessly wind swept ... 12 over. The course is however magnificent and even in winter plays off full tees and greens. The greens were quick and true and beautifully kept. For such a prestigious and rather exclusive club the officials and green staff I met during the day were very friendly and welcoming. I have played some of the great links course in the UK including the Old Course at St Andrews and this is right up there with the best. It's pot luck whether you get to play in the wind or not but even though conditions were tough it was a day to remember.

When I took my father to Royal St. George's for his 60th birthday in early June we were lucky enough to enjoy our round on a day with hardly a breath of wind. The course has the appearance of having grown rather than having been built and the greens were in fabulous condition.
The view that greets you on some of the tees is scary in the respect that on a number of holes you are driving unsighted over dunes hoping that there is a fairway somewhere in that direction. There were no poles or indicators of the desired line on these holes and as a result the first round can be somewhat daunting. However, we managed to find most fairways (which is just as well with the knee-length rough just feet away from the short stuff) and we both managed to score reasonably well.
I imagine that when the wind blows (as I'm reliably informed it often does on this coastline) the course becomes an absolute monster which you would need to fight your way around.
Either way though, be it windy or still, this course is a great challenge and a great experience and I hope we get to play it again next year.
