Royal St. George`s

Other Tournaments

The Club is proud to have hosted many major tournaments, in addition to the Open Championship, for both Amateur and Professional golfers.

These include: The Walker Cup, The Curtis Cup, The Amateur, the English Amateur, The PGA Championship, the Home Internationals and the Brabazon Trophy.

Many of golf's most famous names have won tournaments here - Arnold Palmer won the PGA in 1975, reaching the 14th with two prodigious blows with his driver on a stormy day when no other competitor got closer than 40 yards from the green in two.

... Sandwich has a charm that belongs to itself ... The long strip of turf on the way to the seventh hole, that stretches between the sand-hills and the sea; a fine Spring day, with the larks singing as they seem to sing nowhere else; the sun shining on the waters of Pegwell Bay and lighting the white cliffs in the distance; this is as nearly my idea of Heaven as is to be attained on any earthly links.
