Prince's offers all that is best in modern golf: with its 27 holes of Championship links golf, practice facilities to match and a centrally located clubhouse Since its opening in 2012, Prince's can now offer visiting golfers overnight accommodation in its 38 bedroom facility - The Lodge.

Prince's boasts 3 loops of 9 holes: The Shore, The Dunes and the Himalayas, all of which have their own unique characteristics and signature holes and have benefited from significant investment and redevelopment over recent years. Players of all standards will enjoy the challenge of this links and the outstanding views.

The Lodge at Prince's, situated at the entrance to the course has 12 bedrooms and two luxurious suites and the adjacent Lodge apartments have 12 two bedroom apartments. All bedrooms have ensuite facilities, club storage and battery charging points and wonderful views across the golf course or Sandwich Bay. The apartments are particularly well suited to golfing groups with a comfortable lounge in each apartment. In addition the Lodge offers a quality dining experience in the Brasserie on the Bay which was re-awarded 2 AA Rosettes in 2014 and golfers can also enjoy the Lodge bar menu in front of the warming log burning stove or in the Summer months on the Terrace.

Went to Sandwich for the weekend primarily to play Royal Cinque Ports. Walked through Royal St. George's from the clubhouse to the other side near the beach and knew that I would not break 140 on St. George's! I was terrified of my upcoming round at Cinque Ports. Next, drove just down the road a few hundred meters to Princes... More

The shores and dunes courses are good, the Himalayas not quite so good. Shores very challenging, you need to be able to hit a long drive to clear the long grass. Well maintained.

Nestled on sandwich Bay this course, well steeped in history is a wonderful venue. The course was originally built in 1902 and was rebuilt in 1950 and is now again undergoing a partial updating and rebuilding under a new greens keeper that was stolen from St. Andrews. This is an authentic and classic links with tricky greens- a real test... More

Have just spent a w/e playing Princes with a group of friends. The course and clubhouse are tired and in need of a facelift. Attitudes in the clubhouse are outdated - bar closed on Fri and Sat at 5pm and everyone asked to leave. Staff who think golfers are less important than other visitors! Course in need of attention from... More

Princes is a really friendly and welcoming club with great facilities. The golf courses were superb, The Lodge had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and the atmosphere was brilliant. Would thoroughly recommend Princes to any golfers looking for a weekend away or just a round of quality links golf. I will definitely be back for more.
