Three Top Golf Courses in England

An accounting graduate of Fairleigh Dickson University, Giro Maddaluna is a New Jersey-based financial adviser and asset protection planning professional. Beyond his professional experience, Giro M. Maddaluna is an international traveler and enjoys golfing.

Located on the same island as the birthplace of the sport, England hosts a number of world-class golf courses. Here are three of the most famous.

Royal St. Georges course. The host of a wide range of prominent golf events, including the Walker Cup, the PGA Championship, and others, Royal St. Georges was designed in 1887. The 18-hole course is best known for its rough fairways and deep bunkers.

London Golf Club’s Heritage course. Near the city, in Kent, the London Golf Club’s Heritage 18-hole course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1993. The par-72 course features a number of small lakes and bunkers set in naturally rolling hills. The course is only open to members and their guests, although visitors can play the club’s international course.

Royal Lytham & St. Annes courses. The two courses in Lancashire were first played more than 100 years ago. Frequently the site of the British Open Championship, the courses have a non-traditional setting and are surrounded by homes and a railway line. With hundreds of bunkers, they demand skill and accuracy from players.
