Panellists’ Comments: “A superb links course, one of the best in England”; “I would love to see it back on the Open roster, I think the Pros would love it and it would provide a deserving winner”; “The undulations around the greens are fantastic and will feed the imagination of any golfer’s short game”; “The members at Royal St Georges will tell you theirs is the only course in the area… the members at Royal Cinque Ports know better.”
