The first time the famed Kent links has been present in such rankings for 35 years, the re-entries come as a direct result of the extensive works carried out across the 27-hole property by renowned course architects Mackenzie and Ebert over the past two years.

“We’re delighted that the quality work across all three nine holes has been recognised by both these rankings,” said Rob McGuirk, General Manager at Prince’s.

“To enter the National Club Golfer rankings at no.81 is testament to the vision of Martin Ebert and the hard work of our greens staff, headed by Sean McLean.”

Prince’s also entered the recently updated Great Britain & Ireland Top 100 – with a combination of the Shore and Dunes nines - at no.99 on respected rankings website

Phase one of the redevelopment work undertaken by Mackenzie and Ebert was the now lauded ‘reimagination’ of the Himalayas nine, completed in Spring 2018. Since then, significant works have been completed on both the Shore and Dunes nines with a grand-opening planned in spring 2020.

The significant move in Great Britain and Ireland rankings follows recent success in English listings, where the club moved 10 places with Golf World magazine to no.49, and more recently both Shore/Dunes (no.45) and Himalayas (no.99) were included in the Top 100 Golf Courses in England rankings on
