Kington Golf Club

The Course

Kington Golf Club is the highest 18 hole golf course in England and is Herefordshire’s #1 golf course

The golf-course was designed in 1926 by Major Cecil Hutchinson (who also designed Gleneagles) and is set in glorious National Trust land. The course overlooks the rich agricultural land of Herefordshire and the Welsh borders and offers unrivalled panoramic views of The Brecon Beacons, The Black Mountains, The Clee Hills, The Shropshire Hills and the Malvern Hills.

The terrain at Kington Golf Club has been described as an inland-links and it offers well-draining, springy moorland turf often playable when other local courses are water-logged.

At Kington, you will be warmly welcomed not only by the skylarks but also by our PGA Professional and our friendly bar and catering staff. The Clubhouse offers a wide range of refreshments and distant views over many miles.

We look forward to welcoming you at Kington.
