There’s a buzz of excitement in the golfing world as the 149th Golf Open comes home to Kent, causing the surrounding area to be a very popular holiday destination for the summer of 2020. Accommodation searches are underway for group bookings and cottage rentals in and around the beautiful area of East Kent, and Deal is the ideal tranquil town to retreat to after a gorgeous day out watching sporting history being made. Only a couple of miles from Royal St Georges, the Little Deal Cottage is the perfect place to stay after strolling around the fairways, to put your feet up with a glass of something cold.
The Royal St George’s historic links course has been announced as hosting the Open from 12-19 July 2020, making it the home of sporting history for the 15th time. The tournament will undoubtedly be as unforgettable as 2011 when Darren Clarke lifted the Claret Jug, beating Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson to become Champion Golfer of the Year.
Hotels, bed and breakfasts and rental properties in the surrounding areas are already being booked in advance, and Deal is the perfect location. The Little Deal Cottage has all the luxuries of a home away from home, less than 15 minutes from the course by car. Any avid golf fan would relish this week away to soak in the atmosphere and still get away from it all, mingling with other golf enthusiasts at the many pubs and restaurants Deal has to offer.
Our cottage is less than 100 yards from the beach and a short stroll into the town centre. There is ample car parking directly outside in the picturesque Alfred Square. Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club, currently ranked 7th in England and previous host of The Open Championship, is less than a mile away. This is the ideal location for lovers of links golf.
Nearby Sandwich saw more than 180,000 visitors in 2011, and an extra 37,000 passengers made use of the high speed train service from London St Pancras, therefore we would recommend booking at the earliest opportunity.
