100 Top Golf Courses

Top 5 Golf Courses in Herefordshire 2015"

Kington has retained its position as number one in Herefordshire in the Top 100 Golf Courses.  

"Kington is a course that revels in something approaching cult status, with architect Tom Doak recently becoming a fan.  As the architect says in the latest edition of his book "The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses", "if you enjoy seeing something different, you'll remember Kington long after you've forgotten some of the championship links".

Reputed to be the highest in England, the course lies on Bradnor Hill, with generally wide, largely unshaped fairways playing to bunkerless, narrow greens.  It's a quirky layout that won't appear to everybody but if ever a course was designed to afford a fun round of golf then Kington is that very layout.

Winter Rules - October 5, 2015


To take effect from Monday, 5 October, 2015

Members and visitors are respectfully requested to observe the following Winter Rules which are designed to protect the course and promote fair play:

Preferred Lies.   In general play a ball lying on a closely-mown area may be marked, lifted, cleaned and replaced within 12 inches, not nearer the hole.  However in qualifying Competitions the ball must be replaced within 6 inches.  A player can only replace his ball once, if the ball subsequently moves there is no penalty but the ball must be played as it lies.  If a player fails to mark his ball before lifting, or moves the ball in any other manner eg. With his club, he incurs a one–shot penalty.

Grass Bunkers.  Preferred lies may be taken in all grass bunkers as explained in (1) above.                                                                    

Par 3’s. Preferred lies may be taken within the areas enclosed by white lines.                                                                                                  
Restricted Areas.  Play is prohibited from renovated and worn areas labelled PP. The ball may be dropped at the nearest point of relief without penalty,  Also walkways restricted by metal posts and ropes must not be crossed.

Determination of Relief Areas.  This is sometimes difficult at Kington. In competitions please consult your playing partners and in the interests of fair play if in doubt play the ball as it lies.

Summer Ball at Downton House, Saturday, July 11, 2015

We would like to thank all the members of Kington Golf Club who not only came to our Summer Ball and but also brought friends with them.  Without your support it would not have been the success that it undoubtedly was

Special thanks to go our Sponsors, to the various people who provided the wonderful Auction prizes and of course to those who bid for them and others who contributed financially.  

However, without the work of the Social & Fundraising Committee this would not even have got off the ground.  Always at these events there are the unsung heroes who give so generously of their time in helping to prepare for an event.  Thank you.  

Thanks to your generosity we raised the amazing amount of £12,429.46, which will be equally split between Kington Golf Club and  our Joint Captains' Charity, St Michael's Hospice in Hereford.

Defibrillator installed at Kington Golf Club


As you may have seen, the defibrillator is now available for use in its cabinet on the side of the Clubhouse.  The defibrillator integrates instructions for use so that in theory anyone can use it.  If you have the need, first dial 999 or 112 so that the Emergency Services can respond.  In the call, you will also be given the code for the cabinet.  This code will also be available on notices inside the Clubhouse.  (The code protects the equipment from vandalism.)  You should also be able to seek help from the bar or Pro shop.

A number of people will be trained to gain extra confidence in the use of the defibrillator.  This will be in the Clubhouse at 7pm, 22nd June.  Numbers are not really limited so if you would be willing to be trained please contact Nikki Scott (01544 231209).

You will also see notices on the course advertising the defibrillator.

100 Club - Kington Golf Club

Once again we are doing the 100 Club for the Golf Club.  For £40 (or 76p per week - which is less than parking your car for an hour in some of the Hereford car parks!) you stand the chance of receiving a cheque every month.

The proceeds from the 100 Club go towards helping provide improvements for our exceptional Club.

Forms are available from Sarah in the Pro Shop.  

Do support us.

Vice Captain running Hereford Half Marathon - Sunday, 10 May

As you are aware our Ladies' Vice Captain, Pip Frost, is running the Hereford Half Marathon on Sunday, 10 May.   She has very generously chosen her Charity to be the Joint Captain's Charity, 2015 - St Michael’s Hospice.  She has done this so that we can all sponsor her from the Club thereby helping our Charity. 

Sponsorship forms are now available behind the bar at the Club.

Do please support her generously.  Running a Marathon, as many of you will know, is not simply running on the actual day but all the hard preparation and training leading up to it.  We wish you well, Pip. 

Many thanks.
