Review by Golfshake
Kington is the highest 18-hole course in England and stands at 1,284 ft above sea-level at its highest point, but as the website states; “do not be deterred though as the majority of any climbing is done in the car on the way to the Clubhouse!”

“Golf at the Highest Level”
For those who enjoy something a little bit different in their golfing rotas, this picturesque course on The Welsh Borders is an ideal location. There is never a dull moment during an endless run of unique holes.

“England’s highest 18-hole course is blessed with perhaps the finest golf views in the country”
There is often a tendency for over use of superlatives and hyperbole. For once this is impossible to avoid. This is the 469th course I have played in England and I am happy to sum it up by saying that if there is an inland course with finer views anywhere in the country I have yet to play it"

“There’s something quite remarkable about Kington. It has what I call the “Double Q” factor; Quirk and Quality.”
It has a similar eccentric personality to many other hilltop layouts as well as good turf, natural contours, kooky features and plenty of undulation.
Tom Doak, Golf Course Architect
“You'll remember Kington long after you've forgotten some of the championship links”
