The 2021 Open Championship marker. (SHIPS JULY 7th)
The Royal St George's Golf Club located in Sandwich, Kent, England, is a golf club in the U.K. and one of the courses on The Open Championship rotation and is the only Open rota golf course to be located in Southern England. It has hosted 14 Open championships, the first in 1894 when it became the first club outside Scotland to host the championship.
The club was founded by the surgeon Laidlaw Purves in 1887 in a setting of wild duneland. Many holes feature blind or partially blind shots, although the unfairness element has been reduced somewhat, after several 20th century modifications. The course also possesses the deepest bunker in championship golf, located on its fourth hole.
Author Ian Fleming used the Royal St George's course under the name "Royal St. Marks" in his 1959 novel Goldfinger. When he died, Fleming was the Captain-elect of the Club.
