Prince’s Golf Club, Royal St. George’s and Royal Cinque Ports have joined forces to offer a unique and storied championship links experience – the Hagen 54.
The name takes its inspiration from Walter Hagen’s now-famous 1920 Open Championship practice round, that stretched over parts of each course; hopping the fences as he went.
The Hagen Hoof, an iconic 54-hole member’s event taking place across all three courses, already commemorates the strong collaboration between the venues – with the Hagen 54 set to offer every golfer the opportunity to experience the ultimate Open Championship package.
The triumvirate of world class golf courses, situated just mere minutes from one another on England’s southeast shoreline in the county of Kent, have hosted a combined 18 Open Championships, as well as a plethora of men’s and women’s elite professional and amateur events, and each feature across a host of international Top 100 rankings – presenting a combination of supreme quality and proximity that is few and far between globally.
All three clubs under the Hagen 54 umbrella will be in attendance at The PGA Show in Orlando, to meet and discuss the new alignment with US golf tour operators: in preparation for welcoming travellers worldwide to this revered home of English championship links golf.
The inaugural Hagen 54 package is a two night and three round offering which enables travelling golfers to enjoy each of the links while staying at The Lodge at Prince’s, which housed many of the world’s best golfers during the 2021 Open Championship held at Royal St. George’s.
Over the three days, golfers can explore one of the world’s most celebrated links courses at St. George’s, revel in the recently reimagined and varied links at Prince’s, and enjoy the tradition of an ‘out and back’ links at Royal Cinque Ports.
Located in the south-east of England, the courses are easily accessible to every travelling golfer. Just two hours by car from major London airports, and with fantastic rail connections, golfers from around the globe can take travel concerns out of the equation.
Included within the itinerary are all green fees, a two-night stay at The Lodge at Prince’s, a two-course dinner each evening at the Brasserie on the Bay (located at The Lodge), lunch at each venue post-round, a course guide at each venue, and complimentary range balls.
Furthermore, in celebration of Walter Hagen’s endeavours on the Kent coast, the collective of clubs will be hosting an entirely unique event on 24th July, 2025; whereby guests can challenge themselves in a one day, 54-hole event, mirroring the format of the now legendary ‘Hagen Hoof’ event in which the club teams compete annually.
