The course was completed in 1906 with a layout that was among the first to counter the longer distances being achieved with the new breed of rubber-core golf balls.
At over 7,000 yards, it quickly gained a great reputation as a top quality links and an excellent test of golf.
In 1932 The Open visited Prince’s for what would prove to be the first and only time. Gene Sarazen set a new scoring record for the Championship of 283 using his newly invented sand wedge. The present-day 27-hole layout is the result of a 1950 re-design following war-time damage to the original course which was redesigned and rebuilt by Sir Guy Campbell and John Morrison.
Prince's Golf Club is located adjacent to Royal St George’s, the venue for The 149th Open. Qualifying in 2022 will take place on the Shore/Dunes Course.
