Welcome to Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Club – The Club on the Cliffs. Perched on top of the world-famous White Cliffs of Dover, with sea views from every hole, the unique location of this beautiful course delivers stunning views across the English Channel to the coast of France.
Walmer and Kingsdown is not only the closest course to Europe, separated by the world’s busiest stretch of water, but one of only a few in the world where golfers can see another country while enjoying a game. The memorable experience is enhanced by the panoramic outlook along the Kent coast towards Ramsgate, plus inland views across the countryside of the picturesque Garden of England.
The iconic White Cliffs and sparkling sea not only provide the setting for the perfect sunny Spring or Summer day – their chalk delivers rapid drainage to ensure year-round golf, regardless of the amount of Autumn or Winter rain.
Located between the port of Dover and the pretty towns of Deal and Sandwich, the Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Club is just 70 miles from London and readily accessible from all parts of southern England via the M25, M20 and M2 motorways. Access from Europe is easy too, via the Channel Tunnel and cross-channel ferries, which makes the course a popular destination for visitors from France, Belgium, The Netherlands and beyond..

The clubhouse is a popular venue for a wide range of private functions – whether it is a birthday, anniversary, Christening, retirement or office party, a business meeting or a gathering following a funeral. The clubhouse staff have extensive experience in making arrangements to suit all occasions – whether the reason and tone is happy, sad or businesslike. The service, catering and décor will be tailored to meet the specific requirements and budget of each event – from a small gathering to a large guest list and from an informal buffet to a gala dinner. Our staff have plenty of experience in managing post-funeral receptions and understand how difficult it is for those involved in planning the function at such a sad time so will ensure that all arrangements are as straightforward as possible. For happier occasions our team can assist and advise with every aspect of the event – suggesting menus and wines and assisting with suppliers for floral arrangements, entertainment and other services. The location on top of the cliffs makes our clubhouse a very special venue for all types of event, providing scenic views out to sea and along the Kingsdown beach towards Deal. It also has wonderful photographic backdrops if required. When the weather is suitable our terrace area provides an excellent outdoor space for event guests to relax.
