Royal Jersey Golf Club
The Royal Jersey is a traditional links-style course with tight and firm fairways. You’ll enjoy the history and spectacular views of Gorey castle and the beach. The course is relatively short, but can be feisty in places. I would suggest only playing here if you play golf fairly regularly. As a visiting golfer, I would avoid Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, but it doesn’t matter what time of day you play, the view is always breathtaking.
The Royal Jersey is an 18 hole links style golf course, which runs along the beach on the East side of the Island. It was home to one of the most famous golfers in British history, Harry Vardon. No matter what time of day, or weather, you will always get spectacular views of the beach and Gorey Castle. The first hole is definitely the best in the Island, but also the toughest.
If you’re wanting to play Royal Jersey, you’ll need to have a 24 handicap for men or a 30 handicap for women. You are welcome to play between 10 am-12 pm and 2 pm-4 pm on weekdays, and after 2.30 pm on weekends and bank holidays. It’ll cost £90 to play without a member, and Juniors can play for £35. I would avoid playing on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. If you don’t bring clubs with you, you’ll be able to hire clubs and a trolley.
The Royal Jersey has a small, but great pro shop, with everything you could need for your round. It has all the latest clothing and shoes needed for the current season.
The dress code at the Royal Jersey is very traditional, with golf shoes required on the course, and a no denim or tracksuit policy. Shirts must be collared and tucked in. You will need dress shoes to go inside the clubhouse and there is also a no hat policy upstairs.
