The Tradition Golf Club at Royal New Kent, with its wide variety of wild grasses, gnarly slopes, rock walls and grazing sheep is a taste of golf in the Old Country. An authentic links style course designed by Mike Strantz, it garnered a spot in Golf Digest's Top 100 Courses in the country only three years after it first opened.

No. 4 is a brute of a par 4 with two large "footprint" numbers in the landing area on the right side of the fairway. Land in one of these and a good round might get stomped on.
