Originally a nine-hole course, in 1912 Fowler and Simpson were employed to design the existing full 18 holes so enjoyed by so many to this day.</p><p>In addition to the main course, which measures 6,436 yards off the championship tees, we have a challenging par 3 short course which offers the perfect environment for beginners to learn the game or more proficient players to hone their short game skills.</p><p>North Foreland has a spacious, modern and welcoming clubhouse which offers a magnificent venue for civil wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, parties and any other occasion you would care to celebrate with us. Our welcome is guaranteed to be a warm one, the catering has an enviable reputation and allied to the excellent service offered by our efficient and friendly staff we are confident an initial visit will prove to be the first of many.</p><p>There is much at North Foreland to enjoy and whether potential member, visitor or golfing society, we invite you to visit us and sample our hospitality and exceptional facilities both on and off the course.</p></li><li><p>Our practices success is founded on a commitment to cost effective high quality treatment and exceptional customer service. Patients experience the benefit that modern dentistry can deliver without feeling intimated by exuberant costings.</p><p>One of the advantages of being a smaller, intimate practice rather than a large High Street one, is that we know each of our patients and their needs personally. Not only can prospective patients be assured of a warm welcome when they visit, but they will receive a fully personalized service.</p><p>We provide high quality dentistry for all the family and our highly skilled and knowledgeable team provide cutting edge dental treatments with a wholly patient focused ethos, eliminating the image of a crowded waiting room, unfriendly dentists and painful treatments.</p><p>Dr. James Opperman and staff at Th Dental Surgery are always welcoming new patients.</p><p>Opening hours:Mon to Thurs 8.30 - 17.00, Friday 8.30 - 14.00Every alternate Sat from 9.00 to 13.00</p><p>We can be contacted by:Email: thedentalsurgery@ymail.comWebsite: thedentalsurgery.biz </p><p>01843 865591 6 Ramsgate Road | BroadstairsKent | CT10 1QQ</p><p>urgery</p></li><li><p>www.northforeland.co.uk 7</p><p>The Beginning of the ClubThe North Foreland Golf Club started out as just a wealthy mans playground filled with gothic ruins and castles, but after the land was passed to several different landowners it started its magnificent transformation into the golf club we all know and love today.</p><p>Lord Avebury and William Capel Slaughter were responsible for the founding of North Foreland Golf Club in 1903 and, with Sir Luke Fildes and Clifford Brookes, sat on the first committee of the new club.</p><p>Within a few years thoughts turned to enlarging the course to 18 holes and it was then that the committee turned to another member, Alfred Charles William Harmsworth, later Lord Northcliffe. Harmsworth was the owner of the large estate on the other side of Convent Road.</p><p>Taking a lease on this additional land gave the course its most outstanding landmark - the North Foreland Lighthouse, which became the proud emblem of North Foreland Golf Club.</p><p>The role of Lord Northcliffe, in transforming an average course on poor quality land into one of the most popular seaside courses in the country is without comparison.</p><p>In 1918, Northcliffe purchased the tower and convent fields from the trustees of the Slaughter Estate so that he then owned the whole of the golf course. The period of North Forelands life that followed, arguably became the most dynamic and interesting in its first 100 years, ranging from prosperity to bankruptcy. </p></li><li><p>We are currently running a special midweek menu priced at only 10.00 for two courses Monday to Friday.

With money apparently no object, his plan was to make the course more challenging and attractive to holiday visitors and work started almost immediately.</p><p>Alongside the 12th hole of the main course (now the 18th), Northcliffe built a new miniature approaching and putting course of 18 holes, the first of its kind in the country.</p><p>The main course also underwent major changes ranging from sand bunkers to replace the grass bunkers, chains of hills constructed across the course, five holes being drastically altered to enhance game play, to tennis courts being built close to the new clubhouse.</p><p>Northcliffe died in 1922, but his influence carried on long after his death. But this is not the end of North Foreland Golf Clubs enthralling history, far from it. In North Foreland Golf Club founded 1903 - A celebration of over 100 years of golf at Kingsgate in Kent by Arthur King and Tony Lavender, you can read about the characters and events that occurred during that dynamic period of the clubs history between 1919 and 1940, when North Foreland was at its zenith.</p><p>It also recalls how, as the war approached, the club fell into decline and finally, with the outbreak of war itself, the North Foreland Golf Club Ltd was wound up, its assets sold and the golf clubs membership books closed.</p></li><li><p>We advise individuals, companies and trustees on all matters financial and we retain access to lawyers and tax specialists to advise our clients where it is appropriate.

With commanding views to the North Sea and lush emerald fairways and greens, our two courses offer a combination of beauty and sporting challenge.</p><p>The Main or Long Course comprises four par-3, three par-5 and eleven par-4 holes. Spaced over rolling cliff-top terrain, this seascape vista is an open view from every hole and the broad fairways instil a sense of relaxation and tee-shot confidence. Dont be fooled! Strategically placed bunkers await and that all-important second shot needs careful thought: making and holding the greens is deceptively tricky.</p><p>The three short par 3s look innocuous but fire off line and recovery is far from easy. The fourth and longer par three requires length with accuracy and is a fine test as our 18th hole. The par-5 holes are fair and straightforward until you encounter the wind, which is often. </p><p>On average most of the par-4 holes, depending on that wind again, can be reached in two but the 8th and 9th both offer a considerable challenge and one feels successful with a bogey on each. The variety and quality of our 18 holes leads to much admiration and praise and we are proud to be able to provide a wonderful day-in day-out golfing experience to all of our members and visitors alike. </p><p>The par 54 Northcliffe Short Course offers a perfect environment for beginners to the game of golf whilst still being able to frustrate the most able of golfers with its idiosyncratic charm.</p></li><li><p>John ElvidgE Planning ConsultanCy</p><p>We are a Town Planning Consultancy service based in Thanet, Kent, with over 35 years experience providing a professional planning service for East Kent, the South East and England.</p><p>We have extensive experience of all forms of development, ranging from domestic extensions, through changes of use to major development schemes, including residential; retail; commercial; education; leisure and agricultural developments.</p><p>our expertise covers the full range of town planning functions, including: - </p><p> PlanningApplications</p><p> Pre-PlanningApplicationAdviceandSiteAssessment</p><p> PlanningAppeals(WrittenRepresentations;Informal Hearings and Public Inquiries)</p><p> EnforcementNoticesandBreachofConditionNotices</p><p> CompliancewithplanningConditions</p><p> Advertisements</p><p> ListedBuildings</p><p> ConservationAreas</p><p> PermittedDevelopment</p><p> ObjectionsandRepresentations</p><p> LocalDevelopmentFrameworkSubmissions</p><p> LawfulDevelopmentCertificates</p><p>Telephone: 079144 21548 / 01843 297054Fax:01843297054|Email:johnelvidge@mail.comwww.johnelvidgeplanning.co.uk</p><p>TheOldStableBlock|KingGeorgeVIMemorialPark|MontefioreAvenu...</p></li></ul>
