Maidstone PGA Golf Course Proves Its Fairway Fare Is Well Above Par

Tudor Park, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club, Receives Top Honors for Its Culinary Offerings on the Green

MAIDSTONE, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - May 23, 2013) - When golfers check out a course, they examine the fairways, the surrounding terrain and the design. But there's another element of play that golfers, whether they're amateur or professional, appreciate almost as much, and that is the food. All that walking, swinging and fresh air, after all, can work up quite an appetite.

Golfers everywhere, then, should take note of Tudor Park, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club, since it was nationally recognized this year for having the "best presented and tastiest food in golf." The award was presented by the 59club, which evaluates service at golf venues throughout the United Kingdom, and whose six agents anonymously visited Tudor Park over the past year.

Located amid a picturesque Kentish landscape, this Maidstone hotel won over 59club judges with its stylishly casual, lounge-like restaurant, Zest Bar. Serving classic and contemporary dishes that feature the best of local and seasonal produce, Zest Bar is the perfect place to enjoy anything from a full lunch to England's favorite pastime: grabbing a post-game pint. Executive Chef Tom Biddle, who oversees all dining offerings at Tudor Park, is the youngest executive chef out of all the Marriott hotels in the UK.

As with its restaurants, the Tudor Park Country Club draws ample inspiration from Maidstone's Kentish countryside where ancient, undulating hills evoke the glory of England's history. The hotel's Donald Steel-designed, 18-hole golf course unfurls within a 200-acre park to offer the best of the game's challenges and pleasures. Related amenities include a driving range and putting green, rentals, lessons and a junior golf program.

With so many features to recommend it, Tudor Park, A Marriott Hotel & Country Club has managed to establish a unique niche within the hospitality community. And whether it's for the tantalizing comfort food or the impeccable greens, visitors are sure to be as impressed by the award-winning property as industry veterans have been.
