The spiritual home of the Halford Hewitt is Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club - as fine a test of links golf as you could wish to find with probably the hardest back 7 holes in Amateur golf.
In 1950, the competition grew too large for a single club to host so the Royal St Georges was asked to help and since that time, half the field has played its initial, two rounds at Royal St Georges Golf Club.
There has traditionally been a consolation competition in the form of the Peter Kenyon bowl that is open to competitors and spectators alike. This is played at Littlestone Golf Club.
Recently (2001) a knockout plate competition has been established which follows the same format as the Hewitt with teams comprising 3 pairs of golfers. This is played at Princes Golf Club.
