Southport Tour

Southport has an abundance of top class golf courses on a stretch heading up the Lancashire coastline. Starting in the North of the region is the rugged links of West Lancashire GC, a true test even on the calmest of days the course is used by the R&A as an Open Qualifying venue. The railway line that passes West Lancs takes you through to Southport from Liverpool cutting through the town of Formby as it goes. There you find the stunning links of Formby GC. A superb pine lined course with a real picturesque old fashioned feel to it. The course itself also has Formby Ladies GC at it’s centre, a short tight challenging track well worth playing whist you are there.

As you get into Southport and the famous Golf Coast you hit the famous three. Royal Birkdale GC has hosted The Open 10 times and is a must play. Flanking it is Hillside GC host to many amateur and qualifying events for the R&A it has one of the best back nines in world golf. Across the railway track is Southport & Ainsdale GC a two time Ryder Cup host venue in the days of Sarazen and Snead. S&A as it is known is a James Braid masterpiece, holes cut through dunes and heather it is a real test of accuracy.
