England's Golf Coast

We can also highly recommend the other superb golf courses in Southport. Although maybe not as famous as their illustrious Royal neighbour they are all British Open Qualifiers and highly regarded in their own right. Hillside Golf Club (venue for the British Masters 2019) situated adjacent to Royal Birkdale, is a testing mixture of links and parkland and has often been described as one of the best courses in the UK never to have hosted an Open Championship.

Southport and Ainsdale Golf Club (locally known as S&A) is across the Railway Line from Hillside Golf Club, again, an Open Qualifier and a serious test of golf for all levels of handicaps. Two other courses well worthy of mention are West Lancashire Golf Club and Formby Golf Club. Both these courses may not be as famous as the “big three” previously mentioned but they are without a doubt well worth playing as part of your total golf holiday packages to Southport.
