Golf in Southport

Are you searching for the perfect golf break?

Golf in Southport is perfect for a golfing holiday, no matter what your handicap!

With the UK's highest concentration of championship links courses in the UK, golf in Southport is of the highest standard and the town is understandably regarded as ‘England's Golfing Capital’.

Royal Birkdale will once again host The Open Championship in 2017. This will be the 10th time this prestigious course has held the tournament. It is the jewel in the crown of Southport’s golfing heritage and is regarded as the best links course in England.

But Southport's reputation for being England's Golfing Capital is not just based on Royal Birkdale, it boasts several more championship courses within 15 minutes-drive of the town centre and another only half an hour away.

Hillside, Formby, Hesketh, Southport & Ainsdale, and West Lancashire Golf Clubs are all superb courses providing a challenge to the most accomplished golfer.

Southport is also an ideal base for Royal Liverpool Golf Club - host of the 2014 British Open Championship and Royal Lytham which hosted it in 2012, you can leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, relax and enjoy some of the best links golf in the world.

There’s lots more in Southport to keep the family entertained

Traditional things to do and attractions including Southport Beach, Southport Pier and King's Gardens are all close by and easily accessible.

With designer High Streets and independent stores and quality restaurants across the town centre you can do a spot of shopping, stop for a bite to eat at one of the many traditional pubs, cafes and farmers markets, or even pop into a spa for a little slice of heaven.

You can even take a look at our 'whats on' calendar and book tickets to one of the excellent shows in the many theatres across town. 

The accommodation in Southport can be tailored to suit your needs.

You can stay on site at Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa, indulge in boutique accommodation such as The Vincent, relax with trusted national hotel brands like the Ramada Plaza, or enjoy the home comforts of one of the many family run self catering properties and bed and breakfasts.
