Southport is home to the UK's highest concentration of championship links courses - it is perfect for a golfing holiday, no matter what your handicap!
Royal Birkdale Golf Club, this prestigious course, is the jewel in the crown of Southport’s golfing heritage and is widely regarded as the best links course in England and is a regular host to The Open Championship.
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, which is why it is regarded as ‘England's Golfing Capital'.
Southport is also an ideal base to explore England's Golf Coast, including Royal Liverpool Golf Club & Royal Lytham & St Annes - these are some of the best golf courses in the world. You can leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, relax and enjoy some of the best links golf in the world - why would you need to try anywhere else?
