Royal Birkdale is a legendary course and has been the scene of some of golfing's most infamous moments, such as Jordan Speith's victory in the The Open Championship in 2017 and Jeong Jang's total dominance in the 2005 RICOH Women's British Open. It is built in a classic links style and features incredible scenery as many of the holes run alongside the dunes.

Southport is just 40 minutes north of Liverpool, so make the trip this summer for an unforgettable golfing experience on one of England's most famous courses.

This course is set on the wild dunes of Sandwich in Kent. It has hosted The Open 14 times, and is truly one of England's stand out courses. The ban on female members at St. George's was only lifted in 2015, but since then it has welcomed a plethora of members and visitors through its doors.

Royal St. George's was built to challenge amateurs and professionals alike, and it's dramatic natural landscape adds to the intrigue. The infamous 4th hole is particularly tricky, but the course is guaranteed to keep you on your toes for the duration of your round. Visit Royal St. George's today for a round you'll remember for a lifetime.

The new Sunningdale course is almost 100 years old now and has certainly improved with age. It is now renowned as one of the finest courses in the UK, and is well worth a visit to get a round in. There is a diverse mix of challenges on the course, and each hole is accompanied by stunning surroundings. Factor in a fantastic club house where you can grab refreshments afterwards, and you are guaranteed a fantastic day out.
