Royal Lytham & St. Anne's

Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club was founded in 1886, and the present Course was constructed in 1897. The Clubhouse celebrated its Centenary in 1998. It is one of the premier links courses in the world, host to eleven Open Championships, two Ryder Cups, and numerous other major tournaments, including the Women's and Senior's Open Championships and the Walker Cup in 2015. Northern hospitality has always been famous, and Royal Lytham leads the way. You will be made very welcome.

Royal Birkdale

Situated on the golden links of the northwest coast in Southport, Royal Birkdale is possibly the finest of all courses in England. Royal Birkdale Golf Club has been voted the number one golf club in England, one of the top five clubs in the UK, and amongst the top 35 in the world.

Royal Liverpool

Royal Liverpool was the inaugural men's amateur championship host in 1885, which became The Amateur Championship. In fact, it is Royal Liverpool Golf Club's contribution to the amateur game that has set it apart from all other clubs in England. Only six holes are in the dunes – otherwise there is little protection from the ever-changing wind. There is nothing artificial about the course. It represents a traditional, genuine test of golf.


A true championship links, overhauled in the 1960’s by renowned architect Fred Hawtree, Hillside is regarded as probably the finest links golf course not to have hosted the Open Championship. Still, the club has a track record of staging some of the highest profile professional and amateur tournaments, including the 1982 PGA Championship and twice the Amateur and Ladies Amateur Championships. The flatter nine holes of the opening half whet the golfer’s appetite for the contrast that awaits on second nine. Here you will find valleyed corridors through some of the highest and wildest dunes found anywhere.


Formby Golf Club is renowned for its beauty, its challenging links and ability to create memories that last a golfer’s lifetime. The course is unique in its layout with holes winding their way through towering sand dunes and tree lined pinewoods. Raised and tiered greens, undulating fairways, manicured surfaces and testing, thought-provoking holes greet the golfer ready for a challenge. The scenery is fabulous all around the course, so marvel in the views and embrace the quality and character of the course.
