A true championship links, Hillside was overhauled by renowned architect Fred Hawtreein the 1960’s, Hillside is regarded as probably the finest links golf course not to have hosted the Open Championship.
Hillside Golf Club is situated within Southport known as he home of “Englands Golf Coast” located along England’s finest stretch of coastal links. Hillside Golf Club has hosted many amateur and professional tournaments and was recently selected by the DP World Tour to stage the 2022 Cazoo Classic following the hugely successful 2019 British Masters.
The layout of the course is balanced in two halves with the opening holes heading south westward along flat ground beside the railway line. The flatter nine holes on the opening are combined with a contrasting second nine where you will find valleyed corridors through some of the highest dunes found anywhere. The course measures just over 7000 yards meandering though picturesque scenery of Sandhills and tranquil pinewoods.

Set in the dunes near Southport, Royal Birkdale offers one of the finest links layouts anywhere in the UK. The greens are magnificent as you would expect but they seem to have been dropped in to the natural dunescape. Good shots are well rewarded but being less than accurate with your approach shots will find you on the banks of the dunes with a tricky up and down.

One of the toughest driving courses I have ever had the privilege to play! Formidable fairway bunkers truly the slightly off line tee shot. This is a golf course where you need to plot your way around, very often opting for the shorter club from the tee to avoid the bottle necks. World class “old greens” which as you walk on you feel the history and footsteps that have walked before you. One of the friendliest and welcoming clubhouses of all the Open venues, Royal Lytham is a must visit on your trip to North West England.

Recently returned to the Open Rota in 2014, the course plays out over the Hoylake flats of the Wirral estuary. The course features plenty of tall wispy fescues which frame the fairways of this gently undulating land. With several holes playing along the estuary the wind plays a major part in the challenge presented by Royal Liverpool. The history and memorabilia on display in the clubhouse is worth a visit on its own.
The History in these clubs is nothing short of spectacular, and the challenge presented by the courses is second to none.
