Ranked #80 in Top 100 Golf Courses in England

The majestic fairways and carpet-smooth greens of The Brabazon form a world-famous stage on which some of golf’s most exhilarating dramas have played out. Its meticulous design involves tight fairways, perilous bunkers, lakes and fast undulating greens that have challenged some of golf’s greatest players.

As you’d expect, it’s a challenging golf course, but a must-play for anyone who’s serious about the sport. Walk in the footsteps of golfing legends – Seve’s historic drive onto the 10th green, Sam Torrance’s famous putt that won the 1985 Ryder Cup match for the European Team or Christie O’Connor Jr’s belligerent 2 iron across the lake at the 18th. More recent changes have seen the 6th hole become one of the most demanding, rated highly by modern-day great Lee Westwood.



Opening for play in 1997, the Dave Thomas-designed PGA National course was the first course in Europe to carry the PGA branding.

With its inland links appearance, this championship golf course presents a unique challenge with fast running fairways, undulating greens, severe run-offs and its 70 strategically placed cavernous bunkers. Hosting two European Tour golf events, the PGA National is fast becoming one of the top golf courses in the United Kingdom. Recognised by the PGA as a world-class tournament course, and the only PGA golf course in England, it is a must for golfers who enjoy the creativity required for links golf.


Ranked #23 in Top 100 Golf Courses in England

A true championship links, Hillside is regarded as the finest links golf course not to have hosted the Open Championship. 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. A regular Final Qualifying venue for the Open, Hillside has recently hosted the 2019 British Masters.

Hillside Golf Club is actually ranked in the top 25 courses in all the British Isles, but is relatively unknown internationally because it has never hosted the Open. The club is one of the very best of the Open Championship final qualifying venues, and has also hosted the Amateur Championship and numerous European Tour events. And you won’t believe how spectacular the back nine is, as good as Royal Birkdale is, it is not uncommon to hear someone say they think Hillside Golf Club is the better course.


Ranked #18 in Top 100 Golf Courses in England

Formby Golf Club was founded in 1884, originally with a nine-hole course in play for the members. In 1912, Willie Park Junior established the original 18-hole layout and it was altered by James Braid in 1922 and Harry Colt in 1933. Today's layout now measures more than 7,000 yards from the tips.

Play Formby when you have been sufficiently beaten up by the other windy links courses around Liverpool and Southport, but don’t be fooled into thinking that this course is easy. It certainly is not. Bunkering is strategic, the undulating fairways are very much links-like, the rough is strewn with heather and the pines provide an element of park-like protection from the wind. Formby will suit both links lovers and the player who prefers the softness of inland golf; both these camps will arrive contentedly at the 19th hole.

Formby has hosted a number of important amateur events over the years and played host to the 2004 Curtis Cup and has hosted. The Amateur Championship on three occasions.



Ranked #38 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

Designed by George Lowe, Royal Birkdale as we now know it was opened in 1897. In the 1930s, the course was remodelled and upgraded to championship standards by F.G. Hawtree and J.H. Taylor.

The club was simply known as Birkdale until 1951 when King George VI bestowed the royal charter on the club. Royal Birkdale Golf Club has hosted all the important events—the Ryder Cup, Walker Cup, Curtis Cup, Ladies British Open Championship. The British Open Championship has been hosted at Birkdale no fewer than nine times (most recently in 2008).

It truly is a famous links and widely recognized for its fairness. If you hit the fairways, rarely will the ball be thrown off course. The fairways are laid out in the flat-bottomed valleys between the towering dunes. These dunes, in turn, provide superb viewing platforms for spectators.


Ranked #15 in Top 100 Golf Courses in England

Hoylake, as it is called by those in the know, has a long and illustrious history of playing host to the Open Championship and has now staged twelve, its first in 1897. Founded in 1869, Hoylake is the second oldest seaside links course in England – only Royal North Devon is older.

George Morris, brother of Old Tom, and Robert Chambers originally laid out a 9-hole course on the site of a racecourse and for the first seven years, golfers shared the land with members of the Liverpool Hunt Club. Three extra holes were soon added and in 1871, the course was extended to 18 holes. In 1872, the club received royal patronage from Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught.

Without doubt, Royal Liverpool is a tough links. 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 and after 39 years away, The Open Championship returned to Hoylake in 2006, with Tiger Woods the winner.



Ranked #54 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club was founded in 1886 and the present Course 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 Seniors Open Championships and the Walker Cup in 2015.

Royal Lytham & St. Annes has 174 bunkers peppering the fairways and surrounding the greens. Although the not the longest of Championship courses, it is one where careful thought and accurate shots are essential. It is not a conventionally beautiful golf course as it is surrounded by suburban housing and flanked by a railway line, but it has a charm all of its own. It is a Links Course that is a long way from the sea yet close enough for the sea breeze to have an effect on one's game.




The award-winning hotel is situated in the heart of the country in Royal Sutton Coldfield, North Warwickshire. The resort has 300+ luxurious bedrooms and suites, several restaurants and bars, events and meetings spaces, a leisure club and The Belfry Spa. The three golf courses, including The Brabazon and PGA National, are recognized as world-class, having previously hosted The Ryder Cup more than any other venue in the world and home to this years Betfred British Masters.

Each room include amenities such as HD Freeview widescreen TV, easy walk-in shower, complimentary toiletries, hairdryer, 24-hour room service, tea/coffee making facilities, and direct dial telephone will all be available to ensure your stay is as enjoyable and memorable as can be.


This stylish 4-star boutique hotel is in city center and is just a 10 minute walk to the beach in Southport.  The chic surroundings include 59 guest rooms, a restaurant, pub, 6th floor gym and well-appointed finishes. The Vincent Hotel is on Southport's main shopping street and is just a one minute walk from Southport Rail Station.

Complementary Wi-Fi, luxurious bed linens, a flatscreen TV with Sky Sports and sleek bathrooms are featured in the air-conditioned guest rooms. The penthouse also features a private steam room and outdoor cast iron double bath.

The V Cafe and Restaurant offers a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu and has its own blend of fresh coffees. Guests may also enjoy the Vincents cocktail bar, which offers a variety of draft beers and inventive cocktails.
