Welcome to England’s Golf Coast – home to the world’s highest concentration of championship links courses. England’s Golf Coast embraces a spectacular stretch of Northwest England from Cumbria and the Lake District in the North to Wirral and Cheshire in the South
It includes three of the top 20 and seven of the top 36 courses in the UK and Ireland. Three England’s Golf Coast venues are among the world’s top 75.
These are some of the UK's most challenging and daunting golf courses located on some of the most naturally beautiful coastline in Britian.
England’s Golf Coast is home to no fewer than three famous Royal links courses – Birkdale, Liverpool and Lytham & St Annes. Together these world-renowned venues have hosted the Open Championship no fewer than 29 times since 1897.
The combination of sea, sand and the forces of nature offer an irresistible challenge – not just for those testing their skils at the three famous Royals – but for players ventuing out on such beautiful courses as Silloth in Cumbria or Southport & Ainsdale, (the first course to stage two Ryder Cups), and nearby Hillside, sometimes regarded as the best links never to have hosted the Open.
The lively and cosmopolitan cities of Manchester and Liverpool provide the perfect urban contrast to the region’s spectacular coastal courses, while England’s golfing capital Southport, or the beauty of the Lake District, the bright lights of Blackpool and the charm of Roman Chester are all within easy reach of some of the finest courses to be played along England’s Golf Coast.
