Play a Round of Golf

Southport Golf LinksNo trip to Southport is complete without at least mentioning that it is part of the country's golf capital. 

Royal BirkdaleHillside, Formby, Hesketh, Southport & Ainsdale, Formby Hall, Formby Ladies and West Lancashire Golf Clubs are all just a short train ride away.

Southport also has a municipal golf course. The course was originally opened in 1912 as a 9 hole course on reclaimed land bordering the Irish Sea. During the 1930's more land was reclaimed and it was extended to an 18-hole course. The designer of which was Harry Shapland Colt who was one of the worlds leading golf course architects of his generation.

Sefton Council have invested heavily in the golf course to meet the challenges of new golf club and ball technology.
