We may be slightly biased, but the Wirral, Liverpool, Southport and Blackpool coastline is up there with the very best for golf courses anywhere in the world. As bucket-lists go, with three Open courses and numerous other links courses (seven courses are in the ‘Top 100 Courses of the UK & Ireland’ and 10 are listed in the ‘Top 100 Courses in England’), the area has gradually been attracting more and more international golfers.
Less visited than Scotland and Ireland, England has always found it hard to capture the ‘once in a lifetime’ inbound golf visitor. North Americans understandably head to the Home of Golf in Scotland, whilst the ‘craic’ of Ireland is well documented.
A few years ago, the coast rebranded as England’s Golf Coast and although Kent may disagree, you won’t find a selection of links courses like this anywhere in the country. And, as mentioned, with a slightly biased hat on, anywhere in the world. Combined, Royal Lytham & St Annes, Royal Birkdale and Royal Liverpool have hosted 33 Opens!
On top of all that, Liverpool or Southport are fun places to stay. Both have changed massively over the past 10 to 15 years and offer a variety of great accommodation for all budgets and international dining.
To base yourselves in Liverpool for a week and play six links golf courses, eat well, stay out late, visit the famous Liverpool museums, the two football grounds, the Beatles sights and, most importantly enjoy the warm Liverpool hospitality, is hard to beat.
