England Golf Tours England's Open Championship Courses

England Golf Tours

Open venues in England are split into two geographical areas, Kent and the Merseyside / Lancashire coastline. While Kent only has one active course on the Open Rota, Princes and Royal Cinque Ports are former hosts and provide what many consider to be one of the finest England Golf Tours in the UK with all 3 courses just 15 minutes from each other (so close in places an out of bounds drive from Royal St George's can find itself at Princes). Those travelling to the North West of England can enjoy the very different layouts found at Royal Liverpool (Hoylake), Royal Birkdale and Royal Lytham & St Anne's which will create an excellent golfing tour.

Golf Courses

Royal Lytham & St Annes

Full practice facilities

Renowned as a course in which it is hard to scramble a good score, Royal Lytham & St. Annes has just the 174 bunkers peppering the fairways and surrounding the greens. 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. Royal Lytham & St Annes has hosted the Open Championship on 11 occasions.

Royal Liverpool - Hoylake

Full practice facilities

The Royal Liverpool Golf Club links at Hoylake can be beautiful, uplifting, challenging, and even daunting when the wind really blows and the summer rough is deep. The course was created to be a demanding test of golf and remains so, and lies at the very heart of the history and development of the game in Great Britain.

Hoylake makes the trickiest demands of a player’s shot selection, distance control and accuracy.

Royal Birkdale

Situated on the golden links of the North West coast in Southport, Royal Birkdale is possibly the finest of all courses in England.
