Hesketh is the oldest golf club of any in the Southport area, dating back to 1885. Since then, it has established a reputation as one of the best courses around, and a testament to this is its consistent selection as the host for final qualifying when the Open Championship is staged at nearby Royal Birkdale.
Hesketh is not a traditional links course, but can be viewed almost in two separate halves; part of the layout features superb holes that are carved through the towering sand dunes, while the remainder borders the Ribble Estuary. This diversity makes Hesketh an intriguing challenge, where visitors must build up to the formidable closing stretch, where consecutive par-5s to finish can either make or break a scorecard.
Recent alterations by the esteemed Hawtree Design team have made Hesketh more relevant to the modern game, and emphasised its position as one of the best on the Southport tour.
Be brave at the back-to-back par-5s to finish, where you can make or break your scorecard.

A lovely set up, great location. The fairways were a little scruffy in places and the greens had recently been seeded so not as fast as they normally are.
Average course but a good warm up
