When it comes to links golf in the UK, there is arguably nowhere better to play than 10 time Open Championship and 2 time Ryder Cup host, Royal Birkdale Golf Club. Located in the beautiful town of Southport on the Northwest Coast of England, many view this stunning region of the country as the golfing capital.

Since gaining Royal golf course status from King George VI the club has been the setting for more Championship and International Tournaments than anywhere else in the world. In typical links fashion, the course provides a stringent test of every aspect of a golfer’s game and rewards good play but punishes careless shots. Royal Birkdale Golf Club offers some spectacular views during the round and if you aren’t playing as well as you’d like, then there are always these to enjoy.

With an Open Champion roster than includes Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, Tom Watson and Jordan Spieth, it is easy to see why Royal Birkdale is ranked amongst the world's best golf courses.
