Golf breaks in Southport - England's Golf Coast

Being located at the heart of England's Golf Coast, Southport is known worldwide as one of the very best destinations for an English golf tour.

The lively town is right amongst these courses and is usually abuzz with golfers from across the globe here to play on some of the region’s most notable courses such as Royal Birkdale, Hillside and Southport & Ainsdale.

Although golfers shouldn’t overlook some of the lesser-known courses, which may not have the renown of the other courses but are no less because of it.
