Ten of the best Royal Golf Courses
Not every golf course gets the Royal stamp of approval, we've pulled together our top 10 well deserving courses that have. The question is, which one do you play first?
On the golden sands of the Southport’s golfing coast, you will find Royal Birkdale and what is arguably one of the most highly regarded venues on the Open Championship rota. The club was the last in England to be awarded Royal status in 1951 under the reign of King George VI, and was the only course he awarded this status. Since then it has been home to many of The Open’s most memorable moments.
With two courses to choose from, including the Open Championship hosting Championship Course, it comes as no surprise that this golf club has been awarded the Royal prefix. It was way back in 1892 under the reign of Queen Victoria that this club became a Royal, with the Duke of York (George V) being a Patron here.
