Royal Lytham & St Anne’s

 

Transfer time: 1 hour and 10 minutes

 

Play Royal Lytham & St Anne’s is arguably the toughest of England’s championship links courses. Unusual for British links, it does not sit beside the sea. Its main defense is the vast number of deep bunkers guarding both the fairways, as well as the greens. It enjoys a very special atmosphere. It was here in 1926 when Bobby Jones won the British Open Championship. His legendary shot to the 17th green is commemorated by a plaque.

Royal Liverpool

 

Golf today on Royal Liverpool. Recently returned to the British Open rota as the venue for the 2006 Championship, and hosted again in 2014. Despite its somewhat flat and benign appearance, Royal Liverpool is among the toughest and most demanding of the great seaside championship links of Britain. Hoylake, as it is more commonly known, lies at the very heart of the history and development of golf in Britain. Built in 1869, on what was then the race course of the Liverpool Hunt Club, Hoylake is one of the oldest English seaside courses.

 

*We can arrange a tour of Anfield before or after your round today. Details and prices in due course.

13th October

Royal Birkdale

 

Golf on Royal Birkdale provides a formidable test of links golf and fully deserves its recognition as a true venue for the Open Championship. Each hole runs in valleys between towering sandhills. The problems are clearly stated – if you stray from the fairway, the buckthorn and scrub can be demanding. It’s consistently ranked as the finest links course in England.

Old Course of St. Andrews

WE HAVE 12 GUAREENTEED OLD COURSE TEE TIMES HELD UNTIL 31 JULY 2019

 

Today, challenge the Old Course of St. Andrews, the “Home of Golf.” The Old Course has played host to the greatest golfers in the world and produced many of golf’s dramatic moments. Wide double fairways, seven extensive double greens, and a multitude of intimidating bunkers are just some of the unique features you will encounter. Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods each hoisted the Claret Jug on two occasions here. Bobby Jones claimed the Open Championship here as well. Negotiating the Valley of Sin at the short par 4 18th always makes for a tasty finish.

Kingsbarns

 

Today, play Kingsbarns. Its historical origins date back to 1793. Its sandy, links land soils are the basis for this heritage, and produce the fine-bladed fescues which are the cornerstone of fast and firm playing surfaces that characterise links golf. Designed by Kyle Phillips and opened anew in 2000, its rebirth has been shared with golfers from near and far with outstanding reviews. The links features spacious rolling fairways, large greens, and exceptional sea views on every hole. It’s a challenging yet enjoyable champion-standard traditional Scottish links course.

Carnoustie

 

Today, play Carnoustie. With its thick rough and devilish bunkers, Carnoustie is known as one of the world’s most challenging links courses and considered by many to be the most challenging of all Open venues. While the links is relatively flat it is exposed to the elements, a combination of length and accuracy are required from the tee to avoid the clever placement of the fairway bunkers. Approach shots demand precision to greens heavily guarded by steep bunkers and burns. It’s arguably the toughest and most memorable finishing holes in championship golf. A state-of-the-art clubhouse facility was completed in time for the 2018 Open Championship, containing seven Foresight simulators and the excellent Rookery.

Western Gailes

 

Transfer from St Andrews to Western Gailes GC: 2 hours and 40 minutes

 

Play today at Western Gailes, rated by many visitors to Scotland as its finest “unknown,” and perhaps its most enjoyable. The course relies on natural defenses created by the sand dunes and wind. It’s a traditional links layout that plays in a loop with its toughest stretch along the banks of the dunes that generally plays into the prevailing wind.

 

Hotel accommodation: Trump Turnberry

 

The world-renowned Trump Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, overlooks Scotland’s South West Ayrshire coast. Contained within 360 acres, this luxury hotel, golf and leisure resort has few equals in the world. Turnberry’s spectacular Ailsa course was chosen for The Open in 1977, 1986, 1994 and 2009. The Hotel was built at the turn of the century and underwent a complete renovation, restoration and remodeling of all guestrooms, suites, corridors, restaurants and public spaces that was completed in June 2016. The famous Ailsa Course was also overhauled with significant changes made to the links, including incredible improvements from holes 9 to 11. The changes are set to further enhance its reputation as one of the finest links courses in the world. Turnberry has a lavish spa, with indoor and outdoor amenities, which reopened in 2017. Nearby are riding stables, sea and river fishing, rough shooting, stalking, and trap shooting.

Royal Troon

 

Today, play Royal Troon. It’s a nine-time venue of the British Open, the course most recently hosted The Open in 2016. It’s consistently praised for its testing but fair set-up. A long and demanding links, Troon unusually boasts both the longest and the shortest holes in Open Championship golf, being the Postage Stamp 8th at 126 yards, and the 6th at 577 yards 6th named Turnberry.

Ailsa Course

 

Play the Ailsa Course at Turnberry. The course has undergone a re-development and re-opened with a stunning new layout in June 2016, lying on a spectacular curve of rock-bound coast in the southern reaches of Ayrshire. The course now makes the most of the coastal scenery, especially from the 4th through the 11th, passing the famous landmark lighthouse at the turn, which is now a stunning halfway house. This is a demanding links course, and an ever-present wind will make for a tough examination of your golfing skills. In 2009, the Ailsa Course hosted the Open Championship for the 4th time when golfing legend Tom Watson lost out to Stewart Cink in a playoff for the Claret Jug.
