The Royal Birkdale Golf Club

Royal Birkdale needs no introduction, host to The Open, Ryder Cup, The PGA Match-Play and the Women’s British Open, ranked 3rd in the whole of England, Birkdale is one of the finest links in the world. Designed by Hawtree and Taylor this Par 72 championship course measures up to 6,900 yards. The course consists of forgiving flat fairways, rarely will your ball be thrown off the fairway, like many links, each hole is set between valleys of towering dunes meaning missing the middle, you can expect a high score. The greens are a great defence for the course, extremely difficult to read, and in immaculate condition all year round. Overall Royal Birkdale is a must play course for any keen golfer, and fantastic links course.
