Golf in Northern England and Wales
The Lancashire coast is another which boasts a chain of golf courses stretching from the great city of Liverpool to the pleasant resort town of Southport, home to Royal Birkdale, which has proved a popular Open venue since first joining the rota in 1954. Other courses well worth playing include West Lancashire (founded in 1873) and Formby, as well as other Southport links, notably Hesketh, Hillside and Southport & Ainsdale.
The long welsh coastline has many fine links. The notable courses to the south of the country include Celtic Manor, host to the Ryder Cup in 2010. Royal Porthcawl, Pyle and Kenfig, Pennard and Tenby (the oldest golf course in Wales) are all dotted along the coast giving excellent links play conditions.
