Our 36 hole Lancashire Links event takes in two of this famous golfing region’s finest courses. West Lancashire is an Open Qualifying venue offering a true links test. Southport & Ainsdale has twice hosted the Ryder Cup in its illustrious history, and is held in high regard by everyone who has the pleasure of playing it.
We get underway at West Lancashire, and our competitors are highly likely to be faced with firm and fast playing conditions – exactly how links golf should be played. There are many memorable holes on this challenging layout, not least the four par 3s which will be the key to posting a good opening round score.
You can be sure that every aspect of your game will be tested at S&A and with such a variety of interesting holes it is easy to see why S&A is so highly regarded. Designed by James Braid, the course winds its way amongst the sand dunes and is known for being in fine condition all year round.
We have teamed up with some local accommodation providers to offer our Links Golf Cup competitors discounted room rates when staying in the area for the week of the event. These preferential rates are only available when booking through Hybrid Golf, the event organisers, and not directly with the hotels themselves.
The Bliss Hotel is a luxury 4-star hotel set a short distance from our two Links Golf Salver courses in the heart of Southport’s waterfront development. All rooms are lavishly designed with bespoke furniture providing guests with a comfortable home away from home.
Rates for B&B vary depending on room options, email firstname.lastname@example.org for full details.
