The Mixed Pairs Cup was first staged in 2017 at three fantastic links on the Southport coast. The emphasis is always on fun and enjoyment as well as the golf, and the event has proved very popular with couples from across the UK and beyond who want to socialise with other like-minded golfers.
The course at Hillside meanders through majestic sandhills and tranquil pinewoods and is set as two loops of nine – the second of which was described by Greg Norman as ‘the best in Britain’. It is easy to see why these holes are so highly regarded, as they weave their way through some of the highest and wildest dunes in the region. Without question, Hillside offers links golf at it’s finest.
Southport & Ainsdale is a two-time former Ryder Cup venue and regularly ranked among the UK’s Top 100 Courses. The course has played host to Final Qualifying on many occasions, as well as numerous other important events over the years. One of James Braid’s fine creations, S&A is a true championship links where accuracy is often more important than length, as the sea breeze, heather, gorse and sand hills combine to provide our final day test.
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.
