With humble beginnings of just nine founding members and a small plot of land to build a nine-hole course, it did not take long for this forward-thinking club to transform its narrative; from a small, local golf club, to an international venue that has been graced by some of the world’s golfing elite. Beginning with a relocation to its current home, the golf club soon gained royal status and asserted its dominance in the world of golf.
To date, the Royal Birkdale in Southport has played host to an impressive list of competitions including the Walker Cup, Ryder Cup and several Open Championships. An array of inspiring champions have played on the course from Jack Nicklaus and Justin Rose to Yani Tseng and Dame Laura Davies.
