    There’s no doubt about it, Royal Birkdale is one of the best courses, if not the best course, in England. Founded in 1889, this iconic golfing facility has played host to The Open Championships eight times, most recently in 2008 when Padraig Harrington took the top-spot.

    When it first opened Royal Birkdale was solely a nine-hole course and it wasn't until 1894 when the clubs committee decided to extend it to a full eighteen holes. In the 1930s the course was renovated to a championship standard by FW Hawtree and JH Taylor. Up until 1951, the club was known only as Birkdale until King George VI gave the prestigious club royal charter, only for it to host its first open three years later. Since then, Royal Birkdale has only increased its glowing reputation.

    Royal Birkdale is always a challenging course, particularly when coastal winds are in full force. If you hit the fairways then you are in for a good round, but anything off of the fairways can land you in serious trouble. For any keen golfer, this is a must play and the perfect fit for a vacation to England’s famous golf coast.
