Royal Birkdale Golf Club

Waterloo Road, Birkdale, Southport, Merseyside, PR8 2LX

A permanent fixture on The Open rota and host to the Walker Cup, the Curtis Cup and the Ryder Cup, undoubtedly one of the finest links courses in England. Became Royal Birkdale in 1951. A plaque on the 16th hole commemorates Arnold Palmer's great shot in vile weather on the way to his Open win 1961. The course spans 6,690 yards, has been ranked 12th in the world, a famous links recognised for its fairness. Fairways, laid out in the flat valleys between the towering dunes seldom divert the ball off course. The greens, re-built before the 1998 Open, possess cunning borrows. Every hole is a classic and the challenge is apparent from every tee. The 183-yard 12th par three requires a tee-shot across a hollow avoiding four deep pot bunkers to a small raised green.

The Top Ten Links Courses in England and Wales by Roderick Easdale

"This Open venue has twice hosted the Ryder Cup, including in 1969 when in an act of sportsmanship, Jack Nicklaus conceded a putt on 18 to Tony Jacklin, thus halving the overall match. The course flows between and below large dunes along fairly flat valleys, with elevated tees giving a clear sight of the immediate challenges ahead."
