Hillside Golf Club
Golf Southport is delighted to introduce HILLSIDE
GOLF CLUB as a course worthy of serious consideration
on your golf holidays in Southport.
described as one of the best courses never to have hosted
the British Open, HILLSIDE is a must play
course for any avid golfer. Situated right alongside it's
illustrious neighbour ROYAL
BIRKDALE it is a serious test of golf and is also used
as a British Open Qualifier. Right from the very first tee
you will be tested, as a wayward drive too far left will put
your shot on to the railway line which runs between Liverpool
and Southport. Although it requires concentration and accuracy
off the tees it is also a very fair course with a lot of wide
fairways, suitable for golfers of most handicaps.
is a mixture of both parkland and links, and on the 11th tee
the views towards both ROYAL
BIRKDALE to the right and SOUTHPORT
AND AINSDALE to the left are stunning. Greg Norman once
described the back nine holes as being the best back nine
golfing holes in Europe.
On the par 3 tenth hole, depending on the weather you can
play anything from an eight iron to a wood and any shot to
the left or right of the hole will put you in woods which
are really difficult to recover from. In Medal play this hole
can be a "card wrecker" so accuracy is a must.
the holes have something different to offer and on your walk
round the course, alongside the stunning views, the course
is also alive to various forms of wildlife.
After your round why not enjoy the surroundings of the recently
renovated clubhouse where you will be assured of a very warm
welcome from both the friendly bar staff and members.
