Lytham Golf Club
Featured Golf Course -
Royal Lytham Golf Club
LYTHAM GOLF CLUB is one of the most famous golf courses
in the world. Founded in 1886, it is situated in the lovely
coastal resort of St. Annes and is the venue for the 2012
BRITISH OPEN GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP. ROYAL LYTHAM
has been the proud host of Ten BRITISH OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS,
two Ryder Cups and many other major tournaments including
being host to the Walker Cup in 2015.
The golf course is conveniently accessible from all the main
Northern England motorway networks and when on your Southport
golf holidays it is about a 50 minute drive from your Southport
it is still a fair distance from the actual sea, ROYAL
LYTHAM is still close enough for the coastal winds
to have an affect on the golfer who is not comfortable playing
in windy conditions. It has been described by one eminent
golf journalist as "a beast of a course, but just a beast"
ROYAL LYTHAM golf course has remained mostly
in its original layout with just a few improvements to the
course over the last 100 years or so, thus adding to the history
and tradition of this premier golf course.
Southport definitely recommends playing this
famous course as part of your Southport golfing holiday. Golf
Southport also recommends that you play our
"3 Royals" package where you can
play ROYAL LYTHAM, ROYAL
BIRKDALE and ROYAL
LIVERPOOL, as all 3 courses are within a short drive from
the golfing heaven of Southport.
The staff at Golf Southport
will be delighted to organise your visit to ROYAL
LYTHAM (including transport
if necessary) and also any other required arrangements on
your Southport golf holidays.
