Winners of The Open here include some of the greatest golfers of all time, such as Tom Watson, Lee Trevino and Arnold Palmer. The course has hosted the women’s Open six times and the Senior Open Championship in 2013. Birkdale has also been host to the Ryder Cup (1965, 1969), Walker Cup (1951) and Curtis Cup (1948).
A visit to Royal Birkdale is a fantastic experience. You will undoubtedly enjoy the challenge of playing this wonderful golf course. If you keep the ball straight, in amongst the towering dunes, you have a chance to shoot a good score. It is a very fair course with excellent greens and plenty of chances for birdies.
