This golf vacation takes you on a journey to three ‘Royal’ links. From Arnold Palmer and Jordan Spieth’s famous moments at majestic Royal Birkdale, to Ernie Els and Seve Ballesteros’ heroics at Royal Lytham & St Annes.

Not to mention Royal Liverpool at Hoylake, host venue for the 2023 Open Championship, where the summer rough will test you like it did Tiger, Rory and Bobby Jones when they each lifted the Claret Jug at this historic links. It’s also where JB Carr won his first Amateur Championship in 1953.

The championship links experience doesn’t stop at these three Open venues. The James Braid-designed Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club is a joyful links experience. Home to the famous Ryder Cup Room, the renovated clubhouse contains a room dedicated to memorabilia from when ‘S&A’ twice hosted The Ryder Cup in 1933 and 1937.
