Southport Old Links Golf Club

Southport, Merseyside

Moss Lane, , Southport, Merseyside, PR9 7QS, England

Southport Old Links Golf Club, despite not being the biggest or best-known golf course in Southport, is still one of the oldest, with the quality to match its famous neighbours. Golf was first played here in 1892, before many of the larger / more famous clubs had their first monthly medal or cut the fairways with their horse-drawn mowers for the first time.

The present Club was formed in 1926 when a Limited Liability Company was floated to take over the assets of the former Club. Southport Old Links Limited was wound up and de-registered as a company in May 1997. Now it is a member owned Club.

Playing from alternate tees, this 9 hole course gives a genuine feeling of 18 holes of interesting and enjoyable golf.


Situated less than 2 miles inland from Southport’s Beach and Promenade, Southport Old Links is easily accessible. It is a lovely intimate links-parkland course, surrounded by birch trees with views eastwards across the Lancashire plain to distant hills. The course measures 6,461 yards, par 72 for men and 5,707 yards, par 73 for ladies and is a fair, challenging and enjoyable test for all levels of golfer. Although only 9 holes it has 18 very different tees that give the feel of a true 18 hole course. The length of many of the holes is king sized, a truly demanding test of golf and a delightful golfing experience.
