Hesketh Golf Club

Southport, Merseyside

Cockle Dick`s Lane, Southport, Merseyside, PR9 9QQ, England

Hesketh is the oldest golf club in Southport, established in 1885. Part links and part parkland, it is set among the Victorian villas of a residential area at the northern end of South West Lancashire’s sand dune system. Another of the Northwest golf courses to be designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, Hesketh sits beside a nationally renowned nature reserve, the seabirds and other wildlife providing an added attraction for visitors.


The distinctive challenge of the course is that half of the holes meander through tall sand dunes, while the others border the Ribble estuary. Some of the best holes lie between the sandhills and the clubhouse, particularly the eighteenth which is long and a great finishing hole. The club offers visiting golfers a year-round series of open competitions, as well as hosting a week-long golfing festival. The clubhouse sits on the crest of a sandhill, overlooking the course and surrounding areas. Visitors are always given a warm welcome and the famous Bentley Room.

  • Number of holes: 18 holes
  • Par: 72
  • Yardage: 6324
