Located in the popular beach town in northwest England, Southport & Ainsdale is located near Royal Birkdale, but holds its own with some notable design elements. The bunker-less par 3, 8th is generally regarded as a standout, with a raised table top green repelling mishit shots and providing challenging approach shots. Where Birkdale is a difficult, challenging golf course notable for the events hosted, this James Braid golf course is sporty, unique, and fun, providing a brilliant experience in itself.
