My wife and I were privileged to play Southport & Ainsdale (S&A) Tuesday 22 July. The golf course was superb in every respect and in excellent condition. The professional staff were highly accommodating, including the starter who introduced us to the lady captain and her golf partner who were playing two groups ahead of us. The course is most interesting,... More

After playing Royal Birkdale and Lytham earlier in the week, I can firmly say that S&A is equal if not better when it comes to a links course. Like Lytham, this course starts off with a fun par three, and then you are off to the races. #17 is a monster, and you better make sure your drive is deep... More

The course was in great shape and the people in the clubhouse and bar area were really nice and welcoming. Went with the golf society and everyone agreed it was the best course of the three we played

The course was looking great on a chilly December day. Im not a member yet but really enjoyed my day out there. There is nothing wrong the course as previous person stated and is far from a muni.

Played twice round and want wait to return, some fantastic holes that reward good golf shots. Clubhouse is a perfect place to sit, eat and drink before and after and watch the 1st tee and 18th green. All staff and members very friendly and helpful, will return play again.

Fabulous course although not so easy. I play off 22 but can hit a good drive and some of the carries are long. It was tough but worth it. Would definitely recommend.
