Golf in Lancashire
Lancashire offers quite some great and renowned golf courses, like Royal Birkdale, Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, Formby and Hillside Golf Club. The best Lancashire golf courses - mostly links courses - can be found along the 'Lancashire Golf Coast' from Blackpool in the North to just above Liverpool. Visiting Lancashire for golf is a great idea and can easily be combined with a city trip to Blackpool, Liverpool or Manchester. If you are into walking and cycling as well, then Lancashire provides two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, including the majestic Pendle Hill, the world renowned for the tale of the Pendle Witches. The Forest of Bowland (AONB) is a beautiful landscape of remote fells, riverside rambles, stunning wildlife, heritage and a number of traditional Lancashire villages. Manchester Airport is the main airport in the region.

Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club
I've played here a few times, twice in the British Open. In 2009 and this year in August. Two completely different experiences. This course is very weather dependent. for most of the front nine you have out of bounds to your right (don't arrive with a slice), very challenging start with a long Par 3 followed by 2 difficult Par 4s. The back nine is quite scorable until you…
