Season Sixteen Final - Royal Birkdale Golf Club
Situated on the golden links of the North West coast in Southport, Royal Birkdale is possibly the finest of all courses in England. Royal Birkdale has held more Championship and International events since World War 2 than any other course in the world. Open Championships, Ryder Cups, Women's British Opens, Senior Opens, Amateur Championships, Walker Cups and Curtis Cups.
Starting life as a 9-hole layout in 1889, the course was known purely as Birkdale until King George VI gave it its royal charter in 1951. Most famous for its position on the Open Rosta, Royal Birkdale has hosted no few than 10 Open Championships, the most recent in 2017 when Jordan Spieth took home the Claret Jug.
Recognised for its fairness, it’s often said if you hit fairways the ball tends to stay there, yet it is still deemed an incredible test of golf, and when the wind is blowing with waves crashing on the beach, even the very best golfers can succumb to this majestic course.
Royal Birkdale Golf Club has been voted the number one golf club in England, one of the top five clubs in the UK and amongst the top 35 in the world. Visitors are assured of a warm welcome on and off the course delivering a golfing experience second to none.
Royal Birkdale will host our second day fourballs, and with Ryder Cup history at the venue which saw one US win and the first ever Ryder Cup draw, our finalists will get the chance to add their own little bit of history to this iconic venue.
