International Golf Tours
Cultural and Historical Opportunities - Celebrating Anglo-American Hospitality
The North West of England is one of the great golfing secrets of the western world. Often called the “Golf Coast” North West England, has three British Open courses all within 25 miles of your host hotel. These three courses are Royal Lythm St. Annes, Royal Birkdale, and Royal Liverpool. All three courses date back to the nineteenth century, and are the Jewell in the Crown of English golf.
In addition they are complimented by four Open qualifying courses, Hesketh, Hillside, “Southport and Ainsdale” and West Lancashire. Situated in the English counties of Cheshire and Lancashire these courses comprise the finest grouping of golf courses, possibly, on the globe.
In addition to the challenges of Open Championship golf, our guests will be treated to the social, cultural and historical flavor of this enormously interesting part of Britain. At the heart of the triumvirate of Open courses is the port city of Liverpool. Liverpool, has been enormously important in the ties between the USA and England and served as the home of the Confederate embassy to the UK during the American civil. At one time the most active port city in the British Empire, Liverpool suffered badly in the second World War and was the second most heavily bombed city after London.
For lovers of music there is also the opportunity to visit the Beatles Trail tracking the historical journey of the Fab Four in their early Liverpool years. Although the years of cotton importation are long gone, Liverpool’s wealth owes much to the United States and her history and development is forever intertwined with North America.
