Royal Birkdale Golf Club is considered to be one of Britain's best courses. Located in the seaside town of Southport situated along the northwest coast, Royal Birkdale provides a prime example of classic links golf. The course has hosted several golf championships, most notably it was the stage for the Open Championship on nine occasions and hosts the event again in 2017. The layout weaves through a landscape of high dunes and incorporates numerous strategically placed bunkers throughout. The long and narrow 15th hole, one of the layout's toughest, has 15 bunkers to be negotiated. There are no doubt some tricky holes, but the relatively flat fairways are fair and the tees offer clear views of the challenges ahead. Royal Birkdale's final hole is a long par 4 with out-of-bounds to the right and a long second shot to a heavily bunkered green.
