Southport GC

Southport GC- hole 18Southport GC- hole 18 

 Southport Golf Club dates from 1924.

In the early days the club boasted a sporty little 9 hole course.

In 1948 the course expanded to 18 holes under the guidance of club captain E. F. Doyle.

 

Southport is a busy member's course, and has much to recommend it.

The course is very walkable, with tree lined fairways, and a dash of elevation change through the property.

It is beautfully bunkered, and has a liberal sprinkling of water hazards to keep you on your toes.

It is a good combination and makes for a most enjoyable round.

There are 5 par 3's at Southport and they dominate proceedings!

But the winding par 5 'hourglass hole' at hole 13 is the standout.

It is a ripping hole!

 

Notable holes include:

 

- hole 2, a short par 3 over water

I enjoyed my day at Southport.

It is a lovely walk, and an interesting course with plenty of variation.

Recommended!
