Did you know that England is home to around 2,000 golf courses? That’s more than Scotland, Wales and Ireland combined.
For the finest golf in England, look no further than the Northwest Coastline. With the Open rota trio of ‘Royals’ Royal Birkdale, Royal Lytham & St Annes and Royal Liverpool all situated within a short drive.
Southern England is known for its sunnier climate as well as golf courses, the top ones being Sunningdale, Swinley Forest and, of course, the Royal North Devon. Also in this region we have the vast St George’s Hill golf course and the Wentworth golf club in Surrey. Be sure to check out the Belfry course located near Birmingham, which was the host of several Ryder Cup tournaments.
England’s golfing history dates back to the 18th century, when the Royal Blackheath golf club, the first English golf club, was formed in 1766. The Royal North Devon golf course also opened in 1864 and the two are now among the oldest golf courses in the world. Since then, England has hosted some of the best golf tournaments, from the Open Championship to the Ryder Cup and numerous annual tour events.
The Sunningdale and Swinley Forest courses in Ascot, Royal St George’s course in Kent, which hosted the 2021 Open Championship, and the Royal Birkdale in Southport (voted the number one golf course in England) represent the best of England’s golf courses.
With a golf trip to England, you’ll have a chance to experience the breathtaking countryside views and an abundance of centuries-old architecture, including the iconic landmarks, Big Ben, Stonehenge, and Buckingham Palace. And let’s not forget about food and drink. Live like a local and prepare for a round with a hearty Full-English Breakfast, before quenching your thirst with a pint of cask ale in a local pub after the 18th hole.

There are around 2,000 golf courses in England, with some of these courses being centuries old, such as the Royal North Devon. England has more golf courses than the rest of the UK put together and there are some fantastic places to tee off in the South (known for being warmer and more temperate) and the Northwest coast (known for the “Royals” trio – the Royal Birkdale, Royal Lytham & St Annes, and the Royal Liverpool).
The best time of year to visit England for golfing is in the Summer season and the months from May to September will see the warmest weather. Winter can get very cold and temperatures drop in September, which is the start of the autumn season, and can also see a lot of rain, but can also be mild and dry depending on the year. June and July tend to be the warmest months in England and will also be when the courses are at their busiest.
You can book and fully customize your golf tour across England with Premier Golf, including visits to the popular regions and courses of the Northwest coast and the Southeast.
