Royal Birkdale

Founded
George Low Jr., 1889/Fred Hawtree, 1932, 1932

Many of the game’s elite consider this course to be the fairest Open rota course. Birkdale boasts towering sandhills and no blind shots, as most of the holes roll through valleys. It has played host to 10 Opens, most recently Jordan Spieth’s remarkable win in 2017. (Down 6)
