Golf in Blackpool

If you’re a keen golfer then make the most of your trip to Blackpool by heading to one of the top golf courses in and around the town.

Set among 236 acres of parkland, De Vere Herons’ Reach [map] offers a USGA specification golf course designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark. The par 72, 18-hole course has 10 lakes that provide a challenge to golfers of all levels, while the grounds also consist of an 18-bay floodlit driving range, pitching green, putting green, shop and Spike Bar for drinks and meals.

The golf facilities here are part of the four-star hotel and leisure resort, which offers the ideal golfing break in the Britain’s favourite holiday town.

Located on the A587 just behind the North Promenade, North Shore Golf Club [map] provides an 18-hole, 71-par course over undulating parkland. Visiting golfers are welcome here every day except Thursdays and Saturdays, and there's also a restaurant in the club where you can celebrate or commiserate your round.

You could also try Fleetwood Golf Club [map], which is situated on the Fylde Coast eight miles from Blackpool town centre. The 18-hole white course is 6,557 yards with a par 71, while the yellow course is 6,308 yards with a par 70. Visitors are welcome on weekdays.

For a scenic riverside course head to Knott End Golf Club [map], which has an 18-hole, par 68, course and a practice ground.

Although the courses mentioned above are all privately owned there are a couple of public courses in Blackpool, which are perfect for the casual golfer.

Poulton-le-Fylde Golf Club [map]) offers a parkland 12-hole, par 45, course, along with practice and putting facilities, while the council-run Stanley Park Golf Course [map] has 18 holes. This course, which was designed by the famous Dr Alistair McKenzie, was opened in 1926, and has been well maintained ever since. Lessons are available from the resident professional.

Heading further out of Blackpool to Lytham St Annes, you’ll find the seaside championship links course at Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club [map], where the British Open is held on occasions. The visitors' (Green) course is 6,334 yards with a par 72, the members' (Red) course is 6,685 yards with a par 73 and the championship (Blue) course is 6,870 yards with a par 74.

Another top venue not far from Blackpool Airport is St Annes Old Links Golf Club [map], which has an 18-hole, 6,616 yard, par 72, course. There are also practice putting and chipping greens here.

Other courses worth a mention here are Fairhaven Golf Club [map], which is situated eight miles from Blackpool, and Lytham Green Drive Golf Club [map], a flat parkland course also in Lytham St Annes.
