The Beatles Golf Tour

Enjoy The Beatles themed Hard Days Night Hotel and play the best links courses in England

  • Liverpool is one of the most iconic cities in the UK, synonymous with The Beatles, the Titanic and soccer. In 2007 it celebrated its 800th anniversary and in 2008 it was nominated as the European Capital of Culture.

    The golf in this area is also sensational, with the stretch of NW England between Liverpool and Blackpool known as 'England's Golf Coast'. Regularly on The Open Championship rota, the 3 Royals of Birkdale, Lytham and Liverpool (Hoylake) are every bit as good as any links courses in Scotland or Ireland. The great thing here is that they are all in such close proximity to each other, along with multiple other incredible links tracks such as Formby, Hillside, West Lancs and Hesketh.

    Staying at the Hard Days Night Hotel will give you a nice Beatles twist to your trip. Filled with artwork and furnishings reflective of the 'Fab Four' and located in the heart of Liverpool's 'Beatles Corner' next to the Cavern Club where they rose to fame.

  • Tee Times
    Many of the golf courses you will wish to play are private golf clubs and therefore have limited tee times and restrictions on visitor play. Often demand outstrips supply, so it is never too early to begin planning your golf vacation.

    Attire in Golf Clubhouses
    Most golf clubs allow visitors to use their clubhouse facilities, including the locker rooms and dining areas. Over the last decade, golf clubs have relaxed their dress codes, however we recommend taking a pair of street shoes (not sneakers) to avoid any issues. 

    Caddies and Carts
    The majority of the links courses have caddies available because, traditionally, they are walking courses, however we will often need to book them in advance for you. Caddies are self-employed and supply can change on a daily basis. 

    With regards golf carts, these can be hard to come by on the traditional links courses and in some cases do not even exist! As with caddies, please request carts at the time of booking with us and we will do our best to reserve them for you.

    Practice Facilities
    These are not quite as abundant as they are at US golf courses, and you may struggle to find a practice range (or a conveniently located one) at the great, classic links courses in the UK and Ireland. Even if you do manage to find one, don’t be surprised if you have to purchase range ball tokens from the Pro Shop and self-serve!

    Halfway Houses and Beverage Carts
    Most of these great links golf courses were designed to play nine holes out (away from the clubhouse) followed by nine holes back, with no halfway house. Be prepared to carry refreshments in your golf bag to keep you going for the whole round. Similarly, there are very few (if any) beverage/refreshment carts at these courses as it is not customary to drink alcohol whilst playing golf in the UK and Ireland.

    Handicap Restrictions
    Many of the golf courses have handicap restrictions for visiting golfers and will require to see official proof of your handicap. The primary reason for this is to ensure only seasoned golfers visit these courses and don’t hold up play.

    The Weather
    The weather in this part of the world can be unpredictable, and you do need to be prepared for all kinds at any time of year. Having said that, in order to get the full UK and Ireland golf experience, every golfer should relish a dose of challenging weather at least once during their stay!

    Although it is possible to play golf year-round, we view April as the start of the season. For the avid golfer who is looking to play 36 holes (or more) in one day, June and July have the longest daylight hours with play possible until 10pm!
