Jack Nicklaus called the back nine of Hillside golf course the finest he had ever played. The Hillside Golf Club in Southport England, next door to Royal Birkdale on the Merseyside coast, a roller-coaster of a back nine with arguably even larger dunes than its esteemed neighbour. Hillside Golf Club is actually ranked in the top 25 courses in all the British Isles, but is relatively unknown internationally because it has never hosted the Open. Hillside Golf Club is though one of the best, if not the very best, of the Open Championship final qualifying venues, and Hillside Golf Club has also hosted the Amateur Championship and numerous European Tour events. What a great number of golf courses there is indeed here on the Northwest coast in England, indulge yourself and include a round at Hillside Golf Club.
