Royal Birkdale Golf Club

Royal Birkdale Golf Club is a golf course in the town of Southport, England, and is one of the clubs in the Open Championship rotation for both men and women. The club has hosted the men's championship nine times since 1954, most recently in July 2008, and has hosted the women's tournament five times, including 2010. Previous winners of the Open at Royal Birkdale are Pádraig Harrington, Mark O'Meara, Ian Baker-Finch, Tom Watson, Johnny Miller, Lee Trevino, Arnold Palmer and Peter Thomson (on two separate occasions). The course is unique[citation needed] in that no two holes face in the same direction, giving obvious problems on the notoriously windy days prevalent to any links.

Royal Birkdale has also hosted the Ryder Cup, the Walker Cup, and the Curtis Cup.
