The Open Championship venues include, Royal St George where the Open took place in 2011, Royal Liverpool, Royal Lytham St Annes and Royal Birkdale which was the most recent venue to hold the Open Championship.

Towards London and the South East, the hustle and bustle of England gives way to perfect golfing retreats tucked away with luxury resorts. Combined with great golf, these resorts offer the perfect weekend escape.
