Hesketh is the oldest golf club in Southport, established in 1885. The course is pre-dominantly links in nature and Championship golf has been played at Hesketh from the early days. In addition to being a previous qualifying venue when The Open was played at nearby Royal Birkdale, Hesketh has hosted many other professional and amateur championships. Most recently, it hosted the Junior Open in 2008 and co-hosted the Amateur Championship with near-by Hillside in 2011. The Club offers visiting golfers a series of open competitions including a weeklong golfing festival every August and a competitive range of golfing packages are available to visitors and societies alike. Hesketh is also home to the 'Golf Prize of Nations Trophy', an important piece of Hesketh’s history that celebrates the exploits of Hesketh’s Arnold Bentley and Bridlington’s Tommy Thirsk who won the Baden Baden golf event played in association with the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games.
