At Southport Golf Academy you can be assured of a friendly welcome.

It is the ideal place to begin the game, or to improve and develop your skills on either our manicured Par 3 (one par 4!) golf course or covered driving range. Expert golf tuition is delivered daily by our fully qualified PGA Professionals ensuring you the best possible start in the game, or giving you the knowledge to take your game to the next level whatever standard you are.


Located at Mere Brow just North of Southport, the core of England’s ‘Golf Coast’,  the academy is within striking distance of arguably some of the best golf links in the country. Our job is to provide the facilities necessary to gain the knowledge and skills needed to take advantage of these fantastic venues. With 20 bays of covered and floodlit driving range with the best in full percentage premium range balls, a floodlit practice putting green, a practice short game area and teaching facilities, the academy provides the perfect environment to develop your game all year round.


A brand new challenging layout awaits you on our course, with every hole offering a different test. With new tees using state of the art surfaces, increased hole lengths and increased use of the natural growth of the greenery since the course was first designed, ensure golfers at any standard can enjoy the challenge.

Two tier greens built to USPGA specifications and riveted bunkers will provide a stern examination for the accomplished golfer, water hazards and the addition of over 500 trees give the new golfer a stimulating environment to learn the game over a manageable 1'515 yard nine-hole golf course.

"Here at Southport Golf Academy, our objective is to provide a teaching and practice facility for golfers of all ages and all abilities. We aim to not only improve playing skills, but for our clients to understand the rules of the game, the standards of behaviour acceptable, and the etiquette and honesty synonymous with the great game of golf”



During 2011/12 improvements to the facilities and the golf course weren  made and now provide members, their guests and all visitors with a good quality course as well as up to date advice on golf equipment, a bespoke club fitting service and repairs, plus state of the art coaching tools including instant video analysis. Our PGA trained golf coaches ( three are permenantly based here)  offer individual or group lessons for infants, juniors, women and men and a range of memberships are available. We have aimed to provide an opportunity to practice all tests golfers will encounter on good quality and well-designed 18 hole courses in a friendly accessible environment; our job as an academy is to ensure anyone wishing to play the game can enjoy it as much as we do. New accreditation to Engalnd Golf and our appointment as a Centre of Excellance means we provide everything for the new golfer as well as a perfect environment for all.
