Pay and Play Golf in Southport



Welcome to Southport Golf Academy

"A golfing experience where all are (normally) welcome"

Friday 3rd APRIL - Cloudy today but expected dry. A steady breeze from the West keeps the temperature up to 9 degrees. But sorry - it's all now closed. Met Office forecast for Tarleton.

The course, range and cafe are now completely closed until further notice in line with government instruction - no access to the golf complex will be permitted

         we intend to post regular updates and hopefully some drill and tips for home practice






It is the ideal place to begin the game, or to improve and develop your skills on either our manicured (CONGU Handicap Qualifying) 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.

Academy Course

A brand new challenging layout awaits you on our course, with every hole offering a different test. Designed to be accessible for any standard of player whilst still offering a stern test for the accomplished golfer, the 9 hole Academy Course at SGA is the ideal place to learn the game or improve your skills. Each hole will ask for a different club or shot to be hit by the experienced golfer whilst remaining flat and relatively forgiving to a newcomer. A CONGU handicap qualifying length and being immaculately presented 12 months of the year, this is not your average par 3 course.
