Southport Golf Club had its origins in South Coast Recreations, a leisure complex that also included a cinema and a hotel, when that company developed a local dairy farm for recreational use in 1924.

A 9-hole course operated until 1948, at which point it was decided to purchase the site and create an 18-hole course. Club captain E. F. Doyle was instrumental in setting out the new course and he was granted life membership for his efforts.

Occupying a property that extends to 110 acres, the course at Southport is an easy walking track, with just a mild amount of undulation in the land as the tree-lined fairways weave their way around in two returning nines.

Highlight holes include the part threes at the 2nd and 14th (where ponds protect both greens), the double doglegging par five 8th (with water to the right and left of the putting surface), and the par four 17th, where yet another water hazard lurks to the left of an offset green.

Southport is a busy member's course, and has much to recommend it.

The course is very walkable, with tree lined fairways, and a dash of elevation change through the property.

It is beautfully bunkered, and has a liberal sprinkling of water hazards to keep you on your toes.

It is a good combination and makes for a most enjoyable round.

There are 5 par 3's at Southport and they dominate proceedings!

But the winding par 5 'hourglass hole' at hole 13 is the standout.

It is a ripping hole!

Notable holes include:

- hole 2, a short par 3 over water

- hole 3, a dogleg par 4 protected by water and sand

- hole 7, a short, pretty , well bunkered par 3

- hole 13, a winding tree lined par 5, with an hour glass figure- water both sides of the fairway mid way down the hole narrows the playing corridor, before opening up again to a well bunkered green..

- hole 14, another delightful par 3 protected by water

I enjoyed my day at Southport.

It is a lovely walk, and an interesting course with plenty of variation.

Recommended!
