Founded in 1901, St Annes Old Links is one of the fine championship links of England’s north west coast and hosted Final Qualifying in 2017 after a five-year absence. The venue is located in close proximity to Royal Lytham & St Annes.
In 2018 it was proud to become the first venue to host Final Qualifying for both The Open and Women’s British Open in the same year.
The Old Links was voted in Golf World's January 2019's issue one of the "Top 100 Courses in England 2019" and also one of "England's Top 100 courses 2018" by National Club Golfer.
The signature ninth hole was voted by Golf World in the May 2010 issue as the Top Ninth Hole in Great Britain and Ireland. The great Bobby Jones is quoted as saying "it's difficult to see how you could improve on this".
