2019: CSS 74 SSS 75

Originally designed by five-time Champion Golfer of the Year James Braid, Fairhaven Golf Club has hosted Final Qualifying on several occasions when The Open has been held at nearby Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club.

The course record is held by 1997 Champion Golfer Justin Leonard, who scored 64 a year prior when Final Qualifying was being held for The Open in 1996.

Fairhaven is an unusual blend of links and parkland which is relatively flat, allowing complete vision of each hole from tee to green. It is presented to the highest standard, offering a fair challenge to golfers of all abilities and featuring the “risk & reward” elements of negotiating the 122 deep revetted bunkers for which Fairhaven is famous. It has all the characteristics of a traditional links course, including a sand sub-soil, allowing year-round golf.
