can anyone advise which trains would be best to get to the royal birkdale golf club tomorow for the open championship? i think there is one from birmingham to Liverpool then liverpool to birkdale but i cant find any reference on this.??
I'm not a golfer but the Royal Birkdale website click here states that Hillside is the nearest station and I use Crosstrainer's site for train journeys. A quick look gave me trains with usually 2 changes.
for Birkdale golf course. When you get to Liverpool Lime Street, make your way to Central Station about a five minute walk away. From there you take the Southport train which runs every fifteen minutes. There is a large notice on the platform at Hillside telling you that it is the station for the golf. Hope you enjoy the outing.
rossgolf. Well what a lousy day for the start of the golf weekend at Birkdale. I am thinking of the spectators more than the players. Apart from the weather I have just heard that there is a fault on the rail line between Formby and Southport so all the spectators will have to be bussed to there destination. Shame ! I know my lad was looking forward to a nice day out and now he is probably having to suffer in the beer tent. some lousy scores coming in too..... I've heard it is going to improve for Sunday...
im not going today in the end. me and a couple of mates were going up but as were not adults it would of cost for us to get in which is 25£ . 40£ for train and spendin money will be about 100£ overall and i dont wanna be paying that a week before i go on hols. so i will have to postpone till the next open comes to england unfortunately
