Sefton set to welcome thousands of golf lovers to Southport

Hillside Golf Club has been named as the host venue of this year’s Cazoo Classic, with a limited number of Launch Price tickets now available to purchase on a first come, first served basis, here.

The Cazoo Classic returns for a second year to the DP World Tour schedule from July 21-24 and marks the Tour’s first visit to the historic Merseyside golf course since home favourite Tommy Fleetwood successfully hosted the Betfred British Masters in front of huge crowds in 2019.

Designed by Fred Hawtree, the Southport venue is part of the glorious stretch of terrain and celebrated links recognised as England’s Golf Coast.

Sefton Council Leader Cllr Ian Maher said: “It’s great news that Hillside Golf Club will be the venue for the 2022 Cazoo Classic in July, as part of the DP World Tour.

“Hosting this prestigious competition in the Borough will mean more visitors will have the chance to discover Sefton’s legendary Golf Coast, which has produced some of the biggest stars of the golfing world. 

“A huge amount of work goes on behind the scenes to prepare for events like this and our partnership with the DP World Tour is proving to be repeatedly successful in bringing thousands of visitors to our beautiful borough.

“As well as providing a major boost to the local economy, we are keen to ensure the excitement generated by the Cazoo Classic helps to leave a legacy especially amongst younger people, boys and girls, to enjoy this fabulous sport.”

“And anyone who is inspired will be able to practice or try out the sport at the Council’s Bootle Golf Course where the new Driving Range will be open, and Southport Golf Links.”
