Fairhaven Golf Club

Last Updated:

What we say

Fairhaven Golf Club is a lovely, quiet golf course in a great setting, but watch out for the pheasants – probably the only birds you’ll come across on this challengingly peaceful layout.

It’s not the easiest golf course in the world to find as it's a bit off the beaten track. Make sure you’re concentrating till the bitter end: - the par 5 18th is both long and tricky.

Recognised by the hierarchy of golf as one of the best courses in Northern England, Fairhaven has much to offer visiting golfers, whatever their handicap. Arriving at Fairhaven, having driven past numerous built-up areas, the first-time visitor should head for the lounge to see and enjoy the lovely vista of superb open golfing country, surrounded by woods, with not a house or any other building to be seen.

Fairhaven is not only a beautiful place to play golf but fully lives up to its designation as a ‘Championship’ course originally designed by James Braid. Professional golf at Fairhaven started back in 1934 when the course played host to the ‘Penfold’ Tournament. The Club has since hosted many ‘Open Championship Final Qualifying Competitions’ when the ‘Open Championship’ was played at neighbouring Royal Lytham & St.Annes Golf Club. The Professionals’ course record of 64 was achieved by Justin Leonard in 1996, while he was playing in and leading the final qualifying rounds.

Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman says: "Part of my job as dance teacher and judge was that twice a year I’d go to Blackpool to judge the British Championships and during the day I’d have the opportunity to play golf. Not at Royal Lytham but a littler course called Fairhaven and it’s beautiful and is always in good nick. You’ve a chance of scoring too on the handful of par-5s."
