Golf’s Most Unique Destination Tournament
What makes it unique?
Many of us have lifelong memories of playing golf with the ones we love. Did you learn the game from your grandfather each summer while visiting during vacation, or get your big brother or sisters set of clubs as a hand me down so you could learn the game, or because of your love for the game, teach your young son or daughter before they were barely big enough to hold the club?
If so, the Heritage Classic is the perfect blending of family and passion of golf with those who many of us received it from ….our families. Guests play in teams of 2 with any family member. Parents, spouses, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, related by blood, marriage, or adoption.
This year, our all-inclusive event is in the footsteps of past champions taking place May 21-25 in England’s Golf Coast and the vibrant home of the Beatle’s, in Liverpool. Your trip of a lifetime awaits.
The “3 Royals”
Across one of the finest stretch of links golf courses found anywhere in the world, the most unique destination golf tournament takes place this May. Encompassing 3 current Open Championship venues….Royal Birkdale, Royal Liverpool, and Royal Lytham & St Anne’s.
So let’ start with the golf.
After a practice round at Formby Golf Club, participants will play the 3 competition rounds across the 3 “Royals”….Birkdale, Liverpool, & Lytham & St Anne’s. who have combined to host the Open Championship a total of 33 times!
Many of us remember Jordan Spieth and Matt Kuchar battling it out on the back nine at Birkdale, Rory McIlroy winning his first Open at Liverpool over Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia, or Ernie Els winning at Lytham & St Anne’s after Adam Scott’s back nine collapse. Now you have the unique chance to make your own memories across those very same links.
