Goswick Prime: Experience Our Open Regional Qualifying Links at its Very Best

April 20, 2023

Every golf season has its ebbs and flows. But, invariably, the high point is the Open Championship. Everything that happens between now and then builds toward that week, which this year will be 16-23 July at Royal Liverpool.

Meanwhile, those of us at Goswick Golf Links have Monday the 26th of June circled in our diaries. That’s the day that we, along with a short list of other top-rated UK courses so honoured by the R&A, will host Open Championship regional qualifying — the first big step on the path for professionals and top amateurs striving to land a coveted spot in the field at Hoylake. Though our exceptional greenkeeping staff maintains our links to a consistently high standard year-round, there’s no question that it aims to present Goswick at its absolute peak on qualifying day — ideally hard, fast and fiery.

Mere mortals like us can’t play the course on qualifying day. But we can tee it up immediately after and put our games to virtually the same test as those who dream of Open Championship glory.

Now, we’d like to invite you to indulge in this same peak links experience. From Wednesday 28th June through the playing of the Open Championship at Hoylake on 23rd July, you can experience Goswick at its very best — what we’re calling Goswick Prime — as part of a special all-in-one package.

It includes:

  • Arriving early and enjoying a hot roll and beverage in our lounge.
  • Warming up by hitting balls off the grass tee on our full-sized range.
  • Taking to the links, where the thrill of striking the ball on firm fescue turf and watching it bound amid ancient sand dunes awaits. This video of Alex Wrigley, who a year ago advanced from qualifying at Goswick to play in the 150th Open at the Old Course in St Andrews, will give you a taste of authentic links golf.
  • Adjourning to our 19th hole to reflect on your round with your mates while you quaff a pint and indulge in either soup and sandwiches (afternoon tee times) or a 2-course meal (morning tee times).

That’s Goswick Prime: experiencing golf on our renowned James Braid masterpiece the way the game was meant to be played. And all of it is available to you at an all-inclusive price starting at £90. The rate varies depending on what time of day you want to play and the catering offering.
