Hillside Golf Club sits right next door to Royal Birkdale and is ranked 32nd in Golf Monthly’s magazine’s Top 100. Hillside was founded in 1911 and took its name from a nearby farm where the links were located, and in 1923 new land was acquired from the Weld Blundell estate.
In 1956 Fred Hawtree was commissioned to redesign the course, and in 1967 the new layout came into play. Although not on the Open Championship rota, it has held several major tournaments including the 1973 Benson & Hedges Match Play Championship and the 1982 PGA Championship won by Tony Jacklin.
While the front nine offers some great golf holes it is relatively flat compared to the back nine that moves through the dunes and has undulating fairways. Look out for the two fantastic par-5s, the 11th and 17th that are played through dune valleys.

My tips to Win:
From six starts on the European Tour this year Joost Luiten 28/1 – with SportingBet – has only been outside the Top 25 once with three of being Top 10 finishes and with that consistency I think he will be in the thick of it come Sunday
This week’s defending champion is Eddie Pepperell 25/1 – with UniBet ¬– and I am sure he will want to put up a great defence of his title. It’s not been a great year for Eddie on the European Tour, but he did have a third-place finish at The Players Championship and a Top 20 at the RBC Heritage on the PGA Tour and he will be hoping he brings that form to the Golf Coast this week.
It has been two years since Jordan Smith 33/1 – Ladbrokes – won his maiden European Tour title at the Porsche Open. Jordan had two third place finishes last year at the Volvo China Open and the British Masters. Smith is coming into this week in confident mood on the back of another Top 5 finish in China and will be desperate to add a second European Tour title to his name.
Another player that is in great form is Erik Van Rooyen 45/1 – with SportingBet – who has two runner-up finishes in his last six starts on the European Tour. Erik was in good position going into the final round of the Volvo China Open last week but a final round 72 see his challenge slip away, but I believe he will win soon and he will certainly be in the thick of it again come Sunday.
Paul Dunne 66/1 – with SportingBet – only victory came at the British Masters two years ago firing a final round 61 and since then it has been a bit of a rollercoaster for him with missed cuts and good performance on both the European and PGA Tours, but back playing in this event I am sure he will want to do well
Stephen Gallacher 110/1 – with MrathonBet – has never won two tournaments in the same year, but someone who has won the Dunhill Links Championship and comes into this event after winning a couple of weeks ago cannot be discounted, especially at these odds.
Try Lee Slattery 200/1 – SportingBet
As always good luck
