Birkdale accommodation in short supply

7.39am 27th June 2008 - Travel

The Open Championship will take place at Royal Birkdale from 17th – 20th July 2008 and there are now very few vacancies for anyone who has yet to book their accommodation.

The next few days provide positively the last chance to find somewhere to stay. Southport Golf Tours still have a few rooms available in a variety of hotels in Southport, just five minutes from the golf course. Also available are less expensive rooms on the outskirts of the area.

All enquiries should be sent to Roy Wilkinson of Southport Golf Tours Tel: Int. +44 (0)1704 228278 or Email:
