Thanks guys for all the replies.  A lot of good information to digest but the most compelling takeaway is that there is plenty of great golf in England.  Having been to Scotland and Ireland about 5x each, I am truly excited for this trip and it sounds like it's going to take 2, 3 or 4 trips to England to really see many of the great courses.
If you've been to Scotland 5x then you'll need to go to England 10x. England is way deeper in quality courses.

Iím late to this thread, but since the trip is in 2024, figured Iíd add my perspective. England has quickly grown to be my favorite country to visit for golf. There are several regions worthy of their own trip, as others have pointed out.

I did a trip a couple of years ago that ranks among the very best Iíve been on.

Wallasey
Hoylake
Formby
Southport & Ainsdale
Hillside
West Lancs
Formby Ladies
Lytham & St. Anneís
Birkdale

I enjoyed visiting every club and playing every course, staying one night near Hoylake, and then a week in Southport. Never too much driving, allowing for maximum time playing golf and socializing. If I were to return, Iíd gladly revisit every one of these courses, and ideally add St. Anneís Old and Hesketh, given the chance. In fact, I plan to do just that in the not too distant future.
New for 2023:  Cheraw SP, Grandfather, Clyne, Tenby, Pennard, Langland Bay, Southerndown, Pyle & Kenfig, Royal Porthcawl, Ashburnham, Rolls of Monmouth...

I wouldn't bother with Hesketh. Better off slipping toward Delamere Forest or Prestbury.

Delamere Forest = very underrated. Should be seen.

Sean - Sunningdale to Pulborough isnít far off half the distance as Hoylake to Lytham.
