Golf Links

Formby Golf Club

Set in the beautiful sand dunes and pinewoods of Formby the terrain ensures that golfing accuracy is always at a premium.  Heather protects much of the rough and caution is definitely required whether playing off the tee or in approaching the well protected greens.  This is a course of wonderful contrasts.

Our traditional clubhouse offers you comfort and relaxation in a welcoming environment.  A full range of snacks is available throughout the day.

The Professional shop will cater for all your golfing needs, be it club hire, clothing, teaching or helpful hints and tips from the Professional and his assistants.

Royal Birkdale Golf Club

A warm welcome awaits anyone visiting Royal Birkdale and it is considered to be one of the fairest of the Open Championship venues although you would hardly think so stood on the 1st tee. Birkdale has hosted all of the major Professional and Amateur Championships. Every hole will evoke great memories but none more so than playing the 18th hole with its distinctive art deco clubhouse as a backdrop. It is a memorable finish to a memorable day and no wonder visitors indulge in the applause of the imaginary stands lining their approach to the green.

Royal Liverpool Golf Club

Royal Liverpool Golf Club at Hoylake has staged major tournaments throughout its long history including eleven Open Championships and many amateur events. The Club is proud that The Open Championship made a successful return to Hoylake in 2006 when Tiger Woods achieved his third victory. The Club is always pleased to welcome visiting golfers to the Links and to the Clubhouse where our impressive heritage collection is on display.

The Royal Liverpool course at Hoylake started life as the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club, set on the shores of the Dee and with the Welsh hills in the distance. As a reminder of its previous life, the original saddling bell is displayed among the memorabilia in the clubhouse.

The golf course was built in 1869 and, with the exception of Westward Ho! in Devon, is the oldest seaside course in England. It is also one of the great links courses.

The club is a place of firsts: the first Amateur in 1885; the first international match between England and Scotland in 1902; the first international between Great Britain and the United States in 1921, now known as the Walker Cup.

Although the Club has hosted many great events and many a famous golfing hero has walked the fairways over the years, it is probably best known for its contribution to the amateur game and a place where amateurs feel at home. Aside from hosting the first Amateur Championship there have been other great golfing accomplishments. Hilton, from neighbouring West Kirby, won The Amateur Championship four times and The Open in 1892 and 1897. Hoylake’s own John Ball won The Amateur Championship an amazing eight times, as well as The Open in 1890. By winning The Open at Hoylake in 1930, Bobby Jones secured a place in golf history by winning The Open and The Amateur Championship on both sides of the Atlantic in the same year to achieve his famous ‘Grand Slam’.

Whilst at first appearance the links may look flat, at 6,900 yards from the member’s tees it is a stern test and like all links courses, the wind makes its presence felt. The summer breeze can be your ally and the icy gale a ruthless adversary. All the holes require your utmost attention.

The well appointed clubhouse offers a respite from the elements and a place to soak up the history and traditions of the game.

The Club will host the 2012 Women’s British Open, 2013 British Boys Championship and the 2014 Open Championship.

Southport & Ainsdale Golf Club

The club has played host to numerous professional and amateur events including the Ryder Cup (twice); the Dunlop Open Tournaments in the 1930s through to the1950s; used several times as the final qualifying course for the British Open Championship and also for the British Amateur and Lancashire County Championships.

The club has an international and historical reputation and is often referred to by the shortened version of its name, S & A. The course is revered amongst golfers and attracts visitors from all over the world. In the 1990s, one of America’s top golf course designers is quoted in ‘Golf World’ as saying, ”S & A is the best designed course in the UK.”.
The course is particularly interesting in that it has retained most of the features from the original layout as designed by James Braid in terms of the natural landscape and the previous uses of the land. Before it became a golf course, the land had been predominantly sandhills with undulating areas of land in between, After the Second World War, and through to the present day, S & A have continued to host both professional and top amateur golf events on a regular basis.

Among those who played in the 1950s were Open Champions, Henry Cotton, Max Faulkner, Bobby Locke, Peter Thomson, plus Peter Alliss, Dai Rees and many other famous golfers.

In the 1960s, when The Open Championship started to attract the players from the USA and other countries, S & A members were able to see the likes of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Bob Charles and others.

In the 1970s, S & A hosted two Pro-Ams where members of S & A were teamed up with top golfers and famous ‘celebrities’ from the world of entertainment and sport, including Bing Crosby, Sean Connery, Gary Player, Tony Jacklin and Sir Matt Busby

In 1979, the British Ladies Championship, open to amateurs and professionals for the first time and sponsored by Pretty Polly, was held at S & A.

During the 1980s,1990s through to the present day, S & A have hosted several events including final qualifying rounds for The Opens Championship held at Royal Birkdale and Royal Lytham.

West Lancashire Golf Club

The West Lancashire Golf Club, founded in 1873, is among the ten oldest clubs in England and boasts one of the most natural and testing links found anywhere in the British Isles. We are proud of our challenging championship course where visitors are most welcome throughout the year.

"Only in Britain can one sample the true flavour of seaside golf of which West Lancashire is a perfect example. Within the framework of the coastal dunes and the railway, a glorious balance unfurls. There are humps and hollows, greens on plateaux and greens in dells,
