GOLF COURSES

GOLF COURSES

ROYAL LYTHAM & ST ANNES GOLF CLUB

Ranked #54 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club was founded in 1886 and the present Course constructed in 1897. The Clubhouse celebrated its Centenary in 1998. It is one of the premier links courses in the world, host to eleven Open Championships, two Ryder Cups and numerous other major tournaments including the Women's and Seniors Open Championships and the Walker Cup in 2015.

Royal Lytham & St. Annes has 174 bunkers peppering the fairways and surrounding the greens. Although the not the longest of Championship courses, it is one where careful thought and accurate shots are essential. It is not a conventionally beautiful golf course as it is surrounded by suburban housing and flanked by a railway line, but it has a charm all of its own. It is a Links Course that is a long way from the sea yet close enough for the sea breeze to have an effect on one's game.

ROYAL BIRKDALE GOLF CLUB

Ranked #38 in Top 100 Golf Courses in the World

Designed by George Lowe, Royal Birkdale as we now know it was opened in 1897. In the 1930s, the course was remodelled and upgraded to championship standards by F.G. Hawtree and J.H. Taylor.

The club was simply known as Birkdale until 1951 when King George VI bestowed the royal charter on the club. Royal Birkdale Golf Club has hosted all the important events—the Ryder Cup, Walker Cup, Curtis Cup, Ladies British Open Championship. The British Open Championship has been hosted at Birkdale no fewer than nine times (most recently in 2008).

It truly is a famous links and widely recognized for its fairness. If you hit the fairways, rarely will the ball be thrown off course. The fairways are laid out in the flat-bottomed valleys between the towering dunes. These dunes, in turn, provide superb viewing platforms for spectators.

ROYAL LIVERPOOL GOLF CLUB (HOYLAKE)

Ranked #15 in Top 100 Golf Courses in England

Hoylake, as it is called by those in the know, has a long and illustrious history of playing host to the Open Championship and has now staged twelve, its first in 1897. Founded in 1869, Hoylake is the second oldest seaside links course in England – only Royal North Devon is older.

George Morris, brother of Old Tom, and Robert Chambers originally laid out a 9-hole course on the site of a racecourse and for the first seven years, golfers shared the land with members of the Liverpool Hunt Club. Three extra holes were soon added and in 1871, the course was extended to 18 holes. In 1872, the club received royal patronage from Prince Arthur, Duke of Connaught.

Without doubt, Royal Liverpool is a tough links. Only six holes are in the dunes – otherwise there is little protection from the ever-changing wind. There is nothing artificial about the course. It represents a traditional, genuine test of golf and after 39 years away, The Open Championship returned to Hoylake in 2006, with Tiger Woods the winner.

 

HILLSIDE GOLF CLUB

Ranked #23 in Top 100 Golf Courses in England

A true championship links, Hillside is regarded as the finest links golf course not to have hosted the Open Championship. The club has a track record of staging some of the highest profile professional and amateur tournaments, including the 1982 PGA Championship and twice the Amateur and Ladies Amateur Championships. A regular Final Qualifying venue for the Open, Hillside has recently hosted the 2019 British Masters.

Hillside Golf Club is actually ranked in the top 25 courses in all the British Isles, but is relatively unknown internationally because it has never hosted the Open. The club is one of the very best of the Open Championship final qualifying venues, and has also hosted the Amateur Championship and numerous European Tour events. And you won’t believe how spectacular the back nine is, as good as Royal Birkdale is, it is not uncommon to hear someone say they think Hillside Golf Club is the better course.

WALLASEY GOLF CLUB

Wallasey was founded in 1891 by members from nearby Hoylake, perhaps because their links was becoming crowded or maybe because Wallasey was more convenient for the many Liverpool businessmen wanting to slip away to play golf.

Tom Morris senior of St Andrews, four times Open champion, laid out the links. Course improvements were made in 1901 by Alex Herd and in 1913 by Harold Hilton. In 1929, James Braid was consulted on alterations which led to Wallasey being selected as a qualifying course for the 1930 Open.

Although Wallasey was again an Open qualifying course in 1936, a new lease meant that the acreage was reduced and a new layout was required. This was designed by Hawtree and J H Taylor, with additional advice from James Braid.

In 1995 and 2000 Wallasey staged the Amateur Championship preliminary rounds. In 2006 the club hosted Final Qualifying for the Open Championship.

FORMBY GOLF CLUB

Ranked #18 in Top 100 Golf Courses in England

Formby Golf Club was founded in 1884, originally with a nine-hole course in play for the members. In 1912, Willie Park Junior established the original 18-hole layout and it was altered by James Braid in 1922 and Harry Colt in 1933. Today's layout now measures more than 7,000 yards from the tips.

Play Formby when you have been sufficiently beaten up by the other windy links courses around Liverpool and Southport, but don’t be fooled into thinking that this course is easy. It certainly is not. Bunkering is strategic, the undulating fairways are very much links-like, the rough is strewn with heather and the pines provide an element of park-like protection from the wind. Formby will suit both links lovers and the player who prefers the softness of inland golf; both these camps will arrive contentedly at the 19th hole.

Formby has hosted a number of important amateur events over the years and played host to the 2004 Curtis Cup and has hosted. The Amateur Championship on three occasions.

MALMAISON HOTEL, LIVERPOOL

Surround yourself with views of the water side at this boutique city center hotel. Home of the Fab Four, music is at the heart of Liverpool, as well as legendary football clubs and upmarket shopping. The Malmaison Hotel is just up the road from the Museum of Liverpool, Tate Liverpool, the Echo Arena, and the Royal Albert Dock...– and that’s just the waterfront.

The 11-story building is sleek and modern, featuring an interior with a 'Gothic glam' feel, dominated by black, fuchsia, deep purple and violet hues. Each floor has a discreet Liverpool theme – clad with old Beatles posters and prints of the Liver Building and cathedrals – and there’s a giant yellow submarine hanging between the floors.

There are 130 bedrooms and suites spread over six floors (five other floors have apartments and meeting rooms), ranging from standards and superiors. Beds are king size and super-soft, the baths are unusually deep, and the minibars and snacks are great.
