Come and Experience the True Test of Links Golf

England’s Golf Coast has a rich history of hosting the world’s most prestigious golfing events, including The Open Championship, The Ryder Cup and The Walker Cup. In 2015, Royal Lytham & St Annes hosted the Walker Cup, joining Royal Birkdale in being one of only three clubs to have hosted all three events (the other is Muirfield).

You too can take on these true tests of championship golf and walk in the footsteps of such great champions as Tom Watson, Seve Ballesteros and Tiger Woods, all Open Champions at one of our three Open Championship venues. With all but one of our member clubs having been in existence for over 100 years, there is plenty of history to enjoy and explore.

Although the three Open venues are the ‘jewel in the crown’ of England’s Golf Coast, all of our other courses are not to be overlooked. Hillside, Formby, Southport & Ainsdale and West Lancashire are all included in the ‘Top 100 Courses of the UK & Ireland’ and have all hosted The British Amateur Championships and final qualifying for the Open Championship. In 1937, Southport & Ainsdale became the first club to host The Ryder Cup twice. 

All of our other member courses also have a rich history of hosting major events. Delamere Forest and Wallasey are both ranked in the Top 100 in England and have been used as Open Championship final qualifying venues.  Golfweek, in America, ranks Wallasey 31st in their 2017 rankings of Great Britain & Ireland’s classic courses.

Hesketh, the oldest club in Southport, has previously hosted Open Championship Final Qualifying and was also co-host for the 2011 British Amateur Championship.

The Old Course at Formby Hall has played host to the European Seniors Tour, Challenge Tour and Europro Tour. At over 7000 yards from the blue tees, it is no wonder why!

Caldy has hosted numerous Ladies European Tour Events as well as co-hosting the Senior British Open Championship in 1981. Most recently the club acted as the final qualifying venue for the 2012 Ricoh Women’s British Open, held at nearby Royal Liverpool.

Ormskirk is a former host of Open Championship regional qualifying and, in 2016, was the venue for both the Lancashire Amateur Championship and the Lancashire PGA Championship.

Formby Ladies Golf Club, founded in 1896, is a unique ladies only members club, offering a truly testing links course. The course is set amongst coastal sand dunes and towering pines, adjacent to Formby Golf Club, with tight fairways, heathery rough and well protected greens.

With so many quality golf courses in such close proximity to each other, England’s Golf Coast is the perfect choice for your next golf break.
