Golf Road, Formby, Merseyside, L37 1LQ
One of the World's Great Links Courses, the course borders the Irish Sea, yet is surrounded by Pine Trees making it a unique golfing experience like no other.
What style is the course at Formby Golf Club?
Firm links fairways, well defined wispy rough and traditional links greens. Always in high quality condition and has been labelled the best links course to have never hosted the Open Championship on many occasion.
What is the feature hole?
All the holes here are worthy of the title feature hole, but the 9th is a demanding par 4, often into the prevailing wind, with stunning panoramic views over the sea from the Tee area. Par is always a formidable score here.
What sort of course features can the player expect?
A unique feature is that Formby is links course but with two tree lined holes. The holes from the 5th to the 15th will test any golfer with an array of different shots required, and are widely regarded as one of the best stretches of holes on the whole of the English coastline.
