What the club says: The course is located within the sandhills and pine woods of Formby, the natural terrain providing a memorable challenge to the golfer. Members play the course at 6505 yards but the championship length has recently been increased to 7028 yards. Accuracy is always required since the indigenous heather protects much of the rough and great caution is required whether this be off the tee, in approach shots, or on the green.
Despite the rain I loved every hole on this gorgeous links course. Set with the backdrop of pine trees, each hole is interesting and challenging in its own right. The greens are some of the best I have ever played on. Club has top class practice facilities, good size changing rooms with showers and food in the bar was good value. The pro shop and starter offered a warm welcome especially being the week of The Open. Can't wait to go back one day!

Excellent course in great condition. Plenty of dangers await from deep bunkers, heather, obscured fairways etc. Large challenging greens with undulations, but true roll of the ball. Would certainly help if different coloured flags for pin positions were used. Tough course but very interesting.

What a club, what a welcome, what staff..... from Julie on reception, to Tony at the bar to the extremely helpful waitresses and staff including the exceptionally courteous green staff.
This course was great fun and my first proper links course it was as hard as you may think..... deadly if you dont stay on fairways and the greens were a combination of difficult and fun in judt the right quantity
Highly recommend the dormy accommodation, breakfast and bar food!
This is what golf is supposed to be like everywhere

The course is one thing that did meet with the reputation it has, in excellent condition, challenging yet fair with wonderful, ironed greens on which putting was a delight.
We have toured as a group for 22 years throughout the UK and this will always remain as one of our favourite visits, hopefully we will make it back again one day.
So my advice to any golfer thinking about playing this magnificent course, go ahead and do it and I'm sure you will be made as welcome as we were.
great course. loved it. one of the best ive ever played!!! a pleasure.

A superb course with some parkland style holes amongst links holes. Greens were good but slow due to recent rainfall. Lovely Clubhouse and a warm welcome.
