What the club says: The renowned golf course architect Donald Steel said "Only in Britain can one sample the true flavour of seaside golf of which West Lancashire is a perfect example"

West Lancashire has been a final qualifying course for The Open in 1976, 1983, 1991, 1998, 2006 and most recently in 2008. In 1976 four young professionals competed in the final qualifier at West Lancasire - Nick Faldo, Berhard Langer, Sandy Lyle and Ian Woosnam - all went on to win the coveted "Green Jacket" of the US Masters.

The Club's place in history is assured as it has its name on The Amateur Championship trophy, one of the 24 clubs that contributed to the cost of the trophy when the competition was first established in 1885. The first winner was Alan Macfie a West Lancashire member. The club also has a notable record for ladies golf too, for in 1891 The West Lancashire Ladies Club was formed, the first of its kind in South West Lancashire.

Lovely links track
Superb links course in a special part of the country for links courses. Nice varied layout which presents a decent test and challenge which is a joy to play.

Lots of pot bunkers which I managed to avoid and some tough greens with contours and lots of run offs but in A way condition running true and fast. Bunker and fairways were also in great condition and first cut of rough not to testing but go any wider and it will be tough which you would expect.

The views from pretty much the whole course are fantastic with a view out to the sea/estuary. There is also something nice about a railway link running alongside a golf course.

In brilliant condition
Course is in brilliant condition, greens are superb. Pure links course and can be windy so need a range of shots to cope

Tough true links golf course, really friendly people, great facilities all round. Working up from Liverpool this is the first in a stretch of 7 links courses, I think this is the best, certainly the most "true" links and better than its prestigious neighbour Royal Birkdale in my view

Great course, terrible weather to begin. One of few courses where it's possible to play throughout the year. Exclusive membership and high per round cost ensures it isn't overplayed but, to my mind this, a mistake.......however!!

Playing very well and in great condition - hard to believe its winter. Greens a little slower than usual with the ground being damp but full tee's and green's in use. Some repair work on bunkers, which means GUR, so slightly easier but looking steep when back in play.

Punishing rough needs to be avoided as once in you'll have to take your medicine even if you find your ball which wouldn't be easy.

The West Lancashire Golf Club is another at the top of the list of the best golf courses in the area. The tight fairways and lightning quick greens really do make this course a great test but a rewarding one at that. When the wind blows, this course is an exceptional challenge, but a must play nonetheless.

Alan Green Burnley rated 3 out of 5 - Aug 6 2015

Pity the greens have been vandalised but can't understand why local rule allowing relief is not in force for the damaged greens. The cost of a bacon barm in the clubhouse is an extortionate £5 surely the most expensive bacon butty in the North of England! £30 for a buggy was also too expensive but I accept one or two other clubs are similarly priced.

Course is playing very well, the work of the ground staff is really paying off. The greens are quick and the changes to the 6th green mean it is much more consistent. Repairs to other greens now appear to be completed. Ball running a long way in true links fashion.

Gareth P rated 5 out of 5 - Aug 27 2014

This is one of my favourite courses. It is (almost) totally fair, you can see exactly what is in front of you with the exception of the drives at 9 and 14 - but on these holes the landing areas for drives are generous. Bad shots are punished as off the fairway and first cut, the rough can be severe.
I feel that the back 9 is the stronger as after a bland 10th, the memorable holes come thick and fast. The par 3 12th and par 4 13th are my favourites - usually played into the wind. Oddly enough, compared to my home links, there is not a trace of gorse on the course. Members and Staff very helpful.

Judy O rated 5 out of 5 - Jun 12 2012

Visited on June 10th 2012. Event was the Crosby Beacon which is a scratch team event for just over 20 clubs across the North of England.
Course was in amazing condition as was the weather. Couldn't believe we had warm sunshine and little wind (until the last few holes). Course is not the longest but has narrow fairways, lots of very strategically placed bunkers and rough that you will be lucky to find a person in never mind a golf ball. All in all it is an excellent challenge for players of the highest abilities.
Facilities we very good, Pro shop very helpful, everyone very welcoming.
Can't comment on value for money as it was a comp rather than a private round.

Top tip - if you are playing in a comp bring plenty of spotters - we had 4 and we needed them all!
