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.

Stunning links golf course

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!

Formby fantastic second year running

Just live this course. If it is good enough for Bubba Watson's practice before the Open.... say no more. The course is superb. The tree lined first nine are magnificent ( we all struggled to score well) and the back nine links is so enjoyable ( and a bit easier) I find myself standing looking around sucking in all the views not forgetting the sea view from the 10th and the waves were so loud. One golfer drove 6 hours from south coast to be here it is that good. Staying in the Dormy house to play the slightly shorter 'ladies' course tomorrow. Massive shout out to the lady who organises everything Julie Stong in the office. She is so friendly and can't do enough to help make your stay perfect she even say with us to have morning coffee.....she just sums up the place....so friendly! The £240 4 ball with soup and sandwiches is so good value. Only downside was the course was busy before we went out so round took 4 hours 45. So only just finished on the 18th by the lights of the clubhouse

Truly Incredible
I have played this course many times and it is incredible. It is a challenge, it is fun and the views are fantastic. The holes are fun and hard at the same time. I would play this course over any of the 3 Open courses in the area any day. Depending on the wind coming off the sea, I have played the par-3 #10 with an 8-iron and with a 3-wood! So the course can be different every time you play it. You have to play this course-a true gem. The club house is splendid too, great staff and you can even stay in the dormy right in the clubhouse. The full package. I normally do not write reviews like this but this course deserves it. Thank you Formby Golf Club!

Great course
Played a lot on this course lately as it?s drainage has been coping really well with all the rain.
Most of the other golf courses are closed do to flooding.
Every time it seems to get more enjoyable as my course management is improving
It?s a difficult course for high handicappers with a lot of water hazards and pot bunkers.
The course is well laid out with some very interesting holes.
The green keepers do a fantastic job looking after the course keeping it in excellent condition constantly improving its condition.
Overall I would recommend this course to everyone & is worth a visit.
