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.
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

My favourite coast on the coast. Love being able to play here when i get the chance. Everything about the course and its condition is simply superb - shame about my golf on the day!

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
