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.

The variety of the golf holes and the club house and traditional accommodation making it an overall brilliant experience from breakfast to golf, to dinner, to snooker to bed.

Outstanding course, one of the best courses I have ever played. Each hole was very challenging in it's own way although 6-14 were particularly tough

The ultimate English golf experience. period

from start to finish this is just class. But stay in the dormy and drink in the whole experience of staying in the historic club house. The golf is amazing, the members and staff are so friendly.
Go play and stay. Find Julie Strong in the office who will sort it all for you. She's amazing!
