What the club says: Built in 1869 on the edge of the Dee shores and against the backdrop of the distant Welsh hills, Royal Liverpool is a fine place to sense the history and traditions of the game and walk in the fairways of famous men. Home of the 2006 Open Championship, the course may at first appear to look flat and benign, but don't let this be deceiving as in recent years golf architect Donald Steel has been commissioned, with great success, to restore and elevate the course to modern championship standards.

I was delighted to get to play Hoylake again, now for the 3rd time, but with a year or so since the last time. I have to say that I can see what people mean when they say it grows on you. Playing the course with some prior knowledge of where you need to be on the fairways to get the best shot at the green and how to avoid the killer bunkers really makes a difference. Talking of the bunkers, I managed to go in less this time, but when I was, I have to say the condition of them is second to none. There are no complaints or excuses when it’s a struggle to get out. Another thing I had in mind was that the 11th is a lot more challenging once you know more about it. It looks idyllic perched on the edge of the Dee Estuary with fantastic views 360 degrees around. Don’t be fooled, this is a tough Par 3 and a real highlight of the round. The other stand-out hole for me was the all new green on the 17th. I say green, but actually the new angle of attack makes it feel like a completely new hole... and a great one at that. It’s a tough landing area, with some intelligently placed bunkers and roll-off areas that offer a premium for accurate long iron play. Overall, I love playing at Hoylake and I can’t wait to get fit again after my knee operation and get back out ahead of the Women’s Open next year. - Nov 25 2011

When talking about Royal Liverpool, it is easy to run out of superlatives as the place is just that good. As you walk the tightly mowed fairways you really do get a feel of the history of the place and its past Open Championships. The greens were spot on and the pot bunkers were everything I imagined before arriving here. Every single member of staff was extremely helpful and I would not hesitate to go back. - Jul 26 2016
Golf Course Reviews for Royal Liverpool Golf Club
Greens and bunkers were outstanding, overall considering it’s an
Open venue it was disappointing tee box’s were neglected. The layout is very flat and not much character to the course , Hillside is a much better course
The clubhouse is stunning and everything you expect with an open venue.
Surprisingly the bar prices are very reasonable.

One of the oldest clubs in the area , the course is smaller than it looks on TV but is very hard when the wind blows. We played on next to no wind but you still had to club up maybe one or two clubs at times. The rough and gorse is tough in places and of course a bunker will punish you. The views across to North Wales are wonderful. The greens were very true. The staff in the club house were very friendly and helpful. Take time to explore the clubhouse , its fantastic , loads of history. No matter what the price its worth a visit.
A fantastic day at a course with lots of history. Everyone we met at the club was extremely friendly and ready to help. The course was fantastic, great condition and a challenge. Very memorable day and another open venue ticked off the list.

Played as member's guest so fantastic value for money. Very challenging, as when missing narrow fairways straight into thick rough. Happily only visited two of the impressive bunkers.

Played this as a birthday present from my fiancee. Clubouse is two floors. Downstairs very standard bar area with the hallway having some good memorabilia. Upstairs was lovely. Very old world with a lovely big bay window looking across the course.
Couldn't have asked for better playing conditions in Feb. Sunny, no wind and very quiet course. The course was in excellent condition. The greeens were fair at best at putted very slowly. I know it is February but I would expect more at a course such as this. What struck me most was how flat the course was, like one giant field, though in immaculate condition other than the greens. Some nice holes but nothing spectacular. The tees were very far forward as well which I felt took something away from the challenge.
Having played a lot of golf at Wallasey down the road (albeit mostly in summer) I would honestly say I find that more interesting and prettier.
