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.

A hidden gem & true links course

A true test of golf especially when the breeze is up, which is most of the time! Fantastic layout tests all aspects of your game. The condition of the course is exceptional 365 days of the year and continues to be improved. Better & cheaper than most of its local rivals.

Fantastic course and proper test of golf

This is a fantastic course and proper test of golf. Plenty of changes being made with new blinkering and tee positions. Paths also being improved. The golf remains a pure links with play possible every day. On a windy day can be very tough.

Lovely links track

Golfshake Team ReviewSuperb 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.

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.
