  • 18 holes, par 72, 7031 yards. Links/Woodland.

    Formby Golf Club was formed in 1884, which makes it one of the oldest courses along the golf coast, and often said to be the most beautiful. Formby was originally a 9-hole course designed by Willie Park, which was later extended to a full 18-holes. Since then the course has had numerous refurbishments – First by James Braid and Harry Colt in the 1920’s, then by Hawtree and Taylor in the 1930’s, and most recently by Donald Steel who added considerable length to the course.

    Formby Links is a very unique course, often recognised for its difficult par 3’s and need for accuracy. Heather and thick rough surround the golf course which creates beautiful but tough natural boundaries which frame the many undulating fairways. Firm greens, sand hills and a large quantity of bunkers dovetail with the difficult rough-stuff to create a fabulous and very difficult golf course. Formby Links Golf Course is certainly one to book for you golf trip to England.
