Royal Liverpool Golf Club

Royal Liverpool Golf Course.jpg

Royal Liverpool Golf Club was established in 1869 and has played host to many major tournaments throughout the years, including ten Open Championships and numerous amateur events. Its course, Hoylake, is etched in the annals of golf's wonderful heritage.

Hoylake is built on what was the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club and is the oldest of all the English seaside courses with the exception of Westward Ho! in Devon, which pre-dated it by only a few years. Robert Chambers and George Morris laid out the original course which was extended to 18 holes in 1871, the year in which it received its Royal designation thanks to the patronage of HRH The Duke of Connaught.

Much time has passed since then, but the Hoylake links, despite their at first glance flat and benign appearance, are still very much among the toughest and most demanding tests of golf. What's more, in recent years, under the guidance of renowned course architect, Donald Steel, the course has been lengthened and upgraded to take on twenty-first century technology and increasingly athletic big hitters.
