Royal Liverpool Golf Club
Par 72, 6,847 Yards
Despite its somewhat flat and benign appearance, Royal Liverpool Golf Club is among the toughest and most demanding of the great seaside championship links of Britain. Hoylake lies at the very heart of the history and development of golf in Britain. Built in 1869, on what was then the racecourse of the Liverpool Hunt Club, Hoylake 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. It was at Hoylake in 1930 that the legendary Bobby Jones won the second leg of his famous “Grand Slam” when he won the Amateur and Open Championships of both Britain and the United States in the same year.
